Chautauqua Gem

Found the course on GolfNow, as a midpoint between Cleveland and Oakville. Hadn't played it before and we were pleasantly (very surprised) and happy. Sleepy little resort style community featuring this challenging 36-hole layout. Tree lined fairways, beautiful surroundings, small tough greens and the entire complex was in great shape. Well maintained and the green rolled fast and true! We played a bit of extra time as the cource was quiet and we'll definitely come back and use this as a destination. !

Great course in best shape I have ever seen it

Awesome day of golf, Both courses where in excellent shape, and I don't mean for a public course. They would presently rival most country clubs in the buffalo area right now. Great idea for a group of four even from the buffalo area to make the day drive to play these to hidden gem courses

Top two of three courses in Chautauqua County

Played the Hill course today and have played the lake course recently. These two courses along with Tri County near Forestville NY are in excellent condition. They are by far the best in the County.

Golfnow is losing ground

Got my t time from golf now and there are too many rules all of a sudden to be able to use my bonus points. However, love playing Chautauqua and couldn’t play there without a discount of some sot.

First time around

Picked the Lakes course, cause the Upper course at PKnPK was booked. Was pleasantly surprised because this course is one of the nicer courses for the area and would play again. Actually, plan on trying the Hills course. When on the Lakes course remember where the lake is cause thats where the break is...LOL!

Always well kept

If you can get on this course for $35 (with a cart) it’s a good deal. In the resort season whennrates are more than that check out some other local courses. Off-season conditions are great and you’ll save yourself $10-$15

Made my top 10

It was a little wet when we played the lake course from the blues. Every hole has a challenge. Lined with mature trees, escape from errant shots is difficult.

Surprising where grass bunkers with 90° front faces that were very high. But the greens were magnificent. Great roll and undulating. A missed read can funnel you yards from your objective. I am glad they were soft when I played, they must be racetracks on drier days.

You could not ask for a better 18 / 36 for a golf outing.

I have always come to Chatauqua for the fishing, but now I have 2 great choices.

Great Day for Golf.

Scheduled to play the Lake Course, but it was backed up with many foursomes. The starter offered a solution, "The Hill Course is open, greens were punched 3-4 days ago, good shape, and hardly anyone in front of you." I took his advice, the greens were not perfect, but very doable. The lay-out of the course is enjoyable, some really fun holes, and very scenic. Played from the white tees, reachable par four's in regulation, and challenging par three's. Can't wait to come back in a week or two when the colors are even more vibrant. Golf Now app(VIP Member) provided me with an excellent price for this 3 1/2 hour round.
