Took my son to play office staff was great. Greens were wrecked but most importantly a fivesome with four carts in front of me slow play and we chose to quit after 12 holes.

Both courses can sell out and get busy on weekends. We apologize you decided to turn it in for the day. We do hope you make it back, and please don't hesitate to bring up your concerns with staff. Thank you.

Being a single player the starter placed me with two guys who were walking the course, it was a busy day with full foursomes in front and behind. The marshall’s did an excellent job of moving everyone through the course, they we’re visible, and courteous. Our group was not rushed and the pace of play was comfortable,

Back in the 70s when we hosted the Houston Open there weren't many houses. Still a fun course though. Hope you enjoyed your day and make it back to play El Dorado, which was recently renovated.

Loved this course!

The fairways were nice and manicured on every hole. Felt like it was a good mix of challenging holes to keep it interesting and fun.

I would recommend this course to anyone who likes to drive the ball long. I played on a week day so it was wide open and the golfers playing were all singles and playing with a great pace. It does have a lot of water hazards so if your not good at keeping it straight you’ll be a little frustrated.

Thank you Quail Valley for the fun day! See you soon....

I have played the La Quinta course many, many times, as I have lived on the golf course for many years. I like to play here, for the convenience, but nothing ever gets fixed or improved, so I also play other places. The new Golf Shop / Civic Center was a great addition, but a few minor repairs, and routine maintenance, in obvious areas, could make this a desirable destination for players and events, which with more players, would likely "improve the bottom line". They already have the equipment and personnel. Make it great!

The course overall is in great condition even for a city owned course. I'll go here any day over Greatwood... my only concern was that the greens needed some work but you could tell they've been trying to get them back up to shape and my saying that in no way means they are unplayable. I'll definitely go back.

Overall nice experience. Bunkers and greens needs attention, greens are slow even down hill putts you have to hit. Some bunkers have almost no sand in places and impossible to get a wedge under the ball. We had a 5 ball in front of us and waited on each and every t-box. Played Eldorado previously, on the day a 2 ball in front of us, a 1 ball behind us and another behind them, we were a 3 ball and had to rush, why didn't the starter make up 4 balls?

Thank you for coming back to play La Quinta. We hear you on the bunkers and greens... If you can believe it, we just started a revamp of the bunkers and green complexes after this years tumultuous weather. Hope you make it back to La Quinta or El Dorado, and we'll continue to work with our starters/marshals.

I'm from Louisiana and currently working in Houston. Not a bad course and a cool layout in the subdivision. I expected greens to be better for price and establishment, bunkers could use some care. Sharpetown city course has better greens, Cypress Lake awesome and Cinco Ranch is real nice.

I love the convenience of this course and the wide fairways. The grounds are well maintained. Could use more watering stations. I booked a family of 4 for a 10:30a tee time using Golfnow. Just so, the La Quinta club knows, Golfnow has not returned my many calls to customer service to get clarification why the HAPPYHOLIDAYS promo did not work. When you go to the Golfnow website, the email button doesn't work. As far as I'm concerned this was a scam and I would hope that the Quail Valley club is not associated with it.
