Nice course, not too difficult

Booked at 10:05 for an 11:57 tee time. Got pushed out early when we got there by the starter, instead of making us wait, which was nice.

We were behind a couple that was walking, in front a two-some that was older/walking, and it played at a very good pace. We were able to get some practice swings in (not sure if it was allowed but the pace was so good that got them in).

The course itself is not too challenging. We only played the Front 9, which is the longer 9. Only real challenge (two 25+ handicaps) was 6th because of the tighter fairway that was flanked by a water hazard. Easier if on the fairways but not impossible from the rough, which is very tame when compared to Triggs or Olde Scotland Links. The greens were all green and rolled just right; not too fast not too slow. You do have to deal with some level changes but it was not too bad for high handicaps. Would not know about the bunkers because I managed to stay out of them.

The course was in very good shape. Again, have only played at 7 courses but this was easily the best maintained.

Only negative was that we almost got hit by a couple of shots from people playing behind us. Wife almost got hit by two drives and I almost got hit by a drive. Would not care much but did not even hear a "FOORRREEEE".

Will likely consider this the home course.

Just a Delight

That a public course is in such great shape and has been so for such a long and consistent time is a tribute to its owners...just counting the number of pieces of equipement alone at the storage area will impress, then, add in they are doing things like using blowers to clear leaves, vacuums as well...as they prepare for the coming off season, it was the first time we had to deal with a fairway being aerated...should have grabbed some of the plugs for my back yards bare spots...do check in...wont be disappointed....

Golf courses don't have to be 7000 yards to be a challenge

Great short eighteen hole golf course. The course was in great shape and very well landscape. They only negative was the pace of play was extremely slow on the back nine

Great Value

The course offers great deals to play on Monday morning! It is in great shape as compared to other public courses. Some fairways are tight so one has to be straight. Greens roll well and are well maintain and ball marks are well policed. This is my local(5 minutes) course and I play about once a week. I avoid weekends as the course traffic gets slow.

Great location and easy to get to. Staff was friendly and helpful in particular the starter.Being first time players their he explained the layout to us which was helpful. Nice layout with challenging narrow fairways and elevated Greens. Great tee to Green condition. Extremely well maintained and nice scenery . Shot my best 18 hole round ever. 74. I'll be back soon.

Great value. Pace of Play is an Issue

I had a lot of fun at Chimewa. Somewhat unorganized on first tee, who goes next etc. two group backup on 2nd tee. 2 and a half hour front nine. Did get better on back 9. Course was in very nice shape. many holes close together so you are sometimes in danger of being hit by stray golf balls. (play a colored ball to better identify your ball). Great value but I wish they would do something about pace of play. Was my first time there but others say it is an issue on weekends.

Check the LEAGUE play before you book/Play

Great course...awesome shape...always see groundsmen working on something ...

Greens are full of nuance breaks at the last minute...would be nice to see a true roll on a good read without it breaking 3 feet away at the 6 interval(9th hole for one)...

Some pin placements do need to be checked vs the PGA guidelines(pins on hill CRESTS???)

Great place and will continue to play...have master the blaster to putt...LOL

Nicest starter ever

I was playing as a single and the starter checked different holes to see if he could get me out sooner. Course in great condition. Course layout dangerous at times but I still enjoy playing here and would recommend it.

NOT A DIVOT TO BE SEEN

The greens were hard as a rock...put up a 46 degree wedge on the part 3 16th hole, dropping it 6 feet left of the pin, and it BOUNCE UP about 3 feet...when looking for the divot, could not find one...

With the pin placements, and these rock hard conditions, it makes putting difficult to say the least...do wonder if perhaps they should look at the rule book about placing pins on the crest of greens humps...hole 17 and 6 come to mind...

Once the greens soften, this will be a good course again, for now, be ready to watch your perfect paced putt, that goes 3 feet north of the hole , turn slowly and accelerate 6 past the hole due to the conditions...

Give it a couple of weeks to get some grass growing...say Mid MAY
