"Great course"

1/18/21: Review by The B-Man

Greens were fa-a-a-st! When I play during the warmer months, the greens are usually lush and play like thick carpet. At this time of year, they are dormant and slick. Downhill putts were treacherous! The course has dried out so no issues in the fairways or bunkers. $40 for...

Description

The Chester Golf Club is located in rural Chester County 6 miles west of I-77 off of exit 62, only minutes from Charlotte or Columbia. The course, which opened in 1971, was designed by Russell Breeden, and is known to many as a “hidden gem.” The TifEagle Ultradwarf Bermuda greens offer a smooth, but testing putting surface. The tree lined 419 Bermuda grass fairways further insure that golfers of all skill levels will have a challenging but fun round of golf. The signature hole, number 12, is a par 5 that requires two shots over water. The course is surrounded by forest land and an abundance of wildlife.

B-Man's Take

I haven't played here yet so the description is straight from the course website. This course is one of a foursome of courses owned by Leroy Springs & Co -- Springfield, Fort Mill and Lancaster being the other 3. It is a nice set of courses usually kept in good shape.

    "Great course"

    Played here Saturday in a 2 man scramble event and the course was in very good shape. Greens were smooth and fast , fairways were plush, tee boxes and bunkers in good shape. The weather was perfect and I really like this layout just wish I had played better, oh well.

    The hits are coming fast and furious now... all Leroy Springs golf courses have shut down effective today. That's Springfield, Fort Mill, Lancaster and Chester Golf Clubs.

    Statement from Leroy Springs:

    "Despite the precautions we have taken, many of our staff positions conduct transactions with the public which have been difficult to isolate. As a result, we have made the difficult decision to suspend operations at all four Springs Golf courses, effective the end of the day today (April 1, 2020). Maintenance operations will continue."

    "Great course"

    Had not played at Chester since they put in the new grass on the greens. They were really good. Fast and true. Ball rolled smooth. The course is beginning to green up. Fairways were dry and the ball rolled. Traps were full of sand and were raked. Overall the golfing experience, especially with the new greens was really very good. It is worth the time and money to make the drive down to see this course.

    "Great course"

    A great return to a great course! It was nice to see the course coming to life. Dormant grass was still prevalent but there were signs that real green grass was making it's way back. The greens were in pretty fair shape. They have certainly improved from earlier in the winter. News is that the course is closing in June for a complete replacement of all the greens. New grass, not bent will be in place by the middle of August. This should solve the issues that recently challenged the grounds team, especially during hot summer months. This is a great layout and worth the drive and expense.

Ballantyne closes today :-(

By The B-Man on 12/31/20

For those that may have missed the news last month, The Golf Club at Ballantyne closes for good today. I really hate to see it go and have no idea how they will manage to find comparable golf for their guests to enjoy while staying the hotel. I will always have a plaque...
