Enjoyable experience

This is one of my favorite courses to play. The course was in excellent playing condition and except for one teeing area there were virtually no bare spots on the entire course. I like the variety of difficulty for some of the holes especially the par 5 #8. The rough was touch as it should be but not as brutal as some courses I have played recently. The green speed was above average and the staff extremely friendly. I have played there numerous times and fully intend on returning and hopefully soon.

Nice course

First time there. Not hilly, gentle roll to the well kept fairways. Though a little on the slow side the greens are in excellent condition. Many tee choices for all player capabilities. Some traps have standing water in them front recent rains and may need additional sand.

Fantastic Course

Played Hobbs Hole for the first time on a perfect summer day. The twilight rates were unbelievably good. The course is very pretty and in great shape. I live outside the Richmond, VA area with many courses to choose from but Hobbs Hole is my new favorite!

Obscure pricing and uneducated pro shop employees

Don’t believe on phone or on line pricing. Was told juniors were free but would pay for cart. Understandable. Played last week for that pricing after specifically asking on the phone. Went today to be told no junior rates and my 15 yo son would have to pay regular adult fee. I’m sure many 15 yo players can afford that. After telling me no junior rate, he said juniors were 14 and under. Wow. Which is it. Too expensive for a bobumpkin course in the middle of nowhere. Hopefully other area courses care about kids becoming involved. Disappointing.@$80.00 for a man and kid on a Thursday.

Your own website prices Thursday’s at 7:30 for 54.00 for 2 adults and a cart. You charged me $74.00. Check your own website and educate yourself on your pricing. Oh and thanks for the “discount “ of the $20.00 you overcharged me in the first place.

Let’s be honest. I was charged $74.00 “Discounted” $20 after the round only when I complained and manager didn’t show when promised before I began play. Was told he would address situation after the round then told he wasn’t available. Course is fair as I have indicated in review. Staff, on the other hand was less than stellar. I’ll let the readers judge for themselves. Also sorry for your confusion.

Sorry for any confusion. As anyone who plays here knows, we cater to youth golfers. We hope you enjoyed your discounted rate of $54.00 for two players with cart!

Nice course for the price

Staff is very friendly in pro shop and grill room. Nice grill room with good food and beverages. Greens were in good shape. Some of the tee boxes and sand traps needed work. Fairways are starting to thicken up. Had a bad winter and cold spring. Taking a while for Bermuda and Zoysia fairways to come in.

Hobbs Hole

I went as a single on a Thursday late morning. On the putting green, two members invited me to play with them and I found friendliness of that sort typical of the members and staff.

I played from the blues about 6200 yards. Not a lot of trouble in the fairways but it was very windy with gusts in the '20's.

Fairways need work. Hadn't filled in, lots of sparceness. Rolled the ball a lot.. Greens rolled true but bumpy. They were large enough to make a difference in club selection.

Didn't see a lot of maintenance going on and the course needs some after the rough winter we had.

The drive out is beautiful. Pastoral with lots of farmland and a tree-lined parkway. Tappahannock, is near the end of the Rappahannock River before it empties into the Chesapeake Bay. A sleepy village at this time of year but you can tell its busy in summer ... lots of shops. (or shoppes).

Overall sense of the course... cheap to play, fun-ish layout, in decline.
