Great Afternoon of Golf

Friend and I played Herndon Centennial today and had a very nice round of golf. Course was generally in great condition, the only slight drawback being the greens. Not sure if they've recently been seeded, but they were somewhat inconsistent. Still, this was a minor issue as the course overall played very well.

Decent Course

Enjoyed the course. Tee boxes were a little worn out in some cases, but the staff seems to do a good job repairing greens and areas since it appears most players do not seem to want to fix their ball marks/divots. Round took 5 hours and I wish there was a marshal holding people accountable to playing at a reasonable pace...

Pretty Good

Herndon Centennial was definitely a good course for the money. While not visually blowing anyone away, it was a well kept course that challenges most levels of play while still able to provide getable birdie chances. Semi-tight fairways force players to be relatively consistent off the tee but the overall short yardage of the course gives players options to club down and be more accurate. Pace of play was pretty normal for a course in Northern Virginia and I would play again in the future.

Generally decent conditions but slow pace of play

Highlights
- tee boxes generally in poor condition.
- greens and fairways in great condition
- rough was thick
- pace of play was awful. Tees off at 7:30 and took almost 5 hours. Absurd.
