The Tattersall Youth Development Center at The First Tee Chesterfield Golf Course, as well as the First Tee of Richmond, was established to provide educational golf programs for junior players. This comprehensive learning facility includes an 18-hole golf course, a three-hole practice loop, a large grass practice tee, a putting green, and a short-game practice area. There's also a staff of qualified coaches and golf instructors that can help you improve your score no matter what your weakness is. As a learning course, it might not be what low handicappers are looking for if they want a challenge, but it's a perfect place for beginners and high handicappers to get some practice with the game. The layout is very forgiving with wide-open fairways that offer plenty of room. The greens are fast and sometimes framed with bunkers. There are several par-3 holes that will give you a chance to work on your short game.

Went to play this course while visiting my son. He hadn't played in over year so wanted to go somewhere where he could enjoy himself. This course has an abundance of par 3s and the par 5s are actually just long par 4s. Fairly easy course as it is a teaching facility. Greens are exceptionally fast and don't hold very well. Was disappointed that there is no alcohol on premises as it caters to minors. Fun outing for players who are timid about playing with experienced players. If you're looking for a challenge wouldn't choose this course, but a nice experience all the same.

Got stuck behind 2 groups of walkers that werent letting us play through, was told to wait 40 mins before starting. the play speed was slow until they got out the way guessing they were on a shotgun play. The greens were way too fast putter head only moved about 4 inches and the ball went 10 feet.

We're sorry you didn't have a great experience at our course. It appears you played on a Wednesday, which is our Senior League day, which probably explains the wait. We strive to get players on the course as soon as possible after the league, and we apologize if we got it wrong this time. We hope you'll give us another chance to earn your business and show you a great golf experience!

I really enjoyed playing this course a lot and had a lot of fun doing it. The greens were fun to putt on and a bit challenging for a beginner like myself. My only problem with this course was the staff friendliness. One of the staff members was really awesome and even let me play a few extra holes after the designated "cart return time" and i really appreciated that. However upon walking into the pro shop the man behind the desk was deep in conversation with somebody and did not even acknowledge me, After about five minutes of standing around and browsing I just stood and waited, finally he decided to ask if needed anything and I said " yes id like to play 18 holes and warm up with a bag." He started doing his thing and then i asked "Do you have any discounts for military or veterans?" The mans response made me quite angry for he had such a bad attitude that i would even ask about a discount on twilight hours. he shook his head in disgust and after that question treated me like a complete and total moron, not being able to hide his need to get back to conversing with the man standing behind me at the counter. Further more upon finishing my warm up and heading to the starter shack, the starter was quite rude and had a cigarette blazing as i was trying to talk to her. She seemed angry I was trying to play 18 holes at 5:00pm and proceeded to have a bad attitude about where the first tee was.

I really liked this course, it was super pretty, warm up areas are on point, greens roll nice, and tee boxes are in good shape. my only problem is the staff. Seriously just lighten up a bit, and be nicer to your customers. I would rate this Five stars if they treated patrons with genuine courtesy and respect.

I've been to First Tee of Chesterfield several times, and my experience has been pretty similar each time. The course has a good layout, and tee boxes and fairways are well kept. But greens leave a lot to be desired as people don't fix their ball marks, so there are pockmarks all along the green. Also, its possible to get stuck being extremely slow golfers who won't allow you to play through, so be prepared to skip a hole or two if you like to keep up pace of play. Other than this, staff are very friendly, course is fun, and the price makes it all worth your while.

Course not in the greatest shape. Bunker rough terrible shape. Greens fair, but extremely wet and slow, despite minimal rain over last few days. Over watering? Young staff in clubhouse very professional and helpful. Rates steep for overall experience. Was disappointed when I was informed GolfNow rate was actually more than twilight rate. The gave me the twilight rate, but only after GolfNow collected their fee.

The First Tee at Chesterfield is a perfect course for transitioning from par 3 to a regular 18 hole golf course. This course is in excellent condition! All 18 greens were in nearly perfect condition (just some ball marks) play fast and are consistent. The tees are also in extremely good condition as well as the fairways. This well maintained course is also fun to play as well. I will definitely be coming back in the near future.

I have played this course dozens of times over the past 5 years. This<br/> course will give you all the challenge you need if you're an intermediate golfer. Plus, you can get a challenging game on a course that doesn't take 5 hours to play.<br/> Especially noteworthy is the staff; they're friendly, courteous and always willing to go the extra mile to help.<br/> Paul Seargent and Keith Jarrell, the PGA pros are personable, knowledgeable and, as importantly, have a genuine interest in their students enjoyment of the game<br/> A country club this isn't. As a great place to play a quick round this can't be beat

The course was busy the Friday after New Years with the weather being decent and many people off work for the day. Every hole had someone on it but pace of play wasn't too bad at all. We finished in about 3.5 hours. The course was in good shape considering it has been a cold start to winter. Fun shorter course. Good for beginners and those wanting to practice their short game. Only need your driver a couple times so on a colder day that was nice. I will play here again.

I play this course a few times a year. Relatively short compared to most courses in the area. But it is a First Tee complex that is designed to promote golf for the youth. Great practice area, and the course is challenging enough. If you're a long hitter it's still fun to play. Great for working on your short game and approach shots.
