Great course + Great value

This course was in great condition for the middle of December. The staff was friendly. We had our 7-year old golfing with us and everyone was great. The golf carts are state-of-the-art!

Good Affordable course. Not too crowded, but the course conditions weren’t the greatest, particularly the cart paths. The pro shop attendant and snack bar attendants were both friendly and polite. But the starter was not friendly or helpful whatsoever.

Good day for November

It was a nice November day. We enjoyed our round and considering it is November the course was in great condition. Just wish I could have played a little better. ;-)

Great course but...

This is a beautiful course - well maintained t-boxes, fairways and greens, and very picturesque in late fall. Golfers' experience could be improved by repairing the many parts of the cart-paths which were broken, damaged, and pot-holed. This is the first time my friend and I have used carts that can be 'forward motion disabled' by the onboard GPS. Once, I have to back-up the cart in the rough because it was 'outside' the marked area. Once, my friend had to back-up the cart on the fairway because of loss of GPS signal. These incidents caused loss rhythm and momentum of play. It is a terrible design to allow the GPS to disable the forward motion of the cart using pre-determined algorithms. Flashing a message on the display should suffice.

Had a great time

I had a tee time that was an hour after I arrived. They were able to get me on earlier with a couple. Course was in pretty good shape. Pace of play was 4:15 minutes. It felt a little slow, but not enough to be bothersome. Tee boxes are well used but I don’t mind moving back a club lengths to find some grass. I thought the greens were in pretty good shape. Just wish people were not so lazy or stupid and fix their ball marks. Would recommend this course.

Wonderful Course

This is a beautiful course in every possible way. There really isn't any reason to not like playing a round on this course. From the staff to the shape the course is in, it was a great day. There are so many courses around with lousy service, long rounds and flat out poor conditions that is was a breath of fresh air playing one that exceeded all expectations.

Got to play both courses

Played the North course two months. Got the Hot Deal to play the South course. Golfnow website indicates that range balls are included but they did not say only for regular rate, not Hot Deal. That was disappointed because we got that over an hour early thinking we have the range balls to warm up.
The course is short but fairway is narrow. No water at all in the course. Nice and new golf cart but bad cart path. It is a decent course but not sure it's worth the slightly over an hour drive.

Great for new to intermediate player

Had a fun time with my friends who are new to golf. We kept up a good pace and only had to wait a few minutes on some tee boxes to play. For the price this course is excellent. Besides it being wet (which is nobody's fault) the only things that were bad were some green skirts dried up and peeling and some weed wacking needs to be done around some trees surrounding greens (noticed on hole 17). I didn't have the best tee shot on that hole but I was only 15 yards off the green and it took me quite awhile to find it in some tall grass surrounding a tree stump.

Wide open

Wide open fairways great tee boxes and great greens. Upon arriving got a cart equipped with gps and Bluetooth to play music. Trees along the fairways are spread out so very easy to find your ball if you hit it into the trees. Staff was super helpful and friendly. Couldn’t recommend this course more

Rainy day added to challenge

A good challenging course. Some holes will bait you to drive for the green if you're a big hitter-patience is key. It also gave me an opportunity to play in wet weather. I was late to my tee time, but the staff was understanding and got my round in without any problems. I'll hit this course again in dry weather. Can't beat the price compared to other courses in northern VA as long as you're willing to make the drive.

Slow pace

They book too much as the pace of play is always awful. They will pair you up no matter what. The course is ok and getting in better shape. This course used be a little budget gem now it’s a churn n burn course.
