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.

We booked our tee time and got stuck behind a golf tournament that lasted 5 hours. The staff was professional and warned us two days prior about the tournament and said we could either get a refund and play again later or play and get a comp round in the future. We chose to play and the pace of play was not a surprise. They kindly awarded us two complimentary rounds. This is one of my favorite courses to play because of the staff and course layout.

This would be a great place to take a starting player because there are very few players. They would not hold anyone up. The course is in great condition even with the grass changing.

Another great outing at Coldwater. Course was in good condition, grass under your ball if in the fairway and certainly around the greens. Greens in good condition. The people at the pro shop, concessions, everywhere, were friendly. Great value.

This is a fun course to play. There are quite a few holes where the green is hidden from the fairway, The rolling hills and multi-tiered greens make this a challenging course. T

Neat course where we found the fairways and tee boxes in great shape. Greens have a few different grasses popping in. Still puts ok. Desert golf with a lot of wildlife around. Nice quality for the price.

Since I moved here over five years ago I have played a number of courses in the west valley. I enjoy Coldwater GC but have one real concern. Why aren’t the golfers taking care of the course? Sand is provided to fix the numerous divots left daily, it takes no time to fill the divot and move on. My group fixed at least 8 ball marks on every green and didn’t even touch what needed to be fixed. Come on people, if you love the game respect the course and always leave it better than you found it!

Put this one on your list. Nice course, well maintained, helpful staff. Only problem we had was the cart. Kept kicking out of forward, so could use a little maintenance. I'll be back.
