Just a little tlc

Let me be clear, the staff…AWESOME!!! The course layout beautiful! The fairways are good. Now the greens…SOOOO BAD!!! That and the 4 1/2 hour plus pace of play is keeping this from being a diamond. Just a little tlc and getting snowbirds to pick up and go is all this course needs. Staff…seriously awesome!

Slow Round

We hadn’t played this course for about three years. While there have been some improvements (new sand in most of the bunkers), and a few of the greens in better shape, that didn’t make up for the exceptionally slow pace of the round. We literally waited on every hole during the almost 5 hr round, and we didn’t see even one marshall during that time to get things moving! We’ve been down here in AZ for three months and this was easily the most disappointing round. I was told there is new management now, so time to take care of the little things guys! Won’t be back anytime soon…

Erosion Fatigue

The course was the least inexpensive on GolfNow. With the prices skyrocketing in Arizona for the winter, a local is hard pressed to find value outside of TopGolf which is still a rip off. However, the value proposition here at Coldwater is one of the best in town. What pushed me to give it 4.5 stars is the staff and the after round BBQ Western Cheeseburger. The course is great in the winter and has some undulating greens that provide challenges for even pros. But the dirt erosion has found it’s way onto the cart paths and needs maintenance in a bad way. If the rain hits, the ditches and waste areas become difficult to traverse. There is a herd of loons on the 8th green that are tearing up the fringe and then number 9 is paradise. The back nine is much more accessible accept for hole 2 the first par 5, it has let’s just say, character. Finishing at 18 past the wasteland to the left makes the green reachable with a roller coaster put that will leave you three putt stumped. But go inside and get that burger and the shoestring fries. Tell the staff the two Hawaiians sent you.

The practice facility is ok, the carts remain dirty after they get washed, not sure if it’s dirty water or non-potable water they are reclaiming, but don’t eat food off the carts just in case. There was a ton of water on the mats at the range so don’t wear white shirts or pants.

Other than that, the course is much better than say, Kokopelli or Los Colinas, and you will get your money’s worth in the winter time! Watch for your farmers bottom our, probably caused from too much erosion and maintenance fatigue.

Nice course layout, but the greens were splendid, with swings to the right or left, even throughout putt. (best I've seen in 6 mth's) Facility and practice area, along with staff make this enjoyable course to play.

Frequent players recognition

Lots of courses to choose from in this market. Medium to high cost courses should consider a frequent players reward program with free play or steeply discounted rounds as an incentive to return. I don’t need another hat or sleeve of golf balls.
