Poor Conditions

Paid full price for course that was in the process of being plug aerated and staff failed to mention it. I would have went elsewhere and came back another time once the fairways were playable. Now I don’t see myself returning.

Great course in the country.

This is a fun track. The greens were fast but true. The course is in great shape. Wide open fairways but you still have to hit your targets. Tee boxes are in good shape. Management is investing in this course. Still some construction around it. This is worth the drive and we’ll be back.

Course in great shape

Beautifully manicured course. Wide open. Course in great shape. Entire staff friendly and helpful. Still considerable construction underway and not all hole markers in place, but staff very helpful. Good course. Enjoy!

Wonderful golf course !!

It's hard to find anything to complain about this course. Elaborately managed course conditions, a bit challenging but fun layouts, the fast pace of the play, friendly faces of emplyees.... Yes! Everything about this course is nearly perfect. The only thing you might see it a little inconvenient is probably the location of it. It's a bit far north from the populated area. But I don't mind driving about 50 minutes (mostly on highways) to get up there and pay a little more than $30 for a hotdeal on weekdays or $45 on weekends.
Because, I know it would cost me way more than $60 and frustrated by slow pace on every single hole if it were located near where I live. I know a couple of really good courses near my place but, like I said, I pay way more and spend much longer to finish a round. Don't hesitate to come and play here if you haven't. You're gonna love the course unless you are one of those who hates driving more than a half an hour for golf.

Worth the drive

First time playing here , well worth the 45 minute drive from my house. Lots of upgrades and improvements going on here that will make this place even better. the practice facilities will be top notch by the end of the summer, only the driving range needs a little attention IMO. Course is in great shop and greens are smooth. Staff is very welcoming and attentive. I look forward to playing here again soon.

Notes Chimney Oaks for the rank by Golfer's choice

I learned that golf course and its rank from this year's golfer's choice and played with three of my friends last Thursday. Overall, I will give it 4 stars at least comparing the price and overall course conditions: the tee-box is in good shape, fairway is in great condition and smooth, while the greens are in moderate speed, firm and almost spotless - will play there again although it with one-hour driving distance.

Nice Day on the Course

I have played here many times as this course has evolved over the years. I really like the direction that is ongoing with the course with constant improvements. The greens and bunkers are in great shape, and the fairways were greening up. Also, an increased size practice green is on the way with a new clubhouse soon to open. The only downside was some of the rough needed to be trimmed and/or serviced with weeds growing up in certain areas. Really enjoy playing here, and will be back.
