Things are improving at the course. Its great that its open and with time it could be a fun course to play.
Recommend changing course layout
This is a decent course but I am not a fan of the layout particularly holes 3 - 6.
Good day at Somerset Farms
Very nice round, though pin placement on 9th hole was on the hillside of the green - unless you holed your putt, there was no shelf for the putt to stay on, it would roll all the way back.
Dad and Asher
Took my 6 year old for his first experience on a golf course. The condition of the course is much improved over the previous year. I have always loved the layout and I am glad to see the improvements!
Fun Course, Good Value
Fun course that's in pretty good shape, given how late it is in the season (late October). There are a bunch of short Par 4s that provide good scoring opportunities if you can keep it in play. Very reachable Par 5 (#8) that'd probably be a Par 4 if it weren't for three crossing creeks splitting thing up. Greens are small-ish but in good shape.
Obviously lots of work going on. Looks great , staff is very friendly and helpful. Highly recommend
Foursome I played with played from senior tees. Very short, several lay-up holes. Greens tough to hold but fair. Greens also recently sanded and quicker than last time I played.
Poor golf course described as great
This course was anything but good. Me & two friends went to play this course on a beautiful Saturday morning. The course conditions were very poor with the greens conditions laughable. We were told by the course ranger that the course had just been redone and the group involved in the renovation were really trying to create something nice. It was very clear that the renovators just wanted to put a course together with no pride in their work. Fairways were not cut well & the greens had dead spots all over. Not only was the course in terrible shape the course staff was very very rude. We paid for 18 holes but because they had a kids clinic going on we were only able to play 9 holes with no refund. We were told our $40 round was only for 9 holes when online it clearly said 18 holes. It was a slap in the face after playing in such poor course conditions. I would not advise a single person to play here’s unless the price is around $20 for 18 holes. With The course conditions and the staff I would rate this course a .5 star if I could.
Making a come back
Overall the course is in good condition. I feel the management co is trying to make the course better.
Employee in clubhouse refused to wear a mask when asked
Mike, working at the front desk, refused to wear a mask when asked. We reminded him that the governor mandated masks, but he refused to wear one, saying we could wear one, but he would not. He then said he did not want to discuss it, any further. After some time, he refunded our money and we left.
The golf course was a lot of fun! Greens were in great shape, much better than other courses in the area. The staff is always very friendly and personable. The food was fresh and fast. Great people and a great family atmosphere at Rapidan.
DO NOT PLAY HERE!!!
ABSOLUTE WORST TRACK IN VIRGINIA - BY FAR! THE PEOPLE AREN'T MUCH BETTER! RUDE, TONE DEAF, ETC.... GO PLAY SOMEWHERE ELSE!!!
Thanks for your review. We have been closed wince April 20th to keep our staff and players save from COVID-19, so we know this is not a legitimate review.
I'm also curious as to why you would leave a review Mr. Jones. Let's look at the situation that occurred:
You were caught playing golf on the course while it was closed, and became upset that we asked you to leave. You then threatened our associate, asking him to come over and see you at your house.
While you may live adjacent to the golf course, the property is PRIVATE. It does not give you the right to play any time you want (including with your walk cart you keep on your back patio).
Please stay off of Rapidan Golf Club's property.
still open and playable
The course has 2 holes closed till the spring, so you most play 2 hole over again. This is not a problem since its winter and not busy.....course still needs work but for the right price its OK...
Hi limagolf3. We appreciate you taking the time to review the course and rate us. We are going to pass on your feedback to the teams in charge so they can work to make changes. Thanks for visiting Rapidan Golf Club. We hope to see you again in the future.
