I used to play here all the time. I lived nearby about 10 years ago and played Chi Chi’s at least once a week. Since moving further south, I haven’t had the chance to play. The greens are much better than I remember them being. Great job Chi Chi Staff!

I played on a rare cool blustery day but the course was very nice though not long at all. In tough weather conditions with mist and rain, the greens held up very well and we're surprisingly fast but true. Can't wait to get back there on a sunny day.

Used to play chi chi's fairly regularly, this was the best shape I've ever seen the course in. Really outstanding, greens were fast and true, the fairways were great and the tee boxes for the most part were really good. The only complaint about the course is the pace of play. The course is short, there are a few holes less then 300 yards, so every golfer in the world thinks they can make the green, so they wait. Then of course every one in the foursome duffs into the woods because they try to crush the 300 yard drive. This backs everything up! This was not a one time occurrence on this course as it happens almost every time I've played the course. But for $20, the course is in fantastic shape and it sure did beat working.

I've played here several times over the years, but my wife has played here only a couple of times. The course is in very good condition, and the staff is very friendly. The green fee was well-priced and the pace of play was excellent. All together, a splendid day. Highly recommend it.

First time playing the course. I was looking for something to do on a Sunday Afternoon, I was disappointed when I got there and saw the amenities. Although once you tee off on first hole it’s pretty nice. The greens were beat up by the many golfers that played that day. The course was overbooked and made it extremely unpleasant. We had 2 sometimes 3 foursomes on each tee box. I couldn’t complain for what I paid. It was well worth only getting in 15 holes. I would recommend playing there. Good bang for your buck

Not a long course but brings to bare all the skills of the game. Numerous sand bunkers require accurate approach and chip shots. Greens are a bit small, present numerous slopes but putt true...so enjoyable. Almost all greens feature bunkers in front center, which encourages high lofting chip shots, and rewards backspin. Fairways vary from tight to wide open and several require irons or shorter woods to hit your landing target. A very good learning course.

I've played this course before and I'll play it again. It's close and very convenient. They keep the course in fairly good shape and the staff is very good. This time of year is good because it's pre-snowbirds and the prices are great.

Even with all the rain we have had, the course was in good shape. The were some wet areas but that is to be expected. The staff at Chi Chi's is really great. They are always cheerful and make you feel that you are a valued customer.
