Awful Conditions

We played yesterday morning and I have to say that the course has really gone downhill, since this spring.

Most tee boxes are full of bare spots and dead grass, most greens have many patches of what looks like black, bare soil (maybe mold?) and little to no grass, land almost all greens have poor aprons. The fairways are in very good shape, as in the past.

I'm not sure what's happened to the superintendent or the maintenance budget, but you'd expect a lot more from a course owned by a nursery chain. I really hope they get it together soon, because when it's in good shape, this is one of the best values in central Virginia.

We decided not to go again until next Spring.

Disappointed in conditions

Played the course 6 months ago and it was in good shape then with good greens. Played today and the greens were horrible. Out of 18 holes, maybe 2-3 greens were acceptable. No grass on some, grab grass on others, pitch marks on most, inconsistent grass length, etc. Would not recommend to anyone. .

Amazing Layout Terrible Course Conditions

First off the layout and design is amazing WaterfallI/Island was the courses that I played.... Oh but the conditions dandelions and weeds every where and general maintenance of the fairways very poor. I think for the prices that they charge they would put more detail and care in the course. I hope they step up the maintenance of the course because it is an a great layout and I like the staff.

Pace of play was very slow

Pace of play was very slow not sure what happened but as we teed off we had 8 players in front of us and would not pick up pace after Marshall had talked to players it normally takes 4 1/2 hrs to play but almost 6 hrs on a weekday afternoon it was ridiculous...
I know the starter/Marshall was also getting frustrated with players cuz they were just laughing at them and saying whatever..
it was only 2 of us and we play here a lot cuz it’s a home coarse for us

Come On Guys Do Better

Played this course again yesterday. Course was the same, but it was unbelievable how many people were congregating in large groups, players were riding 2 to a cart, and the whole place seems WAY too cavalier about COVID-19. It’s like they don’t care, they are just pumping players out still. As a business they should be ashamed of themselves.

Public Golf

First time playing. Lots of gimmicky holes. Rough conditions. Needs a lot of work. Lots of people standing around in groups (kind of upsetting with Covid-19 in the area).

Driving range and some practice facilities.

Had a good time with family.

Thank you for coming out and playing, we are glad you had a good time. We are working hard to get everything in great shape which will improve more when it gets warmer and the grass can start growing again. We are keeping a limit to how many can be in the clubhouse and doing our best to work with our guest to try and discourage hanging around the parking lot or at least to remember to keep that 6 foot distance. We want to keep everyone safe and still offer some fun exercise through this time . We are keeping everything sanitized constantly. If you have any more concerns please reach out to us, we are happy to get any suggestions that can help keep everyone safe.

A fun track

This is really a fun track to play with your friends. Very nice layout with ups and downs. It’s pretty open but challenging with very nice scenery. The holes are moderately to very challenging and the pace of play, on this day, was very good. Given the time of year the course is in pretty good shape but could definitely use some work. Overall it was fun, fun, fun.

Downhill Fast

Been playing this course sparingly over the past few years. Have never really enjoyed it, but this past round was horrendous. The greens are terrible. There are weird bare spots or weeds on a lot of them. They were not putting very smooth at all. A lot of the fringes are bare. Fairways were in decent shape, and the tees were hit or miss.

The course is very gimmicky, which I guess is what they market towards. Unfortunately, it seems like a lot of poor golfers go there, because it took us almost 6 hours to play 18 holes. We were waiting 10 mins on every tee box. Felt like the starter wasn’t concerned about pace of play.

For new golfers: Greens are small and tough to hit. A lot of blind shots that if you don’t know the course, you will be in trouble.

My suggestion: Play somewhere else.

Fun

This is a very fun course to play great landscaping and some unique hole layouts. Included with the island 9 is a practice hole to warmup before keeping score. The par 6 is challenging but not impossible to par with strong 2nd and 3rd shots.

Lesson Learned

Course was in poor condition. Several holes closed with makeshift greens. For example, par 3 green was what looked to be a tee box and if your ball landed on it, it was counted as a birdie. Not a real green.

Will not go back.

Very Interesting and challenging

Played Waterfall and Longest courses. Course layout very good, with reward for staying in fairway. Greens were a little wet so not a lot of roll out and plenty of mark repair to do. Greens were a four of five with good sloping but thin in a few places. No warning signs for pond on Longest hole, so know there is one at the dog leg right. Reasonable Saturday pace of play, weather overcast and no beating sun, fortunately. Staff friendliness is a six of five!
