Situated in the foothills of Bull Run Mountain, Bull Run Golf Club has a beautiful woodland setting that is conveniently located just minutes from many historic Civil War sites. The course plays through mature forests and across lush, grassy meadows. There are also several ponds that come into play throughout. The expansive layout covers over 450 acres, allowing plenty of room for the native flora and fauna. The risk-reward layout has plenty of challenges for more daring hitters but it also offers wide fairways that are molded to steer the ball towards the center. The landing areas are generous but they are often framed by grassy hollows, bunkers, or mature trees. Bull Run is challenging, but playable, which is why the club is considered one of the best golf courses in the D.C. area.

Great Course

Would definitely play Bull Run again. Course was dry, greens were challenging, and the layout is wide open yet still provides a challenge.

One of the best in the DMV

Greens were great. Fairways are thin in some spots but overall, this course offers great fall golf!

One of best in NoVa

Played weekend of 10/1. Greens were in great shape with occasional crab grass on the collars. For the amount of play this course receives, the fairways were in good shape as well. Need to kill off the geese on #9 though. Overall, Bull Run continues to be one of the best courses in the area. Love playing it during the fall.

Slow Day

Getting around Bull Run in 4.5 hours is normal, but not on 9/26. It was very slow and it was down to a couple of guys that were holding several groups back since they did not understand the concept of pace of play. No ranger to help move these guys along which was needed. The ruff was a little long on several holes that seem to eat up balls and recommend keeping it in the fairway. The staff was great as always and the course condition is what you would expect for this time of year after a pretty brutal summer.

spheksophobia Beware

Course was in good condition, weather was great, greens were rolling decent. My only issue was the amount of wasps/hornets around the green and on course was a bit frightening.

Over rated course with terrible customer service

I really used to enjoy this course a lot but unfortunately the customer service stinks and I will no longer be playing this course ever again. I went there just hit balls and I was told I cannot use the driving range unless I play golf but today I was told that I need to go to golf shop to see if I need to pay to use the putting range. The people that work there are rude and not kind as a result I would never recommend this course to any of my friends. stay away and go play Stonewall GC, Bristow Manor GC, Prince William GC for half the price and much better customer service .

Beautiful course

Great day on the course. Nice tees and greens. Being from Florida, $80 still feels like a lot of money for a weekday round of golf but that’s par for the course up here. Beautiful course with nice layout and not a course where you lose a bunch of balls.
