Decent Public Course

Not bad for a public course. Staff was very nice and helpful.

The fairways and greens were well-maintained but do not drain well. Played two days after a thunderstorm came through overnight, and the greens were still soggy. The tee boxes were incredibly uneven and could use a flattening.

The carts are old and could use an update.

The pace of play was slower than slow, so pack your patience.

Great round at Herndon Centennial as always

Love this course, a little short but can always play from the tips. I enjoy the layout and the past of play.

Well done!! :)

Herndon with some rain

While I always enjoy this course, the rain at times today (6/7/22) brought out a deficiency. No back rain flaps on carts! Had to use my towels as best I could to keep bag and clubs from getting soaked. Had an insert for an umbrella but that was too small for my golf umbrella.

Great conditions after rainy couple of days

The course was in great condition considering the amount of play and the wet weather over the previous few days. The greens were very soft and receptive. The fairways rolled very well.

Great condition/ rough is tough

The course was in really good condition and we had a great time playing here. The greens were beautiful but a little slow in the early morning from moisture. Stay out of the rough if you can! It is hard to find your ball until you are right on top of it. Accuracy is rewarded on this fairly short course.
