Slow

Expensive to play for the current conditions. They started everyone on the back. Tee time meant nothing. Waited 20 min. past tee time to tee off behind numerous 4somes. Very slow play !!!

Greens and fairways were in terrible condition. I guess I’ll give it the benefit of the doubt because of the weather the pst month but the bathrooms were filthy.

A good playable course, not to hard, not to easy.

The course is always in good shape. I drive 50 minutes to play it. A course has to be in good shape for me to drive that far when I have other courses closer to me.

Great course for the value

Really nice public course! Greens rolled really good, fairways were a little wet in some areas of the course. Average practice facilities but they get the job done. I’d definitely play it again.

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.
