Some greens were dark in spots but still puttable. Overall course is in great shape and off fairways grooming is excellent.

Good course for the price!

Greens and fairways need a little more TLC! When is the cart path work leading to hole 2 going to be completed?

Course is looking good. Play there often along with other courses nearby. They have cutdown areas.that make it good for off fairway. Greenes are good.

Fairways & Greens Ideal

Not only was the weather beautiful, the course was in virtually the best condition I've found this year. The price to play was just as good as any Groupon for any course within 100 miles. Staff was super friendly and helpful.

Great golf

Great course layout in a country side setting. Greens roll true. Fairways a little dry but very playable. Bunkers are being renovated. Overall pace of play is great. One drawback is no driving range. But ideas to make it happen are being discussed. Staff is courteous and friendly. Go play a round. It’s worth it

Course fairways and greens are in great shape, some greens have bald areas but not significant, some fairways/greens roughs are overgrown and nit consistent. I'll give 3.5 stars

First Time Playing

First time at this track

Course was perfect for me! Tee’d off at 9:10 and was done shortly after 11. So really enjoyed it not being crowded. And a big Thanks to the four groups that let me play through. Overall the course wasn’t in bad shape. Could use some water but so could this whole part of Virginia right now. Greens were in great shape. Fairways were good as well. Tee boxes on back nine were being aerated. Would play again.

(Pace of play matters more to me than conditions of the course. So will give up a little course perfection for a short timed round)
