We recently golfed El Rio and although the fairways were adequate, the greens were the worst that our group has ever golfed on. Not sure if the greens were affected by some sort of blight but right now they have been painted with some sort...More

Should be arrested for impersonating a golf course. Decent layout and clubhouse, but the course, and especially the greens, in terrible shape. Certainly does not warrant the fees they charge for a course in this shape.More

Played El Rio Golf Club. It has a nice layout and fairways that are wide but not too wide. The greens had air-ration holes and caused some putting problems. The fairways were weak on grass. I still enjoyed playing and would play it again.

JJ gave me a golf lesson and he was great! He was patient and really gave me some good tips. Then we went in and had a beer and brats in the lounge. We will definitely go back and actually golf!

One of Laughlin/Bullhead City’s top 4 courses (in my humble opinion). A must if you have a few days of golf to take in the great courses.

The sign at the entrance calls this a country club, and that makes me laugh. The course has nice greens, but it may be the ugliest golf course I've ever played. It may be the first time I've ever wished there were houses lining the...More

I'm a beginner golfer and found this course to be very forgiving. The fairway was clear, the fringe was solid, and the greens were fast and there were a wide variety of hole layouts. I'll be back again!
