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.

Dylan Wright and the new staff make this great and beautiful golf course one of the best golf experiences in our Roanoke Valley. Work on upgrades to the cart paths and the fantastic greens will make the course even better. Keep up the good work!

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.

The tee boxes and fairways are in very rough shape - lots of bare spots. Some tee boxes had no green grass at all. Blooming dandelions were verywhere. Greens were aerated and sanded not too long ago. Greens will be in good shape in a week or two

Had the pleasure of playing this course on a Saturday afternoon. Course was in really good shape and only getting better (the greens had been recently aerated). The greens were quicker than I'm used to and I ran into some problems while putting and chipping. Staff was really friendly. If I'm ever in the area again, I'll definitely come back. I'd love to take another crack at this course.

Our tee time was pushed back 20 minutes however we were given a complementary bucket of range balls for the inconvenience. The range was mostly dirt making it not very good. The course was wide open and pace of play was excellent as was the service.

We live 65 miles from course and after waking to a pouring rain, I was dreading the day ahead. The rain had subsided by the time we left, but then we ran through 2 more downpours on the way. After we arrived at the course, the guy at the counter told us we were good to go after the threesome on the tee. We had one of best days of golf in a long time! Apparently the weather had kept most people away that day and we played without being held up or anyone pressing us from behind the whole round. Even with the cloudy sometime misty day, the course looked good and we did notice some great views. The layout is pretty player friendly even with the hills and doglegs. The course is relatively short, but with my game lately I really enjoyed it. They must have recently had some bad storms and there was some tree damage around but nothing to impede play. A lot of the greens show repaired ball marks, but they rolled great and putted true. We made it through the round and didn't get wet and my friends and I agreed we would be making a return to this enjoyable course.
