A friend recommended this course and unfortunately it did not live up to the hype. Course was in terrible shape considering the price. Compared to other courses priced in the same range and some even less expensive, this was not a good course. Crab grass growing all around the greens almost made them unplayable. Greens were very soft and seemed as though they had not been rolled in awhile. Spike marks and ball marks made for bumpy putting on all 18 holes. Course does not hold water well either. Had balls that plugged in the fairway. I will not play this course in the near future. Can't believe its part of the Raspberry Trail considering the other courses are not in this condition.

Thank you for sharing your experience. As you mentioned, the summer has been difficult at Bull Run with our recent heat and rain events Repairs to affected areas are underway and will continue into the fall. We look forward to seeing you again as we continue to bring conditions back to level that we expect at Bull Run.

Played this course on a Saturday morning. I was a single and got teamed up with a threesome, who actually plays frequently. Bull Run is a great Course, we teed off at 7:21 and finished our round at 11:15. At times it felt like we were the only ones on the course but that's because of the layout. We never had to wait and we were not pushed from behind. The course itself was in great shape and it requires you to think about each shot. Greens were excellent and rolled true. I would highly recommend Bull Run to anyone, but I would also recommend getting an early tee time.

Nice course, but the pace of play is always terrible. The last time you see anyone from management is when you pay. It seems they don't believe in marshals, you can do whatever you want once you tee off

Great course, well maintained. We have had 8-10 inches of rain the week leading up to the round and the course was in surprisingly good shape. I have played the Bull Run a dozen times and have enjoyed every round. The course is difficult but not impossible, challenging enough to be enjoyable not frustrating!

Nice layout. Fairways and greens in excellent shape. Rained night before round, no standing water...except in traps. Some traps need to be redone. Look forward to playing in dry conditions to check green speeds.

Didn't want to just walk on, so I made a tee time for a single. Evidently, the threesome who I was paired with decided to bring a fourth golfer. So even though I made a tee time, It wasn't honored. The manager said they could change my tee time at their discretion. And by the way, they decided to tell me as MY foursome was teeing off. REALLY! Fortunately for me, a couple of foursomes later only showed up with three so off I went. Otherwise, I might still be standing there.

This was my first time playing Bull Run. I found the course to be laid out well, with a good mix of challenging and easy holes. Even thought I played on January 1, the course was in good shape for winter play. My only complaint was slow play by one foursome that pushed the end of my round into twilight.

The course fairways were punched last week and with that I still gave the course a 4 star rating! Great conditions on the greens and with lift and place in play for the fairways, it was a great round. Holes are visually appealing and varied. Great course and even better if you play in the middle of the week ... 18 holes in 3 hours for a two some who had more than a few shots that we had to look for.
