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
course was very soggy and a inconsiderate grouo 2 aheas of. me slowed pace kf play to a stand stull . also ckurse was siaked and had ruts in the faireays from mower's
Reviews were spot on. Enjoyed the round
My glowing review of Dogwood Trace is undoubtably influenced by the fact that I played the best round of my life with my two brothers, who I seldom see. We were in Richmond for my daughter‘s wedding, and made the trek to Petersburg to play here I chose this quote because of the reviews on Golf Advisor.Due to a dire weather forecast, we were virtually alone on a Friday morning inOctober. We ended up being rained on on the back nine, but the course was in good shape and we soldiered through. As some reviews indicate, balls would sometime disappear in the rough. But it was the nature of the grass, and not uncut grass. All in all, the course was in great shape, staff were accommodating, I had a around I will never forget.
Stay out of the rough
This is course is awesome . Great value challenging and great layout. But the only bad thing is the rough is so thick that it is very easy to lose your ball even if u inches off the fairways u literally have to walk right up on the ball to find it slows pace of play . But it challenges u to hit fairways
A group of eight was allowed to play as a group the entire 18 holes. I reported this to clubhouse 3 times during the round. If they were approached they did not heed the warnings. Not only did they remain intact, but did not play fluently as a group. All 4 carts would park at each individuals ball and wait for that player to hit his shot before moving as a group to next shot. Play was extremely slow. They allowed a two player group to play through, but would not allow my group of two to do so. I could guess as to thier reasoning, but dont want to speculate. I myself have been approached as to rules violation ie., close to greens, 90 degrees, etc. No problem with compliance. I feel as i should be afforded same courtesies during my round. Raises a question, if i bring a large group would we be allowed to play 18 as group or asked to leave. My military retiree group would not mind a discussion with management about this incident. Truly dissapointed
