Located in the West Valley, the championship-length course at the Coldwater Golf Club boasts several different challenges for an interesting round of golf. There are elevated tees as well as several dry washes. There are two lakes providing water hazards on the golf course as well. There are also dramatic elevation changes caused by the mountainous terrain. Aside from the challenging game, the course also offers beautiful mountain vistas. The course has not only one signature course but two. The first is the modest eighth hole. Although it is short at 100 yards, it features an elevated tee and a triple-tiered green. Coldwater Golf Club also finishes with a signature hole. The beginning tee shot plays to an open fairway over water with a dry wash to the left, while the approach shot is closed-in by another wash to the left and a lake to the right.

Worth playing

Coldwater is in good shape from tee to green. As can be expected this time of year, there are a few thin spots in some fairways, but not too bad. I like the course layout and it’s both a challenge and fair.

Nice course

This was a really fun course to play, hole positions were in challenging places. The fairways and greens were in amazing shape for it being this time of year. The staff was extremely nice and they were following all Covid-19 rules. Would recommend

Good Round

We had a good round, 4.5 hours. No waiting.
We like the layout of the Course. The Bunkers need some work. The Greens were hard to read, but in good shape. Great Value!

Worth the drive for me...

I drove from NE Phoenix but the drive was worth it. The greens, fairways, tee and in most cases the sand traps were all in very playable condition. The Hot Deal price I paid was a great bonus too boot. I was glad to have driven the extra miles, it definitely was worth it...

No water

Although there was a beverage cart it’s fricken summer & no water available on the course! so if we don’t get the virus we’ll be dehydrated! Makes no sense! Then it was slow play with no ranger, so even more irritating! Fairways had several brown dry spots! Unfortunately not a fun day!

pace of play

we started as a three-some but because of the pace of play our third had to forego the back nine.

The group in front of us, a foursome, were very slow even going from shot to shot which were many on each hole.
We then caught the group that was in front of this group and they were slow as well including in some cases practising putting.

We like playing Coldwater but wish slow players would allow you to play thru.

Summer is here

The. course was in fair to good shape. The fairways are fine if a bit dr6 and the greens are medium fast and could use some water. It was 108 today so they need to be careful. The rough was not kept up and the weeds etc were quite thick. Need to mow those areas and clean up the broken branches etc. The place is a fair setup and enjoyable to play although a bit slow not horribl, a four and a half hour round. Get out early and enjoy.

First time playing coldwater

Fairways are nice and wide, greens were in great shape as the ball didn’t bounce all over the place when putting. I will definitely play here again. Great price too.

No Social Distancing

What Pandemic???? Everyone on the facility be it staff or customers acted like it was last Summer. No attempt to maintain social distance or even remind people. Only concession was the ball washers and water coolers on course were removed. Won't return as I have played other courses recently that took a better way forward with this issue.
