Sad conditions

Started with a group in front of us taking over 25 minutes on the first hole. It continued with finding the greens we punched an had a disease . It ended when we finished the front in just under 3 hours and decided it was best to cut our loses. Would not recommend this course to anyone

Hello, JP. Thank you for reviewing the course. We apologize for the delay of play during your round. This is by no means the standard we strive to achieve. With an uncharacteristically full day, we work hard to accommodate everyone who visits our course and allow our guest the chance to complete their rounds. With that in mind, we are working to best control pace and allow everyone to finish in a reasonable amount of time. We will continue to look for ways to improve by using your comments as guidance. Thank you for playing Lake of the Woods Country Club. We hope to see you again soon.

Call the Course before you book

Great course for the money, call the course before you book. It’s cheaper than the prices golf now posts.

Course - so so. Staff - awful with one exception

When we first arrived and went to pay the experience with the young man at the desk was enough to make me turn around and leave but most certainly enough that I would not want to return. His disinterest in assisting patrons was amazing even as the line grew outside of the window where they take payment. The starter however was wonderful and she was extremely helpful. The course was what I expected in the middle of aeration season. This is just a fun little course to play if you are down and the lake and want to get out. Served its purpose. With limited choices in the area do yourself a favor and avoid this one.

Bang for your Buck

This is a great course for the price. I have played other course in VA for more money and they are not even close to being in the shape this one is. The layout was very nice as well.

Absolutely amazing! A surprise gem!

Absolutely amazing! A surprise gem! I lucked into playing this course today. It was truly amazing. I enjoyed this course more than any other course this year. Every hole was unique, very well taken care of, and a joy to play. I give this course the highest marks on all categories. If you have the opportunity to play here, it is by far one of the best courses you’ll find in the area.

A Beautiful Day at LOW

The other guys who had signed up for the 11:14 tee time didn't show so I ended up playing alone. I have played LOW quite a few times and find it challenging and well manicured. Today was no exception. I played in just over three hours and had an enjoyable round!
