Where are the improvements?
Dear Mr. Dotson:
It has been a few months now since you gave the management company the boot. Why are the greens getting worse? We were told the greens would be back. There has been no aerification, nothing done by the new superintendent. Greens are worse than they were in the summer.
We members, and regulars, are so frustrated. Please help.
A Shame What Has Happened to this Course
As a former member at Rapidan, I was completely disappointed in the condition of the course and the price for 9 holes. The tee boxes are like rough and the greens are almost unplayable. Sadly this course is no longer worth playing!
Price was good, staff were very friendly and helpful
Overall probably wouldn’t go again. The fairways were covered in crab grass and weeds, roughs were dead grass. Greens were water damaged and dead so they were extremely soft. Bunkers had tons of weeds and were hard as bricks. The scenery was gorgeous, however I believe all the money goes towards improving their other course The Gauntlet. (Played there, it’s real nice) I would spend another $10 and go to Lake of the Woods next time.
Enjoyable. Only beef is that there was no water kegs on the course on a very hot, humid day.
Needs Help ASAP
Course is god awful. The “greens” are so dry and diseased it’s almost impossible to have a ball stick on one. Don’t even try to spin a ball, it won’t happen. The fairways are pretty poor as well - lots of grown up weeds and just overall poorly taken care of. The “teeboxes” are absolutely laughable. Most are compromised of dirt with a couple weeds sprinkled in. They’re also hard as a ROCK. I think the absolute worst part of it all is how understaffed the course is. I wanted to buy food and a drink at the turn (after a 3.5 hour 9 holes because there’s no starter) but couldn’t because there was no one inside to ring me up or take my order. Overall, don’t waste your money here unless you’re paying $20 or less. New Direction Golf Management doesn’t really care about your golf experience, they just want to make their money and hope you come back for more. Please for the love of god do not ruin Meadows also.
Nice course, layout is good…. There are some challenging holes and a few “unforgiving” narrow fairways which made the course fun! Par 3’s play longer than measured distance…. Must be extra careful on the cart paths-follow the caution signs! I’m looking forward to my next visits!!
Needs some work
I know it’s early in the season but the course could use some work. The greens were in ok shape but the fairways are rough. Bald patches, weedy, and sparse. The lay out is unique. Drove past at least 2 tee boxes because the boxes were not near the signs. The signs did tell you which hole and the yardage but not what par was. Kind of strange. Sand traps were thin and hard packed. Cart paths are pit hole riddled and crumbling. Made for a very rough ride. I know it’s under new management so time will tell.
Course is in great shape for my play.
Don't go hungry as the kitchen has been closed
