Cold Water Canyon Golf Course at Chula Vista Resort
Cold Water Canyon Golf Course in the Wisconsin Dells has a layout that dates back to the 1920s, making it one of the oldest golf courses in the state. Originally a nine-hole course, it was expanded to a full 18 holes but the original layout was carefully preserved as the front nine. The back nine offers a completely different round with a Scottish-links design, however it manages to blend seamlessly with the classic layout of the first nine. Water hazards come into play on a few holes and there are strategically placed bunkers to contend with as well. The second half of Cold Water Canyon Golf Course is more challenging than the front but both are equally scenic. The golf course and the adjoining Chula Vista Resort are tucked away amidst thick forests of mature trees.

Early Season no crowds
Special thank you to four guys on the first tee, as they let let my wife and I play ahead. Course is now in great shape and with the jump start we finished in three hours. Tourist season is soon upon us and speed golf will be behind us.
Early season un-repaired ball marks
I’ve played this course over a hundred times in the last 50 some years. Value with GolfNow in April is unbelievable. This is a resort course for out of state players. In season price is too high for regulars. Today some yahoo left un-repaired divots on many greens. I follow the fix yours and a couple of others philosophy. Today, mine were barely noticeable. At the turn, I mentioned this to the attendant. After the round I showed a photo from the back nine that looked like the person stepped on the ball. Who does this, especially in early season?
Very friendly staffs and fairways and greens were well maintained, had good round..
Terrible front, Great back!
Front 9 was boring and not well maintained.
The back 9 was another course totally.
Shame the pace of place was horrendous.
Also guys in the shop should learn to up sell a bit.
Crazy fast greens + tight layout = High Score
This course looks easy on the scorecard. Relatively short and straight forward. But it is very tight off the tee, and the lightning fast greens led to my highest score of the season. Fun but frurstrating.
Tight track - Birdie Opportunities
Tight layout through the woods, short holes invite birdies.
Outstanding staff, great course
Very inviting course, shorter over all distance but elevation and layout provide nice challenge as well as scoring opportunities. Will certainly be playing here again next time I am in town.
Fast greens fun course
There was a few blind shots that could put golfers ahead of you in trouble. Otherwise nice course. Not the longest course but fun. Enjoyed my round.
Well maintained. As others stated, from and back nines are different, especially the tiny greens on the front. It takes some adjusting. Overall, very nice, fair course in good condition.
Shot makers course, excellent, fast greens. Didn’t hit driver but twice. Carts were first class with good GPS. Played black tees just a shade under 6100, but still challenging. Sand is good consistency and course conditions were very good.
