Last time I played here was 20 years ago the day after I shot my career round. Needless to say Challedon brought me back down to earth. Two decades later I was excited to find they'd improved the course in all facets.

Love the layout. For Winter and early season, the greens rolled true. I most certainly don’t want to be in the wrong section of some of those greens. Diabolical would be a word for some of those greens. The roll out is annoying, in a good golf kinda way. For us amateurs the course allowed us to get a little aggressive on some of the par 5s with a good drive. I reached two of them in 2. The demand to put the tee shots on some of the 4s in the right spot makes your concentration meter go up. 4, 5 & 6 you better be sharp or a big number is coming. Man you have to be really confident with that tee shot on 6.

Back side brings you home with chances to score, but if you relax, it's like a boa constrictor, each breath you take is closer to a large number Lol.

Had a great time, and yes I'm coming back to play. If you see me, don't gamble, it's not worth it for you. :)

My buddy and I played Challedon yesterday for the first time in a year or so. A previous experience was forgettable. But, this time, I could not give the club more praise. It looked fantastic driving through the neighborhood and did not disappoint up close. While the grass was generally dormant, the conditions were as good as I have seen in the area lately. The course layout is always great, but coupled with the current conditions and upgrades to the clubhouse and practice area, Challedon is now a hidden gem. It will be in the rotation for 2018! Nice work!

I've been going to challedon fpr a few years now and it never seems to dissapoint. Staff generally friendly and I always get a good deal on the internet. I go 25 miles to play here and worth it, everytime.

Some holes easy but some holes forces you to manage your play carefuly

I will probably go 2-3 times a month. I like to mix it up with other courses. But "The Links At The Calledon" is one of my favorite courses,

How can you complain when your green fees are $10 bucks. We usually pay $69 when we play in the AM. Overall nice course. Greens nice decent sand in the bunkers.

I've been playing Challedonnor for years -- what the ownership has done over the last couple of yeare is very impressive. The course conditions improve every week, the management and staff are super friendly, the prices (for golf and food) are afforable and it's a nice place to share a meal (or a few cold ones) with friends and family. The GM' and his staff work hard every day to make it easy to book your next tee time. Give it a try -- you won't regret it.
