Pace of play wasn’t bad for Father’s Day.

Chester CC

We had a great first time experience at Chester GC. The staff was great, all of the golfers we encountered were great. The greens were just coming back from aeration so they were a bit bumpy. There were a couple of rough tee boxes but all in all the experience was a pleasure.

Slowly Getting Better

Not as muddy as yesterday but still a month away from being a nice shade of green.
87° and not having any cold water anywhere on the course is NOT a good thing.
Somebody needs to think up a safe solution!

Gave average for course conditions just because a large amount of rain causing the fairways to be very wet and in places muddy. The fairways are open. Long par 4 and even longer par 5. The par 3 are even a challenge. Definitely a great course to play.

Classic Layout with Tricky Greens

Chester is hidden in the woods amongst a group of factories, but it was actually a pretty fun little layout. That is, if you exclude the loud freight train horns.

It’s an older classic design that’s easily walkable without a ton of real estate between holes. There are a bunch of doglegs in both directions, which force golfers to create shots, but not much in terms of elevation changes. There is, however, a good amount of water, mostly guarding the greens.

The course was very playable and fairly easy, but the greens were undulating, tricky, and actually pretty small. Definitely recommend that golfers take the time and try to hit shots below the hole as much as possible.

Still, for being a rural course, it’s an easy drive from Charlotte and Columbia, and I would return for another round in the summer. I wouldn’t expect pristine conditions, but for a good price, it’s worth a play.

OVERALL: 6.4/10
