Nice staff. Great course
Driving south for a trade show in Richmond. Booked a hot deal. Have myself 2 extra hours to get past dc. They closed a highway and I was stuck. For 2 hours. So late. Called and they were so nice. Pushed the reservation and allowed me no additional expenses.
Course is in best shape I ever played. 3/4 other times here but best. Rain has made fairways perfect and greens true. Fun round and will be back. Always a fun, challenge.
If in Petersburg and you want to play Golf...
The staff understands Golf, and so they get you checked in and you are on your way. They will match you up if you are you single or twosome. The layout is fine and so are the conditions. The par three‘s are strong, but there are also some par fives that are reachable. No frills in the pro shop or the grill, but you can get A drink and a hotdog, And a hat or a shirt. They do a lot of outings, so just give a call before you get there to make sure that they are open for play. I’ve played this before when in town, and I will play it again when I am in town.
Thought we were going to be rained out. Got to the course, just a little sprinkle. Hit some range balls, range grass was in great shape. Course allowed us on the fairways to use good judgement in wet areas which we did. Course was a bit wet but in great shape considering. We avoided the rain and played fairly quickly. Had a good sandwich at the turn and finished the round with very little issue. Great time. Greens and fairways in great shape. Bunkers were packed due to rain. I am a bit worried about the algae on the greens for the future. Need more beer selection.
Thank you for your review, rickronnie. We will pass along your positive experience to our team at Dogwood Trace Golf Course. We look forward to seeing you again soon.
Greens were a bit slow, bunkers needed some attention but Dogwood rarely disappoints. Tough par 3s, tough back nine, good rolling greens and some actual roll for the first time anywhere in years it seems. Greens were a bit tough due to a lot of bounce and not taking chip spin but very playable. Wish they had alcohol in the clubhouse but maybe someday. Overall always good

Greens are outstanding considering the high volume. Kudos to Greenskeeper and staff.
Thank you for taking the time to review us HisWill1st. Your feedback is valuable, and we look forward to delivering you excellent service again soon. Dogwood Trace Golf Course thanks you!
I have always had a great time playing this Course and will play it again. It was a beautiful day to get out. That being the case, it was kind of slow with all the people who had the same idea to play today. The Course is well conditioned and great practice. I would definitely suggest playing there to anyone who likes to play.
Mushy, mush mush
It was about the best you could hope for considering the unstoppable rain that has plagued us for the last 2 years it seems like. Dogwood is a low lying course and it showed. It was hard to find a reasonable area to hit from but the greens were in good shape and rolled well. The driving range was closed, understandable. I've always liked Dogwood Trace and it has been very good. There was no way this or any other course was going to be anything but wet.

I got a excellent price on golf now for a 12 noon tee time. The course was a little wet but overall pretty good for this time of year.
Wet but Enjoyable
Play here on regular basis. Winter had been very wet, very wet so far. Layout holding up well but worry that all rain/snow will result in winter kill. Time will tell....try Dogwood if you get the chance!
Thank you for leaving us a wonderful five-star review despite the rain conditions. We have every confidence that the course will recover nicely. Please come and see us again soon!
Course playes we’ll! Four stars
Very nice place to play a round for the price, will play another round soon.
Moderate winter day.
Good temperatures for play and for all the rain, it was in pretty good shape. Staff was very accommodating and the greens were in the best shape I’ve seen lately
All in all it’s still a favorite course in the area.
Played for first time and probably the last. Course fairways were very muddy and greens were very different for each hole in terms of speed and upkeep. Had a confrontation with another golfer who played in grey basketball shorts who threatened us with a golf club. Golfer should have been thrown out of facility but was not and finished his round. Golf marshall was not helpful in confrontation and I question professionalism of course. For all other future golfers I hope this was just a bad day for the course and not "par"
We're very sorry to hear that you had a poor experience with us. Confrontations are very rare here and we have every expectation that your next round would be a vast improvement.
Course was wet which is understandable with all the rain we’ve received!
Considering all the rain we’ve received the course played very well. Some wet spots where you needed to move your ball if you found yourself in or around them. Otherwise the course was very enjoyable.
Ok if you play it cheap
Overall not a bad course. It has been wet so they have moved some of the tees way up which makes playing some holes really nice.
The front is a better layout than the back but overall a nice course to play just don’t pay full price
