Would love to hear anything anyone has to say about Old Chatham Golf Course. I am aware of the fees/dues. Have already looked into Brier Creek and RCC. How does the course stand up compared to other private clubs in the area?

I have seen the Old Chatham Course from the air a few times when flying into RDU and it looks a great course. However, having looked at it's web site it seems extrememly pretentious and not sure I would want to be a member of such an 'elitist' club - I did chuckle to myself when I saw your city data name and how that would go down with the great and good at Old Chatham

It is a great shame that the nearest course to Cary Park is so restrictive and having to drive 20 or 30 miles to the nearest reasonable afordable quality courses is a nuisance - and I have excluded Brier Creek and Preston on afordability grounds. Pity we don't have somewhere like River Ridge or Falls Village where Old Chatham is located. But then we all have different views on how we determine afordability.

Have played at Old Chatham often and find it to be a great course with a very accomodating staff. They have just completed the club house, which is great. The course is usually wide open for play and the range facilities are fantastic. The members there do not seem to be pretentious at all, and similar to meeting with other folks that I have played with at Finley, Duke, etc. Feel free to PM me if you have any questions.

Just played Old Chatham and I found it to be an excellent golf course. Immaculate conditions, quick and true greens (Best I've played in the state thusfar out of probably 30-40 courses)

Wide hole corridors, NO houses on the course anywhere, beautiful new clubhouse (not a huuuuuge one). Easy to not lose a ball, hard to score very low.

Very friendly as well. I was pleasantly surprised with Old Chatham - I'd put the course on par with Hasentree...depending on the day, I can see liking one over the other and flip-flopping. Both new money clubs, which is just fine with me!
