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.

The course has a good layout. Fairways are well maintained and the rough was not to heavy. The greens at this time of year were hard but tested you on your putts.

The course is full of green and is located in a great place near Dulles Airport. It was great winter golf - greens were a little patchy here and there but hey it was snowing for some of the round.

It's a great course - long, plush, good challenge (if you play <10 handicap, I would play from the tips). It could have been slightly more narrow for a bit more of a challenge, but i wasn't complaining.

Decent layout for a housing community golf course. The greens are fast and sloped. There is definitely some very noticeable areas of disease on a handful of the greens, which detracts from an otherwise very nice putting surface. The course is challenging with a good amount of fescue grass in close proximity to the fairways. Multiple sets of tees to challenge any level golfer. Not sure I would recommend it to the beginner as the houses and fescue could make for a long intimidating round of golf. Overall a nice course worth playing.

The course is well laid out however, they over water the fairways and greens. By over watering the course it has ruined the root structure of the grass making it too soft. The club house needs to be updated....i.e, a paint job to start and over all maintenance in the rest rooms and restaurant.

Played for the second time. Course layout rewards accuracy.

Greens are a bit ragged with bare spots which detracted from the overall quality of this track. Pay attention to distances to hazards that cross fairways.

Starter gave comprehensive overview. Professional and thorough, encouraging keeping up with group in front. Pace of play was good for a Saturday morning.

Will definitely play again. Hopefully condition will improve.

Okay course if you get discounted rates. Course layout is fair but a little rough - greens were spotty and rough was very uneven. Nice round but not a premium course.

No notice on golf now that they were literally aerating the greens that morning. Needless to say, putting was a joke. Some greens and tee boxes were in rough shape with dirt patches. Love this course when properly maintained, but not on this round. Starter was rude and abrasive. Acted like he looked down on us "golf now" folks. Good news, pace of play was great. Guessing the locals knew about the greens and the golf now community did not!
