Nice short courss

Playec 2 of the 3 9 hole courses. Lots of long par 3s and shorter 4s. Accuracy and club selection are necessary to score well. I repaired at leasg 6 ball marks on every green.

Great course for fun afternoon

This was my first experience with this course. 3 nines which are rotated to make 18. I played the red and green courses with a friend. We walked and were joined by a business pair on an outing - great fun. The course was in good condition with the exception where the old water system had sprung a few leaks. Greens were fair size, well mowed and trimmed. Most had unrepaired ball marks. Shorter course thru a nice housing development made of short 4's and long 3's. Fairways were usually wide and well mowed and the rough trimmed short enough to locate errant balls and long enough to challenge your shot making. Enjoyed the experience and will play again often. It suits my skill set and playing level.

Fun round

This is an executive course, no par 5's. Longest home is 340 yards. The par threes are long and difficult. Most between 170-220 yards. Greens were in good shape. I played here a lot last year and found a great deal on Golf Now and played it again.

Had my best round in years.

The only drawback is a lack of a driving range. So hard to warm up.

Neat course, but maintenance lacking

Have played this course on numerous occasions. Was disappointed that they have eliminated driving range.
Very disappointed this time that course conditions were at best fair. Greens were in great shape, but fairways & rough were in very poor condition. Is pretty sad when you can loss a ball in the fairway on a well hit & placed shot.
If they get their maintenance back on track, is a good course to go out & have a nice day on the course.

Difficult Par 3

First off I was charged an extra 2.50 and I'm not sure why. Rough is long and not thick making many balls fall underneath the grass to bare dirt areas. This makes getting out of the rough difficult for inexperienced players. The rough and most fairways are narrow. Houses on every hole are very close to the rough. NOT A GOOD COURSE FOR A BEGINNER. The guy I took had a bad overall experience here. Almost every par 4 hole was reachable, but there isn't much room for misses. The members I encountered are very nice and friendly. Tee boxes were confusing with red tees the farthest back. Club house had great snacks. Overall I was satisfied, but wouldn't go here again as it's too far to travel for the limited fun I had.

Good Value

Course has recovered and been renovated from worn and run-down condition experience a couple years ago. Re-opening onsite food and beverage service adds strongly to the renovation.

Great...but slow

Played the front nine behind a group that took 2:15. Went to the back with no one ahead and played it in 1:00. Great value and course was in great condition. Would go back for sure.

Short Course

While this course was in good shape and the greens were even better, for me and many of my friends, this course was on the short side. Being a par 3 and 4 track, I forgot that several of the par 4 hole were under 300 yards from the blue tees. I just turned 50 and I am simply not ready for this style of course.

Tough Par 3's

Course in great shape. Easy walking, overall short. Par 3's average about 190 yards! Longest being 238 yards from the tips. That's what makes it tough. I played in under 3 hours.

Outstanding executive course

Just to be clear-- Charboneau is an executive course, meaning there are no par 5's.
In fact, the longest hole is around 350 yards.
But, you must know, this is a FINE course. Tranquil and challenging at the same time. Very forgiving fairways. Clever use of water and sand traps. Fast play. Friendly staff.
Have been coming to Charboneau for 3 years, just since my 17 year old took up golf. And it's been a wonderful experience for him to get his feet wet in this game. It was never overwhelming for him when he started...like a full course could be for a newby.
Now, here we are, 3 years later...my 14 year old is 17 now. And he absolutely crushes his drives down the fairway. He's out driving me. And some days, out playing me.
And it all started at Charbonneau. This is where he learned the game.
We really enjoy coming here still.
It's a fun afternoon on a beautiful course.

Great shape this time of year

Had a great time. No one in front no one in back of me. Course a little wet in places. Greens in great shape. Landscapers were trying to keep up with the leaves to no avail though. Lost a couple balls in the leaves. I know supposed to stay in fairways. 10 bucks 18 holes 2hrs 45mins. Great deal.

Charbonneau

Fun course to play. Short par 4's that are frequently drivable. Some par 3's are pretty difficult. Good condition, pace of play is really good.

Poor communication and monitoring

On August 25 my wife and I used Golf now to book a round of golf at Charbonneau Golf Club even though I had an email stating round was paid in full I was not allowed to continue checking in(along with an conformation Number) 15 minutes later when that was cleared up I was on my way. 4 some ahead of us and we where paired up with another 2 perfect I thought. But know the pro shop changed it so we where 2 Two somes and the 4some would not let us through this did not make for an enjoyable round. I was very disappointed. I play there 3 to 4 times a month I will think next time about Golf Now and Charbonneau Golf Club.

should b much better

I play this every once in awhile, as my wife likes it. The overall condition is fair. Towels left off ball washing machines, some ball washers are busted, lot of fairway is dry as dirt -not good impression.

On the positive side, it may return to the beautiful
course of last yr and the yr before. Staff is the best.
Pro shop is very expensive.
