Great challenging value

The el dorado course was in really good shape for the amount of play we saw. The layout was challenging and tight with most holes offering water or OB if you ventured one way or the other. The greens played beautifully. They were receptive and rolled so well it was ridiculous. The facility overall is nice but the driving range needs help. They make you hit off old mats with some old nasty balls. Your better seeved hitting some chips and putts.

Good Value

The course is usually in decent shape, but keep in mind this is a municipal course that is quite inexpensive. You are not playing a pristine course, nor are you paytfor one. Bunkers sometimes not properly dressed anf greens have a few dead spots. Friendly golf says “ just move it a little “ if you are in a bad spot not your fault

Great Course, But....

Course was nice and in great shape, Staff was friendly. However, we had a 12:07 tee time and there was a ~20 minute back up at the first tee. Two 5-some groups in front of us. Not sure why that was allowed on a Saturday. By the 14th hole it wasn't too much of a problem, but getting started was slow.

Overall experience was a good one, and will be back!

November 17th

Perfect fall day for golf. Course in great fall condition. Even first hole with new drain pipe and construction equipment on fairway was not an issue. Tee boxes, fairways and greens in good shape.

Sunday October 20

Actually played LaQuinta today, not El Dorado. El Dorado had a small tournament going out ahead of me and nobody at all on La Quinta. Course is in excellent fall conditions. Most greens full and firm (there were 2 that were quite bare though). Good day for golf.

Really enjoyed it!

The course is relatively well kept and nicely designed. We played as a twosome and were not paired up with other golfers. We tee’d off just after a local high school match and just before the Astros played the Yankees in game 3 of the ALCS championship. We barely saw anyone on the course, besides the nice lady driving the refreshment cart.?Thank you for the open course Astro fans!

Played Eldorado on a Wednesday

First class pro shop and clubhouse. Plenty of ice available on a hot day with a heat index at 100. Beverage carts came frequently. White tees too far on #17 into that prevailing southeast wind. I always move up to gold on that tee. Lost some balls in the rough and greens were very slow on #11 thru 13... like they hadn’t been cut that day. Highest rough was on 18 past the water off the tee. I always like the ice available on the 10th tee.

Wrong Course

I booked El Dorado but ended up playing La Quinta. The twosome I was paired with teed off early and the groups in front and behind my time were foursomes. La Quinta had some gaps so I went out on it. Course was in very nice shape for first of September. Two greens were down to bare earth in spots but didn’t affect my putting. Also 12 (I think?) is having some drainage work done down right side but apart from not being able to drive down path, it was not a factor. An enjoyable round.

So hot I don’t think anybody wanted to be out today. Played as a line single and didn’t run into anybody. Apart from being a touch dry due to weather conditions the fairways and greens are in decent shape. Greens were recently aerated but didn’t affect roll too much.

This course has a very good layout

They had just punched the greens the day before otherwise I would have given a 5 star on condition. Fairways in great shape and bunkers in good condition. Played the same course 3 days prior and greens prior to punching were great.

Thank you. We appreciate your understanding regarding the punch. You should have been notified of the aeration when booking your tee time. If not, please contact management.
