Outstanding Staff Experience

The course is great, fun challenging layout and well cared for, for time of year, have written this before and still holds true. This review is more to highlight the staff - proshop and marshalls who were not only extremely friendly but above and beyond helpful. Can't say it'll be everyone's experience, but it was definitely mine, so many thanks to them!

Cold wet day but still fun!

Course was in great condition, staff was very friendly and we had a great day of golf regardless of the weather.

Wish the beverage cart had more offerings (no liquor) but other than that it was great.

Tough course!

Nice course but extremely slow pace

I enjoyed the course. It's well maintained. The greens are fast. The biggest issue was the pace. There didn't seem to be an overwhelming amount of people playing but it just wasn't moving along.

Thank you and apologies for your play being slow. Being a great value, we often get super-busy when the weather has been cooperating. Great pic and hope to have you back again.

Fast Round

When it’s not and a Thursday, we felt like we had the entire course to ourselves, which we really did. Great round, beautiful course. The only negative is the brown water. I doubt much can be done about that.

Great course

I play El Dorado 2-3 times a month and this course will challenge the above average golfer. I always find myself after my round saying if would have played a couple holes better. I could got more out of round and scored better. This what keeps me coming back . I will see you again El Dorado.

Never play on Sunday

They allow five-somes on Sunday. We were a twosome behind 3 fivesomes and the greens are aerated. Not a good day.

Nice course...but

Nice course, but definitely not for the casual golfer. I found this course VERY challenging as there are narrow fairways and water on nearly every hole. Fairways were in good shape. However, the greens were aerated recently (staff did not tell our group). Greens were bumpy as Jamaican streets and slick as ice. Although most people have this course rated high, I dont think I'll be back anytime soon.

Great Golf Course

El Dorado is quite challenging. But a great golf course. One of my favorites in the Houston area. Heads up, greens will be punched on 7/13/20.

A nice course.

It was my first time playing at the El Dorado. The course is nice. The course had lots of water "bunkers" (I'm no expert on golfing terminology). The grass wasn't green as I expected, but definitely looking forward to playing the course again.
