Read my reviews from 2015 and 2014 for more comments. Chapel Hill is a 1920 old schooler that's a real nice alternative to play - a course that has enough hills and dales to interest you. The starting stretch of 3 long par 4's and a long par 3 get your attention right away. But then less difficulty until you get to the finishers. Some very small green pads...many with significant slope especially on the back nine. They cut down quite a few trees that were dead but still have a ways to go. The original clubhouse was finally condemned and burnt down - they operate out of "shack" but it has a decent grill and beer....just wish they'd update the restroom facillities.....but all in all the operation workable and this course always has had a really nice vibe to it - at least for me. I'm a value player that appreciates old school design and it's just as fun to play this course as it is to play Stonewall Orchard and pay $100 for my day. We had a nice well paced early season round and all in all was maintained better than my last play in 2017. A solid old school 3 star - $30 value at most all times.

Greens were poorly kept. Every green had a gouge from the blades. We arrived at 7:30 to be told we need to be done by 10:30 because they have a tournament, so after booking/paying full price to be told we need to hurry was kinda irritating. Why even take bookings if you have an event going and tell people you're gonna cut them short?The foursome in front of us was playing incredibly slow. 2 holes in an hour slow and when we picked up our balls to pass them they started yelling at us even though we were going around and they never once came close to catching up. Not a fan on how all the holes are stacked on top of each other. People are constantly constantly coming fromn 3-5 holes over because they had a bad shot. It's so hilly that you will almost never see your ball land. I understand these of difficulties of the course, and I'm not counting that against the course itself, just not my playstyle. Hate making a good drive over a hill. Expecting the ball to be in the fairway to only find out that someone else is playing your ball thinking its theirs... second time playing this course and I still hate it.

The course is fun and challenging. A lot of trees to contend with but the course layout is nice. Only thing is some of the greens need to be repaired in areas. Other than that the course is very nice.

Course was run down. Walked up to what I thought would be a club house to discover a condemmed building. Looked to the right of it to discover another structure that was to be the club house. Staff was nice but the carts were very dirty and the key was on a block of make shift wood? Staff informed me that golf vision had sold the place to the city of Johnsburg and that it would be changes in the future. The course was beat up but playable and not enough markers to guide yourself to next hole etc. I played but was disappointed throughout the day with the shape of course. I would return if reassured improvments would be made. Hopefully new owners make a commitment to this as it has potential.

This was the first time I played this course. The hilly nature of some of the holes made it challenging as the green could not be seen from the fairway approach. The pace on the front 9 was rather slow but it picked up on the back 9. We did finish the round in 4 1/2 hours. There was no drinking water available or any beverage cart so be prepared to have water with you.

A good neighborhood course. Lots of hills and trees, very little water. Grass a little thin and ground a little hard but in good shape otherwise.

Some dead spots(fairways and greens). Greens were very stiff and fast. Stopping the ball was a chore. Wedges bounced off greens like they were concrete. Sand was unplayable on 85% of course. Also surprised they didn't have a ranger babysitting shirtless drunks on Saturday Memorial Day weekend.
