We just returned from three weeks of playing at this course. Sadly, the clubhouse burned down and the pro shop was temporarily moved to the maintenance shed. Management and staff did all they could to make us feel welcome. We had no problem with tee times, and the course was in great shape. Fairways were well maintained, greens were lush,... More

Played course in march. Restaurant burned down in March. Had to take a golf cart across to the maintenance shed to pay for green fees.There was no mention of the fire when we called for starting times. Course needs work; greens were good but fairways were beginning to be over grown with weeds and foreign grasses but scenic views. Save... More

Loved the scenic track thru the woods - not the typical look for Florida - the greens were excellent. We look forward to a return visit when we vacation next year.

El Diablo is in great condition, greens were the best I've played in Central Florida this year! Last year the course needed work and clubhouse was almost non existent. This year it is clear that a significant investment has been made! Both the golf course and clubhouse are excellent. The full liquor bar was nice after round and the hiring... More

Course in very bad condition. People allowed to play who have no idea of either how to play or course etiquette. Slow play tolerated and inefficient marshalling. No clubhouse facilities.

Wow...played today and it is incredible condition. Played last year and course had much to be desired with condition. Looks like new General Manager and Superintendent have turned this around and quick! Outstanding greens...difficult but fair and a must play. Great food after round in a completely different setting...relaxing!

After reading some reviews on this site, I was a little worried about my trip to El Diablo, but my fears were allayed immediately after arriving. If this course was in a slump a year or so ago, they've made an amazing comeback. This was easily one of the most beautiful pieces of land that I've played on. The course... More

Nestled in the wilds of centeral Florida, this slice of Golfdome is as challenging as you want it to be. Playing long, you'll see wildlife, along with sand, water, maybe find a lost ball or two...or three! Play last week was great, greens in excellent shape, fairways very good. Play was fast - just like we love it - with... More

El Diablo has struggled for several years. The staff is very friendly, but the course needs alot of work to bring it back to Golf Digest status. The greens were the best they have been in years and that is where the praise ends. Tee boxes are uneven with lots of bare spots. The fairways are hit and miss on... More

The last reviser must be staff, cause I tried to play 2 weeks ago, and the course was closed for summer repair. Thinking it would be good to play when it reopened, I played today. It looks as tough there were no improvements, and it looked as tough no one had even mowed the course in several weeks. Greens okay,... More
