Great value

Only real downside is that the entire course is chalked full of houses. However, course is interesting and in good shape. Afternoon rates are great value.

Standard Course - Pro shop staff not very welcoming

Course is decent but pro shot staff attendant wasn’t the most welcoming. Answers to questions were short and he didn’t appear wanting to really assist. Seemed to us that due to the congestion of tee times he was more interested in getting all groups moving.

This course plays fluid

First time playing this course and I was shocked at how great the condition of the fairways and greens were compared to other courses in the area. Priced lower than most courses. Course is designed and plays well for an average golfer, like myself. I will without a doubt play here again and again.

This course is very challenging, but fun!

Narrow fairways, and trees lined on both sides forces you to hit a straight drive. Greens are decent but quick.

Sad conditions

Started with a group in front of us taking over 25 minutes on the first hole. It continued with finding the greens we punched an had a disease . It ended when we finished the front in just under 3 hours and decided it was best to cut our loses. Would not recommend this course to anyone

Hello, JP. Thank you for reviewing the course. We apologize for the delay of play during your round. This is by no means the standard we strive to achieve. With an uncharacteristically full day, we work hard to accommodate everyone who visits our course and allow our guest the chance to complete their rounds. With that in mind, we are working to best control pace and allow everyone to finish in a reasonable amount of time. We will continue to look for ways to improve by using your comments as guidance. Thank you for playing Lake of the Woods Country Club. We hope to see you again soon.

Call the Course before you book

Great course for the money, call the course before you book. It’s cheaper than the prices golf now posts.

Course - so so. Staff - awful with one exception

When we first arrived and went to pay the experience with the young man at the desk was enough to make me turn around and leave but most certainly enough that I would not want to return. His disinterest in assisting patrons was amazing even as the line grew outside of the window where they take payment. The starter however was wonderful and she was extremely helpful. The course was what I expected in the middle of aeration season. This is just a fun little course to play if you are down and the lake and want to get out. Served its purpose. With limited choices in the area do yourself a favor and avoid this one.

Bang for your Buck

This is a great course for the price. I have played other course in VA for more money and they are not even close to being in the shape this one is. The layout was very nice as well.

Absolutely amazing! A surprise gem!

Absolutely amazing! A surprise gem! I lucked into playing this course today. It was truly amazing. I enjoyed this course more than any other course this year. Every hole was unique, very well taken care of, and a joy to play. I give this course the highest marks on all categories. If you have the opportunity to play here, it is by far one of the best courses you’ll find in the area.
