I believe this is my 5th time playing this Course this year. Wish it was close to my home then would play every other day, hey, I got to work on other days:-). The Course is always clean, even at this season with all these leaves. Even lot of rough areas are clean enough to find the ball but if the grass is too tall or in the woods, then you know. Luckily, I don't go in woods or in rough. My distance is short so I don't get in trouble lol. The fairway is really nice, as before I remember but it is getting bit hard as season is changing, still makes good divots. Greens are still fast. They are not perfect but way above conditions compare to other courses. For the rate you pay, it is well worth it. I hope I can go back there soon [its about 52 min distance from me]

Played at here couple times whenever my buddy takes me since it's been a private course. Very nicely maintained course as you expect from private club (not much as $100,000 membership course, but in REALLY, LOT BETTER CONDITION compare to most of public course. Fairway was r wry nice if I remembered but it might be the season, the fairway is about average this time however, the green is still nice, firm and fast. It's kind of tight as you will see trees hugs along the each holes.

Some holes are long and some are short so it's really fun for every handicap. As I've been to lot of courses, it's always nice to see the ball rolls smoothly into the hole, that's the kinda green we all golfers want, right? Go play here if you get a chance!

Never leave this course unhappy. The layout really challenges the right handed golfer, especially if there is a fade (slice) in your swing. Majority of the holes are dogleg left with fairways that lean to the right. Will be playing here quite often, even though it is a bit of a drive from Manassas.

So glad that Golfnow was able to hook up with Lake of the woods. Played here a couple of years ago with a member. The conditions are fantastic, and some of the most friendly people that you will ever meet. Wish it was closer to home. It takes me an hour and twenty minutes to get there, but it is worth the drive. They will be seeing a lot of me in the future.

First time playing. The course is very nice. It was under construction. The first two par 3s were very short on the day I played because of the construction. It is in a neighborhood. You have to continue to cross streets. And there are tons of houses. But over all. The course is very nice. The clubhouse is very nice also. But the grill was down for a gas line install. But I will definitely play again. And refer friends. And hopefully I can eat something off the grill next time I am there.

We played this for the first time although seen it many times driving down route 3. Course was in great shape. Greens were challenging but very fair. Fairways and tee boxes were excellent. Twilight rate with cart was a super deal. I recommend playing this course, I loved it.

I visited this course for the first time and was surprised at the great course conditions. Nice Bermuda fairways and even though the greens had apparently been aerated about three weeks prior and you could still see aeration holes, the putts rolled smoothly on the average-pace greens. Bunkers were just ok--I thankfully avoided most of them.

A word of caution, if you miss the fairway by more than 15 yards (especially left) you're likely to lose the ball out of bounds in someone's back yard. The course is tightly nestled amongst the gated community of Lake in the Woods and I was unfortunately hitting it left most of the day.

The layout itself is nothing spectacular and I was held up on a few holes while a tournament finished up but still finished my round in just over 3 hours. On top of that, everyone I encountered was very friendly. In talking with some of them they mentioned that you likely can have the whole course to yourself on Sunday afternoons, a rarity.

I didn't see a chipping green (though I'm sure no one would have objected to chipping to the putting green) but I did stop in for some lunch afterwards and found the prices on the menu very agreeable (plus breakfast served all day), so high marks for off course amenities.

I wished I lived closer because I would frequent this course more often, would definitely recommend if you are in the area.

This is a gem of a course in Locust Grove that has unbeatable prices in the area. Last year it garnered rave reviews from most of its visitors for its fairways and greens, and this year the conditions are on par with last. While it is challenging, the afternoons are virtually empty so you feel like you own the course and can play alone. The Fareways Cafe has been renovated and food is excellent.

Play this course often. It has a new set of green tees on ab out 1/2 of the holes - so this is a great option for those newer golfers and those who do not always hit a long drive. Score cards reflect the green tee slope and green tee scores can be entered into the VSGA GHIN system.

PGA quality course. Fantastic bunkers. Shot a 68 in a leg cast (just had surgery). Very narrow and challenging fairways. Greens are superb. Front 9 was perfect. Next time I plan to play the full 18!
