Rating 68.0

Hollows Golf Club is situated in historic Hanover County, birthplace of Patrick Henry. The club boasts 27 holes of championship golf that are considered the best value in the area since the greens fess are good for the whole day, allowing you to try every hole if you wanted to. The holes are divided into three nines: Cottage, Lake, and Road, that are played in three different 18-hole combinations. The unique layouts of all three offer enough variety to appeal to players of all skill levels. The Lake/Road combination naturally features plenty of water on the front nine. The Lake nine is routed around a large lake as well as a few small ponds. The back nine, Road, is the longest of the three nines, but only by about 100 yards. There is no water but there are some tricky doglegs and strategically placed bunkers.

Slow and no reason for CPO

No reason for greens to be so furry and slow, could’ve been cut lower, not wet and no chance of burnout. Great job of drainage since I last played here. That being said, cart path only was very unnecessary with almost no wet areas on the fairways, 90 deg and avoid the few wet areas. Decent course, 3 nines, played Lake to Cottage. Harder than they look especially with 20 mph winds. Blue tees rank short but don’t play that way with 500+ yd par 5s and the shortest par 3 at 170yds, 2 at 185 and one over 200. Restaurant/bar always was good, did not stop in this time. Range was closed. Lot of good work but…

Pretty Course - Pace of Play an Issue

We love the layout of The Hollows and it has been one of our favorite courses to play. However, pace of play is often an issue and was on Saturday. It took 5 1/2 hours to play 18 holes, which is not fun. As often happens, players move around on the course and you end up with people in front and/or behind that did not start there.

The course is in good shape and the greens are excellent. I wish there was a solution to the undisciplined conditions that are present more often than not.

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.
