Nice course layout but fairways are dormant and hard as a brick. No staff on the course during the entire 18. Very slow pace of play for only 6000 yards. They send twosomes out one after the other then jam a foursome somewhere in the middle. Five plus hours was a bit ridiculous. They are obviously understaffed. Wouldn’t recommend it unless you get a deal and there are no other options.
Nice but noisy
Great shape and fun. Lots of houses make for a noisy day with mowers and blowers. Also garbage trucks were loud
Nice course. Narrow fairways , not very hilly, with plenty of water to challenge errant shots. #16 par 3 is a challenge as is #9 a par 4. Front nine is more open than back nine. Due to topography it can be wet after lots of rain.
Very nice course. Fairly short, challenging, but not too bad. Friendly staff and great facilities. Food was good and beer was cold. Only concern was pace of play. There was a foursome of amatures who didnt understand the concept of ready golf and were holding up 4 groups behind them. It took about 4 holes for the ranger to speed them up and thankful for that. Well managed. Putting greens were very nice and fairways were plush. Rough was well kept.
Great layout, fun round
Other than getting stuck behind three gentlemen (whom I was originally supposed to tee off with), thoroughly enjoyed the course and experience
Great course and staff
The proshop attented was very friendly and gave us information on the course sine we nevered played this course before. The course layout was very nice and the course was in very good condition.
Face full of mud
Played this course in late April when I would have expected at least OK conditions. Most of the fairways and tee boxes were mud. I actually found myself moving my ball to the rough to get a better lie. How sad is that! The greens were OK and I enjoy the layout (except the 9th hole - limit tee shot to 200 yards to avoid water and then still have 200 to the green on a par 4??). I wont be back until I see some reviews here that say they have better conditions than muddy fairways and sand/mud tee boxes.
Maybe I was spoiled by playing other nice courses the two days prior to Lake Monticello, but I didn't care about this course at all. There was nothing visually or strategically interesting about the layout at all. The greens were all basically completely flat and unreceptive, while the fairway and tees look like the Bermuda that grows in your lawn after not being mowed for a week. The pro shop wouldn't let me hit balls because our tee time was in ten minutes, even though there was a back up on the tee. There's just no reason to play here.
Great Spot To Play
-Lake Monticello Golf Course is located in rural Palmyra, Virginia, just SE of Charlottesville. For the drive it is very worth it. The staff is friendly and helpful. Food options have increased with a menu revamp at the Hole In One Cafe - Good value. -Course conditions were improving on the greens from their aeration weeks ago. They are filling in nicely and provide consistent roll. The 9th hole is DEFINITELY the hardest to make par on but makes for a fine challenge all the same.
-PGA Family Tees are available so everyone in the family can play.
-With new construction on the clubhouse taking place, watch the signs for cart routing around the buildings.
A wonderful course
If you are in the Charlottesville, VA area, you really should play this course! It was in fantastic shape, was challenging, and the staff went out of their way to make you feel at very comfortable.
Great course - must play
This course is in amazing shape after major renovation over the past couple years. The layout has elevation change and water to challenge any level of golfer. Very scenic and at a great rate. A must play when in Central Virginia.
Not the Golf Course it used to be.
I was a member of this Golf Course back in the 80's when it hosted The Virginia State Open. Back then it was one of the finest courses in the State. Now it is a bit of a disappointment as far as course conditions are concerned.
Many of the Tees and Greens are in poor condition and the fairways are not far behind. WHAT A SHAME!
This course has a decent layout that present challenges, with a good balance of easier holes. The course was in fair condition; however a number of greens were distressed. The staff was minimal during my visit, but the one gentleman was cordial. Decent value.
Great layout. Well maintained.... A very good value.
One of the best values in central va. A beautiful and challenging layout. Great for all skill levels (the blues play tough). Course was in much better condition then I expected. They recently renovated several greens, and they turned out great. I highly recommend giving it a try!
Good course great condition challenging but has plenty of scoring oppurtunities.
First time in 25 years. Good lay-out as in the past.
Greens were in poor condition. Took away from the nice day, Should come back this fall.
