Average at best

Bermuda rough was very high, greens were hairy and uncut, fairways were uncut, overall condition was okay for the season. Your ball could be 10 feet off the fairway and you couldn’t find your ball - even around the greens. For a semi-private course we were disappointed to make the drive. Hanover CC once was a very nice course - now average at best. There are other courses in the area that are in better shape and are more enjoyable to play.

Rough was too thick!

great course, but if you did not hit the fairway, could not find your ball unless you stepped on it! probably be fine after they cut it. I imagine they seeded and fertilized so they can't cut yet!

Fun layout, but...

First time playing Hanover GC. The layout is a lot of fun - lots of hills, some tight driving holes and smallish greens. But, they were top-dressing the greens this morning, which meant the putting conditions were pretty awful. That being said, I’d give them another shot in the future.

Bring Lots of Balls

This is a beautiful course, but the rough is cut so high it’s almost impossible to find any ball you hit in it. It makes it extremely frustrating and the joy of the game is lost pretty quick when you think you hit pretty good shots and balls just disappear like it’s the Bermuda Triangle. When you can’t even find a mishit you shanked 10 yards in front of you, you know it’s time to call it a day and find another course. Probably won’t ever return.

Hanover Golf Club

My wife and I a great time playing the Hanover Golf Club course. We booked our reservation through Golf Now/Golf Pass and got a great deal. The staff was very courteous and professional. Met the golf pro on the driving range (Mr Barber) and he was very pleasant and personable. The course was in great shape and the weather of the charts. I highly recommend this course. Pace of play was spot on for a Wednesday. Great job.

Ridiculous rough

Extremely disappointed with the conditions of Hanover Golf club. Started with the driving range, way overgrown unmown made it tough to practice well. Putting green was extraordinarily slow and we thought that the course greens would be better, they were not. Very overgrown slow and bumpy. # 8 had a temporary green. The bunkers need some serious work. Now to the worst part, the rough was so overgrown and thick that 90% of shots were basically unplayable. US open rough would pale in comparison to the mess we were trying to play out of. It does not make for a pleasant round when you spend half your time looking for your ball or those of your group rather than playing golf. Found a heck of a lot of balls that were not ours. The course had made a nice comeback and am sorry to see maintenance has been backsliding so badly.

Course Conditions

The rough along the fairways and around the greens were high, which made it extremely difficult to find the ball. The greens were very slow because they were not trimmed and smoothed out. Some of the greens had patches of bad spots.

Hanover GC

I would recommend this course to anyone...a very unique course. On the backside of a neighborhood and has a few holes that are like no other in the Richmond area. + the weather was perfect...All-In-All we had a great day and have been telling folks about it since we played.

High rough!

Course was more challenging than usual given the recent aeration of the greens AND the height of the rough. The rough was a real struggle. I couldn't find a couple of balls due to the length. And when I was lucky enough to find one, it was nearly impossible to get it out of there.

I do believe that this is all a result of the recent weather but it sure made for a tougher than usual round. Still, a wonderful day and a nice course.

Pretty Good

My buddies and I booked a threesome for an early morning tee time a week in advance. When we arrived and paid for our round we were informed the course had assigned us a random single player. There was no “oh hey by the way do you mind if a single joins y’all?” It was “we assigned a single to y’all have a nice day”. We’re not the best golfers so our biggest fear was just having some great golfer shooting with a bunch of terrible ones haha.

The course itself is a pretty one. It’s a little narrow but also has a couple pretty wide holes as well. Most of the course was pretty well groomed. I think our biggest gripe was just having a hard time finding our balls in the rough. We clearly could see the ball hit the fairway and bounce out just a little. It could still take us a couple minutes to find the ball hidden away in the tall rough.

Unexpectedly there were a couple holes that had some elevation change to them. Didn’t expect that out in Ashland but it created a nice change up throughout the course.

What happened to your greens???

We’ve been playing here all year & the conditions of the tee boxes, fairways, & greens have been really good until today. It’s been close to 3 weeks since we were out here and I’m guessing the heat & humidity over the last few weeks finally have taken their toll on the greens. I’m not sure they’ll get them back anytime soon.

Always a treat!

I have three favorite courses in the Richmond area, Royal New Kent, Magnolia green, and Hanover Country Club! Yes, Hanover Country Club is in the same category as those other two amazing courses so go out and play it and see for yourself!
