Course Reviews

We really enjoyed this course, it was a little dry but everything is dry this year. The staff was very helpful and the course was a pleasure to play. The would for sure play this course again.

Played Cypress Bend two days previously; Crafts Farms evidently have some very hard working greens keepers because both Cybress Bend and Cotton Creek greens were in immaculate condition. The fairways were in great condition as were the tee boxes (tee boxes on Cypress Bend not as good as Cotton Creek). Plenty of water on Cotton Creek. Course plays longer than the yardage if it is windy (and it was windy) but it is still an acceptable challenge. We had one issue while playing because they had a tournament going on but Rick, the director of golf, corrected it quickly and made it worth our while. I've never been to a golf course where the Clubhouse personnel as well as the course starter and course marshalls were so concerned about the golfing experience for the visiting patrons. That is very much appreciated. I would play Cotton Creek again and again and again and again. One final note about the Craft Farms golf courses: Never in my lifetime have I played two better courses that are on the same premises. The level of excellence in the golf course is mind boggling. I've played courses from Hawaii to San Diego to Florida to Georgia and Indiana and Craft Farms is the best place I've ever played thus far in my lifetime.

Excellent contrast to Cypress Bend.
