Tips for the Golf Novice in Wisconsin Dells

Swing into the world of gold at Cold Water Canyon at Chula Vista Resort!

So you’ve decided to try golfing. Great! Cold Water Canyon at Chula Vista Resort is a great course for all ability levels. However, there are a few things you may want to know as you start a new sport. Here are some tips for the new golfer.


The right equipment is important to have as you start your golfing career. When looking for clubs there are a few things you may want to keep in mind. You will only need a few clubs to start and it’s important to focus on what will help you learn. Don’t be embarrassed to use clubs that are designed for beginners. Still not sure what to buy? Stop by the Pro Shop and we’d be happy to assist you!


Course etiquette is important. You don’t want be inconsiderate of anyone else on the course. So when you are out there make sure you don’t lag behind. However, you also need to make sure to wait your turn. You may not always tee off in the same order and your ball placement may also determine when it is your turn. If your ball has any chance of hitting someone yell “Fore!” You may use this term a lot when you first start out, it alerts others on the course to watch out. Lastly, take care of the course. Be wary of where you drive your cart and always rake a bunker if you hit a ball out of one.


The hardest part is getting started. Nothing is going to feel natural right away so don’t feel discouraged if you don’t see results immediately. You may also want to consider taking lessons so someone will be there to teach not only the fundamental but also a fully swing, short game and putting. If you invest in a membership at Cold Water Canyon lessons with PGA Director Todd Campbell are 10% off. You can also attend free golf clinics.

Stay positive

Starting a new sport is hard. Don’t let yourself get down as you learn. These things take time. Don’t let what the scorecard says get into your head.  Add a little extra fun to your day with our Stay and Play package. Overnight stays include waterpark tickets and there are a ton of other amenities available to you to help lighten your mood if you had a long day on the course.

What are you waiting for? Practice makes perfect! Book your tee time today and start working on your skills.

Tips and Tricks for Golfing in Wisconsin Dells

Chula Vista Resort  is home to Cold Water Canyon, a beautiful, historic golf course, and its the perfect place for your next golf outing.

Fall is officially here! Not to worry, there is still plenty of time left in our season at Cold Water Canyon Gold Course for you to test the waters and try out our course! We encourage new and experienced golfers alike to “play the canyon” at Chula Vista Resort. It’s a great course to hone your skills or learn the basics!

Our PGA Director of Golf, Todd Campbell, offers some tips and tricks for golfing at Cold Water Canyon Golf Course:

The Course


Dating back almost 100 years ago, Cold Water Canyon offers a unique experience from its front nine holes. Not many golfers realize that Cold Water Canyon Golf Course’s front nine consists of some of the earliest golf holes built in the state of Wisconsin. C.J. Wilson out of Chicago, IL designed the first nine holes in the early 1920s. The classic design may not be considered very long when considering today’s modern golf holes, but the tree lined fairways and small, target greens make for not only a challenging round of golf but also an enjoyable look back at how golf was first played. The abbreviated length is great for new golfers and the classic style dating back to the dawn of the game suits veteran golfers.

The Gear


We know gear isn’t everything but we have tons of options to choose from in the Pro Shop. It features a variety of merchandise options for both male and female golf newbies and enthusiasts. The shop is stocked with items from industry leaders including Nike, Adidas, Antigua, Page & Tuttle and Under Armour. If you’re new to the game and you aren’t sure what you’re looking for, we’d be happy to get you outfitted for your outing!

Cold Water Canyon Membership

This allows you to improve your skills without worrying about the thickness of your wallet! We understand everyone operates on a different schedule so we offer three different types of memberships: midweek only, weekend only and a full membership which includes every day of the week.
