Enjoyable friendly round

Choose Butterfield GC with a good rate for a weekday round of golf with a buddy. Buddy had car problems and called to bail on me at the last minute. I became the third wheel to a couple other dudes near my tee time. Had a great enjoyable time playing with them.
Course greens were surprisingly in good shaped, on a warm day, and the ball rolled held on approached shots and rolled well on putts. Fairways can always use improvement, lots of bare patches, so don’t hesitate to improve your lie, but overall I would give fairways an average rating.
Pace of play first 9 holes was ok, had to wait for senior league to tee off and get a shot ahead, but last 9 holes had no delays or hold ups. Marshall on course to monitor and encourage groups to keep pace which is appreciated. 1 cart girl working hard and came by at least 6+ times over 18 holes so plenty of opportunities to buy a snack or drink. Another relaxing a fun round at El Prado!

Good day for golf

Enjoyed the day...cloud cover kept the heat in the high 80's, low 90's...some areas of course drying out due to the constant dryness and heat. Would like to go out earlier as daylight savings is approaching.....if no one is on tee, we should be allowed to play earlier.

Stinks

Odors from cow manure and the water reclamation plant (sewer treatment) were especially harsh on the back 9..If it wasn't one disgusting smell, it was the other. Pace of play was slow and no marshals to be found. Patches of dirt for the fairway. Friendly staff and no mask requirement is the only upside. I'll try Chino Creek next time. I was told you don't have the smells to contend with on that course.

Waiting to Tee Off

For some reason, if you have made your tee time via Golfnow, you have to wait until your tee time to tee off. This sounds reasonable, but when you are waiting around for 45 minutes and no one is teeing off and you are ready and willing to tee off, you can’t because you made your tee time via Golfnow!! Very frustrating.

Great course but no ameneties

This is a great course to play but all amenities are non existent. No water, bathrooms are dirty, no ball cleaners. There are water features which are not maintained which results in a lot of bugs while you are golfing.

6 hour round

Kevin the GM is not a very understanding or nice individual. Pace of play was terrible due to 5 minute tee times and poor marshaling being done on a Saturday. Allow golfers to only tee off once the first group has left the green of #1 guys what a concept….

Good day on a very hot day

Pace was slow, but steady....the hot, dry weather is slowly drying out the fareways. A couple greens are still.recovering from the oil leakage dripping across the greens often resulting in putts being misdirected as they cross rut...overall a good day
