Best Public Course in Lynchburg

This is far and away the best public course in Lynchburg. The course is always in excellent condition. The new carts are a bit weird at first but you get used to them. Overall the course is wonderful and isn't too challenging if you know the layout. It was a busy day so pace of play wasn't the best on that day but I have played many rounds there where pace of play was excellent. This is a must play if you are in the area and have never played it before. It has a great putting green, driving range, and great clubhouse.

First Time Playing

Terrific course

This was my first time playing this course. From the clubhouse to the eighteenth hole it was highly enjoyable. It is a challenging, but not overwhelming eighteen holes. I will be playing this course again.

Great Value

London Downs is one of the best values in the area. The greens are generally in great shape and the staff is always friendly. I live in Reston now but play this course every time I come home.
