Developers eventually had their way with this cow pasture on the fringe of Houston. Loaded with native pecans and oaks and supplemented with even more transplanted trees, the terrain is ideal for golf, with two creeks and five natural lakes on the property. In fact, it's good enough to host the PGA Tour's Houston Open in 1973 and 1974.

The traditional El Dorado Course plays to a par 70 and features five par 3s that go 190-yards-plus from the tips. Jay Riviere designed the back nine.

Jeff Blume managed the redesign and complete renovation of the El Dorado Course in 2009.

    This course has an awesome layout. With lots of water, it's pretty tough but fair if you play the right tees. If the fairways were narrowed up and the rough grown out, this course could host a PGA event. Though it does 5 par-3s, they are all 200+ from the tips.

    The terrain is and undulations was unexpected to for the Houston area. They must have moved a lot of earth.

    Service is okay (not high-end), range could be better, but course conditions were solid when I played. All told, a really good value.

    If you are looking for a full day of golf, then by all means, book a tee time! Most days you can find 5-7 carts per hole. Yes! That's right you and 6 of your closest friends can play together! The marshals or management do not care! The more the merrier!
