Great Course during the week!

I love playing this track because I always think next time will be a lower score. On the weekends it takes 5 hours and weekdays around lunch 3.5-4 hours. Course was in pretty good shape considering the weather.

Terrible pace of play

Doesn’t drain well... hasn’t rained in a couple of days and was still very sloppy wet in most places. Pace of play was terrible. Finished in 4:45 min. Also teed off 15 min after our original tee time. They have two options of range bag sizes. One is a small with 15 balls in it and then the other is a huge bag for like 500 bucks. Way over priced.

great vistas

enjoyed the course, nice variety in hole layout. Greens were great but I found them very difficult to read. Would need to play it a few more times to learn some of the nuances of the greens and some of the blind shot targets.

Slow day

My wife and I have played Chestatee many times and have always enjoyed it. Saturday our tee time was 1:06 and arrived at #1 only to find it backed up. That was the story all day. We found out later in our round we were behind the last group of a 14 group tournament. We finally skipped #16 passing two groups just to finish before dark. If you are booking a round, ask about what’s going on. No one from the club house to the starter gave a heads up.

Chestatee

It was a great round The only suggestion for improvement would be to better manage the water retention in the bunkers. Many of them were unplayable due to several inches of water.

Another good day at Chestatee

It was cool when we teed off but warmed up to be a perfect day for golf. Course conditions were good, especially the greens which were firm but receptive and had some good pace. They were quicker than the last couple of times at the course and rolled very well. Saw the beverage cart 3 times in our round which is nice as the course doesn't go back to the clubhouse at the turn. Pace of play was good even though we were a twosome playing behind a threesome. We played in 3:45. The staff was friendly and courteous. One of my favorite courses in the metro area.

Beautiful Day

We had a great day on the links for mid-November. The weather was beautiful but the pace of play was pitiful. The course was in great shape. Greens are in excellent condition and rolling pure. Fairways & tees are in good condition going into late fall. Now the pace of play....we had a couple of wanna be Pros in front of us who would take an eternity to hit their next shot, they would drive to their ball, get out of the cart, walk to their ball, admire the shot they just hit, get a yardage, go back to their cart, decide on a club, walk back to their ball, 5-8 practice swings, align themselves to the sun, trees, pin or whatever else, pause for 40-60 seconds (yes we timed it) then finally hit the shot, and you guessed it, the shot was as pitiful as the pace of play...amatuer pre-shot routines do not need to be a mirror of what they see on the Golf Channel. We had no opportunity to get into a rhythm as we were waiting on every shot minus our tee shot on 1. We asked on course employees to assist with the speed of play with little or no improvement. Keep in mind weekend play here will be 5-6 hour on course commitment.

AMAZING - PERIOD

I have been lucky enough to play several rounds of golf throughout this pandemic. I am now asking myself - WHY DID I NOT PLAY THIS COURSE SOONER?! The course was in excellent condition (ok, the leaves are about to be an issue)... the greens - RIDICULOUS. The fairways - super well groomed (kudos to the superintendent and crew)... We saw the drink cart three times... (when does that happen anymore?). If you are looking for a great course, a fun challenge and a great value - Hit them up! Nice work guys! FORE!

Great condition

Played Friday morning, two days after torrential rains. Great condition and cart path only on a hand full of holes. Greens were in great shape! Excellent value for the money.
