The courses, designed by architects Harry and David Rainville are “Butterfield Stage” and “Chino Creek”. Both are 18- hole championship golf courses. Early in California statehood pioneers traveled to the wild-west. The stagecoach made the 2700 mile journey from St. Louis to San Francisco. The “Butterfield Stage” course was named after a stagecoach stop local to the golf course property, the “Chino Creek” course was named for the rivers and creeks the stagecoach crossed. The El Prado property carries an early California/Spanish theme with mission tile, arched openings, large roof overhangs and colorful patio areas. Both golf courses are enjoyable for all levels of players. With wide-open fairways, large mature trees and just enough bunkers and water holes to make your day memorable. El Prado Golf Course is said to be user friendly and easy to walk over the most gentle of rolling hills. Over the many years the courses have had rave reviews on the appearance and playability of the putting greens. While playing at El Prado it's not unusual to see Red Tail Hawks, migratory ducks, birds and Canadian geese. Stand still, take a panoramic look around. You might see a coyote scampering across the fairway in the early morning. El Prado’s mission is to provide an atmosphere that will guarantee your experience will be well remembered. So whether you are planning a golf outing, fundraiser, wedding reception or party, the professionals at El Prado are eager to help

Rated 3.4 out of 5 by 206 reviewers.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Challange The course is nice and long and the greens were in excellent shape, my observation is that the fairways were a little rough and bumpy. The rough was too rough, too easy to loose your ball in. For the price I expected a little nicer course, not horrible and I would play it again if they ran a special price. September 27, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Golf ball monster :) The course looks great for the water conditions greens are green fairways are nice BUT.. My friends and I are not professionals but we play anywhere from 8-12 over on courses similar to this BUT this on this one if you hit a foot off the fairway good luck the rough is at least 4-8 inches high we lost 8 balls that were a foot off the fairway. So if you don't hit the fairway good luck. Staff wasn't great not energetic mostly rude except the marshal (old guy with a hat) cool guy. Other than that good course September 24, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by great value Can't find nother course this good for the price. The course layout is challenging and fun. September 23, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Greens are in good shape. I really enjoy playing both courses at El Prado. The course is fairly forgiving with plenty of parallel fairways. My son is a beginner. This is a good course for both of us to play. Thank you September 14, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good golf Good amount of golf here. Two courses and good practice facility, full size range with grass tees, putting and chipping greens. Heard that greens are always good here, which lived up to my expectations. Course was in good condition inspire drought, fairways nice and rough even thick. Liked the layout and will comeback to play the other course. Friendly staff. September 13, 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by Butterfield First time I have played here in over 20 years. Played the front 9 Blues (6568/124/71.3) in 1.5 hours on a GN Hot Deal for $13.49 with RGM2525. A freak thunderstorm came through the area and they closed the course due to flooding & lightning, so we did not get to play the back 9 today. Every part of this course is not nearly in as good of condition as it's sister Chino Creek course that I played last week. The tees had good coverage but many needed divot repair. One was so unlevel I used all the divot repair mix on our cart to at least partially fill in 2 large sink holes right between the blue tee markers. The fairways looked to be about 55% lush, 30% thin and 15% hardpan. I can't comment on the actual lies because I never managed to get my ball in one even though they are generous in size. The rough was about 1/3 lush, 1/3 thin and 1/3 hardpan. Not very penal, very playable. I managed to hit 4/7 of the par 4 & par 5 greens out of it. I was not in any traps. They looked adequate and reasonably well maintained. There is not alot of slope on these medium size green complexes. The greens look nice, reasonably smooth and hold shots well, but putt medium slow. Many have kikuyu creeping in around the outer edges. The customer service was excellent. Quick & efficient check-in. We were provided with a "rain check" to come back and play the back 9 because they closed the course. Completely the opposite golf experience of Champions @ the Retreat where I played this morning. There, on many shots you had to be precise with your distance and accuracy or your ball was gone... here you can grip it & rip it and usually not get in too much trouble even if you stray well off the fairways. I remembered most of the holes and it's a fun layout. The layout reminds me of the Woodley/Encino type courses in the SF Valley. No frills with no holes that make you go wow. But not any horrible designs either, with many straight holes. If the Butterfield course conditions matched the Chino Creek conditions, I would work this course in once in awhile for some variety. However, based on what I experienced today, I would not drive far to come play Butterfield. September 11, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Greens were in good shape Fairways had dirt patches in some spots but other than that it's was a good round September 8, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Can't beat the prices! Whether Chino Creek or Butterfield Stage, I jump on any chance to get amazing riding deals from Golfnow for either track. Yesterday it was Chino Creek for $12 at 10:58 AM. Are you kidding me? Fantastic deal. Where else could you exercise the long game for less than $20. Unfortunately, the only thing missing was a Marshall who could help with the 5some ahead of us and the 4 some behind us continuously hitting into us. Other than that, for a good challenge and a nice day, I always recommend taking advantage of the Hot Deals here. PS - Pro Shop staff are TRUE GENTLEMEN.. They make everything easy, doable, possible, and get your round started in a great mind-set. September 3, 2015
