Beautiful 18 hole par 3 course that is in very good shape. Old course with huge trees, it helps if you are able able to work the ball both ways on some of the holes because the trees are so mature. My usual group is pretty good players and we all had a blast playing this course, great for a skins game. It is lighted so we played most of the holes under the lights which was really neat. This is also a perfect course for beginners and kids. After golf they have an older bar/restaurant with a good beer selection, nice TV's and the food is very good. They also have a putt putt course that looks fun but we didn't have time to play it.
Had a 10 AM Tee time. It was great to get out from the threat/smell of the Lilac Fire.

Excellent practice areas; driving range, chipping area and large practice putting green.

Recommend you play from the tees that your game can handle as this is a very challenging layout.

Greens: smooth, medium to fast speed and firm. Very challenging contours.

Fairways: some very thin areas from cart traffic otherwise playable.

Rough: 1 -3" high, not very penal.

Traps: raked and very playable.

Good GPS system in the carts.

Marshall visited us twice on each nine.

POP: just over 4 1/2 hours.

I am beginning to like this course the more I play it. Recommend.
Early tee time at TP North with ideal conditions. Couple from Detroit joined us and felt bad that they were heading home on Wednesday to a high of 22 degrees. Not much to add to the previous reviews. Good test of golf
Walked the Blacks today 12/11/2017 teeing off 30 minutes before our scheduled twilight time of 12 noon. Joined by Brian. Our POP was 3 hrs 30 minutes not waiting on any shots until hole 15 where we caught a log jam and finished with a nice twosome for the last 3 holes. Weather was in the low 70's with a slight breeze(hardly any wind) and sunny and semi-smoky conditions due to the close by fires. Nice staff at check-in. Had 10 minutes or so to use the nice practice facilities. Paid their standard twilight rate of $29.00 walking.

Have not played here for a little bit. The biggest difference I saw were the greens today. They were in very nice shape--had that glassy December quick vibe and a couple putts and chips could really roll out on players today. Not to many ballmarks but a couple foot marks here and there as even though they putted quicker the greens here are still soft and hold irons like absolute darts. Rated 8/10.

Fairways provided nice cushion lies--would say color of the fairways have turned half dormant brown and half green. Still always a pleasure to hit from them. For December these fairways are better than your normal courses. Rated 7/10

The tees were level, some par 3 black tees with divot damage--number 17 you come to mind(probably use 2 full bottles of divot mix from my playing partner's cart. Overall par 4 and 5 tees in very nice shape. Rated 7/10

The rough just outside the fairways is very green and lush and in beautiful shape. Rated 8/10. Of note they knocked and weed wacked down many native areas not in play just in front of tees and around some native areas I am assuming due to the nearby fires and the way the Santa Ana winds blow from Santa Paula directly to this course.

Was in greenside bunker on #8 and #18 that contained nicely raked damper beach sand that was easy to get out of and thump. Rated 7.5/10.

Great layout--not a lot of people on the course today--recommended.
I played here on Saturday 12-9-17, with GK Events. I want to say thanks Johnny for setting up this event, it was a good experience to play here...Now let me start from arriving there. The customer service is top notch, from FREE valet (haha those that didn't realize and walked to the Club House), bag service is spot on. The walk through the complex is nice. You can tell this is a $$$$$ nice place. The free range and practice area is nice. I played with Dave, Ron, and Joel. Started on #5, so it was okay by me to be away from a crowd with the 1st swing for the day. The fairways are firm, flat, and fast (extra bounces/roll) though it did not look green and beautiful, the fairways where alright. The rough was short and playable, easy to spot your ball, and hit out of. The course had bunkers located in locations, right where I hit...bunkers throughout the course where strategically placed, but avoidable if play smart. The greens where fast and BUMPY AND SANDY. The course layout is Resort designed, a bit simple for my liking, but it was fun to have played it. I'm glad I did not pay rack rate, because it would not be worth the $95-$175 they charge. I probably would not play here again, I don't even recommend it to golfers that like a challenging layout, because it was a bit boring. But thanks Johnny for the opportunity to play it.
Played 12/3 and this is a NICE course. Yes I missed the turn to the course but no big deal. Walked up and got right out, passed a two ball about the forth hole and never saw anyone after that until 18. The course was a little wet but they have had rain all week (but none today). Great layout with a lot of fun holes, some water and some forced carries and a great drive through a small rain forest. More then worth the drive from Honolulu.
SLOW!!!!! Played 12/2 and went as a single and for the first 10 holes things were fine then I ran into BACK NINERS! Not bad enough they were five sums but there was a six sum! The course is in ok shape for a muni and worth the price but five hrs. no thank you.
Ok, I lied it's 30 minutes from Waikoloa Village but worth the drive anyway. Shot 44 on the front :( and 37 on the back :). I don't know who showed up to play the back but I like him.
Played today in POP of 3 H. Course is in great shape this week. Tee boxes were all perfect (IMO); fairways are browning out (kikyu grass) but still decent lies and great roll; some rough outside of fairways and around greens, is sticky; bunkers are all good; greens are rolling just great (all of them). Customer service was excellent at all levels.
Played 12-11-17 teeing off as a single at 7am and finishing in about 2 1/2 hours. Tee boxes were in good shape mostly level with good coverage. Fairways were and little on the thin side with some tight lies but not to bad. Rough is not much longer than the fairways so not much of a factor. Was in two greenside bunkers that had nice brown sand. Greens were rolling medium speed and a little bumpy from whenever the punched last. Course is in descent winter shape and has a good mix of holes which makes it fun to play.
I called courses looking for a first time off and it seemed everywhere I called they were very busy. However El Prado indicated they were wide open in the morning, so off I went.

Decided to play Chino rather than Butterfield. Dennis is shop is wonderful, always a delight to talk with. Always accommodating. No pace of play issue, although I decided to follow another single and hoped he would play quickly (He did) Played two balls and finished in well less than 3 hours walking.

Greens are the best part of the course. Fairways were surprisingly good. Rough was fair to poor, depending upon where the ball ended up. Bunkers had plenty of sand and were decent. Tee boxes also better than expected.

So long as your expectations aren't too high, El Prado does not disappoint. It's inexpensive, quick, basic golf. Much like I grew up playing in the Midwest, minus about a million trees.
Back to back rounds on the Ike this past weekend (12/9 & 10). Course in very good condition, tee to green. Rough has been cut, fairways open to cart traffic on most all holes but 4, 6, & 17 plus the par 3's. Greens are semi-soft in the AM but firm up quick, still holding a decently struck shot. Tricky on the speed, especially downhill chips which can run out if you're not uber precise.

Ventured into a couple FW bunkers which were well maintained as were the GS bunkers. Some thin areas were found in the shady side of the fairways, so you had to pick 'em clean. Overall, a great challenge on the Ike if you want to test your game. Recommended, but pricey. PoP was around 5 hrs or less each day.
