Check $ before booking

Played with three friends today- one of whom did not buy the hot deal. Turns out he paid less than the rest of us. Call the clubhouse for winter rates before buying through GolfNow.

Great course. Very well maintained. Perfect greens.

Drying out

Always enjoy Hobbs Hole, started on back 9 due to frost. Only 1-5, front on cart path, course is starting to get roll and the wet areas are getting smaller. Greens are in nice shape and rolling well. Bunkers are improving. Played with a couple of new members who came over from Mattaponi who had already played the front. Good pace on first nine, the twosome left and I was able to join a couple that was behind me. Pace slowed way down on 2nd nine partially due to 1-5 cart path but also strange mix of groups, 4-somes ahead of single ahead of two ahead of us. This turned into more than one group waiting on tee. Still enjoyable overall but one of my favorite places for 19th hole drink and food was closed by the time I got in at 4:05

Icy but nice

The bad 1st, the driving range was closed for maintenance. I assume it is for the rain that never seems to stop. conditions were much better than I thought they would be. Cart path only for 1-5 and those only looked bad in spots. The course was in good shape and the greens were rolling well. There were some wet areas here and there to be avoided but pretty good considering other courses such as Ford's Marsh Hawk have been virtually unplayable for weeks. We started on the back 9 because it probably de-frosts earlier. There were a lot of ice filled puddles still but overall pretty darn good. Pace of play slowed down on the 2nd (front) nine due mostly to a five-some that was causing some minor delays pace. Stopped in after for a couple of adult beverages and the ribeye sandwich, WoW. Always good food and folks are great there.

Great condition for time of year

Hobbs Hole has and will always be one of my favorite courses to play. The greens this time around were surprisingly quick and in great shape for the amount of rain we had recently and over the last few weeks. Tee boxes were in good shape. Fairways were great and pace of play was faster than any course in Richmond. I live an hour away and can’t wait to come back. If you like “friendly” tee shots and great greens it’s a course for you.

This course has beautiful fairways and greens.

The course was very wet due to the rain the past couple days, but it is still playing great.
You will absolutely love the setup and the beautiful greens.

DIFFICULT GREENS

Course was well worth the hour plus drive. The only thing that our foursome of average golfers found to take the fun of the round, was the speed and general difficulty of the greens.

Terrific Course

First time playing Hobbs Hole today. Great course with a terrific layout. Challenging for good golfers but fair enough for anyone to play. Course held up well from 6+ inches of rain this week. All in all, an absolute delight.

The course played great and was in good shape.

Good course but some of the hole were awkward. The green from one hole back to another. If you hit it wrong your ball can fly to the other green or impede on the play of others. There was no cart person.

Hidden Gem

Course was in extremely good condition, and greens were amazing. The area had 5.5 inches of rain during the week, so cart path only on holes 1-5, 2 holes of which are par 3's. Overall, this is the best course to play for enjoyment of golf in the area. I only wish I lived closer.

Great layout for both beginners and “experts”, well maintained, greens were fast and rolled true.
Staff was extremely friendly and accommodating.
Definitely will play again when I’m back in VA.
