Cottonwood Golf Course is still a relatively young course with the first nine holes being completed in 1995 and then being joined by the second nine in 1998, but it has quickly built a loyal following thanks to the excellent green conditions and the extremely affordable rates. Several lakes and streams come into play throughout the golf course and sparsely, but strategically placed bunkers add another element of challenge. The course opens with a tricky par 4. The slight dogleg requires a drive to the middle left of the fairway in order to avoid the water hazards that flank the right side. Its green is large and forgiving but there is sand both in front and behind. Golfers can play either a full round of just nine holes from a variety of different tee boxes, making Cottonwood Golf Course accessible to players of all skill levels.

I liked the course and is easy on the wallet. The layout is OK but quite restricted by the size and shape of the property. The greens are usually pretty good. As an added bonus, you can play year round.

We have had very wet conditions as of late and I found that the course was not as wet as I expected. I have been there before; other years and it was a lot wetter so I think that there has been some improvements. The course was in good shape in spite of the time of year. The cart path had pot holes that need to be fill in.<br/> It was a damp drizzly day but a very good day for golf for me. I purchase the good deal golf now had for 18 holes but the tee off time only had 2 hours of daylight. I find the staff really appreciate their customers. I will go again

nous sommes en voyage de retraite et lors de notre séjour pres de nanaimo sur l'ile de vancouver, nous avons réservé le golf avec golfnow.com et le prix était excellent a 50 pour cent de rabais. le terrain était relativement bien ,mais ne vaut pas le prix réel de 50 dollars la ronde. les verts étaient percé et sablonner pour l'aération ce qui est normal a ce temps de l'année. en général un terrain correct pour 24 dollars mais pas 50. la boutique du pro est bien mais un peu petite .la salle a manger est jolie mais nous n'avons pas manger a cet endroit. le personnel est gentil et les employés sur le terrain étaient tres aimables. merci

Beautiful course with nice forest trails, airplanes taking off, challenging but reasonable. Got a great deal on golf now and we will definitely return when we see another deal. Food order was advertised on 8th hole for pickup after 9 but twice called and got restaurant voice mail. Resorted to quick pickup window for food but they only had one smokie and very limited beverage selection.

The course conditions were good - especially for this late in the season. There were a few novice golfers on the course that slowed pace of play and the course attendant wasn't very helpful in moving them along so we skipped a hole to bypass them. Overall a great value for the money and we'll be back.

I've played this course 2 times now and have started to enjoy what it is about and how I (a golfer of sporadic decent play) can get the most out of it. Nicely contoured greens, ample but not club sucking rough and a few holes you will love to hate... 'tis a good thing.<br/> Friendly staff, nice amenities and a pretty and peaceful place at sunset. Rewarding golf, good price...what can i say, it grows on ya..

This is a good, medium length golf course. Even though it is a bit on the shorter side, it will test even a really good golfer, particularly on some of the tighter holes. It is fun for a medium length hitter as well, but really short hitters might be frustrated on the par 5s and a couple of the longer par 4s where the forward tees just aren't forward enough. The conditions are generally good, but they aren't "pristine" like you would get at a higher end golf course (you get what you pay for - this is half the price of a high end golf course). At least the conditions are better than last year. Thankfully, they seem to be putting water on the fairways this year, where last year they let them dry out until they became really hard. At full price, there are better plays around about the same money. But all in all its a nice play for not that much money.
