OK for fall golf

Course was being over seeded so no carts in the fairway. With 2 in the cart if you are on opposite sides one person does a lot of walking. 90 degree rule would have been much better. Course was in OK shape for October. Nothing open to get food or drink before or after round.

Won't go back

Showed up at the course and was met by a staff member at the bag drop. Was told ' sorry but we can't get you out because we have an outing going on.'.
The staff member said he saw that I booked online but they forgot to block out the tee times for their outing. Absolutelyy no attempt to correct their mistake or offer anything for my inconvenience of coming from out of town to play their course. Just an oh well. Luckily the folks at Ole Monterey were more than happy to accommodate me with a tee time at the last minute. I will not go back to Blue Hills . They obviously don't care about getting my business.

First Time Playing

Great track

This was my first time playing this course. It was in great condition. The greens were in great shape and rolled true. The course would be great for all levels of golfers and the scenery was spectacular. I would recommend this course to anyone.

Disappointed upon arrival

I arrived for my tee time for 18 holes only to be told that we could only play 9 due to groups in front of us. The guy working said that it is wrong online and there should not be tee times past 4:30 despite me playing there multiple times after 4:30. He mentioned noticing our tee time earlier in the day and knowing we wouldn’t be able to play 18, it would have been the considerate thing to do to let us know that ahead of time before I used my one day of the week at work I can leave early. I politely asked to start on the back to get in 18 holes and he said no and wasn’t friendly about it. After the first couple of holes of waiting at each tee box for 5+ minutes I began to understand why we could not play 18. That is until we finished the front 9 and began to head back to the clubhouse and realized there was only golfers on hole 10 and 17. If we would have started at 10 as requested we could have got 18 in. I have a feeling the person working did not want to stay late enough for us to play. I’m very disappointed and will not be returning here for my after work rounds of golf. There is another course in the area that offers pairs for $44 on Tuesday despite having a league and start the pairs on the back 9. I will go there from now on, cheaper, friendlier staff, and reasonable solutions. Very disappointed in this experience

Always a good day at Blue Hills.

A fun course for average golfers like me. Few forced carries and bunkers that rarely come in to play unless you really hit a bad shot. Makes for a relaxing day of golf.

One of my favorite courses.

They keep the course in great shape. Greens roll good, fairways have nice grass, and they keep the roughs at a playable height. I'd join if I lived in the Roanoke area. Only complaint would be beers are a little on the expensive side.
