The course was wellmpriced and pace was good. The greens were the fastest I've ever played. Like cement. They need to be aerated and the hole locations were brutal.

Very difficult greens this time of year. Many pin locations require you to drop the ball or it'll run 20 feet past. Even full spinning high shots wont stop. Be prepared to putt or you'll feel the pain of circus mini golf.

Course was in great shape, and this was the first time I have played here that they had the grass range open! I'm sure they have the grass range open, but I usually am not able to play when they have it open. It was in great shape, and enjoyed using the grass. Chipping area was also in great shape! We played on a Saturday afternoon, and the course was EMPTY. The weather was great when we started, but was rainy by the time we got to the 14th or 15th hole; maybe that was what was putting people off. Whatever the case may be, we did not see a SINGLE PERSON out on the course. We played as a 4-some, and were able to take our time on all the holes, and still finish in less than 4 hours. The fairways were still in good shape, and greens were rolling true and quick. They really do take care of this course all year long. I will certainly be back to play in the winter months! When this course is as cheap as Westpark or Brambleton, and I am only 10 minutes away, it is certainly a no-brainer! Well done, Raspberry Falls!!

Teed off at 415 as two ball and played 13holes before we caught the earlier tee times off. We then faced a choice wait or go in. When will people learn that 5 hrs for a round of golf is too long. It is killing our game. I watched 2 groups take 25 mins on hole 18 alone. Totally unacceptable. So the course was great as always but to only get 13 holes in with no hope of finishing before dark is disappointing.

I've had the pleasure of playing Raspberry Falls a handful of times. While I personally prefer to walk when I play golf, which Raspberry Falls is walkable, I've thoroughly enjoyed each and every round at Raspberry.

While the fairways aren't too overly tight, the layout is somewhat challenging with surrounded greens on many holes and very difficult green side bunkers. There are a number of picturesque holes with elevated tees that hit down a couple hundred feet into the fairways with mountain views in the background.

One of, if not the, Northern Virginia's best public courses -- most certainly recommend for any golfer that hasn't had the privilege of playing or anyone looking for a challenging, well maintained and beautiful course.

If money isn't a big deal, or you catch a deal on golf for $80-$90, then Raspberry Falls is a great place to play. There is a country club atmosphere, in a public setting.

When you pull up, a vested valet picks up your clubs in the parking lot and takes them to your cart. The pro shop is well stocked with quality merchandise, and the gentlemen in the back may have a tad bit more "attitude" than needed, but it wasn't a rude experience. In other words, maybe lighten up a little...

The driving range is free to warm up. If you could hit off grass instead of mats, it would be perfect. But it's very nice to go out hit, and not have to worry.

The course is beautifully laid out, in great condition, and challenging from the Blue tees as I am a 14 handicap. I would say right now in the NOVA area, this is my second favorite choice to play now. Stonewall is still #1.

A true GEM of a course. I'm in the process of playing at least 1 Course in every state. Originally I had planned to play another course in this area, but read some reviews regarding Raspberry Falls, I changed to play it. Best Decision. This course is very well manicured and maintained. The fairways and tee boxes were quite immaculate, but for me the greens are the best thing at this course, they are fast and roll true to the undulation, which is quite a lot. There are some blind shots, however not too many to affect your round. You definitely need an range finder on this course to help navigate certain shots. I teed off at 4:00 in the afternoon and completed my round at 7:45. So the pace of play was good, especially after our group got around a 3some who was taking their time. Course marshals could definitely help there. I am very happy that Raspberry Falls represents Virginia for my 50 state tour. Highly Recommend this course.

Took nearly 6 hours to play 18 holes mid afternoon on a Sunday. The twosome that got paired up with me and a friend even left after the 14th hole; it was that slow!

Great layout, Gary Player design. Some of the bunkers were still flooded (due to severe rain in the D.C. Area) the last two days.

My wife and I liked the course and practice area. We arrived and was immediately greeted by someone with a cart for our clubs. After checking in to the clubhouse, we hit the range and were happy to find a well-maintained practice area. Once our tee time was nearing, the starter came over and greeted us and let us know when we needed to be at the first tee. We stopped in to have lunch at the clubhouse and the food was well-prepared (typical clubhouse fare) - the onion rings were great!. All in all, we had a good time and will play it again!

From the remarkable layout to the top-tier conditions, friendly and attentive staff, exceptional practice facilities, and a very reasonable price, there is no area in which Raspberry Falls does not excel.

This is a Gary Player design and there’s no doubt the legendary South African can design a great golf course. I’ve played nearly 1,500 different holes of various golf courses and Raspberry Falls holds four of my absolute favorites: the par-4 3rd, the par-5 11th, the par-3 13th, and the par-5 18th. There are several other features from other holes that I really love, especially the deep bunkering around many of the greens. With a relatively flat landscape, rolling undulations on the fairways and greens, tall native fescue on either side of many fairways, and numerous pot bunkers, the course has a Scottish links feel to it even if it plays nothing like one. Depending on which of the five tee boxes you choose you may have several forced carries, fairway bunkers, and bodies of water which may alter your club selection or aiming target.

Many golfers in this area have a strong opinion on courses built around housing developments, but apart from driving through one to get to the course, once you get on the course the houses are few and far between.

The maintenance crew at Raspberry Falls do a great job keeping the course in fantastic shape. I played on the hottest day of the year with the heat index well into triple digits and the course played beautifully. The greens were semi-fast with just enough break to make a long made putt satisfying. The course is very popular and gets heavy use, but even still the greens roll mostly smooth and there are signs encouraging everyone to repair ball marks, which is nice. The tee boxes were well kept and the rough was lush and even. Some of the bunkers had a different type of sand but none of them were particularly difficult to get out of despite the steep banks on many of them.

The staff is incredibly friendly and attentive, only Westfields Golf Club in Clifton has a better one. There’s a starter, rangers, and cart attendants that even wipe your clubs down for you when you get to the 18th green, a nice touch.

The aforementioned facilities are truly exceptional with free range balls, a nice putting green, a separate chipping/pitching green complete with a large bunker, three dozen balls, and a ball collecting tool. The clubhouse is also really nice.

Pace of play is pretty good for this area and this style of course. I was actually the last scheduled tee time at 4pm and playing by myself it took me 16 holes to catch up to the next group. Maybe I just got lucky; it was very hot.

This course can be very expensive for a lot of people but the rack rates are very reasonable for the quality of the course and they do have some great GolfNow pricing, especially on short notice. I cannot recommend this course highly enough, it is a must-play for anyone within an hour of Leesburg--I drive two and it’s absolutely worth it!

Used to live in the area and always enjoyed Raspberry Falls. It's been a couple years but is still a nice course to play.

It's a little pricey, but very much in line with upscale golf in the DC area on the weekend.

Greens had been punched some time back and were mostly healed but they were still bumpy. That's about it for the negatives on the course. Fairways and tees were in very good shape. So the course is in good shape but considering it's mid-April in Northern Virginia, I have to give course condition high marks.

The course layout is great. Spread out, but great. Not a fan of houses on a golf course but the houses here are so far removed from the golf course that none of them are in danger, even from the wildest golfer. And it is a beautiful track with scenic views...
