Still a favorite
Bull Run is one of my favorites in the area and remains so despite some challenges coming out of a very rainy last few months. They are up front in posting info that they are working to get their tees and other spots back up to their standards with overseeding, etc. The greens were a little thin in places but still rolled well. Fairways were still very good. A warm day in Oct brought out a lot of folks so the round was kinda slow. Staff is always very friendly. I'll still try to get back to Bull Run whenever I can.
Overall everything was good. Course layout is fairly easy and pretty short from the White tees. Greens were in good/great shape as were the fairways. Everything was lush due to all the rain we've had this late in the summer. Two notes for the staff. Tee boxes need to be maintained better. The grass is also too long on the tee boxes. Lastly, a beverage cart person would have been nice to have out there!
Love Bull Run
One of the best conditioned courses in the area. Free range balls, practice chipping and putting. Great people running the facility. The course is challenging and tests your skills. Can’t wait to play it again.
The course is awesome
All of us enjoyed playing. The course was overall in good condition even though it has rained for a week. The layout is also a bit challenging. No bordom at all. And the staff of the grill was nice and professional. We will go to play again.
TT at Bull Run
Nice course design. Course condition is a little rough. Lots of land to place a course - over 440 acres. A few houses but none close to the course. Wish it was in better shape. I will play it again.
Based on recent reviews and the fact that a lot of courses have been in distress, we were a bit apprehensive about playing Bull Run. we were pleasantly surprised to find that not only were they hard at work improving the course, but the greens were in great shape, the fairways did have some bare spots here and there, and most of the tee boxes were o.k. We have played this course several times a year since in opened; have seen it when it was in distress; and were glad that it's coming back!
Great people but horrid conditions
The staff were great and friendly but the conditions were just awful. Nearly every tee box our tees were dirt. Every now and then we were lucky enough to have crab grass. They didn’t bag the clippings and that was everywhere. The course layout is nice but I’ve played better maintained courses for less than half what I payed here. I would save your money for nearly anywhere else.
Nice layout but needs some work
A very nice layout and great staff but the fairways and tees were very neglected and hadn’t been cut in at least a week. I know that the DC area had a lot of rain in the previous days but this course needs some major TLC. The greens were in good shape but needed cutting and the pace was almost 6 hours.
Thank you for your feedback and kind words regarding the staff and layout.
As you indicated, the fairways and tees were not up to standards over the weekend in large part due to the large amount of rain over the previous week. While we were able to mow on Thursday and Friday, the course was in need of more mowing to get the grass heights down even more.
As Saturday was a beautiful day after the rains, we were indeed very busy with cart path only conditions making for painfully slow rounds in the afternoon.
Please visit us again as we continue work on tees and fairways to improve conditions and hopefully your overall experience.
Tee boxes and greens are terrible. The have let the place go with no signs of improving it. Charged $78 which was a rip off. Avoid this course. It used to be very nice, not any more.
Thank you for your feedback and appreciation of the layout and amenities at the course.
As our bermudagrass tees were negatively affected by winterkill over a severe winter we have started the process of improvement with sprigging of affected areas. Improvement in an effort to get full recovery going into the fall.
We hope to see you again as the conditions continue to improve into the fall.
I enjoyed this course up until the 14th hole when the rain became too heavy. Will have to play it again when the weather pattern changes. Has some challenging holes that require ball placement over length of drive.
Much better than expected!
After reading recent reviews of the conditions at Bull Run I wasn't expecting a good experience. However, the course was really in pretty good shape given the lack of rain the past few weeks Yes, several of the tee boxes were closed and played from temporary tees, but overall the fairways were in pretty good shape and the greens were in great condition. and rolled true. A very enjoyable round at just under 4 hours on a Friday on one of Northern Virginia's best layouts, and a great value at $54!
Down hill slide
This course seems to have an ongoing problem with fairway and tee box maintenance. Several years ago (at least 10) the course had to rebuild several fairways. After that effort, the course remained in very good playing conditioner several years. Now, they seemed to be heading in a direction that will require another total rework of several fairways. The tee boxes are in really bad shape with 3 of them actually closed for repair. Lots of areas on the course where the crabgrass is taking over. This is a beautiful layout in a great location that suffers from maintenance issues. The good news is the greens are very well maintained. Hope the course can return to better days.
Summer heat not too friendly to the course
Course is in pretty bad shape. Greens are OK but tee boxes are pretty much all dirt and fairways have a number of dirt patches throughout the course. Course seemed to try to save more damage by over watering the course but that just made our round soggy.
pace & condition
Green speed was very consistent and rolled true, so those three punt were on me.
Pace of play was really good considering it was father's day weekend, 4 - 41/2 hours, specially coming off of Saturdays play at 1757, six hour round, ouch.
If you've never been you gotta try it very pretty course as well.
Booked a foursome to play golf on Friday before Father's Day. Weather was PERFECT! We had a great time in our foursome. The course was in better shape than when I played it 5 years ago. Tee boxes are Bermuda grass, so in another week the Bermuda will be on fire! This course is great for an "average" golfer and challenging enough for the single handicapper. Every hole is different...a MUST play for your foursome this summer!
Love this course
In good condition except for some sand traps. Free driving range balls is something you don’t see at courses anymore. Will be playing this course a lot.
Gem of a course--one of best in Northern Virginia
I love the layout of this course! It is a pretty course. Condition was very good but Bermuda tees haven't grown in yet. Played early and flew around in well under four hours. Staff in pro shop and restaurant were friendly and helpful. Driving range could use some attention--mats and balls very worn out. Otherwise, practice area is great. Overall a very pleasant experience and decent value.
