Beautiful track; very good condition; FAST but true greens
Discovered Chestatee during the summer and have played about 10 rounds there. Great track; lots of elevation changes and some pretty views of the mountains and Lake Lanier (17 is gorgeous from the tee box). Gotta play the course left of the 150 most of the time; it would be a tough course for big faders/slicers. Good tee box choices including a 6250 yard 'members' option (whites and blues) which I like. Greens lately have been as fast as any I've ever played on and they roll true. They are very firm; well struck approach shots will hold just fine, but you won't get any '1 bounce and check' pitches. For the most part, bunkers have plenty of sand. #8 is the #1 handicap hole; a long par 4 with water all along the right and a pond to cross about 30 yards in front of the green. It's a good test to see if you're playing from the proper tees.
All in all, a very enjoyable course that doesn't seem to get that much play. A couple of Sundays ago I got in 36 in less than 6 hours, playing by myself and hitting 2 balls without having to wait very often. Maybe the best value of any of the 'north' courses.

Great round at Chestatee
Always love playing at Chestatee. Course was in great condition. Pace of play was very good (3:50 for 4 players). Unbelievable value - less than $40 including range balls.

Scenic course makes good excuse to stop at the Premium Outlets
Scenic course gives you a view of the N. GA mountains, without going all the way up there. Easy access directly from GA 400, also makes for a good excuse to stop at the nearby Premium Outlet Mall. Well maintained with excellent facilities. Enjoyable round!

Nice flat fast greens!
Very nice staff and free range balls. Beautiful layout with great views. Fivesome in front slowed the pace but no big deal.

Great day for golf
We were able to play with two for around 60$. The staff was great and the greens were pristine.

Very nice hilly terrain course
This is a very fun course. A lot of shot options for a mountain course. Open fairways and good bail outs. Terrific views and very friendly staff. I would recommend this course to friends. It was well worth the price.

Very Nice, Fair layout, with good conditions
I've had great luck with this course, finding good Golfnow.com deals and good pace of play. Played early in the day as a single today, and went through a few other groups, then moved quickly around the course. Greens are in very good shape. A good mix of tough and easier holes, with interesting par 5s that can be challenging if you don't hit the ball in the proper area off the tee. Number 8 is one of the toughest par 4s in the area, but still fair. Definitely a course to add to your play list.
