Winter Round

Staff was helpful. Range balls are included so be sure to get there with time to hit the range for warmup. Greens were in good shape, although a lot of the pin selections were boarderline crazy. They all seemed to be one pace on the green, I don't know if they're trying to limit green wear/tear during the winter, but it that's your concern you should have two cups cut in the green and have each group swith the pin. A couple of the tee boxes were closed, but since it's a winter round we were chosing whichever tee box we wanted not a big deal. Course is a great layout, so if you can find a deal, def worth getting out to play. Only other drawback was that it took about 4:45 to play. And seems like cartpath only may be their policy throughout the winter.

Nice course

We really liked this course, though we played on December 30 in 60-degree weather. A lot of the tall grass was low and the course probably plays more difficult in the summer. Didn't appreciate the cart path-only rule; with a 1:00 tee time, we only got in 15 holes before dark. There was some slow play at times, including us. But the cart path rue definitely slowed things down.

Great day at Whiskey Creek

thanks to Tee Off we got an amazing rate at Whiskey Creek. The temps were about 40 but we had FULL SUN and NO winds so we had a super day. The course was just about empty too so we never felt rushed. what a great way to end the year.

Top dressed greens

Apparently the course chose to top dress their greens with lots of sand on a wet day. Putting was absolutely worthless on the greens as the ball gathered up sand like a rolling snowball. Course never posted anything on their website to let the public know so I could have made a different choice. Pretty bad for a course that costs $80. Went inside to complain but was not given a refund or a discounted round.

Fall Round at WC

Fairways, tee boxes, bunkers, and greens were inconsistent and many golfers do not rake bunkers or fix ball marks.

No need for Whiskey Glasses!

This place is maintained like an immaculate country club with public access. My first time playing the course as it was recommended by nearly everyone I’ve golfed with in the DMV. Conditioning was superb, only knock is people didn’t fix ball marks. Greens, tees, fairways and bunkers all in great shape. Place is extremely hilly and green complexes are severe so bring your A game. I’ll be back as I totally enjoyed the golf and the staff at Whiskey Creek.

20 yrs+ & still going strong !

I’ve put up several reviews this year and this is just another addition .. nothing new here, all I could say is the course is always in Top Notch Condition ! I’ve complained about their greens being bumpy & slow but they have corrected that as well .. please keep up the good work!

Super Clean, Super Friendly

The course was in mint condition with only exception was the greens…but that was Maintance a few weeks ago. For the price you get free range balls and GPS electric carts. Club house / bar was clean. Food was a bit pricey ($17 Whiskey Burger) but quality was better then average. Strange rule with carts when pairing up with strangers, you have to share a cart…☹️. With so many people sensitive to COVID, was caught off guard with this “house” rule. Overall great course and will be back..with a friend.

Whiskey Creek

The fairways were in good shape, greens were okay given a recent aeration. . Pace was slow due to a foursome the marshall couldn’t move along and he lost his walkie-talkie. The cart’s monitor went off constantly because of this and other annoying messages.
