Awful Experience

For starters, all of the water coolers were empty and they do not refill them on Sundays, which was ridiculous with today being 93 degrees outside. The course was in rough condition all around. Greens and tee boxes were in good shape, but otherwise it was not a good surface to play on and my group was very disappointed. Pace was fairly slow, we had to wait a few minutes before teeing off on just about every hole.

Forgotten Gem

I pleasantly surprised by the course. So many golfers overlook this venue. I played the Olde Course and had a great time. The course was in good condition and the pace of play was average for any course on a summer Saturday. Some of the cart paths need attention but I find that everywhere

Terribly managed course ruins great day for golf

Tried to play this course yesterday but they overbooked every tee time so the course backed up for HOURS. 11:15 tee time and we didn't start our round until 11:52. 3.5 hours later and we were only on hole 10 and had to leave course early. Most holes to 15-20 minutes to play since groups in front were slow. Rangers didn't care about pace of play at all. The only time we saw a ranger was when he came out to complain to all groups he could find about how cart paths and driving on the course should work since some of the groups ahead of us were "being reckless"... Can definitely say we will not be back. Won't miss the course much either as there are many better courses in surrounding towns for similar price. Maybe they should stop the Olde-only cart policy and alleviate some of the congestion to the other course you have. Had carts been allowed on Karakung yesterday there would have been far less issues concerning the pace of play.

Horribly kept and managed

They obviously booked a bunch of groups for the same tee times and the whole course was backed up. If that wasn’t bad enough the course is also horribly maintained. Cart paths are chopped up, greens are terribly kept, and all sand traps looked like small lakes. Complete and utter waste of my time and money. The condition of the course was disgraceful. I would never recommend this course to anyone.

hurry over

The course is in excellent shape! Great time of year to play here. If you are thinking about playing here I recommend do it soon before the heat and a lot of rounds take its toll on the place. Great bang for your buck. Hopefully will return soon.

I keeps it real!!!!!

Ok, Bachelor Party, Course we grew up on and Groom’s Dad maneuvering between the 3 foursomes. Giving tips, comments and just being Big D. Awesome time no matter what happened. The course was in alright conditions. Some greens a little worse than others. Bunkers were cement and weedy, luckily didn’t spend a lot of time in them. I love this course and will play it anytime. It just always disappoints me because it could be so much more if it had the staff. Pin placement is always in question at Cobbs, but mostly fair this day. Fairways were clean and in decent shape. The new tee box on 17 is a nice view. I’ll play it again this season.

The Olde Course at Cobbs Creek

Had a foursome when we started. Starter made sure a twosome was in front of us, smart. The cart we had had a punctured tire that we saw before heading to the 3rd hole; swapped carts after the 2nd hole. The cart paths need work as do some drainage areas on the course. Many trees still down from the storms from the previous couple of months. At least the greens were better than average for size and complexity. After the round, decided to get some food and drink from the “club house”. Don’t waste your money. The dog was barely cooked and the selection of drink was limited. For the price, it’s good but still an average course. If you live within 25 minutes, it’s not a bad course choice.

Thank you for playing Cobbs Creek! We're sorry that your experience wasn't exceptional, which is what we strive for. This past weekend was extremely busy and we simply weren't prepared for all of the rounds this early in the season. Give us a try again in a few weeks, you won't be disappointed!

Cobbs Creek the Olde Course

Tee boxes and greens were in great shape for a public course. In fact they were in the best shape that I’ve played on, for a public course, for 90% of the rounds I’ve played this year. Pace of play was pretty good as well. Could have had a better selection of food at the concession stand/Pro shop. All in all a good day.
