Course & Restrooms need a lot of help

El Prado was a nice course at one time but playing it this past week was kind of disappointing. It's really been neglected. Faucets in restrooms are ready to fall off both on and off the course, messy facilities, course could use some TLC. At least the employees are still GREAT at the Pro Shop, Restaurant, Cart Shack, Refreshment Cart and Landscapers.

Challenge and reward

Course length and layout can be a challenge, while providing the opportunity to recover from most situations. Tees, fairways and greens are always in nice condition. Reasonably priced, and staff and other golfers are friendly - adding to the overall golf enjoyment.

Great day of golf

This is a fun track with some challenging water hazards. Doesn't play long so the average golfer can generally reach the greens with irons. Really great staff and the best value in the inland empire.

Average at best

This course isn’t in good condition at the moment whatsoever. A lot of the course is dirt and crabgrass. There really isn’t a difference between a lot of the fairways and the rough. A lot of the fairways are covered with crabgrass. The course amenities are fine and the cost wasn’t a lot but I just wouldn’t recommend it over many other course in the area. I would say it’s in the poorest condition out of 10 courses or so that I’ve played recently in socal over the past few months.

Butterfield

Good and fun layout for a local public course. Although the fairways had numerous bare spots, however the greens were in great shape as usual. Green side bunkers, well, you could probably use a putter to get out.

Prices Have Really Gone up!

The Chino Creek side had punched the greens so this course had waiting at every hole. We waited 10-15 minutes between shots. After playing the back side in 3 hours , then played the whole back again
and it wasn't so busy.

Question, what has changed about these courses that twilight after 2 on weekend is now $31?

Good course for the hot deal price only

Played a 9:50 tee time. Weather was blazing hot around 97-102 degrees. Plenty of shade to take shelter under, which was nice.
Greens rolled slow but felt okay. Some green conditions were really rough; I’m talking bare patches and simple dirt on some holes. Bunkers had almost no sand, was more akin to hitting off dirt. Fairways were mostly okay, no concerning spots. Only teeboxes were well maintained.
Some holes smelled awful, like a mixture of horse excrement and manure. Possibly from the stagnant water on some holes. Those were rough to stomach.
I would not play here for more than $17 which was the hot deal price.
