Greens are being repaired - wait a while until they are fixed

The course staff are great and the layout nice, but right now, most greens were overtaken by weeds so they had to kill the weeks leaving much fo the greens a barren dirt. They are having a tough time right now so lets hope they can get the greens back in shape.

Don’t play this year

The overall conditions of the tea boxes, fairways and rough or decent. Anything on and near the green was absolutely horrible. They have completely lost 80% of their greens. I found myself putting over mud more often then grass. They still felt comfortable charging me $45 for the round regardless of the conditions. When you talk to them, do not believe what they say about minor work being done on the colors of the green. It is seriously terrible. Maybe they will get their greens back in a year or two.

Stay away (at least for awhile)...

I live about 50 minutes away and I paid $35 sr. rate at a course I generally love traveling to and playing. That price was about $30 too much! Greens are in horrible shape as it's truly hit and hope putting. Some greens are aerated, others have been painted, others have tire marks running thru them. All have bare spots and are "muddy". The collars have been re-sodded in places so around those areas are marked GUR. I know the course will get better and it's just a rough patch right now but I cannot recommend someone play there in the near future. At the very least they should lower their greens fees because of all the problems...

What is going on Chapel Ridge? Used to be in great shape until recently.

Fairways and tee boxes are almost pristine, but many of the bunkers have grass starting to grow in them (in the middle of the bunkers even), and the greens, which are normally top notch, have had a very hard summer. Goose grass and crabgrass have run rampant, and it affects the putts. There are several greens that have tire tracks on them, and the ball marks are beyond ridiculous. because the greens are so soft, and with bent grass, that's a recipe for disaster. The collars are nearly dead or overrun by crabgrass. I played here in May, and the greens were perfect. What is going on??

Love the layout

Tee boxes and fairways were perfect. Some of the greens had some weeds but all in all not too bad. The fringes were pretty rough but it did seems to make a difference. Will play there again. Love the course.

Members Treatment of Non-Members.

I was appalled that 2 member's from this course totally abused my 4 some verbally. We asked the 2 some to play through after they heckled us on the 4th fairway. We asked them to play through, they said no. We may not be the best golfers but I could not believe these two women treated us us on this course. We asked these two women 3 times for them to play through. They said no. On the 17th hole they drove up to us and cursed us out and told one of my guys you have no business being on a golf course. Both women cursed us out and flipped us the bird. It was just a sad pathetic mess. This was really just unbelievable,e experience. I will sadly not play there again due to how these two members treated us.

Course is in the worst shape I have seen it.

The fairway and tee boxes and fairways were in fair shape. The greens were in horrible shape, lots of Poana grass on greens. Previous golfers who play ahead of us we’re not fixing divots on the greens. Poana grass was so tall you had to move your ball around on the greens in order to putt. Would not ever go back, there are a lot better courses out there for the same money.

Greens at Risk

Really like the layout and the tee box options. Tees and fairways in good shape but the greens are at risk. They are being overrun with some type of Bermuda grass.

Crabgrass greens

Too bad as usually love this course. Greens getting almost unplayable due to crabgrass and bare spots. Bunkers not being maintained. Going to have to go elsewhere until greens and bunkers restored.

Don't waste your money

The greens at Chapel Ridge are bentgrass, and pathetic. $65 for a round with no input from the staff as to green conditions is very poor customer service. I will never play here again.

Oh the slowness

51/4 hr round, no thank you. No rangers in sight. Conditions not very good, summer has not been kind. Crab grass growing on all fringes and now in to the greens. Too bad because it is a nice layout. But too far a drive for the conditions and speed of play. It was 8 hours in total with commute. Ugh.

Great course and layout but the greens are in poor shape (fuzzy and Johnson grass). Bermuda is sparse on fairways. Superintendent either is new or hasn’t figured it out this season. Love the course

Excellent Routing, Greens Need Work

The routing and variety of holes is very good. Its always an interesting course to play. FW and Tees were in good shape. Bunkers and greens needed work. Greens and fringes were stressed, and had crab grass and some bare spots.

Greens

Course was beautiful however the Greens were plagued with crab grass, spike marks, divots that weren't fixed or fixed properly and one green had a huge cut in the green making putting a nightmare because a true to was impossible.
