Burnt, terrible conditions
Almost every fairway is burnt to bare dirt. Tee boxes are all ragged and bare. Just terrible. Can not believe they are charging full price for this. The course really needs to be closed for repair.
Weve play twice a week since March.... first time playing here because it’s pricey... We honestly couldn’t believe how horrible the conditions here were. Hard catches kid and grab grass all over the fairways, tee boxes were basically dirt and leaves, and greens were full of divots. All for $100?! East Potomac looks like a PGA course compared to the shape that Reston National is in - I’m not sure how they’re getting away with this. Very disappointed and don’t waste your money until they fix things.
Bunkers are bone dry (and at the same time, have standing water in half of them) with weeds growing, tees are barren and slanted, and fairways are about 25% dirt.
The rain has not been kind
The fairways are a bit of a mess now with all the rain. I really miss an engaged starter who greets you and tells you who you are playing with. I lately have had to ask "Am I up next?" Its the small things that make the course.
Staff is friendly always a wave and a smile. I like it. They also need a Marshall on the weekend. the fairways are not going to get better when patrons ignore the cart path only rule. I will still be playing there every weekend.
great layout. Got behind a slow foursone that took 2 and 1/2 hours to finish tne first 9. Marshalls finally got them going on hole 14.
Bunkers horrible for a course fee of $80 on Friday. Fees never get less all day long , doesn,'t make sense. All courses drop fees as day gets later. All freqennt player advantages taken away this year. Sad for freqent golfers that want to play more rounds here. I now have to play elsewhere if iplay 3 times in a week.
No loyalty to freqent golfers. Senior discount is only saving grace but it is not in effect on weekends.
Do not play here
Complete waste of money. I’ve played this course dozens of times and new management has officially rendered it unplayable. Entire course is covered in crab grass. Fairways are dirt. Bunkers are under water. A total embarrassment to what once was a beautiful course.
Awful value for price
I actually would not have as much of a problem with Reston National if it was priced correctly. I played this course on a weekday afternoon for a price of $70, which led to the assumption that, quality-wise, it would be in line with other courses in the area like Blue Mash or Whiskey Creek (both of which are actually $5-10 cheaper) which are consistently well-maintained with a reasonable pace of play. This course is basically a glorified version of East Potomac Blue (which charges about $30-35 per round at the same time/day). The tee boxes are nothing short of an absolute disaster -- patches of crabgrass overgrowth all over the place, and huge swaths of divot sand everywhere else to the point where it was difficult to find a place to tee up a driver where your stance wasn't uneven or in a divot rut, let alone hit an iron off a short tee or on a piece of turf. Since there had been a fair amount of rain in the area prior to my round, there is a level of understanding I'd have for certain conditions being temporarily worse, but this far exceeded that. The majority of the fairway grass was barren and muddy to the point where I'd have staked it as ground under repair, but at that point you'd have so much ground staked that you'd basically have to shut the course down. Which brings up another issue -- it didn't look like any of these problems were being actively resolved. None of the tee box divots looked to have been reseeded, and the crabgrass hadn't been mowed in weeks. The drainage on the course seemed nonexistent, and multiple bunkers weren't just standing water -- they were full to the point where you could legitimately lose a ball in there. The greens weren't awful -- and I'd expect them to roll a little slower and hold a little more given the recent rain -- but you could see the same level of negligence there, stuff like huge barren muddy parts where cups had been cut in previous days/weeks. I wasn't expecting a phenomenal pace of play, and the group in front of us seemed to be both inexperienced and not quite understanding of how to keep up the pace of play, but they were also waiting on a few holes, and the wait we had on every single tee box was absolutely brutal ... just round-killing bad. And their wait makes me think that the tee times were managed poorly. Which brings me to the final point about the course, which is, to be fair, entirely out of Reston National's control ... the. gnats. are. AWFUL. They should sell beekeeper hats in the clubhouse, it was that bad. I played the entire round, in 80-90 degrees, with a towel wrapped around my head between shots just to make it bearable. It was truly the icing on the cake standing on the #2 fairway, having hit two tee shots off of patchy tee boxes and another shot off of mud in the fairway, waiting 10 minutes to hit an approach shot, and realizing that I'd both been robbed of $70 and I was going to be swarmed by gnats for another 16 holes. I was legitimately tempted to walk away after nine. If you want to play a low-key round for a reasonable price, go to East Potomac. If you want to spend more money for a higher-quality course, do not do it here.
Do not play here
40 minute delay due to having no carts, course was in terrible shape. Fairways were dirt and mold. Good thing the beverage cart women was so nice.
Decent and fair
The course was in very good condition except for bunkers, which was understandable. Greens in good shape, fairways had very few bare spots.
Love the Course
Reston National challenges the novice player. That course is a great example of thinking your way around the course.
Great track, but conditions are lacking
Lots of crab grass growth and poor tee boxes. Greens are nice, but very thick. I will probably play here again but if the conditions don’t improve I’m likely to find somewhere else.
The course has a great layout and varied difficulty. Just needs to be kept up better. I imagine that’s tough with all the bad weather.
Solid option in northern va
Fairways and greens are in fantastic shape. Greens roll very true. Only complaint is that the tee boxes are in pretty bad shape, and the bunkers dont drain well- all were flooded and unplayable today. Staff is very friendly, especially the guy working the counter at the snack bar. Pace used to be an issue here, but I’ve played here three times this year and the pace has been perfect. Overall a fun and fair but challenging layout.
