Cottonwood Creek's front nine is open, with a few trees, no real trouble and not a whole lot of variety. On the back nine there are a couple of pretty holes, more variety, some big dogs that require some course managment, and two fun and challenging holes. Most of the fairways are pretty open, some are side by side, and with fair course management, you should score well. The greens were true, slow, gently sloping, and easy to read.
On this round in March 2007 the front nine greens and fairways were not in the best of shape – they were being aerated and the drought has been tough on all courses in 2007. The back nine was in better, but not great condition. The majority of the bunkers are around the green and aren't that difficult to avoid. Water comes into play on 6 holes and can be a major challenge on a couple of the holes.
Cottonwood Creek is a good family course and you can have an enjoyable round here at a good value.
