About Cottonwood

Cottonwood Golf Club is open to the public and requires no reservations. The course is a nine-hole, par 35, and is USGA certified. We are located 3 miles west of Steele, ND on Hwy 10. We offer club and cart rentals as well as general concessions and beer. The course is happy to host private events and tournaments throughout the season. Check our event listings for availability or contact us via our web form.


As a rule, Cottonwood generally opens shortly after the snow melts. This year, we expect the course to be open in late April or early May. The course will remain open 7 days per week until the snow falls again.
