good conditions for Dcember

as we enter the few months of unavoidable winter conditions, Birkdale is one of the better reasonably-priced public choices in Central VA. always a good layout and pretty decent conditions for fairways and greens considering the winter turf dormancy

Still one of my favorites

This course is great for ALL skill levels. Nothing too easy and nothing too difficult. Weather was perfect and the course looked great for this time of the year. Staff was extremely friendly and even let me tee off early. I never know what to put for off site amenities but if I had used them I am sure they would be just as good as the on site ones. This course is fun and you won't leave this course feeling like you've been beat down by the golf gods.

Great Course for the money.

Played with close friend and we are both Lefties. The course just sets up very nice. I’d recommend it. Play was a bit slower and could benefit from a marshal moving the flow along.

Course remain in terrible condition all summer

The T boxes were extremely hard, fairways were either very wet/muddy or Nothing but dirt. The greens were full of Divet‘s in bare spots.

Management is terrible. They could care less about how many teetimes they made at once and how long it takes to get through the course. This was my first year as a member and my last year

Major improvements

Let’s start with range balls, very expensive for not very good range balls and crappy grass at the range. Course looked very good, major improvements over conditions the last few years. Much better looking and more playability. bunkers were cared for though several were wet or very hard they were at least given some attention. Greens are getting much better though as I find at all the local courses, very few people are repairing their ball marks and it is the main problem with most greens. I don’t understand not taking the small amount of time to properly repair your own ball mark. If you can’t find your own, fix another, it is good for everyone. I saw signs on driving range about divot management but you may want to put a few on repairing ball marks. Pace of play was slow as course was busy. We did not check out the amenities after round. Very impressed with the progress and I hope you continue. Worth playing if you haven’t been there lately.

Fun course

Good layout and at times challenging. Place is in ok shape for Aug with a couple of rough greens and tee boxes but it really didn’t bother me at all. Good value for the price so I recommend giving it a look.

Gone downhill fast

Got a deal on TeeOff and paid $36. On a Friday. Great!! But that’s where the fun ends. The greens are in terrible shape with sand on some and large areas of no grass on most. So between the grass loss and the hundreds of unfixed ball marks, putting is just a guess I don’t know how they could go so bad so fast but it’s bad enough that we won’t play there any more this year. They should pay us to play a course in such bad shape!
