I remember about 8 years ago, after playing a 6 and a 5 1/2 hour round within 10 days at CV Mun., I swore I would never return as it seemed they were always overbooked.

Fast forward to 2017 and boy have things changed. In Feb. I moved to within 2 miles of this course and because of the convenience, decided to give them a chance again.

Night and Day difference!

The course is in excellent shape for the value that it is and the greens are in great shape. Staff is awesome top to bottom from what I have been exposed to and have had several A+ rounds since moving into the neighborhood. Keep up the good work CVMGC

The golf course is in good shape and the greens in excellent shape. However, hole number 3 has been shortened to par 3 due to construction work on the adjacent street and pedestrian trail.

Muni course that's improving over time. Some holes have experienced major damage over the years but outside of those few holes the course is playable and for the most part pretty fun. Would love to see revamped tee boxes sooner rather than later. A pose to have flatter lies on the fairways than what is presently there on the tee boxes is backward. Greens are awesome and the bunkers are game. People there are super nice too.

Pace of play was very slow, but seemed to open up a bit on the back 9. Golf course staff was very friendly and worked hard. Course ambassadors moved singles around and built up 4soms. Did a great job.

If we could have speeded the round up it would have been deserving a higher rating.

The creek running through the middle of most of the course makes it very challenging so it's imperative that you do not slice the ball. Straight shots and baby draws are the ideal on most of the holes. I thought the greens were very consistent.

Challenging layout for all levels of play, especially from the back tees. Greens are in great shape and bunkers appear to have been filled with new sand following all the rain we've had recently. I played a little after 12pm and finished in 4 hours and 30 minutes which is not bad for a public course. Great staff and drink cart will be around often enough.

It would have been nice for someone to mention the fairways were airated before we tee'd off, but the bunkers really need some TLC! Added sand would be nice at the least. Otherwise the course is on the mend from all the rain we had in January and February.

This course is challenging and has great greens considering it's a public course. People complain about the fairways not being in great shape, but they're good enough. You can't expect country club conditions at municipal prices. Friendly staff with a challenging course with good variety of holes. Played in a foursome on a Saturday and finished in 4 hours.

The course is fairly good shape considering the storm that caused flooding & the loss of over 30 trees. Some of the fairways need some maintenance but the putting greens are in good shape. Some clean up of the creeks will help to get rid of the standing water & some of the insects.

Greens were really nice as most of the previous reviews stated but fairways were non-existent. "Need more maintenance on fairways" as some reviewed is a completely understatement, at the least for the day we played. Except from that, it is a nice muni, with friendly staff and superb pace of play.
