“Amazing Course...Dismal hospitality”
Reviewed August 11, 2012

Upon arriving at the course, our golf bags were immediately taken from us and we were told to go park. After that, it was sort of a "figure it out for yourself" sort of affair. We made our way inside to check in, found our cart & clubs, made our way down to the driving range and then returned to the first tee box. Oops! Turns out there are two courses and we were at the wrong one. No apologies from anyone for not explaining things to us so we sped over to the correct course and made it one minute before our tee time.

We golfed the Ridge course...amazing course and I loved every second of it. Undulating fairways, challenging but fair greens, scenery beyond belief. But the MAJOR downfall...no real snack shack on the course. The course does not pass by the clubhouse so you really have to rely on the cart service. Even basic courses have a stop for some hot food so to not have access to this, not be told about it, and to pay pretty high green fees...not in balance.

The other complaints - while the carts have coolers, nobody bothered to put any ice in them, and the carts barely had any juice in them to get us back to the clubhouse...we actually thought ours might die on the final hill. Never experienced that before.

I would definitely golf here again...like I said...loved the course. But bring your own ice and bring your own snacks if you don't like golf cart sandwiches for lunch.

“The Ridge is a must play!”
Reviewed August 6, 2012

We played the Ridge this past Saturday and as always had an amazing time. The Copper Point Golf Course has an amazing team, the greens are in wonderful shape and the staff are so incredibly accommodating and extremely professional. Thank you Brian and team Copper Point, we had such a fabulous day! Looking forward to coming back for our week in September, see again soon!

“Menu incorrect - but food nice”
Reviewed July 13, 2012

we went here on one of the first weekends they opened this season. I was really excited because the online menu looked really lovely. When we got there we found a menu about quarter of the size. Saying that the food we good was pretty amazing - we were really happy with it. The service was also really good. It would have gotten a 5 star if the menu online was correct

“Not connected to Copper Point Resort”
Reviewed July 9, 2012

Well maintained resort - wide fairways, well maintained greens and plenty of pretty landscaping. Not much water but plenty of sand. 5 tee boxes to select from. Service at the golf course was great - they'll set up your cart and wash your clubs. Just an FYI - they're not affiliated with the Copper Point Resort which is where we stayed. The resort is across the highway from the golf course and not walkable with golf clubs.
