About

Holes 18
Type Public
Par 72
Length 6500 yards
Slope 127
Rating 71.4

The Chimneys Golf Course features 18 holes of exceptional golf. Our signature feature is the abundance of native rock found on-site, intricately hand-laid throughout the course to accent our greens, fairways, and pedestal tees. With strict attention to detail and no homes in sight, the course plays as a par 72, just shy of 6500 yards over five sets of tees to accommodate golfers of all abilities. Combined with southern, hometown charm, The Chimneys is an experience unlike any public course in north Georgia.

Pace of Play and course condition

They don’t provide sand on the carts so there are many divots on the fairway. Also it seems that no one repairs ball marks on the greens. These can be over looked though if they could fix the pace of play. There is no staff member that monitors the pace, and it is excruciatingly slow more times than not. Definitely my biggest issue with this course.

Great time on a friday

Got matched up with two other singles and played in an easy four hours. Staff is all friendly. Love the course layout and lots of elevation changes. Greens are quick but not unfair, totally manageable and roll very true. Bunkers are in good condition. Pure golf with no houses around. Tees set up for all skill levels, tips are manageable for most mid handicaps

Once again.....

I have only played this course a handful of times, but each time it is great. The layout and level of difficulty are good for all levels of golfers. The greens - fast and furious in directions that you wouldn't expect. Great course and I can't wait to play again, especially when it warms up and the grass is green.

Great Course!!

Ive lived in Georgia since 1997 and have been playing Pine Hills in Winder as my predominant course. I played Chimneys 2 weeks ago for the first time. Monumental difference in the 2 courses. The terrain relief and the quality of the greens alone has me hooked. Best value for a great golf outing that Ive had in Northeast Georgia.

Chimney golf

The only problem was not the course itself but players not fixing their pitch marks on the greens. Overall the golf was B+ and thats a rating from a Scottish visitor.

Nice layout

Nice to play without being in someone’s back yard. They have good signage to find the tee boxes as the routing is a little tricky. No sand on the carts or tee boxes so no one fills their divots or seem to repair their pitch marks on the greens. Greens were a little slow the day we played but overall a good experience, will come back when in the area again.

Great place for every skill level

I enjoy this place every time I visit.The course has several fun holes for grip it and rip it.
You could shot your lowest round ever here or just have another multi bogey round..
You won't be disappointed.
