Rating 67.9

Located in Montpelier, Hollows Golf Club has a 27-hole layout that is considered one of the best values in the area. The holes are divided into three nines that provide three different 18-hole combinations. The Cottage, Lake, and Road nines come with enough variety to offer something for players of all skill levels from low handicappers to more experienced players. The green fees are applicable the whole day, which allows golfers to play all three courses if they have the time and the inclination. The Cottage/Road combination only has water on one hole, but it is a memorable one. The hole is Cottage's par 3 third, which is the golf course's signature. There is not only a formidable pond along the right but also an 8-foot bunker on the left. In addition to the golf courses, the Hollows also has an all-grass driving range and putting green.

Hollows Aug ‘22

Staff is great. Laid back atmosphere. Greens in good shape and roll true but slow. Fairways are narrow on a couple holes but in decent shape. Due to type of grass the fairways tend to get thin in spots. Pace was slow on a hot Sunday but is usually better. Not in a subdivision, which is a nice plus.

Great public course for a public price

The Hollows is one of my favorite golf courses in the area. It has a good layout paired with good maintenance. The only bad thing you could say about this course is the poor drainage in some places,, which they’re well aware of. I played the entire round only losing one ball, which somehow got lost in the rough on Cottage #9 left side of the fairway. If you found my AVX be nice to it. With how short the course is it’s a great place to go low, broke 80 for the first time here and won’t stop coming back anytime soon!

Nice place to go

I played on a very hot Wednesday. Only a few others choose to play that afternoon. There are 3 nine hole courses. I played Cottage first and it is in need of some work and would rate it 2 stars. The greens are bent grass and nice. I then played the Road Nine. Much nicer with better fairways and tees. I would rate this a 4 star nine. The cart paths are gravel this dust is an issue. The golf cart was quite worn but got me around just fine. Nice value for the money and drive from Richmond.

Decent course. Fair price.

Greens are in pretty good shape. Pace of play was great. Course layout was easy to follow. Decent little track for $30. But you probably won’t find yourself desiring to come back.

Relaxed Round

The course was in decent shape. Hole #1 was shortened to.a par 3 so that work could be done on the fairway.

Great Day

The greens were in tip top shape, just the right amount of firmness, watering and proper grooming. Well manicured greens and fairways in good shape as well as tee boxes. Ground hard so tough to plant your tees for tee shots. Fairways hard so ball rolled extra far.. Great day for scoring in spite of the wind. 8 one putts always help your score, as geens were true. People friendly and helpful but no ranger so pace of play is hit or miss. Had 3 stooges in front of us hitting multiple shots but still finished in 4 hours.

Great value

My first time playing this course. We chose it based on the price. I am not a person who can pay $100 a round, so I look for a value.
This course was in great shape and fun to play. I will be back and have already recommended it to others
