South Riding Golf Club is nestled in the gentle hills of northern Virginia, enjoying a landscape of hardwood forests and grassy meadows. The course offers a variety of challenges but the fairways are wide and player-friendly and the greens can be tough in spots but overall they offer some room for error. The layout requires both strategy and skill, it is definitely not a golf course where you will be able to just "grip and rip it." The course pinpoints your weaknesses but it is still a fair test. South Riding Golf Club's eighth hole is memorable for its difficulty but it's an interesting hole sine there are many ways to play it. At 351 yards, the hole is a short but intimidating dogleg left that will tempt you to go over the trees. The fairway is generous but the saddle-shaped green is flanked with bunkers.

Great layout

Enjoyed my round, despite the wind and cold temperatures. The greens were in great shape. Fairways had some bare spots, but overall , well worth the price. Thank you Golfnow.

Disappointing

Had been looking forward to playing this course. First time yesterday. Decent layout and good pace of play. But conditions were terrible. Very shaggy fairways and tees. Lost a ball in rough under grass clippings no more than 20 from one green. Greens fees are steep and she be reduced until this course is shaped up.

Shocking Experience

Course was in terrible condition, tee boxes-no grass, fairways-some grass, greens healing from aeration-most damages. How this course got a 4 STAR rating is shocking. Place shows its age-old, very little maintenance evident.
Paid a low rate but would not play again if it was free.
Very disappointing. Club house dated but snack bar food was good. Course needs serious attention and is poorly managed.

Overpriced, poor codition

This course had a decent layout but was not in good condition. Fairways lousy. Definitely overpriced, even considering I got a good deal on Golf Now

Avoid Playing Here

Poorly maintained course; no tee indicators - can easily get lost from one tee to another. Practice tee closed until noon on a weekday REALLY?

course has deteriorated drastically

Tees were in shocking condition.
Fairways were very soft in places but mainly fine. Greens were good but uneven. I fixed loads of pitch marks on each green.
4 hours 45 min for a round. Waiting on every shot. No ranger in sight to move pace of play.
Played 4 years ago but won’t be going back for a while if ever.

Very good condition

It was good condition and well maintained greens. For the price, the course is one of the best in the northern VA area. The condition was much better than last year.

Good value

The course was in good shape. Pace of play was good for a Friday on a public course. It was a lot of fun, we’ll definitely play again. Great experience for the price.
