A hidden gem. Dye through & through.

Right from the start we knew this was a top course. Proshop well run, then over to a solid practice area.

It’s a Dye course, so knowing where to hit it helps, since Dye likes to intimidate visually from the tee. Proshop was out of yardage books, and with no hole pictures on the card, or tee signs, it was difficult to visualise where my target should be. Proshop has ordered new books, and I’d love to play this one again. If books are available, I recommend getting one. No GPS on carts.

Conditions were great. Greens must have been aerated recently, but they are filling in, and rolled well. Tight run off areas around the greens, that Dye seems to love, along with lots of small bunkers. Fairways were pretty much perfect. Bunkers were consistent.

When I’m next in the Roanoke area I plan to play The River again.

Beautiful scenic course

A true gem. A beautiful scenic course played in very windy conditions, creating an additional challenge. Staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful. Greens had been aerated a few weeks back, so somewhat slower. Got off early and my wife and I were able to complete the round in 3 hours and 15 min. I would highly recommend, provides excellent value for the money and I definitely would play again.

First visit, will be back again

Greeted by Mike at the counter, he took time to tell me about the course and some advice being a first timer there. The greens had been sanded which made for some putting challenges. I understand this has to be done. Other then that, beautiful views along the river and a great day of golf on a nice course. Note: choose your right tee or your second shot could be a long one! Will be back!

Awesome experience once again

Had a great time at the course once again. I had an odd request and the clubhouse was very accommodating. I was a single with only a 2 some in front of me and another 2some in front of them. Paced out well so i finished in about 2hrs and 45 minutes. When ever I am in the area I try to get a round in. Highly recommend this course. Lots of different tee boxes so accommodating for all levels of golfers.

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
