Course architect Denis Griffiths has created some of the finest courses in the Atlanta area, and Chestatee is among his best. Located in a mountain setting, the course has the feel and scenic beauty of a mountain course without severe or awkward elevation changes.
Length is only occasionally a factor on the par-71 layout, thanks largely to a number of elevated tees that offer some gorgeous views. But accuracy off the tee is a serious concern, especially on several holes where trouble lurks down the right side. With a few of the tees angling to the left, anything right of center may be headed for a hazard, so leave your fade at home.
Once you’ve found the fairway, scoring opportunities are plentiful, as the large greens are not overly undulating. Long, watery, par-4 eighth is among the handful of toughest holes in all of Atlanta, with pressure on both the tee shot and approach. A strong, interesting group of par 5s, with the 16th reachable in two if you avoid some rugged terrrain and go straight at the green from the divided fairway.
