Vastly Improved

The course is in very good condition - best in months if not years. The new clubhouse and facilities are excellent. Definitely a must play now as I'm sure that come fall/winter it will be sold out most days.

First time since redo

Give this course some more time - excellent layout but tee boxes need attention and fairways can be less than average. New clubhouse and future facilities will make this an attractive place to play in the future once the grass comes back in all the right places.

Greens were punched with no notification from course or Golfnow.

Putting was impossible, tee boxes were poor. Interesting layout but it has been in much better condition...why weren’t we alerted about the greens?

May Conditions 2021

Greens are in good shape but thick and slow.
Tee boxes are in bad shape on most holes.
Cart paths are in need of repair.
Fairways are in decent shape.

Not the best conditions but value for the price.

Lackluster and uninspiring design, conditions are ok

This course has a pretty unfun and boring layout. Does not present options other than “don’t hit it there.” And hit it exactly here. Tightish fairways, trees, out of bounds, water, you name it! Not exactly a good fit for a public course that gets a bunch of 15 handicaps coming through. The rough was not in a good shape, lots of weeds and not maintained. Tee boxes on some holes were more sand than grass. Greens were in decent shape but inconsistent on pace and mostly very slow. Fairways were in good shape.

No driving range which is fine, but noticeably absent for a course that dubs itself a “championship course.” Overall verrrry uninspiring and wholly forgettable. Must be better options out there.

Colony West Champ Course - Spring 2021

The course and property has undergone significant improvement over the past 2 years although much work remains. The cart paths are in real bad shape and need to be redone. Some of the fairways are dirt and in some run down areas, Residents from the area walk aimlessly on the fairways in certain areas which is a major concern. On this past round there were two adolescents walking a dog on the course shooting what appeared to be a BB gun into the water at fish. I hope the city continues to work on the areas of concern because the course can be a decent option at a reasonable price for the area. There are other options in the area that I would prefer.
