Nice little Par 3/4 course 62

Staff is awesome. Course is well maintained. It’s short but fun. Only thing is the holes aren’t numbered or labeled which makes newcomers and even some second timers have difficulty following correct route. Love this course though.

Loved it!

It was a little hot today with temps in the mid 90's, but it still felt pretty good out there! Ot was a light breeze in the air :-)
The course was in great condition except for a little high grass in some areas.

I'm not a great golfer and usually plays in the 90's, but we sill had allot of fun :-)
We (My girlfriend and I) will e back as soon as we can...

First time at this course

Upon arrival, pro shop looked closed. Once entering, it was rundown and uninviting. There were no signs pointing to hole #1 and no signs on each hole indicating yardage. Fairways were in fairly good shape and greens were excellent.

An Enjoyable Golf Course at a Reasonable Price

If you want to get out there and play some enjoyable golf at a reasonable price, then El Cariso GG may be just the place for you.

Currently the course is in very good shape, the pace of play is excellent, the staff is very accomodating, and the green fees are quite affordable.

Are there better golf courses to be played out there? Yes, of course there are. But you might find it difficult to beat the combination of course conditions, pace of play, friendly staff, and reasonable pricing currently offered at El Cariso.

Bottom Line... This place simply works, and makes for a very enjoyable round of golf.

So, if you're a recreational golfer who's up for trying something new, then I would suggest that you give it a go at El Cariso.

El Cariso - Nice Quick Round!

Played a nice quick round at El Cariso this morning. Only took 3 hours and the course was in good shape! Only complaint was that the greens were a bit firm but really good to put on! Nice to start at 7:30am and be finished at 10:30am :-)

Improving

The fairways and greens have been noticeably improving in the past few months. The course is looking nice. I enjoy the pace at this course. I can play solo and push through 18 holes in a couple hours. I would like to see the club house remodeled and opened back up.
