Old Chatham a hidden gem

Posted February 25, 2013

Course: Old Chatham, Durham

Play: First things first, it was wet Sunday. They received more than two inches of rain the day before, so conditions were not ideal. Still, you can tell this is a prime spot. I didn’t play very well, but then where’s the surprise there?

It’s a very fair golf course. If you hit it all over the place, you can find your ball. Trust me on that one.

They recently re-structured many of their greens. Now, there are undulations where you might not expect them. It makes you read your puts more carefully.

Being a private course, there weren’t many people out there (the wet conditions probably at work there too). It seemed like we had our own golf course for a while. This is a beautiful place. Coming down the fairway at 18 is memorable, no matter hwo poor you’re playing.

Worth Noting: This is a private course on the border of Durham and Chatham Counties. If you didn’t know if was there, you’d be hard pressed to find it. This is a golf club, plain and simple. No pools, no tennis, just golf. It’s exclusive, with a clientele to match.
