Beautiful course

Scenic mountain vistas. Excellent conditions, although the greens were somewhat slow. A lot of elevation changes made for blind tee shots on the uphill holes. Well worth the trip to North GA.

First time and never again

The course was nice, the staff...no way. For $80, there are better places to play. The Marshall kept saying we are behind and there are 200 people waiting, yeah right, not in best dreams. Finished exactly in 4 hours and never had anyone waiting on us. Never again

Great Course but the Greens....

I have played this course a couple times before in the winter and spring and it was in great shape. It is a nice course with some very challenging holes and very enjoyable, however on these occasion the greens were not good; they had lots of weeds (like crab grass??) and some dried spots that made making puts very difficult. Also the speed was inconsistent among holes. Pace of play was good, I had to wait in many holes because I was a single behind a foursome so I played 2 balls in most holes. I will play it again and hopefully the greens issues will have been corrected

Heading downhill

I recently played the course in February and it was in perfect condition. I’m not sure what changed but the greens are awful now. They are so bad, I would compare them to Countryland or Sugar Hill. The bunkers have no sand. It almost gets the feeling they are in the middle of selling off the land. Not worth the money to play here for me.

I recommend playing here

Very good day of golf with nice conditions and good pace of play. $5 for 11-15 range balls is kind of absurd, but other than that, I enjoyed it.

Good course, good shape

I really enjoy the layout at Chestatee, lots of different shaped holes and challenging layout. Get to use most of the clubs in the bag. Conditions are good not great, struggling with some weed issues on the greens, but fairways are in really nice shape. Great value for the money and always an enjoyable day. Hopefully they get the weed issue under control and back to great shape. I will be back.

Greens not great

Very inconsistent green conditions. Some greens were in very poor shape for the $$ they charge. I have seen these greens in better shape. Course layout is great as always.

Horrible Greens

Greens were in terrible shape. Tee boxes hadn’t been mowed in awhile. Pace of play was terrible. Second time playing here and pace of play terrible also terrible that time.

A good test

A good course in surprisingly good condition for a public course. The greens had not been cut but were still in pretty reasonable shape, espcially knowing how badly affected some of the area's private courses have been. Challenging on some holes as there was little run following recent rains, but still a nice course to play. Only snag was the pace, following a lone guy who insisted on playing several balls when it suited him!
