"Hilly course presenting some nice challenges. You can probably play it 10 times and have 10 different feelings as your next shot will be heavily influenced by the ball location. Nice sea-views!" - hooker

 3.9 / 5 Chaparral Golf course played: 2015-05-05

"Played a twilight on this challenging course (hcp. 4). Welcomed by the very friendly staff at the pro-shop, we teed off for a tough round of golf. Most holes were good to very good, but some (due to the lack of space) simply not. Tee boxes basically the same story: OK, but some too small and some uneven. The greens and fairways, however, were fantastic and the pin positions (B) killing! El Chaparral is a golf course were a caddy book, a buggy and a low handicap is no luxury. Unfortunately, no on-course catering available (although promised and a catering-buggy in the parking). Pace of play should be monitored more closely, but still good value for money." - JADF

 3 / 5 Chaparral Golf course played: 2014-11-17

"Some fairways too narrow. For first timers blind corners you need to buy the little book so you know where you are going! One par 3 my husband almost got hit by a drive on the next hole coming back. He was on the slope pitching up to the green and no protection of trees from other fairway!! Green were awful condition could see shoe marks!!! Tees were bad too! All in all we will not return." - The golfer
