Cheval Golf and Country Club has Reversal of Fortune

Cheval Golf and Country Club - 11th hole

The 11th hole, which used to be the 2nd, is a long par 4 with water right and sand fronting the green on your approach.

I recently got back to play Cheval Golf and Country Club. I last played here at the end of October and found the course in good shape. The same holds true for this time around also, however I did notice that they changed the nines. The back-side is now the front and front-side is now the back. When we asked why, the folks in the pro shop told me that the members had voted for the change to start with a less intimidating hole. This should be good news for players who prefer an easier start to their round.

Other than that, everything was excellent as expected. All the tees and fairways were cut and in good shape. The sand traps are also in good condition except for one or two. The greens are in good shape, but watch out as they are very firm and fast. The driving range was in good shape with range balls for you to hit, also they have a nice chipping and sand trap area near the practice putting green.

Staff was friendly from bag-drop to check-in and there was a beverage cart along the way. Pace-of-play was decent for a weekend. We played as a threesome and made it through in just about four hours. This is a private club that offers “member for a day” privileges so you need to call to arrange tee times and get current rates.

Except for the change in nines, everything at Cheval was in the same excellent condition as usual. Great golf course, great conditions. For more information visit www.chevalgolfandcountryclub.com or check out my previous posts:
