    Old Chatham Golf Club Course Review

    The Old Chatham Golf Club is the definition of a golf oasis, located on a beautiful piece of property in North Carolinas Research Triangle and it was built and designed for attracting golf aficionados and purists alike thanks to its charming location and the refined layout and routing. The Old Chatham features 7234 yards of golf from its longest tees, being an 18 hole championship golf course set in four hundred acres of protected woodlands, being a true wild-life sanctuary situated far away from any real estate development. Playing here is like visiting a cathedral dedicated to the great game of golf, as everything is about golf and golf only, without any distractions. The Old Chatham was ranked as the best private club in the Raleigh Durham Chapel Hill Triangle Area by the reputable North Carolina Panel of Raters and Triangle Business Journal. The golf course itself is reminiscent of the good old days when everything about tee and green sites were one hundred percent natural and minimal amounts of earth were moved.

    The fairways are separated by native forests, which look like an epic scenery from the Lord of the Rings movie. Playing here feels like you have the course all to yourself, even if there are other groups around doing the same thing. The Old Chathams golf course is always maintained in impeccable condition, with an obsessive attention to detail as its groomed using a seamless melange of traditional and modern maintenance practices, whilst aesthetics never trump playing conditions, theres no compromise in this department. As per game-play, the golf course at Old Chatham is widely regarded as a challenging yet fair facility, the putting surfaces are true and the greens subtle, putting to the test even the most skilled golfers. Finally, the course was designed as a walking course, with caddies available upon request, but if you want you can rent a cart anytime as long as the golf course is open for play.
