Colony West

Played championship course. Clubhouse is in temporary site as new one is being constructed. Pace of play on back nine especially was a little slow. The course is a really good set up and requires you to make shots. Greens have slope and are difficult to putt. All in all it is a nice course.

big improvement

Really happy to see what's happening here. Instead of some golf courses giving up on maintenance, Colony West re-did tee boxes and greens. The greens were especially strong and fair. Now let's nail down the fairways next! I am also looking forward to the new clubhouse. There used to be a solid sports bar at Colony West in the old days, I hope they bring something like that back.

Average course

The layout is great, but the conditions were marginal. It looks like they are trying to improve things, but right now it is average at best. Greens were okay but shaggy. Very little rough. Fairways were okay. We were in the area for a week and played 6 different courses. This wouldn’t be on our replay list right now.

More difficult than the length

It’s a short course. 5800 from the whites. Considered playing the blues at 6400 yds but then looked at slope ratings which are very high. Glad we went with white. Greens and bunkers in good shape. Very strategic course makes you think on most tee boxes. Will definitely play again if I get another chance. Clubhouse is a trailer - may be temporary as another building in construction that could be a clubhouse. Round finished in a little over 4 hours on a saturday. Fantastic pace for a public course on a Saturday.

Good bones

Solid architecture and plenty of cypress trees framing the fairways. Greens are in great shape, could be cut closer, around a 9.
For the price during season, great deal.

Decent course for 40$

This course is challenging and a good layout. The 18th green is under construction, had to play to a flag in the fairway. The check in was not ran smoothly/ lack of personnel. Would be a good course for 30-40$ max.
