The Tattersall Youth Development Center at The First Tee Chesterfield Golf Course, as well as the First Tee of Richmond, was established to provide educational golf programs for junior players. This comprehensive learning facility includes an 18-hole golf course, a three-hole practice loop, a large grass practice tee, a putting green, and a short-game practice area. There's also a staff of qualified coaches and golf instructors that can help you improve your score no matter what your weakness is. As a learning course, it might not be what low handicappers are looking for if they want a challenge, but it's a perfect place for beginners and high handicappers to get some practice with the game. The layout is very forgiving with wide-open fairways that offer plenty of room. The greens are fast and sometimes framed with bunkers. There are several par-3 holes that will give you a chance to work on your short game.

Great course, bad timing

Showed up for my round and found the putting green, practice area, and front 9 closed for aeration of the greens. Played the back 9 and got a Golfnow account refund for the other 9 holes of play. Matt at First Tee and the Golfnow representative were very accommodating and great to work with to get my satisfaction. Thanks again.

Saturday at 1ST Tee

This is a great beginner course. Par 66. They had some youth classes around the range. It was great to see them learning golf. The course is fun to play from any of the tee boxes.

Nice short course for afternoon play

I have played the course several times and plan to return. Some positives include:
1) This is essentially an "executive" course or a course that has nine par-3 holes and 3 par-5 holes and is par 66. 2) It works very well for beginners and high handicappers, or for a quick 9 holes, 3) The course can be played ( all 18 holes) in roughly 3.5 hours on most weekday afternoons, 4) The layout has lots of variety and can be a challenge for lower handicappers who want to brave the longer tees, 5) The course is relatively narrow and rewards hitting it straight, 6) The course conditions are relatively good, especially the greens and fairways,7) The cost is very reasonable, and a senior can walk 9 holes in under 2- hours for $18.

The main negatives: 1) There is very rough grass ,4-6" long on the side fringes if many holes. This really should be shortened, as noted in many other reviews, 2) Pace of play can be very slow before 11AM, so play in the afternoon if you want to make time, 3) The tee- boxes are in bad shape right now and this is normal here, 4) The course handles rain well except holes #1 and #10, which can have mud or standing water near the greens, Low handicap golfers will not get to use their driver or 3- wood hardly at all.

In summary, I am a senior and like to walk ,9- holes on weekday afternoons. Good value and there are tees available for every level of play.

Over all great

I had a great time playing on Friday. There weren’t many people out so there was no one behind us pushing us along. The only thing I noticed was that the T boxes on the black Tees need a lot of attention. They are mostly dirt at this point but it’s still early in the season.

A gem

Great little course for practice and regular play. Learn to score well here on its several par 3s and stretch it out some on its couple of par 4s &5s. Kids will love it and better players should appreciate that short doesn’t mean easy. Fun and challenging for all. The young lady running the pro shop is a real pro. Her brother plays like one already.

Pace of play is awful

I tried to get a early tee time to avoid rush but this was still not enough to overcome the overcrowding of tee times and bad pace of play.

Great Beginner Course

It’s a short course, but that’s good for a beginner like me. There are still challenging Par 5 and Par 4 holes or they were to me at least. Round was 3.5 hours on a crowded Saturday. I can see this being a great after work course during the week.

Good Course in Great Shape

Nice course in very good shape. Bunkers and bunker rough are 1st class. Great deal for 18 holes. Short course but not very forgiving. Perfect practice for a high handicapper like me.
