Long, hot summer
Like many courses in Northern Virginia, this summer of excessive rain and high temperatures took a toll on one of the best courses in the area. I have seen conditioning at this course in much, much better shape. Course is still better than many in the area. I hope the spring growing conditions will allow the staff to bring this course back to its full luster for 2019.
Course is in rough shape right now due to a overly saturated summer. Wouldn't pay full price for it right now. Got a great deal with a Hot Deal. Was cart path only so the round took 4 1/2 hours. Course should shut it down and restart next year. Would normally recommend but not in current condition.
Great track but poor condition
Course seemed to suffer from overplay and wet fall conditions. Fairway turf was thin and rough was half bare on back nine.
Great experience all around
I recently spent the day at Westfields. I demo'd and purchased a new 3 wood (Callaway Rogue Subzero), then head out for a round. The demo/ fitting lab is top notch. I will exclusively use them for all of my club purchases moving forward. I chose to not use the Trackman, but they have that whole set up there.
The course is fantastic and is in good shape. It does get a lot of play, but they do well to keep it up. The was a tournament the day I played, so it was a little choppy on the greens, but not too bad.
Overall, Westfields is in my top 5 DMV courses, and I look forward to coming back soon.
Greens need work
The course will always be a top 5 public course within an hour of downtown DC, and a top 3 in Northern Virginia with Raspberry and Stonewall. Friendly staff. Can't tell you the last time the grass tees on the range were open.
My one complaint is that the greens currently look like they belong at a muni. Quite possibly the effects of overplay.
Best Public in DC Area
Westfields is 20 years old, and remains the best in the DC area. At 100 degrees today, it was a challenge to be out there, but their amenities helped - iced towels, water to drink on every other hole, and a good pace of play.
The course is great- the front 9 is a challenge, so make sure you've warmed up. If you can make it through the first 8 in good shape, then its time to have some fun and score. But if you're in the trees, don't take the hero shot - get it back on the fairway and get back.
So, I'd suggest anyone looking for a classic tree-lined layout to take the drive out to Clifton, VA and have a great time at Westfields.
Finally, they've often got deals on their website, but they are temporary. Jump on them!
Country Club Feel and Promoter of Jr. Golf
I had to make sure that I wrote this review before I moved on and forgot. Besides being (in my opinion) the best laid out and maintained public access golf course in the area, the atmosphere and staff friendliness/professionalism at Westfields is 2nd to none. From the moment you park and a staff member arrives at your car to take your bags from when you finish and the staff cleans your clubs and drives them out to the bag drop you feel like you are a member of a top notch country club. Another little touch is that there is no extra fee for range balls and they are just waiting for you at the very nice range. I can go on and on.....But, the best thing that I just discovered is there policy that kids (15 and under) play FREE after 3:00 with NO hidden charges (e.g. Cart fee). They are totally free! A lot of courses talk about growing the game for our youth, but Westfields is walking the walk also. I got to play 36 this weekend (Saturday with my 14 year old, Sunday with my 10 year old) and didn't get in trouble with the wife at all! I'll be back many times this year. Thanks Westfields!!
Really awesome place
I love this course. I've never been sure why but this course just speaks to me to an extent. It's beautiful, the starters I've had here have all been awesome guys who've talked a lot with me and we've always gotten along. The bunkering is really pretty, and they are challenging but fair. This course is more strategic compared to a couple other of the higher-end courses in the area. I played when there had been a scramble earlier in the day and the course conditions were still great. I love this course and its a great experience. Go play it!
