Almost Perfect

Our round at Chestatee was almost perfect. Pace of play was the only issue as this became a 4:40 round. Conditions, layout and staff were fantastic as always, just need to tighten up on slow play.

Chestatee work the drive

Only complaint is the difficult tee shots. Straight works all day. Slightly off on 5-6 holes and just go ahead and hit another one. Because youre not finding it. So definitely a test but also has spots that are easy and balances it all out. Good course

Good North Georgia Golf

Chestatee has a fun layout with a good mix of challenging and forgiving holes that puts potential to score well out there. Some blind tee shots and dog legs, but not too many and made up for by the holes that are wide open. Undulation can make for a challenge from the fairways, but not unfairly. Greens were in great shape and running at moderate pace, but tend to run a little on the slow side. Staff is friendly. Range flips between mats and grass. Short game facility is small but accurate to course conditions. Definitely worth the rate.

Great course great day

Course is really getting in good shape. Fairways are hard because of lack of rain but greens and course looks good. Greens were running a little slow but very true. A little rain and this course will be in pristine condition. Pace of play was awesome and rangers were out there and very friendly. Enjoyed a great golf day, highly recommend!!!

Chestatee Review

Chestatee is always a fun place to play. Despite being on a weekend, we buzzed around in 3.45 hours and the course was in solid shape. Greens rolled true and accepted good shots only complaint was the bunkers needing more sand.

Very nice alternative!

My home course was having a Member/Member so I needed another place to play. I used to play Chestatee a lot 15- 20 years ago. It's still a great layout. 8, 9, 10 are 3 really tough holes and can blow up your round if you aren't playing your best...I doubled all 3 and #3 but still ended up with 87 so not too bad on the other holes.

Gorgeous day on a great course.

Great place….

People and course are great. Some very challenging holes. Great we’re in great shape too. Driving range (mats only) isn’t the best, but acceptable…
