Great Value

We booked our tee time thru TeeOff because this website has NO Booking fees.
The course was in great condition, picturesque and somewhat challenging.
We will play here again, soon!

This is the 1st time I've played here in a few years. I thought things may have improved under the Golf Visions flag but I was wrong. The course is as run down and poorly maintained as it was before. The fairways are full of weeds and bare spots, with twigs and branches laying all over the fairways. A few of the greens had dead areas too. How about you put some money into fixing the place up and then budget some weekly maintenance? Even at $32 this is overpriced for the conditions. It's a shame because it could be a really nice course.

Yea it’s not pristine like a country club, but for $32 I can’t imagine why you would ask for much more. Overall I thought it was in decent shape considering the hot summer we just had.

Tough course, but nice

I have played here many times but this is the first time I really realized how hard this course was. Very tight Fairways with target landing spots. Greens were fast but rolled true. Overall you need to bring your A game to enjoy this course.

Looking for some fun

Pace of play was slow, no rangers on the course, the first time we saw a beverage cart was when we were on the 18th tee box, greens were fast.

Chalet Hills

Amazing course for the value. The layout was fantastic and the course challenging and humbling. Definitely will return.

One and only frustration was watering of many greens ahead of us. We went out early, 6:30am tee time. Conditions have been extremely dry and I understand the need to water. However, there were about half a dozen holes where we had to wait to hit into the green so the grounds crew could turn the sprinklers off. Those Greens were extremely wet and left in no condition to be able to put on.

That said—-the course is amazing. Will definitely return many times. Will make you a better golfer for sure.

Our round of 18 holes was 5 1/2 hours. Difficult course, narrow fairways, Pro-shop wasn't very friendly, ranger said "this is a 4 1/2 hour course". Too difficult for avg players.

Course Maintenance

During Covid, rakes are removed from the bunkers. It was a wonderful addition to have one of the maintenance crew driving around raking the bunkers...have not seen any course this summer provide that amenity. We are also in a bad drought...nice to see some moist tee boxes and fairways from earlier watering of the course.

Pleasant Course

I have played this course many times over the years and Im glad to see that they have kept up the course for a nice challenging round of golf , The pace of play could be better but iots a hard course and people hit OB so there are just too many people searching for their balls in the trees and rough., I have to say I havent seen a ranger out there the past 3 or 4 times to speed things up. Maybe up the effort to push people along other than that I really like playing here.

Slower than average play for Friday Morning

Nice layout. Could water less and spend the money saved on improving the condition of the greens. 75% of the greens were dried out and seemed diseased. Played slow and never saw a course ranger.

Just wondering, was it wet or dry...you mentioned both.?.? And, are you a superintendent of grounds somewhere? Not many people know how to identify diseased greens. But we appreciate you telling the world you think so.

Super wet, but good deal

Played early morning and the course was super wet. Puddles around all sprinkler heads or low spots in the course. Felt like I was playing during a rain storm. Slow playing, even early morning. I think due to some tight holes with blind shots over hills. Even in the fairway, not sure which hill you went over. Might benefit by switching to 10 minute tee times instead of 8 minutes.
