I played this course for the first time today 9/18/2015. This is a nice facility and the course was in good shape. The fairways are tight in places and can be frustrating due to the slope of the hills falling off to the left and right with no warning. It was nice to meet 2 locals who had played here several times before and had great advice on shot placement. 20+ handicaps will have a hard time with this course.

I played the Chesapeake Hills Golf Course last week and loved it. The course had rolling fairways and elevation changes that were spectacular, by far the best design in the area. The course was also in great shape, especially the greens! The back nine is the better of the two nines as it has few houses on it and is more scenic. The pro shop was fully stocked, the grill room had just been remodeled, and the staff were great. I will definitely play it again; it is a great value for the money!

I live rather close to this course and so I play here often but that's because it is cheap and saves gas money. The course is in terrible shape the greens are slow and they have lost most of them. The people around the course constantly create trouble. And the course has been vandalized numerous times. Would only recommend if you don't have the money or time to go somewhere else

I played this course for the first time. Just starting back playing regularly after almost 18 years With having a beautiful day for the first time in over two months and nothing better to do I decided to take advantage of the play all day special ($47.00 w/cart, M-F) and get in as much as I could until I got tired.
Let me write this like this:

Pro Shop: The pro shop was fairly large and well stocked. The staff was friendly once he arrived. They had one person working in the pro shop and I had to wait 10 minutes on someone to show up to collect my money. There wasn't anyone paying attention to what was going on. If I weren't an honest person, I could have gone ahead and got a cart and started playing without paying a dime.

Course: The scenery wasn't to bad and as one previous review stated, it is hard to get a even lie. There are several elevation changes and on many of the holes and there are several holes that really make you think with regards to your club selection off of the tee.

Problem: Pace of play. 6 hours to play the first 18 was crazy and this wasn't even a weekend. I got behind a foursome that would not let me play through. I then teamed up with a twosome and this group still wouldn't let us play through. They spent entirely to much time searching for balls and then would stand on the green and discuss what one must assume are putts before exiting. The twosome I teamed with got sick of waiting and went ahead of them. I heard several groups asking where the marshalls were a different times throughout the day. In the score card the golf course rules state "Play will be monitored at a pace of 4.5 hours." So much for rules I guess.

Maintenance: Not bad for a public course that hasn't seen much rain in the last 90 days with temps well into the 90's. Greens had some burn marks and had recently been aerated. They need to treat for the mud wasps. The last 3 holes in particular I noticed that the mud wasps were pretty bad.

Carts were clean and had built in ball and club washers which was nice. However, if you were walking, there were no ball washers at any of the tee boxes. Also, they could use more water stations. I think I counted 3 on the entire course.

Overall I would say this course is a good value and even with the slow pace of play, I would play it again. I know most course around this area use volunteers to be marshalls and hopefully they will get some more.

This course provides one of the best scorecards I have ever seen. It is a booklet that shows all the holes and provides distances.

The Front Nine of Chesapeake Hills is a pleasure to play. The value is good for the front 9 holes. They have their fair share of difficulty for bogey+ golfers like myself. Some shots require proper placement in order to play the hole well. Greens are large and along with the fairways are undulating and manicured. Overall a good looking and fun Front Nine.

The Back Nine is a different story although not entirely managements fault. There is currently a lot of construction going on the Back Nine that affects three or four holes that upsets the flow of the round. The low maintenance score is a reflection of this fact. Also, a construction worker sitting in a front end loader purposely beeping the horn more than once during our back swings was not appreciated. Let me stress that this was not golf course staff and grounds crew creating the distraction. They were very polite. Once construction is complete and the construction workers are gone, the Back Nine is probably going to look as nice as the Front Nine. Temporary inconvenience, permanent improvement.

There is another more disturbing problem that has been mentioned in a couple of reviews. That is, the problem with rowdy young people around the 17th and 18th fairways. From the tree line along the 18th fairway, an 11 or 12 year old with a friend who later disappeared, was hitting golf balls across the fairways at us with a baseball bat. As I lined up a shot in the 17th fairway, one ball landed just behind me from across the 18th fairway. I do not mean 20 feet over my head, I mean a foot or two. Several other balls also hit in the area. We saw the kids and yelled and of course they kept it up. I said we would deal with the problem if necessary, when we came up the 18th fairway. When we reached the 18th fairway, the mother of the child and I am guessing two older brothers, one around 15-17 years old and one around 20 confronted us. The teen accused us of using racial slurs such as the Nword. The younger child had told him that we used the word. The mother insinuated the same. We never came close to saying anything of the sort. I told them that and explained what her child was doing. The child then verbally blasted us with Fword obscenities as the mother looked on. I told the mother to walk across the fairway and look at all of the old balls that her child had hit. It was obvious that he had been doing it for a while. Plus, he was still holding the bat! Finally, after we explained that we did not come to play 18 holes of golf in order to pick on an 11 year old she told the child to apologize, if he did anything wrong! With that we left while the 11 year continued with the stream of obscenities.

I am not sure if management can really do anything about this problem. It is a shame because the Front Nine is terrific and once construction is complete, I am sure this is going to be a very good looking course with nicely challenging 18 holes to play. However, being used for target practice and then being confronted as if we did something wrong is too much. If I ever play there again, it will only be the Front Nine. The rest is just not worth it, no matter how much money is spent improving the course.

The course is a good challenge with lots of slopes, hills, and bends. You rarely get an even lie - even in the fairway. Many tee-shots are either forced layups or blind. Several holes offer risk-reward off the tee or second shots. The greens are firm, decently maintained (better in recent years), but can be a bit bumpy at times. The only significant detractor for this course is the neighborhood in which it's located. I've seen teenagers heckling people on the greens and clueless vagrants wandering across fairways as the group was tee-ing up. Not sure what the management can do about this.

Played July, 2007. I'm not sure what it was like before, but a lot of recent renovations at this course has really made it a nice, value-driven course. At $25 with a cart for 18 twilight holes (I think $35 is the most expensive), it's a high-value course. It's in really quite good shape and has a very scenic, well put together layout with lots of trees and water to contend with. Greens were in pretty good shape. Highly recommend, especially for the price.
