About

Holes 18
Type Public/Municipal
Par 69
Length 5454 yards
Slope 121
Rating 66.4

The Chi Chi Rodriguez Golf Club, centrally located on McMullen Booth Road a comparably short course, offering just 5,454 yards from the blue tees and a slope rating of 118. Most of the fairways are wide, making errant shots still playable. In essence, it is the ideal place to work on your golf game, to correct that nasty slice or learn to hit that oversized driver without fear of losing 100 balls. As a result, it is a favorite among novice golfers who want to be challenged but also have an enjoyable round.

Closed Fairways

Right now there are 2 closed fairways that are roped off and no carts. You have to walk with your clubs or keep going back to the cart. In the Florida heat it is no fun. I have played the course twice since it was corded off but no more until the full course is open to carts. If you do not like hot dogs do not even think of eating anything. I will play again this Spring, maybe the course will be back to normal.

A Fun Afternoon

Chi Chi's is always in good shape and the staff is very friendly. They act like they are glad to see you. It was a hot day and we came upon a foursome on the 5th hole and they let us play through. We were a twosome. Chi Chi is challenging and it is a great place to test your short game.

Perfect little course

The course is short but just challenging enough to feel long. I will definitely be going back.
I dont know about $40 per round but the GolfNow $25.00 is worth the money

Short.

Many will avoid this course as the yardage is only 5K. But it is not an executive course. I played it like one, using the upper tees so I could play with my wife and father in law.
The course can be very tough - sand bunkers everywhere, rolling fairways - not the usual flat terrain of Florida. FAST greens, in very good condition.
I would play it again, probably from the white tees.

Short but challenging

Super friendly staff. Course is in good shape. Greens are fast. The course is not significantly long but presents enough challenges to keep the round interesting.
