Uninformed

Bad signage....had no idea where the pro shop was. Hole markers were not facing the cart path so you have to walk up on the tee box to see what hole you're playing. The should have signs on both sides.
No tee markers on tee boxes so you dont know where you are playing from. Blue? White? Yellow? Red? Just had to guess.

No alcohol sold on property. What!? I've never heard of this! Would have been good to know before we arrived.

Course is in great shape from tee boxes to fairways to greens. Course itself was enjoyable but amenities were not up to par in my opinion and the lack of signage and markers was very frustrating.

I would play this course again....knowing what I know now. If you're a first timer, be prepared to be confused and frustrated by the time you tee off.

Bring your own beverages!!!!!

Just played the course today. No idea how you couldn't find the pro shop. The letters are about 3 feet tall. Hole signage was facing the cart path.

Several six-somes and loud groups

There were several groups of six. Three different groups had music players like Rodney Dangerfield in Caddy Shack. I've never seen that in 20 years of playing golf, but I saw three different groups with music at Bright Leaf. It should be foursomes and no music on the course. Play golf now, four max in a group, and have your dance party later.

great value

Course was wide open - hard to lose a ball. Greens were good. Short course with little trouble. Several drivable par 4's. Overall, great value for the money. Some fairways were a little too close to others. Although I heard several "fores", I didn't have any problems. Although I did get hit with a ball walking onto the 18th green. It was from the 18th tee - the guy behind us flew it onto the green and it bounced up and hit me in the leg - no pain. I would still play there again - alot of fun.

Fall Golf At Bright Leaf

The course is in excellent condition. You can see your ball from 200 yards away. The greens while a bit slow were a beautiful shade of green. The grounds keeper does a fabulous job.
This course gets it. For the average golfer, hit your shot, drive to your ball and hit it again.
Great time.

Great golf, at a great price!

Great course, always well kept, extremely friendly staff, for the prices you get through golf now you can't beat it. Beautiful terrain and a awesome course to play! I keep returning to the course because the overall amount of respect others golfers on course show (from my experiences) it makes for a very enjoyable round! Thanks Bright Leaf!! P. Tye

Not for the Squeemish

My wife & I have played the 18-hole course now 4 times. I've struggled to break 100 while she has yet to break 120, mostly due to the water hazards and blind green shots. In fact, my wife nearly got hit by a drive because someone teeing off could not see us. Hilly fairways also add to the difficulties for us.

That said, we like the course very much. It's one of the most well-kept and maintained we play in the region.. There are very few trees to impede your play, but severe slopes and neighborhood yards proved to be issues for finding my slices and pulls.

The course is very popular on the weekends so slow play is likely.

Good course

Good fairways. Greens are very good. Was disappointed that they mowed the greens while we were playing causes a 10 minute delay. Otherwise excellent golf for our $15 per person

Charged 20.00 for the old front nine . This course is not worth anything CLOSE to that .

A lot depends on who is in the pro shop . Kevin is friendly and knowledgable , Sherry is friendly but is just a cashier , Helen on the other hand is very unfriendly and always charges PREMIUM prices . I know SEVERAL people that she has been extremely rude to . Many local players do not play the course because of Helen .

And she's that way whether the course is busy or slow. I've been there before with 6 cars in the parking lot and she was very rude. She should have been happy to see someone there to pay and play. Too many other choices in the area to be treated poorly as a customer.

Cheap, But Not Worth It

Beautiful course but they allowed groups of eight to play together. Unbelievable! The way course is laid out you felt you were in danger of being hit by someone else's ball most of the time. Took 5 hrs to play even though playing with people with 15 handicap

Sometimes the staff isn't as friendly as you like, but I guess that happens everywhere. Course is in outstanding condition this year, best in the area.

This was a nice course, but there could be improvements.

I had heard a lot of good things about this course. My brother and I enjoyed our round; however, we had a hard time finding any distance markers. There was some faded marks out on the cart path, but you had to go looking for them. Our home course has a small pvc post in the middle of the fairway marking the 200, 150 and 100 distances. They are removable as to not be in your way if necessary. If more courses had such or at least had them on the edge of the cart path it would certainly be helpful. The greens were in great shape, but very slow. Otherwise, we really enjoyed our outing at Bright Leaf.
