Hollows Golf Club boasts three unique nines that are played in different 18-hole combinations. Conveniently, the greens fees are applicable all day, which gives you the opportunity to try out all three. The nines: Cottage, Lake, and Road, are varied enough to appeal to a wide range of skill levels. The Lake/Cottage combination features the most water of the three golf courses. The Lake nine wraps around a massive lake, the centerpiece of the 27-hole course. There are also a few small ponds that come into play on the front nine. The Cottage nine only has water on the third hole but this tough par 3 leaves a lasting impression. It is the Cottage's signature hole that not only features water but also an 8-foot deep bunker on the left.

Dont play on Friday

Poor experience compared to what I am familiar with at this course. The range was closed because the personnel that worked there couldn't be bothered to collect the range balls. Then the first tee was backed up and 20 minutes late and people were playing as a group of seven. Front nine took 2 hours and 20 minutes when we can usually play in under two hours. Skipped three holes on the back since the groups out there were so slow and had no idea what they were doing. They had two open holes in front of them but were in no hurry. Need to have someone out as a ranger to move people along so their day is not ruined with such slow play.

Great day in the heat

Course in great shape considering all the rain, heat and dry conditions the past month. Tee boxes , fairways and greens all in great shape. Crabgrass being killed off around the green due to the heat and dry weather last month so glad they are being proactive. Great pace of play, only 3:43 minutes to play 18.

One of the best golf courses in Virginia!

My brother and I play at this course frequently because it is one of our favorite courses in the state of Virginia to play at! We love this course it is well-maintained the fairways are like carpet, the greens are immaculate! Andy, the owner of this course takes pride in making sure this course is in top-notch condition! Every time we play here we see him on the course doing maintenance to make sure it is kept up. In addition to Andy being so amazing and managing an awesome course, his golf pro Jimmy is awesome! If you need lessons he is who you need to see! He loves what he does and it shows because he is very passionate about giving lessons and seeing the results in his customers! I also wanted to Bob in The golf shop and Jerry…. they are amazing And always always giving the best customer service ever…… Let’s entire team and golf course is the best of the best of the very best! Thank you all so much for being so wonderful! We look forward to seeing you again soon!

Great value - greens were in good shape

But fairways and tee boxes were rock hard with mostly dead grass. Very short and forgiving course, but with some sloped fairways and dog legs that add a little strategy into the mix.
