The day started out cloudy with a little drizzle, 50 degrees, no snow and being the first one out.....Priceless.

This Coldwater Estates golf course is nicely laid out throughout the community and homes aren't intrusive to your view. With four (4) tee box's that range from 6,758yd/71.5/12 down to 5,147yd/68.6/111, you have good hole views from the tee box. Sixteen (16) holes are straightforward with perimeter bowl effect that keeps most everything, playable. The grass is full green "Tee to Green" with good yardage markings (sprinkler/blocks) from 200 yards in. Greenside grass is thick with the traps being mostly hardpan but raked smooth. Greens are good size/shape and putt (7-8) firm/true.

I played the "Deep End" tees on the Front 9 (3,177yd) because of the short yardage on this Par 36 side. With #4 Par 4 hole at 405yds and #9 Par 4 at 412yds, being the only tough length holes.

The Back 9 (3,581yd) however will wake you up in the first four (4) holes in yardage and green protection. More forced carries off the tee, full carry to the greens and grass pot bunker in the fronts. You'll get a lot of "up and down" practice if your long irons (190-160) aren't working on those 2nd shots. The #13 Par 4 at 478yd will test your game on every shot until it falls into the hole.

Enjoyed shooting 38/39 with 30 putts in 3.5hrs and look forward to playing here again.

Would travel: 20-30 Miles, Vacation Worthy
