BLIND SHOT GOLF

Dont' play here. 15 good holes. Three holes have bad blind shots where the reeds come into the fairway or you cannot see where fairway runs out. You cannot drive up to see this because of the bad narrow bridges, that could fall apart at any second and no place to turn around if you came back to your tee. Plaques that say how far it is to a hazard are grossly incorrect. Some didn't even have a hazard that the plaque said it did! Gimic golf! Single digit handicappers don't like to lose balls with straight hit shots! DON'T PLAY THIS COURSE!

Pace of Play

The pace of play at Eldorado was terrible. It took my partner and I over five hours to play 18 holes. No rangers in sight. Play behind us was a group of six men who played loud music, swore constantly, appeared to be intoxicated and acted unsafely by loading four people on golf carts and did golf cart drag racing.

Highly Recommended

Course is appropriately challenging for all levels, with 5 tee boxes offered. It was a hot day, mid-to-upper 80s and the greens were cruising! Even with the dry, hot weather over the recent weeks, the course was beautiful and green and well maintained. You can tell they take their mowing and watering seriously. Staff was also very friendly and helpful.

Better Courses at this Price

This is a well kept course for the most part, but it lacks the touches of a typical course in the $69 range.

Pros: some fun holes, nice greens and fairways, challenging back 9

Cons: unkept bunkers with weeds and rocks in them, rickety bridges, layout is jammed together with many criss crossing holes, no care for what’s going on with pace of play or even monitoring of it or player conduct, inconsistent green speeds (some would actually plug, while others were firm)

If you can get this course for something in the $39 range, then I would suggest playing it, but at the full rate there are better courses to hit within an hour.

Quality Course, Great Service

It was a cool Sunday Morning that didn't see too many out on the course. My Wife and I manage to get 18 in without having to wait on any holes to hit. The GM and staff were extremely nice, attentive, and great with advising us about the course since it was our first time playing there. Course conditions were good and didn't have any trouble navigating around. Would come back and play when we are in the area for sure.

Best course in Cadillac by far

In a town with some pretty good golf courses, Eldorado stands out as the best. The conditions are always spectacular and the greens are a great challenge. The layout doesn't bore you, and there is enough difficulty to keep good golfers entertained, while still providing an opportunity for the less-talented. There are a few forced carries, but those make the course a blast to play. I would highly recommend this golf course. The staff is friendly and it's located in a great spot. Add this to your next Northern Michigan golf trip!

Great course

First timer. Very well taken care of with a mix of tight and open fairways. Challenging hazard locations to make you need to choose your shots wisely. VERY challenging fast greens. Fun, beautiful course.

Eldorado

Always one of my favorites. Course is always in great shape and the staff are very helpful. Pat the G.M. is the best and is always a great host. I play every year there and always come away with positive experience. The only thing I don't like is the 1st and last hole as I'm getting too old to carry those hazards!!!! LOL

CLASSIC, Like the Cars

Although misty and cool, the course conditions were in great shape. Greens were quick, but true. Shot one of my best rounds on the front nine. We (my son and I) partnered up with another 2 some to help with pace of play. It was the start of 3 great days of golf!

A fair but good challenge

Having played the course last year I was anxious to play it again. Played it twice shot 91 and 92. I am a 15 handicap played from the white tees. Very enjoyable.
