Nice Course

I've played this course numerous times. It is extremely forgiving, staff is friendly and the course is always in good condition. Excellent value as well.

Great Round of Golf - Will Play Again

I played this course on 6/16/18. The course was in excellent shape. The front nine was slow but it really picked up on the back. The course layout is diverse - you're forced to hit almost all of the clubs in your bag. I'll definitely be back.

Good, but slow

Enjoyed our round out at Herndon, but there were a few issues. First of all, in front of our 4-some was a single who was put in between us and another 4 some. Up ahead on the course, there were a lot of other groups, but not too many behind us. Why the starter put that single in front of us made no sense, and we ended up waiting quite a bit on the front 9...and no cart girl at all! The back 9 was the same issue. Except this time was because the group of college guys took an absolutely ridiculous amount of time between each shot. We would be hitting our shots into the green as they were teeing off on the next hole, but whenever we got to the tee, they would still be hitting their shots into the green!! We saw a marshall, but he obviously didn't think it was enough of a problem when this group would be taking 2 off the fairway with us waiting behind on the tee box. If I were more of a confrontational person, I would have said something, but it was the first sunny day in a long time around here, and I figured I'd just enjoy my round. The fairways were well kept, and so were the greens. The hole locations on the greens were all so tough! Most were right on the edge of a crazy slope, and made putting pretty tricky. Not much of a gripe there, just an observation.

We will be back to play here, and hope that the round is a bit quicker next time!

Great Muni

Herndon Centennial is my home course, I've been playing it for years but I figured now was as good a time as any for a review. I think its a great course if you want to score. Not too long and nothing too insane. There's a handful of really nice designed holes. My only gripe about the course is that 8-13 tend to drag as they are all par 4's and only 9/10 are really of a different mold compared to 8,11,12,&13. The Par 3's are short but not insanely straight forward, the Par 5's are short but I don't like to go for them in 2 shots unless i hit the perfect drive. The staff is really nice, the value is really good if you are a town of Herndon resident (make sure you mention that you are with a driver's license) but average otherwise. They recently switched the "restaurant" in the club house and its a bit pricey. Definitely better than your average Municipal Course.

Course is in phenomenal condition

Haven’t played golf in about a year. Thursday was my second round in a week in the past year. I love just down the street from Herndon Centennial and it’s always been in fair condition when I have played it. Thursday when I arrived, I noticed the freshly cut fairways. I was impressed and had the thought that the course would be in great condition. That thought was correct. Greens were rolling true and as fast as any private CC I have played in recent years. Definitely going to have to play it again this year before the season is over.

Great layout

Other than the frozen greens, snow and rain, had a great day. Truly enjoy this course, short ,but challenging. The greens are very protected by design and traps. Thanks to Golfnow we got a great rate. I'll be keeping my eyes peeled for another deal at Herndon centennial, can't wait.
