Chester Golf Club opened in 1971, but the “hidden gem” will turn heads after its fresh polish. In the fall of 2022, Rohan Allwood earned the promotion to Head Golf Professional from his previous role as First Assistant at Chester Golf Club. An avid golfer himself, Rohan holds a PGA certification and has previous experience as Head Golf Professional at several other courses in North Carolina, South Carolina and Texas. He offers lessons for beginner through elite golfers and enjoys hosting tournaments and special fitting events with renowned golf brands.
In December, construction began on the course’s bunker renovation project. Chester Golf Club contracted Environmental Landscaping for the job, which provided excellent results from last winter’s bunker project at sister course, Fort Mill Golf Club.
Chester Golf Club is located in rural Chester County, six miles west of I-77 off of exit 62, only minutes from Charlotte or Columbia. The course, which opened in 1971, was designed by Russell Breeden and is known to many as a hidden gem. The club offers memberships but also offers public tee times. Chester Golf Club is owned and operated by Leroy Springs & Company Inc., a 501(c)3 organization that receives no government funding for its ongoing operations and programs. The golf club falls under the Springs Golf portfolio of local courses.
