Get your registration in for the second of our four major, Individual Stableford tournaments: The PGA
Registration has closed for The PGA. Please see our Event Registration page to register for our next tournament: The Players - two day member/member on July 14 & 15.
Congratulations to Jeff Hardesty for his Hole-in-One on Friday, May 12th while playing in the Friday Shootout (the longest-running, cash-paid, Friday afternoon sporting event in Dawson County.).
The details of the event as told to this reporter by Jeff himself, "6 iron from 160ish into a gentle zephyr. High, majestic fade that landed softly 7 feet left of the pin and rolled in like a putt." As a result of his Hole-in-One, and being a current member of the CGA Hole-in-One Club (H1C), Jeff receives $700 for his "majestic shot".
As a reminder to how the H1C works, it pays for any verified ace scored while playing at Chestatee during the calendar year. The entry fee is $30 for the H1C and it covers winning payouts for 3 Holes-in-One during the season. Once the third Hole-in-One is recorded during the season, then everybody re-antes another $30.
THE REACTION OF MAN WHO JUST WON $700
"Fore please. Now driving, The Masters." The first of the CGA's four individual tournaments for 2023 was held on Saturday, May 6th and while the blooming azaleas and pimento cheese sandwiches weren't readily available, there were plenty of masterful performances to be found.
Congratulations to our overall event champion, Selwyn Glanzer. Selwyn who was +8 over his quota, shooting 74 on the day, nudged out runner-up Steve Hill who came in with a score of +7.

The field was comprised of 11 teams competing in a 4-man team shamble format. Payouts and Player of the Year points were awarded to the top four finishing teams. The winners were:
Thanks to all who participated in the tournament and came out to the Scoring Social for the final iteration of the "Putt Pirate". We're retiring the name but not the format for next year.
Due to anticipated inclement weather for the morning of Saturday, March 25th we are cancelling the group start of the Match Play championship. Instead players can begin lining up their matches with their fellow Pod players. We have altered the dates of the Pod Play round as follows: Matches can begin starting Thursday, March 23rd and all matches now need to be completed by Sunday, May 28th.
Pod folders with scorecards for all matches are located in the wire basket on the scoring table inside the clubhouse along with the box to deposit your completed scorecards. Good luck to all the participants!
Registration is now open for: 2023 season membership, the Hole-in-Club, and our first event of the season - Match Play. It is important to note that each of these items have changes from what was in place in previous years so please pay close attention to each of those pages when registering.
Here's to fun and competitive season of golf at Chestatee.
