Always a great experience at this course.

The Chimneys is one of my favorites in the north GA area. The course is in great shape, with well-maintained tee boxes/fairways, reasonable rough and smooth, fair greens. Also a nice variety of holes/doglegs/elevation changes. Sand traps too were nicely filled with actual sand (not hardpan like many other courses in the area)! The greens were a little on the slow side, but that's a minor quibble compared to the overall experience.

Courses are manicured to perfection....but staff?

Can’t beat the price for the beautiful course. Like my title says, the courses are manicured to perfection. Perfect greens, well cut fairways, even the bunkers were raked and a over par regardless of covid. I will say though, the guy at the front was somewhat unpleasant. He suggested we’d only play 9 holes even though it was 4:30. He firmly stated that we would not finish. I told him, “don’t worry we play fast”, with a smile. He says, doesn’t matter if you play fast? Found that kind of... impertinent... regardless we finished by 7:30. Well before the closing time of 7:45 which he stated. Other than that, I highly recommend this course!

Wilderness Course

Very nicely landscaped course from tee to green. Love the fact that the course is isolated from residential development allowing you to be one with nature. Only little knock I have about the course is that the greens, although healthy looking, had a very slow pace. I'm sure once the hot weather breaks, the greens will firm up and provide better putting conditions.

Great Course

It took us to get there about an hour from Marietta, but it was worth.the driving.
The course is maintained so nice. The greens were a little slow, but we were advised. The fast greens make this course even better.

Cut the grass

Greens were high and ridiculously slow. I will say they were soft though. Second cut on fairways could definitely been a bit shorter.

Fantastic condition

The Chimneys course was in great condition. From tee box to green everything was plush and green. Sand traps were freshly raked too. The course was not crowded at all for our 1:26 tee time. Our twosome finished in less than. 3.5 hours.

We'll absolutely play here again soon.

Amazing Conditions, but Slow Greens

This was only the second time I have played The Chimneys. Last time I played was several years ago and I don’t remember the course conditions being so nice as they were today. The Tees, fairways and rough are in fantastic condition. I have played MANY, MANY more upscale, high dollar courses which did not have tee boxes, fairways and rough as nice. The quality of the conditions and the variety of holes make this a great value ($34).
The only drawback for me is that the greens were extremely slow. It looked as if the greens had not been cut in several days. They were shaggy and very slow. Other than the speed of the greens, I would say this is a fun, and awesome course to play with lots of variety. I would play much more often if I lived closer.
The stone work around the course, especially on the front nine, is beautiful. Lots of large rocks and stone work that make the hole layouts very pretty and appealing.
I highly recommend playing here.
