I've played the course in the past and it was in much better shape. The layout has always been a little quirky, but okay. With the fairways so patchy with decent grass and the greens in terrible shape I was very disappointed. One of the guys in my group got injured on the first hole. There was a hole that he stepped in. Totally understand that it might happen. The unfortunate part was the lack of reaction from the staff.

Guess this will be my last round at this course. No wonder the round was so cheap. I will cough up the extra bucks next time!

It was misty to rainy most of the day so course was wet and slow. Thought rough could have been a little shorter but with our current weather pattern I understand it's hard to mow overall had a great day.

This is a nice course and the staff are always friendly. Make sure you keep it in the fairway. They don't mow the fringe areas as much as other courses so its easy to lose a ball if it rolls off the fairway.

The course was in pretty good shape except for a few greens they were having a little trouble with - I think due to so much rainfall we've had the last few months. There are a lot of up and downhill shots on this course that make it extra challenging. Play usually moves at a good pace on this course - as long as you keep it in the short grass. The roughs are not that high but do seem to hide a ball pretty well if you're not paying extra attention where it went in at. A fun course to play for all levels.

Botetourt has always been an enjoyable course to play. It is a short course by today's standards, but the fast greens always make it challenging. You have to be fairly precise with your approaches. Course has really started to show improvements since the new Pro/GM Dylan Wright has taken over. He is dedicated to making this course a real jewel of the Valley and has a real dedication to the younger golfers.

I've played this course couple times. Tee boxes are rough and need work or alternative boxes. Also, cart paths need alot of work. Other than that the course is good shape. Definitely play there again.

The greens were in great shape, but the tee boxes were patchy and inconsistant. The cart paths were in such bad shape in some places that they were a hazard to both carts and golfers. Fairway condition was average. I like the course, but it could use a bit of tidying up.

I really enjoyed playing at this coarse. For the money you cannot get much better. Definitely a great value! The staff was extremely friendly. The course had some really nice picturesque views of the surrounding mountains. The layout was nice, the course can be challenging with the elevation changes and some difficult greens. It made me me get on my game and be more strategic than I usually have to be. Overall the coarse was in great shape. As some mentioned in previous reviews some of the tee boxes were in rough shape, however it did not bother me at all. I hit my irons off the deck on par 3's and I was able to find a decent spot to hit off. . Again not an issue there for me...Specially for the money. If I was to give any constructive criticism it would be that the cart path is in really bad shape throughout the coarse, pot holes need to be filled in, etc.. Probably a non issue for most people but I have some back issues so the bouncing around was giving me some discomfort and I had to drive on the grass as much as possible. Last word of advise for newbies is to make sure you hit your fairways, the rough is a bit tall and can make it hard to find a ball. Thankfully I kept mine in the fairways except on two drives it rolled off the fairway into the rough, but both times I could not find my ball.

This course had a great layout. The only complaint is that it took 5.5 hours to play 18 because there was 3 groups of members who were playing painfully slow and never attempted to acknowledge that we were coming up to the tee boxes on every hole while they were still there telling stories and teeing off. I will definitely play this course again, but will ask if there are members with tee times in front of us before we tee off.
