What Is The Signature, Most Talked About, or Most Photographed Hole?
#12 is a par three measuring 195 yards from the back tee. The tee shot must carry water that is in front and up the left hand side of the hole. It is the only hole on the course without a bunker. It doesn't need one.
What Is Your Favorite Hole? Any Tips to Play It?
Hole #14 is my favorite. Par 4 dogleft left measuring 453 yards from the back tee. Two bunkers protect the left and right sides off the tee and you must clear a creek in front of the green on your second shot. The fairway runs downhill left to right so aim at the right bunker and hit it hard. Ball will skip to the left and roll down the fairway. From there hit a crisp iron into the green avoiding the creek in front and to the right.
Must Have Dish or Drink after the round at the 19th Hole?
The Burgers are amazing. Try the new cod fish sandwich as well and I recommend eating on the porch. The view is a perfect way to end your day at Chariot Run Golf Club.
Who Holds Course Record and What Was Their Score?
Joe Byrd, 65 from the back tee. Joe used to work here at the golf course which helped but he is a great player.

It is an understatement to say, Brian is passionate about promoting golf and golf travel on a local, regional, national and international level.
