Bad day at the golf course

The condition of the course has horrible. The course always has some drainage issues with rain but this was the worst I have seen. The course should have been closed. Standing water and boggy conditions even in fairway. We actually lost balls in the water. It was difficult l to find any playable places on the course. I would not recommend playing this course when it rains and not until summer so that greens and fairways have a chance to be repaired.

Wet Day

The course was very wet and cart path only. I as surprised they let anyone play with fairways under water everywhere. I will return later this year when it will be dry. Loved the layout.

Dint okay this course after Rain.

This course doesn't drain well. It rain two days before and it was still soaked. Puddles everywhere, muddle and poor conditions. Paying for the entire course at about $60 for cart path only was a waste. Make sure you ask if cat path only or not.

In my opinion not worth it for this pricing. Just my 4 sentence.

At last.

Nearly a week in houston before we found anything like a good golf course. At checkin we were asked if we would like to swap to the El Dorado as this was in better condition. Inspired choice, great layout all to ourselves. Round in 3 hours and would definitely recommend. Remember, this review is for the El Dorado.

Bad Drainage avoid playing when wet

Played day after Thanksgiving and notified it was cart path only but got a hot deal so since it was paid for had to go ahead and play.

I am unsure how much rain they have had but area has been fairly dry for 5+ days and there was still standing water in many fairways and the rough by cart paths was like a marsh. Pace of play was poor because of conditions and took almost 5 1/2 hours.

Nice moderately priced course under good conditions but avoid if wet and cart path only. Not even worth the hot deal price under these conditions, looks like needs another week to dry out.

We apologize that the conditions weren't optimal, even for the hot deal that you scored. It's been a consistently wet fall here, and we had a decent amount of rain on the courses leading up to Thanksgiving. La Quinta is a traditional, flat layout so it does indeed hold water. We hope you make it back for another try when it warms up and dries out or play El Dorado, which is a newer, more-modern design that drains faster.

WHAT THE HECK WITH THE GREENS?

The greens were in horrible shape. The worst I've ever seen them. This is one of my favorite places to play but was not happy this round. With all the rain we've gotten and then being elevated, they should have been in great shape.

Johnny we apologize the greens aren't up their their usual standard. We're working on enlarging the green complexes (edges) and all the rain has wreaked havoc on our mowing schedule. Although elevated, often the greens are too soft to mow or even roll. When we do get at them, they are rolling great these days, so we hope you make it back.

No Drainage

Fairways are in very poor condition due to rains. Poor drainage on almost all holes made it very difficult to find a dry lye to play from. Cart path only, combined with a couple very slow groups combined for a 5+ hour round.

We apologize for the wet conditions from all the rain we've been getting. It doesn't speed up play either. The traditional design of La Quinta is flat to reduced water usage. Nonetheless, we hope you make it back if/when the season dries up to give La Quinta another try or play El Dorado (new/modern design). Thank you for coming out.

We know an advanced player like yourself needs perfect greens so we hope you make it back after the top dressing is complete. Thank you for giving us a shot, and we hope to see you again.

Excellent condition

This is the 2nd time Ive played the La Quinta course at Quail Valley, Ive played the El Dorado course a lot more. Even though it rained Saturday and it was cart path only the course was in excellent shape, from the tee box to the green. The bunkers for the most part had water but most were playable. Would definitely play thw course again amd recommend it!

Nice challenge

First time playing and found the course to have a nice layout with a good variety of shot experiences. The course has both trees and water so errant shots will be penalizing. Greens were sandy and being aerated at the time we played, so that was a disappointment. I look forward to playing it again under better circumstances.
