I listed as first time playing this course because it’s been 10+ years since I played this course. I’ve heard they were bringing this course back to life after a few tough years. Let me start by saying that they are doing a fantastic job. This course is looking great. The greens were a little slower than I like but I can tell they are working hard to make the A+ green. They are about a B+ and roll smooth. The course is a beast and I can’t wait to get back out there soon to hopefully tame this wonderful beast. Also, the views are amazing, the staff is great, and the amenities are some of the best in our area. Thanks Mount Vintage for a wonderful day of Golf.

I recent played Mount Vintage Golf Club. I heard the course had some financial difficulties but after hearing the course was purchased by the local HOA who was in process of doing extensive renovations I thought it might be worth a visit. WOW - the course is back! The bent greens are awesome and the new bunkers are fantastic. If you haven't played the course in the last couple of months you should give it a try.

Greens were in pretty good condition as were the fairways. But the rough was terrible even rough parts in some fairways. Rough was 6-8 inches deep spent probably more than an hour just looking for balls when you could see exactly where they went . Won't play this course until they get the rough cut!!!

The course is in horrible shape. The rough looks like it has not been cut all year. The greens are horrible. Burnt with fairway grass growing on them. Bunkers were terrible with the liner coming through the packed sand. Can't believe they think someone should pay $65 for that. Whoever is in charge of taking care of this course should be fired. The local community course in Augusta is in better shape than this place. We will never go back to this course again and I encourage anyone wanting play golf for these green fee's should look elsewhere. It will be money just thrown away. Stay away from Mount Vintage.

This course should be one of the best in the state. However, with poorly maintained course conditions, no drinking water on the Chester course, and sand traps that are not manicured following a storm the day before, this course is a mix of a top tier experience and inexcusable actions for a budget course, let alone mount vintage plantation.

There is a difference between making the rough hard and being lazy and not cutting the rough. When weeds in the rough are around 10" tall, I would go with the latter. On the Chester course hole #8, staff decided not to cut a fairway.

I'm disappointed because this course should be the best in the area by far. But a sense of apathy seemed to resonate through the course yesterday that would make anyone think otherwise.

Not a value for money spent. Grass 1 foot off the green was mid calf high with weeds 2 feet tall. Grass off fairways the same. Fairway grass is dieing and very tight lies.

You can tell that this was once a truly great course. The layout is awesome and it is a true test to ones ability. The greens are still in very good condition and thay roll true. The bad is the dried out fairways and unkept rough and areas around. Worth playing just to see the layout and imagine what it once was or could be again if the right ownership took over.

Played the course twice before and it would compete with any country club. This round was ok. Price was right, the personnel were nice and club house was as I remembered. The course on the other hand was not "up to par". Overgrown would best describe the course condition. The tees were mowed and they seemed to try and save the greens. The rough was over grown. Thought was maybe a US Open flavor but soon turned into weeds that were 2 to 3 foot high. Some bunkers had more weeds than sand. Cart paths for the most part are in shambles. Too bad this place did not take off. I understand this place has has some troubles but if I was a resident or member or had a membership this would be embarrassing to bring anyone to play. Hopefully just enduring another 'rough patch' and things will pick up for the better soon. It was a hot day and water stations on the course was appreciated.

The greens were impeccable. Absolutely loved them! My complaint is the greens and fairways looked like they don't get mowed often. They are short and soft but with random 4 to 12 inch tall weeds. They aren't everywhere so it's like they just forgot to mow over the past couple weeks. The rough was even worse and again that's due to lack of maintenance. That is my only complaint. This course is every bit worth the money and with a little basic maintenance I would have given it 5 stars. If you are considering this course you can stop thinking and just play it. I am a picky player and that was my only complaint and the only reason I did is because I like to mention what I like and dislike about the courses I review. I will definitely play it again when in the area! Two thumbs up

Always wanted to play this course. Used to have LPGA event here. Apparently a new management team has just taken over and I expect the conditions will improve dramatically. The greens are in very good shape but the rough and fairways are like Scotland on a bad day. You can see the expensive rock work and a good bit of water. Can't wait to go back when it is fixed up. Great staff. Very friendly
