Unbelievable experience

I was in Durham on business and was a guest at Old Chatham. If you ever get a chance to play this course, play it! The club house was gorgeous and gives you a feel for the history of North Carolina. The amenities in the men's locker room were top notch. This place is unreal

The driving range was in incredible shape. We warmed up for 20 mins and hit the course. This course was long and a challenge. You have to drive the ball accurately to score well. Most of th Par 4's were well over 410-430 yards. The shortest par 3 we played was 180. The fairways are wide but the rough can be tough if you miss the fairways. Most of the greens are surrounded by bunkers so you better be on your sand game. The greens were running around 12-13. Very fast and firm. This was a challenge.

I cannot recommend this cours more! Best I have played in North Carolina

Outstanding Private Course--Best in Area

At first I was surprised that Old Chatham had zero reviews? Quickly, my brain worked the way it is designed and blasted that Old Chatham is so great, so private, so lush, so well maintained that they do not entertain outside reviews. They don't need it. it's like reviewing Pinehurst #2, or August National, or any other top course. It's just not needed. Yet, I love golf and Old Chatham that a few words is a good thing.

I am not a member at OC. I have had the pleasure many time, however, to enjoy the course. Wide fairways, outstanding greens, and all the amenities. This is a golf club. No pool. \

When I first played OC 10 years ago, I felt like Tin Cup's caddie on the practice range--"Hey look at this--real Titleists!" . The place still keeps me in awe. Just great golf in a subdued, upscale atmosphere. It exudes the love of golf.
