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.

Eldrorado is a fun course that is a challenge. Staff is always pleasant and helpful, food is outstanding. The course is always in in excellent condition. At $30 it is well worth the drive from Big Rapids

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!
