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.

Beware the rough

Tees, fairways and greens very good. My only criticism is that the rough was too long, and there’s a lot of it. So much, in fact I’m sure it’s a huge undertaking to keep it mowed.

The course was in great shape and pace of play was not rushed. Really enjoyed the time spent. Club house staff were courteous and professional.

Nice!

This is a good track! We played after a weekend of rain. Soggy but not bad. Greens were spotty due to people not fixing divots, but nice and putted true. Roughs were a little long, but they couldn’t movw due to rain. I’m going to play it again in two days when it’s dryer and expect it to be great.

South Riding review

this course has been in my rotation (I am not a member anywhere) for over 12 year now, and while I believe it is priced rather high on weekends, it is an enjoyable course to play. Staff is always friendly and courteous, they really do their best to keep the course in good shape (with the very hot Northern VA summers and wet fall season this can be quite a challenge). The driving range is decent, and the practice green is usually a good indicator of the actual greens. All in all, the course is worth the trip if you get a good deal thru a tee time website.

Fun midweek round

Course conditions were really good as the grass has now come in after the winter. Fairways were nice and dry and it was nice to see the ball bound down the fairways after a well hit ball. The greens were also in decent shape and rolled quick. Some really tricky pin positions out there. The sand in the bunkers was also nice as they were working on them last season. Some of the tee boxes were a bit furry and hoping that isn't the norm. Otherwise, it was a solid day and my playing partner and I got around in 3 hours; pretty wide open! Will be back.

Good Spring round

Always friendly staff, nice layout, course is in nice shape, rough needs to fill in more evenly. traps are in nice shape but about half as many as course used to have. greens in nice shape too.

Rough winter but great layout

First time playing the course and I'm excited to go back when it dries out. Course was closed the day before due to snow so my expectations were low. Lots of standing water on the course but the greens rolled well, the layout is fun and I definitely plan on going back.

Mixed review

Look - the course is great. Best bunkers around and the greens are good but fast. My only complaint was that we booked the round and started at 9:30. Made the turn at 11:45 and all day the pace wasn’t bad - we only saw one group in front of us. At the turn - there were three groups on 10 and one group waiting. One or two people were walking. They also had a tournament at 1:00. So it was overbooked. We paid for 18 but had to leave because we couldn’t bear to wait 20 min at every hole. We did wait 20 min at the 10th to see and there was no way it was going to be less than 3 hours!!! So basically we lost half a round.

Fun day

Great staff! They let us go off the back and saved a slot for when we turned. Great greens given that it’s pre-season. Cool layout, great value.

Freezing Thanksgiving round

It was 29 degrees today with a wind chill of 17. It was brutally cold, but I knew the course would be wide open since it's Thanksgiving so I decided to give it a go. The staff was great and got me out quickly with no issues. There was a foursome who just teed off and weren't even off the tee box yet.. Rather than letting me play through, they proceeded to hack up the place, so I went around them. On a normal day, I would expect a marshall to push me through. No biggie today. The course was in great shape. The greens were immaculate. The layout forces you to make good choices off the tee or be punished. There are various hazards and obstacles to contend with, which I appreciated. Some of the greens have tremendous undulation and a few of the pin placements were a little ridiculous. All in all, I enjoyed the course. I do wish they'd repaint the yardage markers on the cart path and have a few more markers throughout the fairway. The cold weather killed my range finder's battery so I was left guessing a lot. I'd come back and play again for sure though.

Wow - you survived those temperatures! Thank you for the review and your comments. We will be repainting the cart paths with yardages in the spring. Hopefully the next time you come to play it'll be a little warmer!!
