Great cours great value

For the money this course is definitely worth it. Very surprised on well kept the greens and fairways along with tee boxes are. I would expect this course to be around mid 50$ for 18 holes but it’s not and that’s great for the golfers!

Jon

Chester is a great course for any level player. The course offers a good range of tee boxes for all level players at every hole. The fairways are well maintained. Greens are large and accessible from offline approach shots. Pace of play is what one would expect at a public course. The staff members at Chester are friendly, accommodating and will do all they can to make your round enjoyable.

Great Course and Value

Chester, yes for those who know it, a hidden gem in SC, not far from CLT. Worth the hike, so to speak. The greens and fairways are in great shape. A couple of tee boxes and one green had some flaws, but other than that a great course. From Mathews, NC is is only 50 minutes and I always seem to find a tee time. The starter and guys in the shop are friendly and will give you a warm reception. This course is worth the price of admission.

Great Course in great condition

After rains this past week I expected cart path only, just happy to get out and play and expect sloppy conditions. The Course was in great shape and not sloppy at all. No real issues and it is always in frat shape. 35 mile drive from Matthews but worth the drive. I’ll be back!!!
