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.

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!

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.

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.

The Greens are in fantastic shape but waiting for some warm weather for the dormant fairways to come back in.

The sand bunkers (all) are in desperate need of attention. Many of them have a serious drainage problem (none) and all are in desperate need of real sand.. There is standing water for several days in some for several days and when the water is pumped out there is mud. It may be beneficial if some of the bunkers were converted to grass bunkers rather than sand.

A hard packed bunker is vary difficult to hit a ball out.

The course is in great shape, but it can be a little

A great price of $23 in November. Course was in good condition. Nice job in minimizing leaf fall problems, clear fairways and rough areas. Greens were surprisingly fast for this time of year. Well maintained course. We’ll return soon!

I have to say that Troy is one of the best and nicest Golf Pro's I have ever had the privilege of meeting. This man goes out of his way to make sure everyone is greeted and well taken care of. I have to travel an hour to get to this course and will continue to do so. The course is challenging as well as rewarding, Always a pleasure.

The course was in great condition. The fairways were lush and easy to hit from and the greens were rolling nicely. I would only hope that more people would fix their ballmarks so the greens can stay nice. Bunkers were in good shape and the rough was not overly long but could make shots more difficult when the ball sat down a bit. After round, food and service at the bar was as good as always, friendly and tasty.
