Fair

Back 9 fairways better shape than front 9.
Greens were all very good. I would say it’s a little more than average difficulty. I ply Chateau Elan a lot and this course is more difficult.

Nice course! But Gentlemen please--repair your ballmarks!

I liked this course. The chimney theme is a nice idea and they've done some great stonework throughout the course. Fairways are in really good shape. The greens are some of the slowest I've encountered and we really had a hard time finding the right speed. My big beef, and this concerns the greens, is the lack of self-maintenance at The Chimneys. That is not a knock on the course, but the people who play it. I can't remember the last time I saw so many unrepaired golfmarks on the greens. Simply ridiculous. My son and I ended up repairing 5 marks to our 1 - usually do that to an extent anyway. It's a lack of respect for the game and the people that play behind you. Like leaving your trash at a campsite. Pack it out! A very frustrating sign of the times. I don't know whether signs asking people to do what they should ordinarily do anyway would be of any help. Other than that, a really nice course.

Great round!

Course is fun, wide open fairways, decent bunkers. Design is nice but I don’t like the one par 5 and one par 3 on the back set up. Wish they had a cart person on the course on a hot Sunday. No trash cans at every hole was rather strange and they only have one portapotty for restrooms on the entire 18 holes.

Sweet track!

I’ve played here many times but today was the best I’ve ever seen this course. Everything was freshly manicured. I wished the greens were little faster. Staff was friendly as always.

Nice soft green

The course is in nice shape. Greens look good they are soft and hold the ball. But they are a little slower then other local greens.. I always like playing there even saw a deer on the course today. Nice layout pretty straight forward but need a few long drives . And a couple reachable pat 4s for the long ballers. Go play it

Best course in the area

Great course from tee box to green. I love everything about it. The back 9 is very getable if you can keep it straight. Best course in the area and I don’t think it’s close.

a Keeper

First time playing the course. I will certainly be back. fairways were in great shape, though I found it curious there was no sand on the cart to repair divots. Tee boxes were in very good shape. I had seen the other reviews prior to booking this round, and was still pleasantly surprised. I wish the greens were a bit firmer and faster, but that is a bit picky. My playing partner and I were both of the opinion that this course presents one of the best values in the area.

Great Course... worth the drive.

Overall I had a great experience at The Chimneys course in Winder. I had a single booking and they paired me up with another single which was great.
The course was in great condition, it’s very scenic, well laid out and challenging. The staff were super friendly and the driving range to loosen up before hand was an added bonus.

All in all I would rate this course as great value for money and will definitely visit again in the near future.
