Dogwood in November

Can't really say enough about this course, for a city owned public course it's in good shape. Greens were nice, not overly fast but not slow either. Some ball markings but not bad, no invasive grass on the greens. Fairways were nice, Bermuda rough swallows golf balls and leaves .. Some tee boxes could use some work but most are ok. Pace of play was decent considering it was crowded and beautiful out. 75 and sunny. I would recommend anyone to give this course a go. The back nine is the more difficult for any one interested.

After the rain

It rained hard just 2 days ago and the fairways and greens were sloppy wet with standing water in dozens of places Course should have been cart path only cuz now there are hundreds of tire mark ruts all across every fairway. The greens need a major ball mark repair program to teach everyone how to repair their ball mark plus two others. Also need to have ranger on course to speed up the slow groups.

Fantastic Off-the-Radar Gem

Wonderfully maintained course! I’m used to playing a lot of Midlothian courses, but the extra 30 min drive down to Petersburg was well worth it. Fun course layout, challenging and forgiving where necessary. If you lose your ball here, you probably deserved to lose it - as the roughs are well cut and still extremely playable. I’ll definitely be back! Staff was great too!

Visitor round

I live in the Nashville TN area and visiting Petersburg. Picked Dogwood Trace to “scratch the golf itch” and couldn’t have chosen a better course. Loved the layout and the conditions were excellent. Thanks to the staff for the obvious hard work they do. I will be back whenever the opportunity comes.

Quick round

Pace of play was beyond excellent as we played as twosome in 2 hours and 35 minutes with only a threesome in front of us and they let us thru when we caught them on 10th tee. Greens have crabgrass encroaching on edges of most of them and were not real smooth. Was 93+ degrees and no water or beverage cart on course. Sand traps showed a lot of work since last time we were here which was after the monsoon on August 15-16-17.
Overall it was much much better than most courses recently especially magnolia green and birkdale!!

Amazing course conditions but would be worth paying 5 more bucks a round for phenomenal greens.

Great layout and fairway to rough course conditions. Excellent sand in bunkers. Greens are a bit slow and could be improved upon. However, I do know what this value holds compared to courses like Providence where the rates are high and the greens are slower.
