Night and Day Different

A friend and I played this course about a year ago and it was terrible. The greens were nothing but mud. They gave us a free 9 hole voucher and neither of us used it because it was not worth it. We thought about not going back, but the deal was so good we did. I am so glad we did. The course was drastically better. 9 of the 18 greens had been sanded but were still good, the other 9 greens (which were mud last time) were in very good shape. We both talked about this the whole time we played. I only live about 10 miles away and will definitely be going back. Course is a championship style course with tough layout but very fun to play. Loved it. Can not find a better deal somewhere else. I know they have had financial trouble in the past, but they are getting it back to the caliber it was when it first opened.

Excellent course

What an amazing transformation they’ve done to this course. The last several years it has just been in average condition. When I played today greens and fairways were in perfect condition, I highly recommend everyone to give this course a try.

This course has 3* 9 hole courses to pick from

Team up with some local resident members - had a great round with good company. Because the course has 3x 9 holes options the greens on the first 9 holes versus tyhe back 9 were slower.

Recommend any golfer to try this course out as it is very challenging with some long Par 5's

New Bermuda Greens

Chester nine was recently opened with new Bermuda greens. Enjoyed a wonderful putting surface. Independent nine greens were converted to Bermuda last year from the original bent grass. Eighteen great putting surfaces now available for the first time since 2014. Plentiful rainfall this summer has produced lush fairways. Best since 2005. Will definitely resume regular play here.

Not Good

I saw other bad reviews on this but decided to give it at try anyway. Should’ve listened to the reviews. Lots of weeds, lots of fungus, lots of dead patches. The course has so much potential....

New Chester greens are excellent

Played on the new Chester nine champion.g12 greens this morning. They were excellent especially considering this morning was the 1st day since they were sprigged earlier this summer. Now independent and Chester have new greens and by the end of summer they plan to have vintage re-done. If you have not played the new greens, head to mount vintage soon. The most scenic course in the area and really good rates on golf now.
