Great game

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.

Wet weather
Used cart

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.

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.

First Time Playing

Dogwood

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"

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

First Time Playing

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

Rules application

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
