The Hill Course was an excellent challenge. I have played the lower course before but this as my first time playing up top and it did not disappoint.

If you hit good shots you can score (if you are a decent putter). If you hit poor shots, you are punished...sometimes severely but fairly.

Get out here and play as soon as you can. Enjoy fall golf at its finest.

Very hot day and we saw the cart girl on #1 and never saw her again. On this course you do not make the turn at the clubhouse and there were few vending machines to purchase any water.

Decent track but on hot days the course management should take care of their playing public.

The course is beautiful, but since we played the Hill course, because the Lake course was closed for aeration, it was painfully slow. I think 4:45 for 18 holes is sad!!

Played here numerous times and never had an issue like this. There were 5 groups....yes 5 groups waiting to hit on the par 3 7th hole 178 yards. They had a ranger but he was no where to be found. We quit after 9 holes, went into the pro shop telling them very pleasantly of the major backup and that we couldn't be out here all day. Not a word was said ...no offer of a 9 hole refund...nothing. We felt like they could care less. Extremely disappointing

It's a shame when a foursome won't let a twosome play through. We played the front nine in 1:15, but then caught a foursome who refused to wave us thru and watch one guy take a nine on a par 3! Still a great day, though.

This course is one of my favorites for handicapper between 10-20. If you don't hit the fairway all the time but maybe miss by a little you can still score on this course. If you miss it by a lot, you will get penalized for sure but it is a super fair course. There are lots of trees and lots of Hills (hence the name of the course) but even for someone who doesnt hit it 300yds off the tee the Par 5s can be reached in two if you can hit the fairway and hit a good 2nd shot. Get ready to be creative on several holes on the back 9. Fun course if you can score a deal on the greens fees. During the local vacation season it is extremely steep for local golf but if you can play it for $40 or less jump on it.

This is a excellent course. It has a great layout, the conditioning could not have been better, the greens rolled smooth, true, and were pretty fast. It is a first class layout with some, but not too many bunkers that had nice, fresh, soft sand in them. All in all, it was a great deal to play a quality layout.

On vacation in the area and had the opportunity to play the Hills Course twice.

The course is in excellent condition, the holes are both interseting and varied.

Look forward to returning again and playing the Lakes Course.

Have recommended the Course to two friends who plan to play it.

-myself and some buddies like to play Chautauqua a few times every year.

-we come from Toronto so it is a long drive but always like to make a day of playing Chautauqua.

-we usually play at least 27 holes but sometimes get in 36.

-Dennis and Troy in the pro-shop are always great with us and probably wonder, holy, here come the Canadians again as it is a good 3 hour drive with the border.

-the course has 2 18's, Lake and Hill, both are in great shape, rates are very reasonable and the pace of play has never been a problem which is another reason we like to go there.

-there is an eatery on site which does the trick and serves alcohol and non-alcohol beverages.

-we always hit Chef's in Buffalo on our way home but always look forward to the trek to Chautauqua and playing golf there, you will too, F.O.R.E

-sorry no pictures but will seek to take some next round.

The Chautauqa Hill Course is fun, the greens are

very fast and the course is a challenge because

the last nine holes that were built have some

"gimmick holes". In my opinion the course is

usually too expensive compared to the other

courses around. However, Golf Now made it

about 65% for Seniors. We were allowed to

go on the course 30 minutes early because

in October there is not a lot of play and only a

"single" caught up to our 4-some.

Course is in great shape. Only thing wrong is they need get rid of them Canadian geese because the holes they are on are full of s#%t. It's hard to walk anywhere on these holes without stepping in it and it's disgusting.
