One of the Best Mountain Course I have Played

Omni's The Homestead - Cascades Course is widely considered the best public course in Virginia and considered one of the finest mountain courses in America. The Cascades does not disappoint, located in Hot Springs, VA this course meanders through tall tree lined fairways that work up, down and around the mountains. Most shots into the greens are either one club up or down at minimum and offer a fun test of your game. Many of the stretches of holes allow for views of corridors of multiple holes frames by dense woods and mountains making this course the best visual mountain courses I have played. The Cascades is unique, charming and very fun to play and should be considered a can't miss. Course conditions were outstanding with perfect bunkers and firm and fast greens and fairways. The best customer service I have received this year.

Challenging

Beautiful course. Great staff. Very challenging course. Lots of uphill or downhill lies in the first 12 holes. Plays very long so expect to use your woods and long irons more then usual.

Earns its title as #1 in VA.

Great course! No wonder it is so consistently rated so high. Seasoned old courses like these are what golf is about. Nothing fancy, just a great layout and beautiful to boot.

Not worth the money

The course is not worth $295 they charge to play it. Half the holes are right beside a busy road which becomes distracting trying to concentrate. The layout is not a mountain type layout that one would think. It’s in between mountains and does not have much elevation change you would think it would have. The layout is a simple design and holes are right next to each other. Carts nothing special and do not have gps which ever other course that charges that much does have. Drain system is not good. Water on the greens and fairways were mush. This is the worst of the 15 top 100 golf digest courses I’ve played. I’ve played courses for $40 that are better. Not much of a club house. Driving range is down the road. Practice green was not the same speed as the course. They try and talk you into getting a caddy which is annoying. A lot of rich people that are slow, can’t play golf, and like their clubs wiped for them after every shot play here.

Homestead Gem

Truly great courses stand the test of time. Not more one could ask for, scenic, challenging but fair, both high risk for high reward or play it straight and safe. This course takes one back to an older generation of golf and you can see the greats like Snead and the host of Presidents taking on the course.
