The intangibles were great, the course not so much

Very accommodating and friendly staff, good lunch spot. The 2 nines I played (they have 3) were in decent condition considering the rain, and they weren't cart path only, apart from a couple of holes. The pace was fine but the course conditions were only average. This is an old style shorter course with quite small greens and spotty tee surfaces. The greens putted well and I enjoyed the round, however the location is not great as some holes are right along a commercial area of road that is not attractive.

First time, hope to return!

Had an appt at UVA so hit this on my way back. Its 3 courses of 9 holes each. They had me to do the olde and creek course and I fully enjoyed both. It is the summer time and the courses, all things considered was in very good shape. Pro shop folks very nice and very friendly. Hope I get a chance to return.

First Time - Loved It!

My first time here. Did the olde and creek courses. It is late August of a very hot summer and even my grass is showing the effects but this course all things being equal was in very good shape. Great staff, polite and very helpful and happy to see me. It was a great afternoon of play. Plus they came around with free ice cold bottled water!

Shenvalee for the day

Beautiful surroundings and 3 very different nine hole courses. The course conditions were better than we expected! We were amazed at how pristine the tee boxes were for this time of year. The greens were receptive and rolled very well. The layout of all three nines is not only a challenge, but also offers you the ability to score on this course. The only negative to our experience was not one water cooler/jug on the course not a beverage cart. For this time of the year and the climate, we considered that to be unacceptable for a “resort course”. Be prepared if you want to stay properly hydrated!

Always fun

Gotta love Shenvalee. Affordable, friendly and the greens are usually underrated. It’s in great shape right now and each of the 3 nines have their own feel. Don’t sleep on Olde still being changing with small greens despite the yardage on the scorecard!

Worth the visit

My late father and uncle used to come play Shenvalle with a bunch of old fogies. Now I practically am one, I wanted to carry on the tradition and can see why they liked it here. Conclusion? Wonderful people, great layout with variety over 3 very different 9’s, and exceptional value for the money.
Was it worth a 10 hour drive to spend a few days here?
Yes, yes it was.
And we’ll be back.
