Fun course, good day

This was my 2nd time here. The check-in was seamless. The staff was warm and welcoming. The practice area is limited (hitting into nets, practice green different than the course greens, and small chipping area). They sent us off the back 9. The greens were quite speedy, supposedly 12-12.5 last week, and #13 would hardly hold a downhill putt, sending balls 30+' past off the green. Think Mickelson, here. The fairways were in good shape. The pace was good. This is probably more of an irons/woods course for its narrow windows and shorter landing areas, especially #1, 4, 8, 9, 14, & 18. The restaurant closes 5pm, so it is not helpful for later tee times. Hacienda Real in Frisco is good if you're headed east and want some food. This is a fun course that is worth playing! Enjoy!

Very fast greens

Although short, don’t let that fool you, from the correct tees this is still a very challenging course, with narrow fairways and fast undulating greens. At almost 10000ft you can struggle for breath on occasion. We were a 3 ball and pace of play was good. Staff friendly. Would recommend if in the area.

True Mountain Golf

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our inaugural round at Copper Creek getting paired with some great local guys who were gracious hosts. Our positive experience began with the friendly golf staff and finished with a most enjoyable round of true mountain golf. Thanks Copper Creek!

Can’t stop it from raining on us!

Greens wicked fast, but course is otherwise ok. A few tricked up holes but not bad overall. Wish the weather would have been better..

Not a Fun Round

The first thing we noticed when we arrived at the golf course is that there are really no markings to tell you where to check-in for the course. You can see the course, but the golf shop is hidden away among the lodging units, and ski buildings. After driving around and looking we finally parked in the parking lot designated for golfers, and asked someone playing the course where to check-in. Even though we rode in a cart there is still a great deal of walking involved to play the course, and since the course has a lot of elevation changes this is not ideal for more senior golfers. When we first teed off the pace of play was fine, but after 4 or 5 holes everything got backed up, and we had to wait on almost every shot. It got so frustrating that we quit with 2 holes left to play. I would not recommend this course to other golfers.

Sorry, unfriendly management team and conditions

The management team is prejudiced against Golf Now players in an overt manner and does its best to make them unwelcome. I would not recommend this course. Further, from the putting green to the so-called driving range, the facilities are decidedly fourth class. If that is not reason enough, management policy requires play to begin on the back nine every other day and the 10th hole is a par 3 requiring 100% carry over water from tee to green. A very poor starting hole.

Front nine deceiving

The front nine had a lot more water than I expected. I hit some really good shots that to my surprise, found water. The back nine was very picturesque with a lot of elevation changes. Some beautiful holes on the back .I'd play it again with a lot different club selection.

The staff is excellent, the fellow golfers however...

I'll start with the important stuff...

There is no beverage service or food before 10:30am. Apparently this isn't something Copper is looking to accommodate. I have spoken with the staff plenty of times to know its not the golf operation, but Copper F&B.

This is more something I have noticed the few times I have played at Copper Creek...

Guests, especially those who purchase "Hot Deals" are exceptionally mean and disrespectful to the staff. You bought a discounted round for a SPECIFIC time. You don't get to go early because you see an open tee box. Want to play earlier? PAY FOR IT.

There are a few driveable par 4's (or so people think) that slow play down around 9 and 14. Sit there for a few minutes and all you hear is complaints about pace of play. Even with this, especially on a busy Saturday morning, I have yet to play a round in over 4 hours and 20 minutes. The twenty something guys in front of me (two groups?) this past weekend were the most outrageous I've seen ever. They also took their problems into the golf shop thinking they should be compensated for leaving a golf course, 5 holes in, after only an hour post frost delay.

Yes, I am partial to Copper as its close to home and affordable, but this isn't the only place I see and here this. Since when did golf stop being a gentleman's sport and start being a sport for the entitled and demanding?

The course did not have a driving range (only hitting nets), the putting green was in such terrible shape it was unusable, and the course layout was terrible.. I also thought the staff was not very accommodating:. I had made the teetime online using a “Golfnow “hot deal” and even though the course was wide open as many people had cancelled due to weather they would not let us tee off early.. I would never play the course again.!
