Pleasant Valley Golf Club sits just south of Dulles airport, but the expansive layout, which is absent of homes, feels much more secluded. The parkland layout tumbles across a diverse landscape of rolling hills and grassy meadows covered with hardwood forests. There is plenty of diversity throughout the golf course with some holes that are bunker-less contrasting with the links holes that have Scottish-style bunkers. One of the most memorable holes is the par-5 fifth. After an uphill tee shot with a bunker on the right and a waste area on the left the second shot presents multiple choices. To the left you could take a risk with trees and a bunker but you could possibly be rewarded with a better angle for the third shot while the right side option will require a third shot over a large bunker to reach the green.

Good track

I’m good shape, rate was good as well. Pace was slow but there are several par fives followed by par threes (and then another par five in one case) so that will log jam any golf course. I enjoyed it, par threes are tough except one pretty easy one. Plays every yard from the back.

Way too crowded

In the middle of the pandemic, golf courses are one of the few options remaining to get outdoors. But this was ridiculous. I quit at the 14 hole after a birdie. Just too much waiting around. There were 3 groups the 15th hole. That’s too many

This course is fairly well maintained and staff are friendly.

We play a three some today. Unfortunately it's cart path only but the fairway is fairly well maintained with only a few patches of muddy areas.

Rough shape for winter

This might be my favorite course in the local area. I love the layout and i know what this course is like when in good Spring time condition. The rain and winter condition has tore this course up. Fairways, tee boxes, and rough in horrible shape. Wish fees were lower based on this. Greens were good though. Bunkers are perfect powder, which is rare. I still enjoy and recommend this course for the character, challenge, and variety of holes. I play tons of winter golf, and rarely have i seen a course THIS beat up. Still recommend... just lower the cost to be fair.

Could Have a Faster Pace

Extremely slow pace! There was a single ahead of us but he refused to join the two-some in front of him, who invited him to play together. I told the marshal about it and he did nothing to help. The single guy didn't care and acted so slowly all the time. By the way, the management company needs to spend some money on maintenance or it will be totally ruined very soon.

Always a pleasure and a challenge. I love this layout. Greens were a little slow, but that is to be expected.

Challenging layout

This course was used to be a good course in Northern VA. But, I gave up Pleasant Valley last year due to the unacceptable course condition.. Today (2019 Nov.) I found that the course condition was much improved even on a cold November day. The difficulties of Blue tee and White tee are significantly different due to the course layout. You will enjoy this course a lot if you select a proper tee.

Very Nice Course

My first time playing this course and I will be back. It's a bit challenging with some blind tee shots but also a fair course. Greens are in great shape and quick. I played on a weekday so pace of play was not an issue. The staff members are friendly. The food choices are the basics you would expect. There is a decent size driving range with some practice bunkers nearby and a good size putting green.

Pace of play was excellent, course conditions rough

I have not played this course in several months. There are some interesting holes with split fairways, etc. so I was looking forward to playing it again. While most of the greens were in decent shape, many of the fairways and tees had bare spots, etc. We hadn't had much rain the past month or so, perhaps that added to the conditions. I would still not hesitate to play the course again, just not at full price.

Thank you for playing and for your review. We are glad you like the layout and the greens. We have been working hard on the fairways and tees. The fairways have come a long way over the past few weeks.
