Thank you... and you should get out more than once a month! If you do, hope to have you back here.
I got there early to find that a big group plays everyday starting at 1130. Since eight groups of four or five golfers playing for money ahead of me meant slow pace and maybe not finishing before dark. The starter offered the other course which I played. Unfortunately it was very muddy, cart path only. At least the marshal was friendly.
El Dorado is a popular course and as much as we all might want it to ourselves, it is often pretty busy. Hope you make it back to play El Dorado.
Thank you for playing at Quail Valley again. Hope you make it back sooner than later.
Great condition fairways and greens compare to other courses this time of year. Overall great except greens on 17 is really bad.
Thank you. Hopefully we'll earn that 5th star when we deal with the trees that are having a negative impact on the 17th green.
Sunday Afternoon @ the Eldorado
Course was crowded but the pace of play moved pretty good thanks to the Marshalls. We were able to get off the paths, which has not happened in a while. Fairways were in pretty good shape, the bunkers were playable and the greens were ok, just a little bumpy. A pretty challenging course to say the least, it had been a while but will be worth another trip to play. I would recommend this course.
We appreciate the compliments as well as your patience on busy days. Thank you for coming down from Magnolia and hope you make it back again soon.
Love the course
Gets me in trouble on the last five
Have to learn to play them better
Love this course But...
Great course. Love the layout. Pretty good condition for winter except the bunkers they were muddy and wet from the rain. Would definitely recommend this course.
Thank you for the positive review. All the rain this year has been reeking havoc on our bunkers. We're on it!
Solid! Many thanks.
Thank you. Hope you make it back again.
Great course. Challenging but fair. Well worth the money.
Thank you very much... see you next time!
Don't go here!!!
I can't believe they allow groups of 5 to play this course, but that's not all, we were behind 5 groups of 5 on a Tuesday when we thought we would get in a decent round in under 4 hours!!! And, when asking the Marshal why they allow this, his excuse was that they have been doing this for 35 years! In 35 years, you can't figure out how to make rounds for others pleasant?! I can help, break these groups up in groups of 4, or at least space out their tee times so others can enjoy this course. It's a shame because I like this course, but won't be back. There are plenty of other courses around Houston where you can get in a round in under the time it takes to dry paint!
Sounds like you like the course and many other groups do too as you found out. We're a great value, so we hope you make it back. Indeed we have allowed 5somes since becoming a public golf club, but our player assistants do their best to keep play moving when possible or offering up options to guests in a hurry. El do is such a great course it's too bad anyone would be in a rush around the track.
Great Golf Course
El Dorado, what can I say, either you love it, when you're doing well, or you hate it, when you're not doing well. No fault of the GC itself, it's a challenging and great GC. Both fairways and greens were in good to very good shape. Will definitely play again.
Solid! Many thanks!
Long course El Dorado
Due to recent rains, fairways were soft, greens were slow, rough was high enough to not find a ball. I’m 68 and play the white tees. On #17, after too many tee shots into the drink on previous rounds, I moved up to the red tee. The prevailing SE wind funnels in just beyond tee, where divers can be seen collecting doomed drives. My shot landed dry near the fairway trap (why a trap on the right side? Not tough enough?) That fade left me with an unpalatable approach over more water, over 150 yards., Wise again, I put my range ball into the water just shy of safety. Next time instead of a fairway metal I’ll try to hammer my 7 metal. Or better yet, try a riskier tee shot closer to the water on the left. That all said, I like the challenges on this course and that the Marshalls are active and ice is available at the 10th.
Thank you for being a regular out here, and we all appreciate you playing the appropriate tees. This course and golf in general is tough no matter where we play. See you next time!
Great Golf Course
Greens are great, fairways are great. Manage the GC or it will eat your lunch, and balls. Was fun, but too many OBs. no fault of the GC, just me. :-(
Thank you very much! I'm sure you will manage your way around the course better the next time.
Oldie but Goodie
The holes with water can make your knees knock a bit, so you need to get the distances right and hit crisp shots. I was wondering if something wrong with gps on #10.
There were invasive grasses and weeds accumulating on some holes like St. Augustine and nutsedge. M.S.M.A. is need and Sedgehammer.
For what I paid, it was great value golfing.
Thank you Superdave, and we're thrilled you thought it was a great value. We always chasing down those invasive grasses on the edges, so we hope to have you back again.
Friendly staff difficult course but enjoyable long par 3s
Thank you for visiting us from Victoria! Hope you swing by again.
Thank you for the positive review and really appreciate you coming back in this heat!
