A Real Gem - One of the Best in the Area

This course is probably in the best shape of any of the 10 or so courses I've played in the Northern Virginia area (though admittedly I haven't played some of the higher end courses here), especially for the price. Fairways and greens were pristine, though the latter are a little slow. Lots of good food and drink options at the clubhouse. Very walkable course that plays very short with wide fairways and is therefore excellent for beginners. There are a number of nearly reachable Par 4s and easily scorable Par 5s. Note that the white tees are the ladies' tees. The only disappointment for me is that I did not discover this course earlier. Highly recommend for everyone, but especially those looking to gain some confidence on the golf course.

Not bad

Course was in pretty good condition, greens were a bit slow but rolled pretty true. Nice price point, but it was pretty slow, especially for a weekday.

Old Faithful

I have played Herndon many times and the course is always in great condition. The staff is very friendly and the pace of play is usually great. Given the conditions and the price this is a steal in the Northern Va area.

One of the best

Nothing has changed since I was a kid playing here...I mean that in a good way. Always in great shape, fun to play. Definitely recommend. If you haven't played it go play. Great for walking or riding.

Good Choice

Played with two inexperienced members of my family. A good challenge for them because the course is pretty straightforward hazard-wise. If you play from the tips it can be challenging for any level.

Great Winter Day

When the round began, the temperature was in the 30's. Some of the greens were frozen, a new challenge. Overall the course was well maintained, bunkers raked, fairways clean. By the end of the round, the sun was shining and the course was crowded but still finished our round in 3 1/2 hours. Great February day.

Poor greens

Very poor greens and the practice greens didn’t even have holes. Rough all around and looks like they didn’t maintain properly through out Covid. I will not be playing here any time soon. Only thing good about this place is the food. Food is 5 stars
