Beautiful Course

A bit of a drive but definitely worth it. The staff and pro shop were friendly and helpful. The course itself is in fantastic shape and the greens are a treat to putt on. The beverage cart came by 4 times in the round so no shortage of opportunity to get refreshments. This is a real gem for a public access course and a must play for all handicaps.

Chimney Oaks Golf Course

We found this hidden gem in Homer GA about 3 months ago and have returned multiple times.
The course is in excellent condition from tee to green. We love the "river sand" in the bunkers.
The greens are true, smooth and challenging.
The entire staff is extremely friendly and professional.

A gem of a course 30 minute drive from Braselton, GA

My dad and I loved the course. Championship Tiff Bermuda greens were perfect condition and were the perfect speed. The course layout is friendly off the tee and a lot of character to the holes. The staff from the starter to the cart girl to the waitress at the grill at the clubhouse were very friendly and made the experience that much more enjoyable. Will definitely be back!

Really nice course and good test for your game. Very well maintained in a beautiful setting! Good shots were rewarded, but green side bunkers are deep...had some of the best sand I’ve ever played. Putting was a little ruff, because the greens were aerated three weeks ago. Overall we had a great time and would come back to play when in the area!!

Conditions very Good

Played during Hot part of the day, hardly anyone on course. Love playing here but wish greens were a bit faster, they were recently aeriated. .Course is somewhat easy from white tees, may start playing from the blues on certain holes.. Be nice if they had water on course but understand with covid 19 I guess. Love the drive here ,27miles...

Always great

Even though greens were aerated one week ago, they were still very puttable. Love this course! Only suggestion would be that the groundskeepers be more aware of players and allow to play through .

Play it - will not be disappointed

Have play this course on and off since the Hammer's Glen glory days - is in good as shape as it has ever been - played courses in ATL that charge twice as much that do not come close to this facility (course, practice area & club house). Greens are firm, but roll true and are in great shape--river sand in sand traps , which takes some getting use to and are in decent shape in this "virus era" of golf. Well worth my 40 minute drive.

Great layout, fantastic greens!

Course was in great shape. Couldn't have asked for a better round. The green complexes make hitting greens a must. There greens themselves looked and rolled perfect.

Hot day

We play this course every and it keeps getting better, the word is getting out about this course and staff being one of the best in NE Ga, the only complaint today was someone in front of us was spitting sunflower seeds all over the course, tees and greens so when you have to putt thru them you have to sweep aside the seeds, please don`t do this its kind of nasty. Thanks to B Mc and his staff for a great time.

Great day with my son!

This place has stepped it up with the overall experience. Haven’t played here in about 7 years and I was blown away with the new clubhouse, practice area and service. When U raise above that 50 dollar price range u better have a little extra to offer and they do! Always a strong layout and now on par with many private clubs with the bells n whistles.
