Worth the Drive
Living in Arlington, I try to avoid driving up/down 95 for most of the rounds that I play but Augustine is one of the few that I will brave the traffic for. The staff, course layout, pace of play and conditions make a perfect combination for me to make the trip worthwhile to pay their very reasonable greens fees. If you're from the NorthernVA/DC area, I highly recommend adding Augustine into the mix of courses to play.
This course commands your attention from hole 1 with its split fairway. Shot placement is crucial. High altitude tee offs are challenging.. The course is in excellent condition. The staff is very courteous, and helpful. I live 1 hour 45 minutes away in Waldorf MD. The trip was worth it. I will play her again and again!
Things were still wet from all the rain but the course was very playable. The damage from this summer’s weather was not as evident here as many other courses. Greens in great shape and fairways in good shape. Some tee boxes are being repaired and there is some damage near the greens and fairways, but it is minimal. There was a beverage cart on the course and good food after the round in the clubhouse. Very accommodating staff. The course layout is wonderful here and that hasn’t changed.
Quality golf course
Tee Boxes and greens still need work like most courses this year with the weather conditions but a great layout. A must play if you get a good price!
Beautiful layout and never boring with very different views. Not a walking course at all with hills all the way throughout but still fun to play!
Coming back around
I played this course a few months ago and complained to the superintendent... it was that bad.
He knew it, which was a good thing, and you can tell they have been at it trying to get it back into shape. I played the tips both times and the first time a lot of the tee boxes were mud, with very little grass. The greens had dead spots, the fairways were beaten up, etc. It was not in good shape.
However, the quality of the conditions improved tremendously when I came back. All of the tee boxes were grass, greens were bumpy but you could tell that was due to play, not poor management. Fairways looked much better as well. This is definitely one of my favorite tracks, with some of the best looking holes out there. If it was given the same amount of funding, this course could definitely compete with Raspberry Falls.
Hit hard by the rains
Augustine is one of my favorite courses in the area but it has been hit hard by the incessant rain. All the teeboxes are rotted out and have had to be replanted. The greens are also not what they were. Only one bunker was playable and the greens were bumpy. Course aside, the weather was awesome and the drinks came round often. I'll wait to hear the course has recovered before coming back.
Mother Nature is tough
Was looking forward to an enjoyable day when I checked in and found out that recently had to reaerate the greens due to all the rain we have had. The staff did give a Two for one pass as compensation which was nice. The greens definitely need another week to be as challenging as they are normally. I look forward to going back in a couple weeks and check th conditions.
Had a great time at Augustine, one of my favorite layouts. Course conditions are very much improved from a month ago and the course is playing a lot of fun.
Greens rolled very true, fairways have greened up with the recent heat leaving only a few weak areas on the edges, roughs were generally in good shape.
It is clear that the maintenance crew is working hard to provide good conditions with several projects on going as they recover from the cold winter.
I am looking forward to playing again soon
The course we in very bad shape. The tee boxes and fairways were bare to very little grass. The greens were in average condition.
This course was in great shape in March, but it now looks like a $10 course.
Our group had an 0803 tee time. Did not know until we showed up that they were having a best ball tourney shotgun start on holes 8-18 starting at 0900.
Of course we caught them on the 9th hole and did a lot of standing around for the next three and a half hours. Courses should not allow tee times early on event days - and it should be noted on Golf Now when you make a tee time.
The course is in far shape with the exception of the tee boxes, which were more dirt than grass.
Still in Rough Shape
Was very disappointed with the condition of the course.
The staff is great, the layout was challenging but fair. Food was also very good - the potato chips were excellent.
All of the tee boxes, the range and some of the fairways and greens have been hit with what appears to be fungus that has wrought some serious damage.
Would love to return when they get it sorted out.
Tee boxes are mostly bare with some scraggly grass. Greens have just been aerated so I would definitely ask for a discount. The fairways are in good shape, but due to the tee boxes and greens I would hold off for a while. Historically this has been a top level course for the money. Better conditions for the money elsewhere In the area.
Normally a very nice course, but the course is in rough shape right now. Tee boxes are mud, fairways are dirt, greens are aerated. This is typically a very nice course, but give it until June or July to recover.
Was looking forward to my round here when I saw it was a Raspberry Trail course and saw the routing on Google Maps.
Staff was top notch from start to finish. Facilities are very nice.
Bad thing was the course itself. In very bad shape. Very little grass in fairways and the green surrounds. Greens rolled nice and smooth despite recent aeration. Tee boxes had no grass and due to recent rain were muddy.
The layout of the course is nice; challenging with nice variety of holes. Lots of uneven lies and pays to play it more than once to know where not to miss.
But despite the bad course conditions the staff was great so will keep an eye on reviews to see if things improve as I would love to play here again but not with current course conditions.
Thank you for visiting Augustine GC. We appreciate the kind words relating to our staff and are sorry the course did not meet expectations. The course is a warm season grass called Bermuda which needs a few more weeks and warmer temperatures to green up. We would love to have you back out in the future. If you wait 2-3 weeks you should have a totally different experience.
Great Course! Course is in good shape. Greens are challenging. This course is normally expensive. Golf Now makes it affordable! ;-)
