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.

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.

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

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.

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

The Hot Deal price of $20 made this round a great value. The course was in excellent condition with ground crew working to pick up leaves throughout the day. The course was backed up due to a frost delay and a tournament, however the starter got us off the back without wait. The course is short and has an 'Executive' feel to it; but the narrowness and layout makes golfers have to choose how to play off the tee in order to attack the greens. Overall a very nice course that I would recommend trying.

I was surprised by the conditions and layout of this course. I’ve played over 20 different courses this summer and I can only say I wish I played this course sooner. This course looks and feels like a private club with all of its amenities, the landscaping and the amazing stone work. I highly recommend this course to everyone who loves to play golf.

From the pro shop to the range marshal there was nothing but rude comments tone and gesture towards the group and myself. First the pro shop told md I couldn’t go out and that I should have bedn refunded my money even tho they never contacted me at all. Then the pro shop tells me I have to guarantee them that we will be off the course by 4 which clearly I would have been. Then the Marshall proceeds to give me a hard time for not having a receipt even tho the pro shop said it was not an issue as they could not print one out for them makes me go and het my own cart from the garage area off site not letting me use thd open carrs that were available. After which as we were playing we saw multiple groups going out after our group time with carts playing 18 after we were told wd could not because we wouldn’t finish. Honestly believe they did not want us there purely for the fact we used the hot deal on gllf now. Only reason I can think of for the blatant dis respect and unprofessionalism I have ever experienced. Was very disappointed considering the course is actually in emasculate condition and a very fin layout would recommend it on course conditions alone but the service turned me off so much I could not in continence recommend this course. I only get to play so much due to work and family life when I do and spend good money to do so it for the experience to be able to relax and be taking care of what we experienced was far from that.
