Slow play

The course is in pretty good condition, however, if it’s a nice day you have to expect to spend at least 5 hours on this course. It’s incredibly slow. I’ve played here many times and it’s usually the case, we’re always right on top of the people in front of us and it’s purely because it’s way too slow.

Great layout and course facilities. Mid afternoon starting time delayed 12 mins and pushed us into darkness as we finished. Lots of twosomes allowed on the course messed with pace of play. But layout, value and conditions were excellent.

Aerated greens

They aerated the greens but left a few greens on the back nine not sanded: they were not puttable. Other than that, the course is as good as ever.

One of the best in courses in Virginia

Highly recommend giving this course a try. The staff in the pro shop, including the starter were friendly and informative. The course beverage service could be better and offer more options but that’s doesn’t change my overall course review. They have a decent restaurant service with a chef that knows his way around food.

Well done and keep up the good work!

Nice Course

Most of the aeration has grown over but they put the plugs all around the green making chipping difficult. Overall course is in good shape.

Course conditions and pace of play ruined a day

For a 100 dollar round many of the tee boxes were sand and dirt.

5 hour round. 7 minute tee time interval is stupid. Course was backed up and not marshaled at all.

For a great design this factored ruined some of the round and definitely made it not worth a 100 dollars.

Rather disappointing

I had high expectations for this course. You can tell it has potential, but conditions were not very good. Some of the slowest greens in the DMV and the rough/bunkers were in awful shape. Fairways weren't bad and the view of some of the holes from the tee box were nice.

The layout is interesting, but definitely gimmicky, and the layout is strange (#15 takes you back to the club house).

Spring fall I can see this being a decent track, but it looks like they've lost the course.
