Carved from Stafford County's rolling, emerald green hills, Augustine Golf Club plays across a scenic landscape abundant with mature pines and hardwoods. The pristine white bunkers and the lush fairways contrast nicely with the trees. The course conveniently sits just 30 miles from the Washington Beltway. In 2011 when the golf course was acquired by Raspberry Golf Management, who are responsible for several courses in the area, Augustine underwent major renovations that increased its playability. The greens, fairways, rough, bunkers, and tee boxes were all redone. The layout offers a challenge but is gentle enough for beginners to approach with confidence. Included in a round of golf at Augustine are range balls and unlimited use of the driving range, which has different targets and a large putting green.

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.

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.

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.

This course has a great layout. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The course had some rough spots on the greens, though still very playable. The practice green was a real mess. The front nine played within an acceptable pace. The back nine really got backed up and turned into a grind. No player assistants in sight!

Me and my wife was on our way home from Virginia Beach and was 2 hrs from home and want3d to play a round before it got dark and found this gem of a course called Augustin Golf Club. Great place to play and the staff was very friendly. I would recommend this course to anyone and if I were a local, I'd probably be a regular at this track!

If you don't like hitting your driver, this course is for you. PAR 5 that can only have a 225 yard tee shot, front 9 you need your driver for 2 holes. Layout isn't very good. Only positive is you get to hit more of the clubs in your bag.

I've occasionally been playing here for the past several years and it has made great strides over the past year. The course is in great shape overall, and the greens are the best I've ever seen them. It's clear that management has really put an emphasis and commitment to provide a quality track. Well worth your time

Augustine always brings a fun challenge with its long, hilly and doglegged holes. The fairways and greens were cut a little high to enhance Course growth conditions but it was since fun to play.

Played this course regularly 10-20 years ago and it was great. Was sold and fell apart. No sand in any bunkers crabgrass all over tee boxes and greens.Quit playing there at all. Rasberry falls management bought it 5 years ago, closed it for awhile and I played once after it was reopened but it was still pretty bad. Told it was really improved so convinced 3 guys I used play with at Augustine to give it a try. We were all very impressed with the remarkable recovery the course has made. Tee boxes and fairways were excellent and the greens were good with the usual wear and tear you'd expect at the end of a summer of golf. Staff from check in to starter and marshal couldn't have been more cordial, no attitude or indifference you occasionally find at other courses. Augustine is back in a big way and all 4 of us would highly recommend it. We range from 5-22 handicaps

TEN STARS.

My 2017 family reunion was in Dale City, Virginia. (Every year, family members drive or fly in from several cities to meet in the host city for the reunion.) My cousins, brother, his wife and I like to play golf. We chose Augustine for our outing. We spent quality family time together. We had a great time despite the rain and wind. The night before, there was a downpour in Dale City, and we were not sure we'd be able to play. However, Augustine was open and ready for business at 6:55 a.m. The course was lovely. The staff was helpful and accommodating in every way. I have kept Augustine in my records anticipating a future return visit. A tremendous thank you to the Augustine Staff.

Raspberry management has done a wonderful job bringing the course back to the very high quality course it was when it first opened - perhaps even better. Some work remains in certain areas but it is a great layout, and the fairways, bunkers, and greens are in really good shape. The staff is great and the marshals do a very good job of ensuring the pace of play.
