Great Round of Golf

Chapel ridge is great course. One of the best in the Raleigh area. I would highly recommend this course. It is a great course challenging but you won’t lose a lot of balls. Has to be one of best value courses around.

Not what it used to be.

Chapel Ridge has always been one of my favorite layouts however my last round there was somewhat of a let down. The greens were fine, somewhat slow but rolled good. The fairways were average at best and a lot of the course looked unkept and overgrown. Like all other courses Chapel Ridge has increased their prices but it doesn't' appear the money is going back into the course. Hopefully this will change and the course will get back to what it used to be.

It is a favorite of mine but…

Lately the pace of play there has been pretty poor. Made the turn and 7 carts were on the #10 tee - that is inexcusable. This turned what was a fairly quick round into an abysmal enjoyment sucking round. 15-20min waits at every tee box. The ranger needs to do more than start the groupings. There needs to be some enforcement of the pace of play. There are a few holes with blind tee shots, so why not have carts with the electric ranger and show the gps of the course. It’s 2022, I think it’s time to propel the game forward a bit.

The grill was out of hot dogs and the extras were frozen? And they weren’t actively thawing any out (from my plying partners POV).

A short game area would be amazing too. The whole right side of the range is unused why not install a small chipping/short game complex. 20yrd shots.

Tee boxes have a terrible crab grass infestation and the 3 or 4 pins were cut into healing fungal areas causing the putts to wobble near the cup.

The rest of the course was top notch condition and I love the layout here! This used to be the premier course in the area and I always thought of it as a benchmark but it’s falling away from that as of late.

I will continue to play here however I now know to expect it to be a 5hr or more round.

Went downhill

I used to love to play here but not now. Always loved the layout and was usually in decent to good shape and used to be priced fairly. But ooooh how times have changed.I will start off by saying no i did not pay full rack rate which is now $89. I got a deal on golfnow thank god. New greens?????.... i couldnt tell same as the old ones sloooow and not cut short enough. Crabgrass everywhere. Bunkers were a mess. Tee boxes need watering or give players a hammer to get tee in the ground. No right to charge $89 rack rate. Place was empty too. Now on to the staff. Guy behind desk is rude flat out rude and uninformed. Even though i pre paid through golf now. They still try and charge me extra for a cart because im a single..... lol unreal. Once tried to get a lesson booked here. The pro actually told me he can only do mornings. Ummmmm i work like most people. This track has all but been eliminated from my cycle of courses. Only played because i got a hot deal.....oh and new "DYNAMIC" pricing.... $75 at twilight lol lol lol lol. Please....

A Great Layout, High Price, Low Amenities

The course is a great layout, wide open with large Bermuda greens and a variety of elevations. The fairways were filled in nicely and greens had recently been verticut. There had been work done in the bunkers, but still lots of rocks in each bunker.

The staff in the clubhouse and grill weren't very friendly. Pace of play was very slow for an 11am tee time in 90 degree weather, with very little etiquette from the group ahead of us as we waited on them on every hole. No starter on the first tee, no beverage cart, and no ranger during the entire round.

Lots of the tee boxes had tall weeds on them, areas around the greens had not been mowed. Lots of bare/hard pan spots on the edges of fairways and cart paths. The tee markers need to be repainted, as well as a 2nd tee marker for hole 12 par 3 as there is only one.
There is no drinking water or ball washer water on the course.

For the lack of amenities, it is hard to justify paying full price on the weekends. It's a great track that needs some attention to detail and staff care. As a local golfer that plays 60+ rounds a year, I will spend my money elsewhere.

Could be an upper tier course if they would drastically improve the bunkers and improve the fringe areas.
