Not a good first impression
Got to the course early. Got a soda at the desk and went to my cart. Was told that the others I was paired with were already gone. Other group of 2 on the tee, so we were told to play together. Jerks did not want to have me in their group. Was told to "play through them" and check up. Well that didn't work, lost my first two shots, went back and started over. "No singles" before 1:00 on weekends. Course was not busy. Trees were eating my poor shots, so I lost a ton of balls. Several greens were covered in fungus or had bad bald spots on them.
Needless to say, I probably will not be back. Better Muni courses in both Montgomery, B'ham, and surrounding areas.
Course has firmed up better with some recent drier weather. And, even in windy conditions the course plays noticeably shorter firmed up. Greens have been recently aerated so a few a little bumpy. Upcoming rain should help with that.
Needing some love.
Cottonwood is a very good layout, but seems to have fallen on tough times. It may be that things will be better as spring comes. I hope that is the case because it could be a very good option.
Very nice layout
Greens were in good shape. When wet the clay sticks to ball and clubs too much. I would not know how to correct this other than making sure there is plenty of soapy water in ball washers. When course is dry it is a great course to play.
Older course with high aspirations. Well maintained. Lot of wetness from recent rains. Greens were thin and a few needed repair
