Golflover

There were some constructions going on at least 3 holes. Those holes were initially par 5 or 4. However, the tee boxes were relocated and I had to play less than 200 yards in each holes. I did not hear anything about the course construction from the starter. When you think of the price of the course, it is not worth playing until the constructions are done.

Other holes were in good shape. I liked the course layout and bunker and green condition. I might visit again but maybe later this year around June.

Fun layout

Good place to test your game with long narrow greens and narrow fairways. Sharpen your wedges and have your fairway finder ready for this test of golf.

Another great round

Always enjoy playing this course. The staff is super friendly and it is evident that they are putting a ton of work into the entire golf course. Stay away from the deep bunkers, if possible.

Layout was good

Got to play the course they Golf Now app and wasn’t disappointed on its reviews. I would play this course again without any hesitation. I’m visiting from South Texas and appreciated the weather and course. Staff were friendly and the starter was hustling making sure golfers started on time from the start.

Dog track

Greens were decent. Thats about it
Tiny fairways dug up all over the place. Bunkers were ok.
Goofy layout with a lot of blind tee shots. Definitely not worth $79

The course looks great

The people who are saying the course is in bad condition. They must play at the best of the best most of the time. For guys who frequent public courses, this course was in great shape compared to others in the area that are priced similarly. The greens were faster than most around here. The layout is a bit tougher than other courses which makes for great fun. I was here when a couple holes were almost out of commission because they were being redone. Those holes are excellent. We did start on hole 8 like the other review said. And no there is no driving range. The pace of play was great. We didnt want to hit on a tee once. Starting on 8 is harder because water on the first 3 holes from there. Thank god i got par,par,bogey. Had a great outing. Cant wait to go again. Definitely again before the end of the year.

Additional $11 for your own cart

Even when another single has already paid this course makes you pay an additional $11 to ride ! It’s the only course in the area that I have played that does that! I already v paid for a cart in my golf now fee snd then I pay an additional amount ONLY at Penderbrook!
Additionally, I have probably played here 10 times and it’s always cart path only snd it’s was sunny and dry

Great Course! Always Fun

I have played this course 4 times in 2022. Each time I have been paired with very nice golfers! The course is fun and challenging. I love the 9th hole outpost. Bathrooms are clean and the staff is friendly and efficient. The course is in good shape considering it is late in the season and this is a busy course. Pace of play is on the slower side, but I’m generally not in a huge hurry to get somewhere else when I play. The beverage cart comes by at appropriate intervals. One of the best things about this course is Mulligan’s. Go see Donald and his crew you will leave very well fed! The food is excellent!! I’ll be back and will likely get some type of membership next year!

Needs TLC

Love the layout at this tight course, but it isn’t a great experience. There are very pretty holes but also a handful of ugly holes. Fairways are in bad shape; greens were solid but slow.
Clubhouse guy was kinda rude. Weird they don’t take cash to buy a Gatorade. Zero water coolers on the course, zero ball wash stations. Signage is poor, and the tee markers look like they were cut with a butter knife and painted 40 years ago.

This course has SO MUCH potential in a historic Fairfax area, but they don’t put any love into the course.

As for the play, SO MANY blind shots. Thank goodness for 18 birdies app.
