Fun Layout

Great mix of holes and interesting elevations. The staff is friendly. We especially enjoyed the par threes. The greens are big but not particularly fast. In my opinion, it’s a must play.

Maintenance/Upkeep Non-Existent

Auburn Hills really let my group down. We should have known when the range had baskets everywhere, flipped cart stands, and grass longer than my garden. Course conditions were the killing factor - the fairway grass was indistinguishable from the rough, as if it hadn’t been mowed in months. Bunkers were spilling onto grass around them. Tee box markers weren’t being adjusted so tee boxes were torn up. Greens were decent - and the only saving factor from a 1 star. Overall, quality similar to playing a round on your front lawn. And all for $40? No thanks.

Yep. This 100% Add to that the 5.5hrs it took to play 18 holes today along with the "clubhouse" not taking the bait when we inquired about being members and I for one can tell you that there's no chance that we'll ever play that course again and it's a shame.

Auburn Hills could be a really nice change of pace course, they just don't care.

inviting laid back course

Me and my wife love playing different courses. We have visited Southwest, VA multiple times and enjoy the area. We were very impressed with the COVID precautions that were put in place as well as the friendly staff welcoming. The course is wide open, fun with small challenging greens.

Auburn Hills GC

The course played well today. We felt the the rough was cut down a bit too low. With the slope to the fairways sometimes it's impossible to not have a ball roll toward the rough. That by itself is ok but when it's cut too short the ball rolls through the rough into real trouble.
The greens were in pretty good shape. Too bad golfers don't learn how to repair a divot on the greens or in the fairways. That's not the courses fault, they can't keep up with the volume. It's the lazy golfers fault!

Love this track

Love this up and down mountain track. Wide open on most holes, other than the tough par 5s. Lots of chances to gamble and pres too. Greens roll well and are all big time tiered. Loved this place and will be back soon.

Auburn Hills golf club

This is a great course off the main stream. When we played today it was windy and cold but we still enjoyed the course. Lots of elevation changes. Lots of undulations in the greens made putting fun. We'll definitely go back when the weather is better.

Wonderful Course

Very challenging course. Greens have multiple levels and undulations. Also, have to read the "mountain" influence on putts. Fairways could be better, but area has experienced drought conditions. For the money, a great course, friendly staff and great value.
