The Duke At Rancho El Dorado Golf Course
This course has a nice layout, but is not looked after very well. Fairways and greens cut way too short and the course is NOT kept in good condition. Way overpriced for the product you get.....not worth a drive out from the city by any means.
Golfers have far better alternatives for the price......if you book it....you will be very disappointed.

Missing the details
This course has potential to be great, but the management and greens crew overlook key elements of the course. Tee markers are not uniform throughout the course, some are wood posts and others just painted rocks. Lots of areas, especially along cart paths that are continuously washed out and nothing has been done to improve that for years. Overseed this year did not go well either. Bunkers seem to have improved with heavier grain sand actually staying in the bunkers and not just being blown away by the wind. For the money, this course needs to elevate its game in order to keep me coming back, but seems to be just fine for the hacker snowbirds at the current price. So much potential.

I've always enjoyed playing this course. It is very user friendly off the tee but challenging enough on the greens; however, I just wish the course conditions were a little better. I've never really played it at excellent conditions. It's not so bad that I don't enjoy it. The practice facilities are good.

played with friends
somewhat disappointed with the idea that this was a desert course. All holes were lined with homes. The reviews had said that this was a top 20 course in Az but no where close to it. The biggest complaint is no marshals to maintain pace of play. Probably wouldn't make the effort to play it again although course was well maintained.

Overall a great experience. Worth the drive from Gilbert. This is the fourth time we have played there and we have never been disappointed. This is a bit more challenging as the holes are a bit longer than other courses we play but good course management can allow allow for a fun round. All the facilities were good to excellent.

I have played this course many times in years past and was disappointed in the condition of the course. Usually it was in great shape. fairways were thin with tight lies. Greens were just ok. The layout is fun to play and the staff is friendly. Doesn't appear to have had a good overseed this year. The price was reasonable for the condition. Not sure I will go back soon.

big price for sub standard conditons
How can a so called premiere course have so few ball washers and the existing ones are dry? Dry conditions and sandy grainy greens were a disappointment. Did not see a single maintenance staff in two rounds
