Challenging public course

Resting National is a solid, if pricey, offering in Northern VA, where there are not a ton of great alternatives. Par 3s are long, almost 200 yds from Black tees (one up from tips). Fairways are not overly wide and rough is deep enough to force course management. biggest issue was in green side bunkers, Not nearly enough sand in many, with poor drainage. Cost was about $25 more than the Montgomery County, MD munis, making Reston not the best value. It was a fun track to play and we had great weather.

A real County course jem

My first time experience at Reston National left me with the feeling I was playing a private course..I have played through out the winter and this course is so much further along in terms of preperations than anything I have played in the last two weeks... fairways are lush. First and second cuts are impeccable... greens are almost there.

Really poor shape

It doesn’t help that the greens had just been aerated (I feel like they should tell you this on the booking sites), but even off the greens was just terrible. The tee boxes were virtually all dirt with some sprouts coming through, cart path is beat up, fairways and greens are consistently beat up and patchy. Unfortunately it’s a convenient course if you live in Reston which is why I went this day, but I honestly don’t think I will go back. I would have gone elsewhere for the money if I’d know the condition the course was in. It used to be so much better cared for years ago. Hope they turn it around..

Good morning musci766,

Thank you for your feed back. We are sorry to hear about your recent experience at the golf course. Communication with our guests regarding any maintenance practices is very important to us. Hopefully we can have you back out to Reston National as soon as the golf course has recovered from the recent aeration. Thank you again.

Over booked

We had a 3:24 tee time. When my group showed up there was 6 groups on the first tee box.. We tee off 50 minutes after are tee time. We were only able to play 9 holes due to darkness. I do not think I would play here again if the over book.

Good morning cnldavis13,

Thank you for your feedback. We are sorry to hear about your experience with the delay of your tee time recently. We are usually able to make adjustments on days we experience significant frost delays. It was a beautiful day with all of our tee times filled. We Hope to see you at Reston again, perhaps on a day weather is not a factor. Thank you again.

Pace of play destroys this course

Great course and usually in good condition, however having a tee time every 8 minutes means waiting for almost every shot due to golfers in front.

Off Season Round

Any golf in December is a bonus but the course was in fairly poor condition- mostly due to recent rain. The greens were nice, however, but slow. Overall, a nice layout but rumors are that this course may be closing in a couple of years so they may not be spending the money for proper upkeep.
