Great Local course

Teetime was right after a torrential downpour. Course was soaked but it drained well. It was a cool afternoon with a nice breeze. The people there are super friendly and helpful. Definitely go play!

Great Course in the Georgia Mountains

My wife and I played this course for the first time and loved the layout and the course conditions. From the back tees it makes you play all your clubs; and you cannot take driver on every hole. Pace of play was a little slow with a couple learning the game in front of us. On the back nine we joined up with a single who is a member and regular at the course; and enjoyed his company and his guiding hand around the course. The course is a great challenge, and now that we have played it once, we know how to play it. Well worth a visit for anyone who enjoys a good old traditional layout.

Weather perfect, great friends, good course

Despite recent rains, the course was in very good conditions. Had perfect golf weather and great friends to play with. People ahead of us the first few holes but after that it was clear sailing. The course layout has some holes where you need to know which side of the fairway to hit and how far but other than that it is a great course to play.

Poor conditions

The course was in terrible condition due to rain. Although it was an act of God, I feel we should have been told about standing water everywhere.
Golf balls were “plugged” on almost every shot. Traps were unplayable.
Very disappointing. We only got nine in .

Great day in the mountains

Played in the late morning on a good day in November. I played as a single behind a foresome. Played in 3 1/2 hours - very good pace! Greens are in great condition. Putting very true. Not a country club, but a great deal if you just want to play golf. Great views of Lake Chatuga on several holes as well as views of the surrounding mountains. Very peaceful and relaxing.

Decent shape, fun day

Weather was good, mostly cloudy and pace of play was great. We moved along and it was an enjoyable round. The course was in decent shape, greens held the shots well and although the greens were a little bumpy they were puttable.

Always know what to expect

I have played here numerous times and always enjoy myself. Conditions not always perfect ,but for the money it is VERY nice. Plan on keeping Chatuge amongst many courses I have play that are at most one hour from me.

Lost ball heaven

Stock up on balls before you play this course. Even the fairway has large clumps of grass in it

Lower your expectations

We decided to play here because it had a 4 star review and there was a discounted tee time of $25/player instead of their usual $40. For the course conditions, $25 was plenty expensive. The greens are inconsistent with some dead spots and plenty of unfixed ball marks. The fairways and tee boxes are essentially yard grass/weeds cut low. On at least two holes, I was hitting off dirt (blue tees).The pace of play was slow (4.5 hours for 18 holes). The grill was closed, so there was nothing substantial to eat there. Finally, the practice range is not great either. Overall the facility is a solid 2.5/5 on a good day. With the amount of better kept courses at a similar prices nearby, we will definitely look to go elsewhere next time.
