Nice layout. Challenging course but fair to all playing levels. No tricky blind shots.

Will definitely play again when in area.

New Management

I stopped playing Auburn under the previous management because those people were just down right rude. Since the new owners took over, what a difference. Very nice people, very accommodating with everything.The course stays in great shape and I now try to play there every week.The only reason I did not give 5 stars is that the water stations could be better maintained. If it's hot out they're empty, if it's not hot out they're are not empty but the water is warm.

Great course for the money

Played on a rainy Saturday, but course was still in great shape and played nice. Both tight and open holes, long and short. Very much a risk vs reward course. Will certainly be back many more times.

Great Shape

Been playing a lot of golf in the area and this course is by far in the best shape out of all of them. I'm looking to play this course again in the near future and hopefully several times this summer.

A must play

I recommend to anyone in the western portion of Virginia to go and play Auburn Hill. The Owners and staff are some of the best people you will ever meet. The fairways were in excellent condition and the greens ran smooth and true. The architect did a great job carving this course out of the rolling hills. If you are of fan of Pete Dye designed courses, though this was not one of his, it would have done him proud. A must play!!!

Good Layout Great Value

My wife & I played this course on the way to the Blue Ridege Parkway. The conditions were very good,. Fairways were very nice rye grass. The greens were good, fair and nice speed. Course layout was ok, had trouble on some of the distances on the par 3's, not sure the markers were accurate to the center in f the greens. Overall it was a good course and an enjoyable day.

Disappointed

Hubby and I had played here early summer last year and decided to head that way again after I found a prepay deal at $30. KUnfortunately, that price was far too high for the conditions of the course. The fairways were in horrible conditions - very little grass and my clubs took a beating all day. Many of the greens were like putting on outdoor carpet ... Ball was taking crazy bumps and angles. I really hate to give bad reviews but out experience was just terrible.

Nice layout

I really liked the course layout. Holes vary from wide open to narrow and tree-lined. Relatively short course but very enjoyable.

Greens in pretty good shape for a dry August. Other aspects were OK, but not great.

Kinda disappointed in the $43 rate by booking via GolfNow. My playing partners got to play for less.

My favorite SWVA course.

I've played here 4 or 5 times in the past year or so and my brother in law tells me it's relatively new management, that this place used to suck. NOT ANYMORE! The course was in terrific condition and the staff are so incredibly nice and friendly it's almost odd. This is easily my favorite course in it's price range and I try to convince everyone in my party to go here when I'm in town. (I live in Charlotte, NC - visit Salem/Roanoke area once or twice a quarter to visit family and/or golf). Auburn Hills rocks!

Hilly course - tricky greens.

A very pretty course with a nice layout. Had a hard time on front nine with the undulating greens (kept leaving approach in wrong spot or on wrong tier). Adjusted well on back nine and shot even par.(Back nine has 3 par 5's & 3 par 3's)
