After a few beers at Shorts brewery, we went to the Pelicans Nest restaurant at the Chief golf course at Shanty Creek resort. Mike was our 'host' behind the bar and made sure our visit was pleasurable. The advertised fish and chips were very good and judging by the crowd a very popular place on a Friday night. They actually... More

We wanted to play 9 before heading home today. Turns out Tuesday is 2 for day so we were able to get it for half price. This course is so beautiful. Play smart and pick your targets and you can have a lot of fun. I definitely want to come back for more.

This is more than just a golf course is stunning nature preserve we were completely blown away at how magnificent this golf course is. I would pay 30 bucks just to drive the cart around the grounds for a couple of hours and pick all the wild berries and see all the magnificent flowers and trees and birds. It might... More

An awesome golf course. Its hilly and unpredictable terrain make for a challenging and exciting day on the links.

We played the Chief in the fall so of course there we're leaves on the course which one would expect. However, it appeared that the maintenance had gone down as the course got near it's closing time for the season. The worker who was to open the course was late getting there so two groups were waiting for her to... More

I don't know where to start...we decided to stop at the Pelican's Nest Restaurant (on the golf course) for a beer before we checked in at Shanty Creek Resort. It's about 4pm at this point, we ordered beers at the bar (Mike was the bartender - he's awesome!) and chatted with people that played the course earlier in the day.... More

I played The Chief last fall and was just amazed with the course. I'm bringing my wife back for Fall Colors this year. My favorite of the Shanty Creek courses.

Although an extremely HOT/HUMID week, my group of 3 average golfers enjoyed the beauty and challenge of this course! The staff on the course were welcoming and helpful! Looking forward to returning and enjoying this course in the fall! The clubhouse restaurant was inviting and the food pretty good...the BangBang shrimp was tasty! SHORTS beer is available here, so that... More

Played at The Chief on Saturday June 29th. While the greens and the course are in good shape the design of many holes is simply not proper. The second hole is a short downhill par 3 with a green that goes from front to back and just beyond the green is basically out of bounds. Many other holes are not... More
