A Very good course

We played the Champions course after a few days of rain. The course is kind of wet but it's well-kept with only 4 cart-path holes. The course is in very good shape with a new clubhouse, new tee boxes, and white sand bunkers. The green conditions are very good except that it's kind of slow for me. The layouts are interesting with many strategic doglegs. The pace of playing is SLOW. Anyway, this is a very good course to play after its recent renovations.

Prepare for 5-6 hour round

I’ve been playing colony west for over 10 years and every time I play there, no matter the time of day, year, or day of the week I have yet to play a round under 5 hours due to clueless players and no rangers helping with the pace of play. This will be the last time I ever step foot on that golf course. It’s a free for all out there and nothing has changed.

Better after renovations

Update of my review after playing a round on temp tees during renovations:

Tees, greens, and bunkers were all in good shape. Bunkers were top-dressed with white powdery sand, but the sand underneath is still pretty firm. The sodded areas still need to grow in some.

Next thing that needs attention is the fairways. Very little grass in high-traffic areas. 25% of my shots were off dirt and sprouts. Nobody sands divots, which is crazy for how slow some of the people here are. My partner and I got paired with Slow N Slower. First 9 took 3 hours. We ditched them on the back 9 and finished in an hour.

Course is still a great value. Should hopefully continue to improve as high season approaches until it's swarmed with Canadiens.

Greens

For all the money they just spent to fix the tee boxes and greens.. I think the grounds crew could've did a better job the sod around the sand bunkers aren't that level and the greens aren't that great condition for just getting re-done

Greens are nice

Definitely one of my favorite courses in the area. Always a challenge to play the champ course at colony West. The greens make it all worth it. There may be some rough areas here and there, but overall it's a great place to play.

Before taking your money, they should tell you the condition of the course. They were doing work on the course, which slowed pace of play.
