“Very nice golf course”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2012

It is a tight layout, with lots of trouble if you wander from the fairway, but in great shape, and lots of fun.

“Nice layout, usually in great shape”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2012

When I played there in February, I was a little disappointed in the condition. Usually the fastest greens in the area. It was a little slow and a lot of the greens were under repair. A very pretty course. The service is usually good, too. It is a very tight, tough course.

“10 yrs ago this great lay out was a jewel It is in horrible shape after years of neglect.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2012

The greens are still playable but the overall conditions are awful. The range is a dog run. The tees and fairways are bear. I would not play there again for free . It may be beyond saving, particularly in this economy. It's a shame but a waste of time.

“This Course Would Rate Highest if Condition was Good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2012

My wife and I have stayed in this area for the past 4 winters and we always play El Diablo at least twice each visit. But every year you can see more deterioration in course condition. The fairways have little or no grass, the bunkers are in poor shape, the tees are not cut and the greens just OK. All the beautiful flowers, fountains and waterfalls are not there. The only item that brings us back is the terrific and challenging layout. We had two low handicap friends play with us this trip and they raved about the natural features and tremendous layout. It is no problem to get on the course and the rates are very reasonable, but I would pay 50% more if the course condition was better. Hopefully, the economy will turn around to allow this to happen.

“Great layout”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2012

While often in sub par condition this is a great layout that's well worth a game if you are in the area
