Good day but just short of a great day.....

We had a good day on the course....conditions were good, weather was good BUT the pace of play was like we were stuck in 1st gear....the day could have been great if it wasn't for the fact that it took 5 hours and 5 minutes to play. There was no sight of a marshal to reset the situation.

Chateau as always is very nice. Friendly and professional staff, great well maintained layout. Going to pay a little more here but worth the extra money which is the story behind the whole resort. Must admit I love everything about this place.

Fun Test

The course is a fun test for most ability levels as you might expect from a resort style course, although single digit handicaps likely won’t find the layout too intriguing. If you hit the mostly generous fairways, you’ll typically be rewarded with a good chance of hitting the green (i.e., “fun”). Definitely a couple difficult holes that can put you in a tight spot with elevation changes, but nothing that will have you saying “I’d take a bogey” when you’re standing on the tee.

It’s worth noting that the length of this course varies greatly with the tees and conditions. At almost 6500 yards for Par 71, the Green tee can play much longer than you’d expect if it’s wet, which it likely is most of the time in the morning given the low lying nature of a lot of the course. However, with the next tee forward, Gold, being 5900 yards, it begs the question as to why there is not a hybrid option utilizing both? Indeed, a 6200 yard hybrid tee would provide a good common ground for a lot of players between having to choose between driver/mid to long irons or driver/wedge all day. This would also help pace of play, and although that wasn’t an issue today, the course could certainly back up if the wrong group chooses to play longer due to the large variance in tee distance.

As to conditioning, the greens rolled nicely and were well kept, which was expected for the above-average price tag. The fairways could have been somewhat better, but likely a sign of the fall season and the rain a few days previous. In either event, its comfortably between a good municipal course and a mostly member, semi-private club, which is likely what they’re shooting for.

So, overall, it’s a nice facility and a solid tract. If the tee time makes sense and the location works, you definitely can book without hesitation. Glad I made the choice!
