Getting there ...

Played here a few months back and was so disgusted with the greens I swore I’d never come back, which is a shame since I love the layout. Read a recent review that said that issue had been resolved so ... we gave it a chance. Greens are significantly better and hopefully, are on the mend for good. Wet conditions so cart path only which made for a long Sunday but all in all when spring comes around Chapel Ridge will be in our heavy rotation!

Good Shape

I had avoided this course in Fall 2019 because I read it had lost many greens. I decided to give it a try yesterday during an unusually warm January afternoon and played the front nine (so this review is based on the front nine only). The greens and the rest of the course were in fine shape. They have fixed their greens Most traps were also in good shape - just a couple had some water drainage problems - but we have had a lot of rain over the prior 3-4 days. Overall the course was great and it is a fun place to play with an interesting and challenging layout..

My nearby favorite

Third time playing here and will return often. Great value, good challenge, varied levels of difficulty among the 18 holes. Sand traps rough and rocky...only reason for not 5 stars.

Great layout, fun to play

Chapel Ridge has always been a very playable for all calibers of players. A very picturesque course with rolling hills, subtle doglegs, and variety of shots needed on each hole. Uphill and downhill shots, and tough approach shots to score well. Quality of fairways is much better in recent years. I do wish they would transition to bermuda greens as bent greens have always been touch and go , some years in good shape, others not so much. Course crews are doing a great job in last few years mowing , cutting fairways, rough and around the greens to make it more visually appealing which is nice.

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.
