Great golf course

CWCC is my new go-to golf course. It’s always busy but the pace of play is very steady. The greens are in great shape considering the heat. Good job CWCC, keep up the good work.

Championship Golf Course

Championship Golf Course - and, at times, you can play it for $20 if you walk. Incredible deal and it is a great walk if your healthy enough to do it. If you tee it up from the black tees and the normal afternoon breeze is in effect, after #1, your in for a war. #5 and #7 give you a break but the rest are really tough. #3 is a brutal par 4 and #8 one of the toughest legit par 5's around. The back nine is a little easier. The whole course is really nice. Huge cottonwood trees all over, essentially no houses, and the course is in the best shape in many years. Its not one of those places you will lose a bunch of balls if you do not play well either as there are not many hazards and no gimmicks. Straightforward classic golf course. This place has a lot of history. Hopefully still a lot of life left. Enjoy. Totally appreciate you Cottonwood GC.

It would fun to employ some of the original tee boxes for players 5 handicap or less! Tee boxes need a bit more attention but greens great (more people need to fix ball marks). Course and conditions were terrific!

Poor Management

Played on the hottest day of the year 114 degrees. Waited for over an hour to get on the course. No one was in front of us but because we made an online t time they wouldn't change it. Every course I have been to will put you on the tbox if no one is in front of you. Beverage cart was sent home because ( no one was on the course ) but you could see many personnel still playing and no water to be served.
Unfortunately me and my crew won't be back.

Very impressed

First time back since COVID. Very surprised at the great conditions all around. Tee boxes, fairways, greens were the best I’ve seen compared to most South Bay courses. Carts are old, range is lacking but for the price and conditions, by far the best.

Definitely will return. Surprisingly no blue tees. Either white or black. I think it’s their way of speeding up play since most will be intimidated to play blacks.

Very pleased. Will return for sure.

Love this course, pace could use improvement

The sand is actually playable unlike many local courses during COVID. Nice greens, fairways, and tee boxes. The rough is penalizing. The only knock on this course is the lack of a marshal to keep people at a decent pace. 2.5 hours per nine is frustrating to me. Mostly due to players not playing ready golf or not understanding the concept of ready golf. Maybe it’s a weekend thing?
