Great round!

Beautiful day on a nice course. Bring plenty of golf balls because if you are not accurate, you will lose them on this course. As for golf shop, people want to grab and go when making the turn, so have hotdogs or sandwiches available as burgers don’t always work.

Excellent Course. A Challenging and Pleasant Experience.

The course is beautiful and moderately challenging. This course has three nine hole course, Deer Run, River view and Medowlands. We played the Deer Run and Riverview. Bermuda fairways and greens. Played with my friends here after a very long time. The course has been redone and is beautiful. Greens were a bit spongy but even then the speed was very fast. We had trouble holding greens if landed in the wrong spots. Everyone had at least one 3 putt bogey :-) We all scored higher numbers than our respective average scores. It was a hot day but fun golfing in the visually pleasing course.

New Favorite Course

I've played many courses around the area and this course by far is at the top of my list. If you slice the ball or below-average golfer this course may not be for you. Make sure you bring extra balls as the chance of you losing a couple of some holes are highly likely. The views and layout of this course are unlike any other!!

Great course

While I didn’t shoot a great round the course was great. Well maintained greens and fairways, friendly staff and nice clubhouse. Played 36 holes as the pace of play was very fast and we finished the first 18 in about 2.5 hours. Would definitely play this course again.

First Timer on Friday

Course is somewhat challenging; hilly with plenty of water. Groups were allowed to play as singles, pairs, whatever. I believe this hurt pace of play.

Course was in good shape.

We would play again.

Haven't been there for several years .. challenging but fun

Haven't been to Chapel Ridge for several years. Course was in good shape. Challenging round of golf.

Tons of "visual traps" ... were you think things are going to get in your way (sand trap/rocks/etc), but they are really your targets). Many greens have sand traps in front of the flags. Required a degree of discipline to not let it get into your head.

Great time!

The course was in great condition even during the dry season for the most part. A few fairways were a bit unforgiving to to the dry weather, but still in great shape. I would most certainly recommend!

Awesome course for great price!

Really enjoyed the course. Fairways and greens were in fantastic shape. The layout is challenging and the course has a lot of slope. Would love to come back for a replay as this was definitely worth the money.

Definitely Play Again

Course was in really good shape w/greens plush. Staff was great and pace fine for a weekday. Really a surprise gem with nice fairways and plenty of challenges. Wish the women’s was a little longer but had to be more strategic on club and shot placement so really fun day.

Challenging but Fun and Fair

Hadn't played RW in almost a year. We played Riverview/Meadowlands nines (they have 3).....greens are very good, fairways good, sand traps a little thin. I don't play here that often but it's the best condition I've seen here in 3 years. It will get back into my golf rotation this summer.
