Fun golf at its finest
If you want a pristine golf course go join one of the expensive country clubs. If you really want to have fun do yourself a favor and go play Challedon. The course is in nice shape. The layout is fun and the staff is helpful and friendly. The course is challenging for all skill levels and the pace of play is better than most courses in the area.
Appreciate the kind words. We too think it’s a really fun track, and the Team is working hard to make sure you have a good time!
Good course but they overbooked and inserted a group of walkers in front of us. Greens and tee boxes were in excellent condition minus a few holes. The entire round took over five hours, will probably go back and play again.
Really sorry, must have been something odd, we purposely keep 10 minute intervals to insure good pace of play.
Contact me and your next round for 4 will be 1/2 price.
Great course in great shape!
The greens , the greens, the greens...
I shot a 73 with a triple bogey on the first hole and I owe it all to the true roll of the greens.
The course was in great shape and the greens were a touch slow, but rolled straight and even.
Thanks for the feedback, the Team has been work hard to keep everything in shape. Greens will be cut lower as the heat backs off, then faster and true!
Overall - very pleased
The course itself was in pretty great condition and i was amazed by the pace of play (we were third ones off in the morning, in a twosome each with individual carts) and finished in 2 hours and 45 minutes. This was not my usual experience at Challedon, where a 5 hour round was much more the norm. I got the sense they were only sending out twosomes in order to preserve carts during the pandemic.
The course had been doused with fertilizer so there was a pervasive smell throughout the round and the greens were sandy and left an aquamarine residue on the ball from the fertilizer. I'm guessing they don't do that everyday so I just got unlucky with the day I chose to play, but it still did take away from the experience.
$8 for a small bucket of warm up balls was excessive and added to the cost of an already pricey round.
All in all, I'd go back again, particularly if I can get out early and make sure the pace of play is fast.
Appreciate the feedback. We are doing all we can to keep the Course in great shape, keep pace up, and continue to provide a safe great experience.
Thanks for coming out!
Deceiving GM and Owner
Beware, the owner and GM post positive reviews with regularity. They also encourage their employees to also post positive, glowing reviews.
Example: ownership pushes the crab cakes weekly in their reviews.
Greens are super slow May-October,silver weeds on most of tee boxes that are a mix of bentgrass and zoysia.
This golf course is average and over priced. Once the Covid-19 days are behind us, they will be dropping their green fees $10-$15 to where they belong.
Maybe all golf course personnel behave this way regarding reviews. But please know that this group at Challedon does in fact toot their own horn to build their positivity rating.
Beware, Fake News.
We are, taking constructive feedback seriously, encouraging all to fairly and constructively review us, and we are, commenting on all reviews.......cause we want to offer the best experience/value we can.
Sad, this, is not constructive.
appreciate you coming out, and the feedback, please come back!
The Links at Challedon, is no Links Course, but sure lays out like one! No parallel fairways, no guys hitting into you, and it’s in great shape!
Fun, fair, good pace and staff.
One of my go to Courses, highly recommend. Gets better and better!
Played the course the other day for the first time and thought it was great, also the food after the round was good
Hey! Thanks for coming out and for the review!!!
Please come back soon!
Very Poor Shape, Stay Away
I played this course on 8/8. This course is in horrible shape. The greens are nearly unputtable due to poor aeration fill, ballmarks and weeds growing on the greens. These are the slowest and worst greens in the area. There are weeds growing in the fairways and fringe. They are also not taking COVID seriously as there are no noodles in the holes and there are still rakes on the course.
Do yourself a favor and play somewhere else. Every public MC golf course that I have played recently puts this course to shame. For example, I played Little Bennett today and it the fairways and greens were 1000% better than Challedon. Consider any reviews talking about how good a shape this course is in as fake news. They need to drop their rates and hire a new greenskeeper.
You certainly are an expert at “fake news” sph......feel free to stay away.
All other, visit, please, if you agree with sph”, the Round is on us.
Thanks Pal. Play elsewhere.
Fun round, fun experience!
Hadn’t played Challedon for a year or so, and really saw a great upgrade. Course was in great shape, people friendly, pace great, and food after was awesome!!
Will be back. Excellent value.
Love This Course
Have been playing Challedon for years. The service is top-notch and the course is always in good shape. I would recommend this course to anyone.
Beautiful!! Appreciate the feedback and years of support!!
Great place to golf and dine!
I played with my family yesterday and was very happy with my experience at Challedon. I'm relatively new to the game but felt very confident on most holes. The staff was very friendly and the patio is a lovely place to relax and eat after your round. I highly recommend you visit!
Love seeing the families!! We have a great Camp and After School Golf Program.
Appreciate the support!
Awesome Course, Awesome Time!!
The course is in the best condition I’ve ever seen it in!! The staff is super helpful and friendly, and the crab cakes are definitely the best in Mount Airy!!!! Highly recommend visiting Challedon!
Thanks to Sam, Ryan, and a Great Turf Team that works their butts off!!!!!
Course does look great!!
First time playing Challedon on Sunday. The greens looked great and rolled consistently. The fairways were very nice considering how hot it has been, very few thin areas. The staff was very friendly for the entire time I was at the course. Will definitely be returning to Challedon in the future!
Welcome!!! Great to see all the new golfers finding us!
Please bring your friends!
Beautiful! Glad you found us and enjoyed the Course!!
Please come back and bring your friends!
Uncut fairways, horrible tee boxes, bumpy greens, diseased grass. All around the worst shape I've seen any course in all year. My group was in absolute shock to see how they've let the course go. DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY!!!
As an avid golf player and frequent player of the course I am flabbergasted by this review. Your “group” and you must be thinking of another course due to the fact The Links at Challedon is in no such condition complete opposite if I might add. I’m rattled by what has entered your tiny brain and I strongly suggest that you go think long and hard about that response. Honestly has it not barely rained over the past month with constant day in and day out 90 degree heat and they have people dragging around hoses to keep the course going. That called commitment and care for the course. Maybe you really should stop playing the game of golf and get a new hobby to do with your “group” -Buster B.
Wow, first time we’ve got this feedback.......all I can say is, come out and play, if you agree with this review, your round is on us......I played it today, is in great shape!
Not perfect everywhere, but see our reviews below!
We’re not perfect, but most everyone recognizes a well kept Course when they see one!!
EXCELLENT CONDITION BEST SHAPE OF ANY GOLF COURSE PLAYED THIS YEAR.
Really appreciate the kind words. The Team is working hard to give you the best golf experience we can!
