Avoid This Course
This course is in serious decline. The tee boxes were sparse. Fairways were barely fairways and the greens were half dirt half crappy grass. Very little water on the course to refill with. Overall it was a disappointment to play and I will never return.

Last minute vacation game
Front nine needs development, second 9 makes up for it. Greens are rough but no rain. Very quiet and staff super friendly. Great Golfnow hot deal value!! Will do again
Weekend last minute
Great course for the money, Golfnow hotdeal made i it a great deal. Yes the front 9 are totally different from back and is fair to average but the back nine makes up for it! Greens are dry and patchy but it’s been dry. Will definitely return again. Staff was very friendly!
Could be great, but its not
The layout of this course is pretty fun, as the front nine and back nine play as almost two completely different courses with their own unique challenges. For a June day, the weather was perfect, it wasn't overly crowded, and pace of play was good. With all of that said, the Greens are in horrendous condition. Every single green has large dead patches that are nothing but hard dirt with sand on top. They've been forced to place the pins on the small patches of the greens that are alive, so even if you hit a great second shot into the green, you may not be rewarded at all if you don't manage to put it on the living portions of the green. If this course was $20 it'd be worth it, but at $40, it just isn't in good enough shape currently.
Hi. Thank you for reviewing the course. Let us first start by apologizing for the poor experience you had during your visit. Your feedback about the course is important to us. We are working to get the greens up to par. The current condition is by no means the standard we strive to achieve. We are glad to see you rated the rest of your visit to be great during your game. We will continue to work towards an excellent experience by using your comment for guidance. Thank you for playing ColoVista Golf Club. We hope to see you again soon.
Played here before, course provides some challenges, but overall great fun, and value. I definitely will be back. Pace of play is excellent.
Colovista - a friend of the amateur golfer
Colovista Golf Course, a great friend to the amateur golfer. A friendly course design gives you 9 holes on the front to get warmed up & golf focused. You need that 9 because the back 9 is the real challenging test; wooded, framed with trees, elevation changes and challenging greens. Twenty golfers got together for a "guys golf weekend" and totally enjoyed the experience.
If for no other reason; come play the golf course to experience this hole. Take your time and take in the grand view. It is unique.
It is worth the price of the golf to experience and play #15, a par-3 that sits on the banks of the Colorado River, with tee-boxes towering 200 feet above the green. We nicknamed it "The Ledge" and it is quite an experience. Visually and physically it is unique and enjoyable.Beautiful.
Tip: Execute your golf shot by hitting to the front of the green and letting the terrain of the green roll you to the honey-hole. Do the math, the elevation of the tees is about 200 feet above the green, check your math then hit your shot. Being off the back of the green is slightly more difficult than being short of the green for your second shot.
★ Hole #1: Cozy elevated tee-box set in a stone corner. An unexpected perch to tee your golf ball and let it fly.
★ Breath-taking view of the Colorado River and the countryside from the tee-box of the par-3 # 15. You won't find this anywhere else in Texas. See summary above.
★ Harder than nails #16 with a 90 degree dog-leg right, then plays uphill to the green. Elevation change that keeps the golf gods laughing at us poor amateurs.
★ #17 should be named Long Knocker; the most gettable par-5 on the course. Yes you can get there in 2, now make the putt.
★ Stay & Play (the Colovista Cottages) The group of 20 loved the convenience of being located alongside of the 2nd fairway. Having adult beverages after dark, sitting on the back porches, was highlighted by the uniquely lit proshop sitting on the rock outcropping above the cottages. Overall the cottages were very clean, well maintained and comfortable. Ask the staff about the community room to have access to a microwave and dining tables. We would like to see a BBQ pit or grill at the cottages.
★ Driving Range functional and very convenient to the cottages. Take time to use the nearby practice putting green - reading and putting the greens is very difficult.
★ Fun and professional staff.
★ Reasonably priced, good value.
Take your range-finder or GPS device, you will need it for determining distances.
Take breakfast items & cooler if you are staying in the cottages.
Hold-on, the cart paths need some work.
