Beautiful course on the river

Beautiful course along the New River. Pace of play was a little slow but was that to be expected on a busy football weekend. Would definitely recommend playing while in Blacksburg

Wonderful day. Great course. Beautiful location.

The scenery along the New River is spectacular. The course is not too difficult from the Correct tees, as we quickly decided to move up. Fairways had been aerated and were wet. But, the course is straightforward. A little local knowledge where misplaced aiming poles will lead you astray would be helpful, but overall, a good challenge. Would now like to play it again. Guess that is the sign of a good course!! For the money, a great experience.

Great time as always!

Had a blast playing this spot for the fourth time. The weather was excellent and we really enjoyed the challenge and layout of the course. Bunkers really got us on the back 9! Didn’t check out the restaurant but plan to do so next time. Will absolutely play again.

Great course

I played this course because the greens had been plugged which made it only 25$. This course is always around 50 at the minimum and the best course in NRV. The course is beautiful and parallels the river, the wind is always changing and makes each shot different.

New To The Course

Excellent experience for the first time. Greeted by nice guys who wanted to help and made sure we had a good experience. Course was in fair condition, greens we punched and sanded which made putting difficult. Layout on the New River is spectacular and well worth a visit. Narrow fairways and small greens also made it challenging. Pace of play was slow. Post round in the clubhouse was also slow service. Overall very glad we came and certainly would do so again if in the area.
