Not sure if they are doing some upgrades but there is zero signage at any hole and only saw one ball wash in 18 holes. Like I said may be temporary but would think they would leave existing ones until new arrives. Lastly, you don’t go back by clubhouse after 9 so make sure you bring a snack and plenty of beverages.

Easter egg hunt

Great course, too many hills though. Finding your ball is a challenge, the rough is like hay and you’ll loose plenty of balls trying to keep up with the pace of play. The good about this course is you get it to yourself on the weekdays. Not a lot of traffic on the course and takes about 2 hours to play alone

Wonderful Experience

I loved the elevation challenge this course offered. The greens were in good condition considering the heat in recent weeks. If you can’t enjoy this course regardless of score, your not a true golf fan

Nice course

Nothing special other than hreater than normal elevation changes. Tee boxes and fairways in very good shape. Never found a bunker but they look to be well kept. Greens were hit and miss; lots of ball marks not repaired, many holes still not filled in from recent aeration.

keep it in fairway

Almost 5 hours to play. Greens had just been aerated. The rough is long and thick, good luck even finding your ball.

So much for incredible!

I returned to this course because of how beautiful it was the last time I played and how everyone was so friendly. Before I play any course, I always check the dress code to find out if I have to wear a collared shirt. There was no indication on Hanover country Club's website about a dress code, but that didn't keep the head Pro from yelling from about 50 feet away on the 4th tee, that I needed to have a collared shirt on! When I play any course I expect a certain level of professionalism, which was completely lacking in this situation!

Just Amazing!

This course could rival the best courses in Virginia like Kingsmill or Royal New Kent because of the undulation of its Fairways and greens! I was shocked to find a course this close to Richmond that was as hilly as this one is! I thoroughly enjoyed playing today!...and definitely plan to return.

Almost there.

This course is right on the cusp of being fantastic. Greens are great and the tightness of the course makes a nice challenge. Unfortunately the bunkers are in horrible shape as well as a few fairways.

Not maintained, narrow fairways, but if you like

If you like narrow fairways with overhanging tree limbs, if you like hazard areas butting up to greens, if you like hitting 200 ft high uphill onto hard pan and watch your ball roll back down hill, if you like the course to only have ball washers at 1st and 10th tee boxes, if you like consistently barren tee boxes, and if you having a 5-some of loud teenagers to contend with, this is the course for you. The greens rolled pretty well and true and that was the only thing enjoyable. No, I won't be back.

The front nine is vastly different from the back, including weird and wild elevation changes.But other than that it was a fun round.

Use to Love this Course

The fairways are dead and I don't think they can be revived. While the greens are in ok shape the fairways to me are lost. Probably because of all the rain this year and last. I spent the day hitting off of muddy dead pan. When it came to chipping around the greens I just could not get under the ball, no grass. I really hope the staff can turn it around, it is a fun and challenging course to play. Will be back if they can save the fairways. Great food in the club house and staff is very friendly.

Don't waste your time....

There is nothing green on the course except the greens.
The fairways don't have a lot of grass...
The tee boxes don't have a lot of grass...
The course could really really be good if they took care of some things.
There is NO WAY you can rate this course 4-star! No way!

Course needs help...

The only green part of this course are the greens and the yards of the people that live there. Fairways needs grass...
Tee boxes need grass...
This place would be really nice because the course layout is tough.
Currently not worth more than $20
Really really hope this course gets turned around in the right direction.

Good course, great greens, decent price, friendly staff

It was nice to play a course in the Richmond area that isn't a swamp, so I guess the drainage here is pretty good. The greens were great! Fairways on the front weren't great, but they got better on the back and again not a swamp. Layout was decent, one hole had to be an 80ft incline. Staff was very friendly and pace of play was good. I would definitely play here again

Good value

Nice layout. Some big elevation changes, unusual for this area. Nice stretch of holes along the South Anna River. Greens had some spotty areas, since severe drought in the area recently; but putts rolled well. Fairways and rough were a little inconsistent, not great quality; but very playable, especially for the price. Will be a part of our regular rotation when golfing in this area.
