Cold Water Canyon Golf Course at Chula Vista Resort
Cold Water Canyon Golf Course in the Wisconsin Dells has a layout that dates back to the 1920s, making it one of the oldest golf courses in the state. Originally a nine-hole course, it was expanded to a full 18 holes but the original layout was carefully preserved as the front nine. The back nine offers a completely different round with a Scottish-links design, however it manages to blend seamlessly with the classic layout of the first nine. Water hazards come into play on a few holes and there are strategically placed bunkers to contend with as well. The second half of Cold Water Canyon Golf Course is more challenging than the front but both are equally scenic. The golf course and the adjoining Chula Vista Resort are tucked away amidst thick forests of mature trees.

Great conditions, exceeded expectations
Played "Coldwater Canyon" this week for the first time in about 10 years. I was pleasantly surprised with the course conditions--tees, fairways and greens were all in excellent shape. They have obviously continued to invest in the course and work hard to maintain it.
The original 9 holes was built in the 1920's and is short and tight with smaller greens. You'll need to choose your clubs carefully and keep the ball in play to score well. The back nine is a high quality links style course, comparable to the best courses in the Dells area only much more affordable.
The "tavern" at the clubhouse offers excellent food and they seem capable of accommodating any size outing. They also offer many affordable stay and play options which include the benefits of the water park and restaurant facilities on site.
If you are able to visit Wisconsin Dells, this course is well worth a try!
Cart attendant wasn't seen until the 9th hole. The front 9 is nothing special, but the back nine is challenging and fun. Friendly staff once they started coming around.
Short but Extremely Challenging
This is the tale of two sides, very different sides. The front was created in something like 1927 and is tree lined and a lot of "position golf". Greens are great, traps in "okay" shape on the front. The back becomes more of a links style course and is 300 yards longer from the tips. The yardage won't scare you, 6100 from the tips, but the length is strategically placed and you will be challenged all day. Back side traps are excellent though I suppose if you stayed out of them it wouldn't matter! LOL Staff is excellent and Chula Vista is one of the best resorts in the Dells
Cold Water Canyon
Great course. Greens were a little slow but in great condition. Will play again.
Nice golf course.
I've played 22 different golf courses in Wisconsin at the $30 - $50 range. CWC is as nice as any of them. I booked a hot deal so I didn't have to pay full price. I would not pay that much to golf there. For a beginner like me, a well mowed, wider style golf course would be ideal. This one has some narrow spots. Lost some balls. I'll golf there again.
Wisconson November golf
Staff was very, very friendly; greens were well kept. Fairways were cut short and rough was okay.
Nice carts, included in the price--weather was in 70's (yes in November). A couple of sweet dog legs, and short par threes.
No service carts were there--but I only saw four other groups of gofers.
Once a year
I play the course once a year. Nice course. Price is right through Golfnow.
beautiful day, course was in real good condition, loved the greens, would highly recommend
Challenging Course but Not Long
Okay, "not long", but it is sneaky long because of the dog legs, rough and tough greens. The two nines are very different. First nine is more carved through trees, tight'ish, and tiny greens. Ball placement is critical both off the tee to give you the proper angles into the green and because the greens are so small on the front you have to be accurate.
The back side then is a total change. Much more wide open and more true links style. Plenty of room off the tee but if you waiver from the fairway be ready for those large fescue hills that will swallow up your ball. Large greens and undulating. Fun course though and greens were in great shape.
Good course and is playable for the average golfer
Great value when using golf now and the hot deals The course has always been in good condition and is enjoyable to play.
great value for the money
played the canyon the day after 4.5" of rain and it was in great shape! very tight front nine and more of a links style on the back nine. i will play this course again when I get back to the dells area!
Great value. Challenging
Great course. Steady pace of play. Great mix of traditional tree lined fairways on front nine followed by a links style back nine. Would definitely play again. Golf now deal, played midday . Played for $12!!!!
Coldwater canyon at Chula Vista
Excellent course and staff and facilities were also top notch.
A good mixture of shot making
Front nine..tighter fairways then back nine. Fairways don't butt up against each other. .I like that. Again just off season so not many on the course.
Staff was very friendly and accommodating. Course was pretty easy and should have played faster. Condition of the front 9 was adequate and the back 9 was very nice and well taken care of . I would possibly play again earlier in the season.
Nice course unacceptable service
Very nice course, but pace of play was very slow as it took 5hr for 18 holes and we never stopped at the turn. The part that was very concerning is we only seen the beverage cart 1 time the whole round which was at hole number 5. We even called when we got to hole 13 and they said the beverage carts were still out and that they would be sure to send one out right away which never happened!!!!
