About

Holes 18
Type Public
Par 72
Length 7035 yards
Slope 135
Rating 72.8

West Woods Golf Club offers three public golf courses designed by Richard Phelps who has designed a great number of golf courses in Colorado. The three courses have nine holes each but they are combined to form 18-hole courses. The combination changes each day to keep the game interesting. The Sleeping Indian/Cottonwood course at West Woods Golf Club is 7,035 yards from its championship tees, playing to a par of 72. The facility's landscape features ten lakes that add to the beauty and challenge of each course since they create many water hazards. The greens are average-sized and very sloped.

Bypass the Construction

With all the construction going on, you'd think the course was closed. It's not. The corse is in great condition, greens are rolling fast and true and the pace of play is the best I've seen. No waiting at any tee box.

2/3 Open

I've played this course twice and now. The 2 9s that are open play well. Not terribly long, easily playable from the tips. Some good looking signature holes with decent elevation change.

Driving range set on a downhill slope
Difficult for walkers to navigate the course due to construction
Mind your car, parking lot sits on the back side of a green

WW in April

Awesome course. Arvada seems to have sneaky good courses. Cottonwood 9 was fun, Silo was super imaginative and requires thought from shot to shot. Will be back. Only negatives were there were no discounts for or heads up about freshly punched greens. Course is also under heavy construction right now. Will be interesting to see what it's like when all of that is done in January.

Gotta play here!

Great course to walk or ride. Challenging for sure. If you are even off the front watch out for the back tends to always snake you. Course clubhouse is under construction, no food, n not many rest rooms available. Otherwise the course is why we go there to enjoy the view, have a bruh and play some good golf.

Fun Course

This is a really fun course with 3 9-hole options to choose from. The course is well kept and the greens are pretty awesome! Fast with lots of break and lag putts. Pretty average price for the quality, but worth the few extra bucks.

Great layout with some nice challenges.

This is the first time for me at this course. I really liked the area where the course is constructed. The nature area and bike paths that the course follows makes for an atmosphere that is Colorado.

I walked the course. The course is in very good shape, particularly just entering into the spring. Who ever designed the course has a passion for bunkers because there are a lot, and I found a lot of them. However, they are well maintained, so I can only complain about my inability to avoid them. The greens are in good shape, and reasonably fast.

The only downside for me was the pace of play, and that wasn't surprising given the great weather. The course was full. Because the other three persons in the foursome I was paired into failed to show up, I spent a lot of time waiting as a single in a course full of foursomes.

I would definitely play here again.

Good course

The course is in great shape, even though punched a few weeks ago making greens bumpy/fairway lies can be down...we just moved them out if they 'sat' in a dimple.
Pace of play can be slow in the middle of the day, but definitely one of the better courses on the west side.

Love this course

I played with 2 guys who's 1st time it was playing. Helped them to play the holes. I hadn't played there in 2 years and was expecting the pace of play to be slow. It took us exactly 4 hrs, which is really good for a weekend anywhere. Greens were rolling true and fairways were manicured. Those 2 guys were already setting tee times to come back and play this week. I missed playing here.

Great Course w/ Drainage Issues

Overall, this was a great course. The staff was friendly and the pace of play well ahead of where I would expect for a mid-afternoon Saturday game. The course was beautiful and green.

The only issue we ran into was around drainage. The Arvada area had experienced some heavy raining the day before and a fair number of holes had some drainage issues which impacted the playing experience (i.e. stuck golf balls, fairway flooding, extremely soft ground, and areas of standing water).

I am confident these issues would have not presented had it not been for the recent heavy rains. I will definitely give this course another chance in the near-future.

Needs some TLC

Played this course in a tournament and the pace of play was great and the marshal kept everyone moving, which is great for a Saturday. They had brown patches all over the fairways though and with a wet winter and spring, most other courses in the area are in great shape. The greens were a bit slow but we assumed it was due to them not wanting to lose the greens like they were with the fairways. The 2 nines that we played were really fun and are great layouts. If they can fix the conditions of the course then this place would be a 4 or 5 star facility!

After the snow!

Everyone stayed home! Had this great layout to myself. Would have helped my score to know the layout, but first time on the Indian and Cottonwood courses was a pleasure. Course was in great shape despite wet conditions due to weekend snow. And deep rough! Views were spectacular and grounds staff were very personable. Can you open up your pond to catch and release bass fishing?

Please don't play here--I want the course all to myself

This is a fabulous course of 27 holes. The best 18 are the Silo and the Cottonwood nines.

I really hesitated telling anyone about how great this course is, because I want to keep it all to myself.
