This is the 3rd time playing this course. The course itself has been in excellent shape all 3 times. I would play this course a lot more often if I lived closer (N. Phoenix). The whole staff is friendly and helpful. The practice areas (driving range, chipping green, and putting greens) are nice, however the putting greens do not represent the actual greens out on the course. You want to score your best on the front 9, because the back 9 is a bit more challenging. The only negative I can say about the course was the very last time I played, they had a tournament earlier in the day, and we teed off on time, however we where backed up by the 2nd tee. It was a 5.5hr round for 18. The previous 2 times where good at approximately 4hr rounds.

This Course is a good deal right now for a Twilight Fee not a full Green Fee. Tee to green is in pretty decent shape. The back nine greens were punched but only slightly and were actually faster and more receptive than the front nine greens. This course has always been decent but the desert rough and cart transitions have always been an eyesore. If lazy people would stop driving carts right up to the green. That would help greatly.

Very friendly in all areas of golf course. Really enjoyed our day, paired with nice people. Only one small glitch, our cart died on the fifth hole, so we had to wait for new one, lucky one of the guys had pro shop number on his phone and called right away, otherwise we would have really held up play.

Played course for first time as a kick off to the season. Perfect course to work the rust off. Used every club and everything is right out there, no blind shots . A little late in starting but played in under 4 hours (11 AM tee time). Staff friendly and organized. Practice facilities not great but not an indication of course condition or green speed. The course won't beat you up, so enjoy. We will return.

Normally we pay $50 to golf at Coldwater which includes range balls and a cart which is a very reasonable price. We received an email with a "Bounce Back" Special which was an awesome deal! It offered golf for $60 which included lunch. Then you got a another round of golf for $40 which also included lunch. The golf course is in good condition,, there is a nice cart person who is always out and about which is not present at a lot of courses. The food is excellent, and the staff cannot do enough for you. We have recommended to others, have golfed multiple times this year and looking forward to returning next year.

Great course, but tee boxes had grass so tall that you could lose your dog in it unless he started barking. Same was true for grass areas just off of several greens. Tried to book a tee time twice for a large number of golfers and they never returned my calls. The bar shuts down at 6 sharp. If you have a late tee time, no beer or food when you are done. Also, not one beverage cart all afternoon. With proper management , this could have been an exceptional golf experience.

To start, no one greeted us as we arrived. No bag drop that we could see. Had to carry bags to the carts. Nobody handy to help. Check in was fine and friendly. The course was in good shape if you stayed on the over-seeded part, but after that not so good. Better time last year when we played.

One thing I love about this place is that the customer service you receive is much better than you see at some of the high dollar courses around town.

The course was in great condition. The greens were rolling well and my breakfast sandwich was tasty.
