This was my first time playing here. I walked in the pro shop about 20 minutes before my tee time and they were expecting me. Which was nice. Got in and out to see Sam the starter, nice guy. Practiced on the putting green for a few minutes and then I was off. Course was in nice shape considering the 95 degree temp. My only complaints would be the is no cart girl out on the course during the week, only weekends. And the greens needed to be rolled. I could see the were being watered which made them a little slow, but I’d rather have green grass than a burnt patch of what used to be grass. Pace was good, again considering the temp of the day. All in all it was worth the price I paid and the conditions I had. Would recommend. I will be back!

Played yesterday in hot but bearable weather. The course was in nice shape The fairways had good amount of grass and were hard but not baked. Greens were in good shape, putts ran true and approach shots held. Sand traps all had good sand in them and had been raked at the start of the day. The tee areas all had a good amount of grass on them although some were pretty hard to put a tee in. Staff at the pro shop were friendly and helpful. All in all a real enjoyable golf experience. This course offers a good value for the money.

Wow. I had played Chapel Ridge in the past, but was away from golf for over a year due to some medical issues. The course was gorgeous. The new management seems to be doing a great job on the upkeep. Really just as good as UNC Finley and more reasonably priced, especially with online specials, twilight specials, or senior/junior rates. (Be sure to check these over the phone before booking an on-line special if there are juniors or seniors in your group.) Staff was friendly. Then there is the course itself. I have developed as a golfer, received more instruction, and studied course management, and I really appreciate the layout at Chapel Ridge. It’s like two courses in one. It’s fairly straightforward for a recreational golfer to play it safe and strive for bogies, but if you want to be aggressive towards the pins to get pars and birdies the risk and required skill rise proportionately. A great course that caters to every level of player. I would probably give it four and a half stars if that were an option.

I have two reasons for not giving it five stars. Firstly, it is not a very walkable course as there are long distances between some of the holes. This doesn’t matter to me now, but during cooler months in good weather I like to walk. Secondly, there were some fire ants at the edge of one of the bunkers and a few got on the grip of one of my wedges that I had laid down. Fortunately I noticed before I put it back in my bag and got them off. I mentioned this to a groundskeeper we saw on the course and at the pro shop. I know golf is an outdoor sport, but hopefully the management is working to take of this. This is a minor issue once one is aware of the possibility, so Chapel Ridge will likely become my “go-to” course when I want to ride a cart for a round. Keep up the good work!

The customer service and care was excellent, treated me as a special guest. I was a single wedged in between two foursomes. The stater was asked to move the first group to start on ten so I would have a clear field ahead with less waiting time. Around the fifth pace of play really slowed down, the group ahead was playing on a five hour schedule, had to skip a hole to get around them and resume my play. They even lent me a golf club I was missing. The staff knows how to accommodate players and anticipate their needs. Course was in very good condition.

I enjoy playing this golf course, the layout is enjoyable for golfers of all abilities. Their tee placement is on point and reasonable, although I the white tees did seem to be a little further up than they should have been on some holes but like i said, it still presented a reasonable challenge from those tees. The greens were plush and receptive, no bare spots or crab grass, but they were slow. The fairways are in as equally good condition and the bunkers were well tended to. Some of the course maintensive staff were indifferent to our existence but the people inside the golf shop and at the snack bar were an absolute pleasure to be around. Hank in the golf shop in particular was a stand out in my experience at Chapel Ridge. We ate lunch there, the onion rings were fantastic. Would definitely recommend. Only issue was that they didn’t have a starter at the first hole so we had a bunch of groups teeing off one after the other and it was an absolute terror by the time we got to the back nine. They aren’t sticklers about pairing you up with people which is nice but they definitely need a starter and a marshal to keep everyone spaced out. I didn’t see one the entire time I was out there. Definitely an enjoyable course and I will be returning, hopefully to faster greens and a more consistent tempo of play.

Course is the best shape in several years. Couple of fairways a little thin but overall 8+ on a 1-10 scale. Greens are near perfect but are a little slow. Not many ball marks when I checked the course out last week but at the end of the day when I played they were already showing signs of slack golfers not fixing their ball marks.Hope greens make it through the hot days to come and increased play. Watched a patron drive all over hole #8, a par 3, cart path only like most par 3's but you have winners everywhere you go. They just don't understand they mess it up for everyone else. Probably my favorite course in the area, great layout. In great shape now give it a play. You won't be disappointed.

This is fast becoming my favorite course in the RTP area.

The fairways were plush, the greens a bit on the slow side (bent grass), but very true & consistent

We played the blues and and the layout is challenging but fair.

With constant GolfNow deals, this is the best bang for your buck around.

Course conditions were great. Thought the price was fair for an 18 hole twilight deal. Course can be challenging with the number of sand traps/protected greens/dog legs, depending on what tee box we play from. Thought the guy (I think the golf pro) was somewhat rude in the pro shop where you pay for your round and the young man taking the carts at the end of the night was extremely rude. Would still play again due to enjoying the course. Driving range was great. Course also has a nice practice putting green but no chipping green for practice.

This is your typical modern inland course. Fast, sloping greens roll true, a big plus. Employees are a little scarce--the starter just disappeared at one point for 20 minutes or so, and golfers piled up behind a slow group at the turn, with no ranger around to encourage faster play. I waited almost 20 minutes to tee off on the 11th tee and considered walking off at that point--definitely the low point of the round. Pace improved just enough after that so as not to spoil the round. Maybe this is just a course to avoid on weekends.
