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.

Great course

One of my favorite courses to play. Although there's no water which makes the track easier, it's a lot of fun and well maintained for the most part

Why have tee times?

Why have tee times if the course doesn't keep to the tee sheet? I had a tee time for 7:10 Sunday morning. The starter allowed a group to tee off during my tee time which delayed our early morning start. The starter was nice but couldn't explain why other players were teeing off when my group was supposed to tee off. Very disappointed that the starter allowed a group that didn't have a tee time, tee off when I was supposed to begin my round. Let's hope they follow tee times on a regular basis and this was a rare occasion.

As for the course, slow and bumpy greens. Fairways, bunkers, and tee boxes were in good condition. Be careful getting a cart that is not under the carport/roof or you will be soaked in water falling from the roof of the cart (no warning or suggestion from the pro shop employee). I would not recommend playing on a weekend, poor management. It would be a nice round on a weekday when their lack of tee time awareness won't be as frustrating. There are much better courses in the area for $70 (weekend rate)

Nice course; Slow greens

The course was in a nice condition. The greens were very slow but I am chalking that up to recent aeration and sanding done a couple of weeks ago. The staff was very friendly. It could use a short game practice area. Overall, I enjoyed the course and will back.

Great Day of Golf

Pretty course. Very "playable". No homes on the course. Course was in very good shape including greens and sand traps. Very enjoyable day.

Downside: Good range but not nearly enough targets. No short game area. Small practice green with only 3 holes to putt at. No food - only chips and candy bars.
