A little crowded but steady pace

Friendly and helpful staff. The course was fairly crowded but we moved on at a steady pace. Took 4 hours complete 28 holes. Good experience, and an enjoyable day.

Good Value

Good bang for your buck. Kind of a cluster getting from pro shop to first tee. No one loves covid more than these guys. You’re not allowed inside the clubhouse, can only open the door to check in and there is one guy in there answering phones. Stood there for ten minutes in the doorway for him to tell me I was good to go. Club “pro” was just in his office not helping anybody.

Once on the course, it’s pretty solid, a 7.5. Greens roll pretty well for a muni and the fairways and tee boxes are pretty good. Long enough where you can hit driver on most par 4s and 5s and forgiving. A couple holes had some hard pan but only in a couple spots. Considering it’s $40, and in the heart of Buckhead, it’s a great option. I booked the night before on golf now for a Wednesday morning and there were tons of options. I’d recommend chastain.

First Time

I enjoyed the round thoroughly. The only thing that could have been better has nothing to do with the course. Parking is on the street and can be hard to find on a nice day when folks are out enjoying other parts of Chastain Park. The course is challenging and well-maintained. And there is not a better value in Atlanta. What I paid for 18 holes here (with a cart included) was less than half the rate for 9 holes (walking) at the closest public competitor. Golf can be an expensive sport, but courses like Chastain make it affordable without compromising quality of the course.

Pace of play is terrible

Th staff is friend and nice. The course pace of play in the evenings are very slow. The walkers will not allow faster players to play through. I never saw a marshall to regulate the pace of play either. The players on the course appeared to be only concerned with their pace of play, with no consideration for others.

Good for the price

Good course for the price, can get a little backed up, however. I like to play after work and have teed off as early as 5:15 or so and can rarely get more than 9 holes in before it gets dark.

The conditions of the course are fine for the price. Not sure how often they move the pin locations around, but it's been the same the last 3 or 4 times I've gone.

All in all, it's a great bang for your buck.

Course layout

Chastain Golf course has a class A layout, but maintenance is sometimes missing. Traps are not raked daily and lots of bear spots on fairways. With a little effort this could be one of the best courses in Georgia!,

Good Course, Poor Staffing

The course itself was nice and well taken care of, but the staffing was not great. Apparently you’re supposed to start on hole 10, and no one said anything despite the first tee box being 10 feet from my starters. So at the turn when we wanted to go to the back 9 we got told we may not even be able to play that because a worker didn’t do their job right. After sitting around for 20 minutes we were allowed to go, but we’re stuck behind a group of 4, we only had 2, and waiting 5+ minutes on each tee box.
