This is a nice course with quite a few challenges. Water and plenty of bunkers will challenge you game. Started at 12:40 and supposedly 2 groups of regulars started at 11. Caught them by hole six and thought they would let me play through since no one was in front of them. Nope. skipped three holes to play around them. Could of played all 18 before rain if I could of got through them.

Thank you for coming over from Deer Park. It's unfortunate that some golfers can be inconsiderate if they are playing slow. We do what we can to help everyone enjoy a day out. Thank you, and we hope you visit again.

El Dorado at Quail Valley Golf course is a fun but tough golf course. Manage your shot selection or things will quickly go downhill. Greens are in great shape. Rolls true. Got some long par 3s. But feels great if you can hit the green with your long irons. One of my favorite gc in Houston.

I love the layout of the course and I play it whenever I find it on sale. Greens might still be in a transition phase and grass hasn’t come in all the way. Other than that was in great shape. Even sand traps were raked with a good consistency!

Course and staff were great. Range was very good. Only problem with the course is that like a lot of courses thru neighborhoods there were a lot of street crossings. Played a lot of these types but have never in my life seen so many inconsiderate drivers. These people would literally run over you and never bother them. Good luck on crossings.

Thank you Andrew. We appreciate the compliments. There are a good number of street crossings in Houston's original master-planned community. They were built around the golf course, so we hope you make it back to play again.


"nice course but had a group of five players ahead of us - way too slow."

overall nice course and challenge layout. very satisfied and enjoyed play there. but somehow, there is a group of FIVE people played ahead of us. not only slow, but really slow. so we have to wait each hole until they cleared. not sure why the course allowed a group of FIVE to play in one group. other than that, all good and will come to play again.

Brian, we apologize that the play was slow for you but it seems like you enjoyed your visit here. We do appreciate the heads up because we do indeed allow fivesomes, and our course attendants are supposed to keep them moving along with the group in front of them or allow others to pass if need be. Thank you and hope to make Quail Valley one of your regular courses.
