I procrastinated for two years to play Cannon Ridge and now that I finally have, I’m sad to hear it may well be my only time. The course closes to golf at the end of November, so if it’s been on your list to play like it was for me, you better hurry.

The news of the closure is a real shame because the course is a really nice one, I really enjoyed my round here. The layout is dynamic and challenging in a good way with plenty of variety, different shots required and course management to score well. There’s plenty of elevation changes (especially on the hilly back nine) and enough hazards to keep things interesting. Beginner golfers will appreciate the many open and inviting fairways from the tee.

The conditions of the course were very good, especially considering the impending closure, with smooth, even fairways and greens that were in great shape. Tee boxes, rough and bunkers were also generally well-maintained with a few exceptions. I haven’t played Lee’s Hill GC yet but I’d be surprised if the layout and conditions there are better than this course.

The staff was minimal when I played which is probably to be expected at this point. The off-course amenities are standard, pace of play was great once I was able to scoot past the sixsome(!) that tee’d off 20 minutes before me.

I payed $25 for my early morning round so I found this course to be a great value. I live 2 hours away from it but will try to make it out again before they close for good. I will be sad to see it go even though I’ve only played it once.

greens were spotty, fairways nice in most areas. as bare as they were in some spots, they always seemed to roll true. would play again for the value and the weather was absolutely perfect. close enough to 95 to make it relatively easy.

Love this course layout and scenery...played 4 times now was great first 3 times, but now looks like there may be financial issues. Although fairways and tee boxes are still great shape, greens are failing. Some areas of course in play needs to be mowed. Looks like running low on money.

Used to be real nice, it clouds be the weather but, when I played, the couse was in just below average condition In my opinion.

The fairway is good, better than average but the green was way below average as it has lots of burned or dead spots with crab grasses.

I played with hot deal so can't complain much but surely don't want to pay $40 or more to play.

Staffs are always nice there, so feels you are treated right.

This course rivaled the gauntlet for overall ratings in my book. It once had great greens which are not very good anymore. Some rocks in bunkers. Fairways had a little brown but are plush and play great. If rumors are true it won't be open next year, and it seems to be with the money they're not putting into it for maintenance, i will miss it.

Course was recommended to me while vacationing for a week at Lake Anna. I played Saturday and Monday., 19th and 21st, respectively. Both days were reserved at GolfNow, "hotdeals". We were able to tee-off early than our tee time as it was not crowded. Range facilities were included in the price. The course was in wonderful condition from tee-box, fairway to green. Rough was a lot thicker and dense then I am used to, so your opportunity is to keep the ball in the fairway. If not, a lot of balls may be lost. Fairways, literally had NO blemishes. The grass appeared to spongy and thicker. The balls did sit up nice. Being a good ball striker will go along way. As we played the "white tees", a lot of holes was hitting over thick trees and foliage to get to the fairway. If you drive 200 yards or better, you reached the fairways OK. Mishit or pull/slice meant a lost ball. No GPS on the carts. Length of play for us was still 4-4 1/2 hours. The staff for checking-in, concessions and carts, could not have been nicer. The problem with the course was noted to us on Saturday. Cannon Ridge is closing its doors, permanently, at the end of the year, December 2017. Even though the course renovated and re-opened in April 2016, and finally making a good profit the land appears to be more valuable to construction developers. What a shame. I was hoping to play it again when we vacation in Lake Anna, again

The crabgrass has taken over the aprons around the greens. Inconsistent green speeds. Not sure what the grass in the rough is either. Bunkers are mostly unplayable. Bermuda tees and fairways are great. Great layout. I think the course just needs some tlc. Staff was nice. No beverage cart. I played the course regularly when it opened in 04, It is nothing like that course. I played with my 70 year old father and heard about the conditions all day.

This is a great course and I was a bit surprised at the rate for a Saturday at 9AM. The staff is really phenomenal, on a very hot day they made sure all golfers were hydrated and even brought out cold towels.

It's a long course that has actual tee boxes for every skill level (none of this red tee box in a fairway). There was maybe 1 or 2 greens and a handful of bunkers that weren't in great condition but other than that everything is in phenomenal condition. I would definitely recommend it to anyone.

Very fun course. My only gripe is the back nine is very quirky in that you can get penalized for hitting a good drive with downhill or sidehill lies often. Overall still enjoy the course but knowing yardage to certain lies on that back nine is key.