The Needville Guys totally enjoyed the weekend and the golf amenities,
We will be back
Nice greens, horrible fairways and cart paths
First time playing this course. The best I can say is that the greens were in very nice shape, but most of the fairways were in barren and horrible condition. The cart paths were non-existent and torn up on most of the holes. Signage is pretty poor as well (hole 5 especially) Perhaps it's a condition of playing in February, but this course needs a lot of work to justify the prices they're asking.
Hello, and thank you for taking the time to review your recent experience with us at ColoVista Country Club. We are sorry to see that the fairways may not have been in the best shape when you played. Your feedback regarding signage is also greatly appreciated and we will use it to make the necessary improvements to the course. Our golfers' overall experience is extremely valuable to us and we hope that you will give us another chance to show you how we've improved. Thank you for your choosing our course, we look forward to seeing you again soon.
Good Course That CAN be Great Again
I really like Colovista and always have.
Back in it’s infancy under Mr Appel’s ownership it was in a league of its own.
Since the course reopened, you can really sense that there is pride in this track.
Saw lots of folks out working on the grounds today and the greens were really awesome and fast. Almost too fast for the degree of undulation in them.
The carts were very hesitant to engage and an almost threes second delay before they would take off. Seemed like a governor issue as this was the case on three different carts we tried. Pretty minor, but annoying.
With all of that said, this course is a GREAT value for the money and has lots of character. This Spring, depending on the amount of work that gets done it has the potential to be great again.
Some say cart paths are needed throughout the course, but I tend to disagree on that point.
I plan on trying to play this course at least once a month all the way through Fall 2019 to see how it progresses. I am really liking what I am seeing transpire our at Colovista. Keep up the great work!
First, I’ll say that I am such a huge fan of this track, but curse this dry summer. Greens are in rough shape, and fairways are a tad rough as well. It’s tough to see myself paying full price for the conditions out there, but if you can catch a hot deal and just need to go play, give it a whirl.
Not worth the price!
For the price the course could be alot better. Looks like someone made a course in the back yard. Greens were okay loved the country scene. The lay out is great, but fairways, greens and cart path need improvemet.
Hello Jacob, Thank you for reviewing the course. Let us first start by apologizing for the condition of the cart path. Your feedback about the course is important to us. We are going to escalate your feedback to our team so we can make improvements before your next game. We will continue to work towards an excellent experience by using your comment for guidance. Thank you for playing ColoVista Golf Club, we hope to see you again soon.
A rough layout.
Cart paths are mostly dirt with big potholes. Some potholes had chunks of cinder blocks thrown in them. One green had two big gopher holes and a live gopher on it. Tons of fire ants. Lots of bare spots on farewaysand greens. Avoid.
Thanks for the kind words. We are trying to recover from winter kill on a few greens. Our main irrigation pump motor failed the week before Memorial Day and we were unable to water the course from May 24th through June 4th. The pump motor has been replaced and we have been watering and fertilizing like crazy to catch up. Golf courses are like a farm... There's always something! Thanks for the support!
Not my first time to play here and I'm planning a stay and play soon. The course wasn't the best that i have seen it but it coming around. Bobby is discounting the green fees due to the conditions. Had a blast and I will come back
This course was a blast to play!
Great layout , challenging holes, beautiful scenery and all around blast to play! The negatives were few but big!! The greens were impossible to read/putt on. Sand, dirt, and grass clumps would take a 4 foot putt and turn it into an excursion into the twilight zone That being said the overall experience was a blast ! The pace of play was awesome ! I will return soon and with more friends!
Thanks for the journey Bobby!
Colovista Day Trip
Played Colovista over the past weekend 07/09-10 and enjoyed the course layout, the staff was very friendly, and so were the other players on the course. In fact we played through 3 groups and finished the round in about 3.25 hours. We were however a bit disappointed in the conditions of the greens with many having large dead spots. Overall enjoyed the round and for the $20K green fee would play again.
My friends and I had a wonderful time there. The staff was friendly and helpful. We played 36 holes. We all agreed it was a must to replay the 15th hole. Wow what a view. Course was laid out perfectly. Super deal, Give them a call. Thanks guys. Ditto
