Raspberry Falls Golf & Hunt Club offers the traditional links course reminiscent of those found in the British Isles, situated amidst Virginia's horse country. The club gets its name from the land's former use, a raspberry field. The scenic terrain overlooks to Catoctin Mountains and there are still a few raspberry bushes dotting the course. By far the layout's most formidable challenges come from the deep, stacked pot bunkers that make it truly feel like a classic Scottish golf course. There are also water hazards on a few holes. The course's signature is the par-4 third hole, which is long but plays downhill all the way. The 10th hole, another par 4, is one of the toughest. The landing area is generous off the tee but there is a creek and pond to the left and fairway bunkers on the right.

I play a lot of golf in the DC area, some may call me an aficionado. In all my local experiences, I have never seen such a great value. The course was in great shape and we played our round in 4 hours with no trouble. It was a busy day, but the starter (Byron?) was consistently making his rounds, very friendly ranger. The pros in the shop gave note-worthy service as well. I would recommend this course to anyone in the DC area who is looking for a private-club experience and course, for a public course rate.

This was the first time that I played this course and have heard great things for the past 3 years. My wife and I decided on a late tee time with the hope the place would be quiet and we could zoom around the course quickly. Unfortunately, we were very wrong and it was very crowded and the staff had difficulty managing the amount of people there.

To be fair, it was a beautiful day and everyone was looking to get out but we teed off 25 minutes late and the range was empty with their complementary golf balls. I joined others walking out to the range to pick up balls. With a course of this reputation in the DC area I would be quite embarrassed of this sight and the general mayhem around the first tee. The front nine took 2.5 hours to complete and the group in front of us was still on the tee when we pulled up for the next hole. From what I could tell, there was no specific group that was was poor and we were playing in a foursome taking our time.

Course conditions were what you could expect of any course on a beautiful weekend day at the end of the day. Chewed up and bumpy greens but I would not hold it against the course. Some tee boxes were really bad however, mainly just dirt and mud.

Course lay out was interesting and fun with every hole memorable. This was a major positive.

I am scheduled to play in a tournament next Sunday here and expect pace of play to be much better and the conditions to be better. I am rating the course tougher due to the regard it holds among many that I talk to and play with. I would say that I am resoundly disappointed in this experience but would give it a pass because it seemed like a perfect storm of things working against the course.

Enjoyed our round out at Raspberry Falls as usual. Course was in good shape, save for some grass clippings in the rough due to all the heavy rain we have had recently. Not a really big issue since those should be gone soon. Fairways were in great shape, and greens were in great shape as well. If you can withstand the traffic getting there, it is worth a twilight round. We paid $34, and that felt like a steal. No other courses will you pay that low and get the same quality of course. We had NOBODY in front, and nobody behind. Made for a really good day out there. We will be back!

Raspberry is always a great experience and it’s rare that you get a wide open course with expansive views in Northern VA without homes hovering over the course.

The only knock I have was not that the rough off the fairway was brutal, but there were way too many grass clippings and clumps off the fairway that made it almost impossible to find your ball when it should have been easily findable.

All in all, always a great time at Raspberry.

This was a very nice course with great amenities and facilities. The staff was great upon arrival and all throughout the day.

The range, you had to hit off the mats which was not great, but it is spring time and they are trying to get the grass to grow in on the range.

The Bunkers well nicely maintained and all were raked. The fairways were beautiful and lush. Thr rough was a challenge because the grass was long and thick. I lost a couple balls in the rough just because the rough was quite long and very lush.

The greens were smooth and consistent. The greens have lots of slopes and undulations. I loved that very few ball marks were left um-repaired ont eh greens.

Overall a very nice course with great service.

Course is in excellent shape, staff was extremely friendly however when we made the turn the grill was closed due to an outing. All our group wanted was a drink and some food, anything, but we were informed the grill was closed to the public and they would send someone to the tenth hole . We got our food on the fifteenth hole... over an hour later. Tipped the guy 20$ but it would have been nice on a Friday afternoon at 4:00 to be able to get something at the turn. Next time hold your after party for an event in a separate area please don’t close the grill.

The course was wellmpriced and pace was good. The greens were the fastest I've ever played. Like cement. They need to be aerated and the hole locations were brutal.

Very difficult greens this time of year. Many pin locations require you to drop the ball or it'll run 20 feet past. Even full spinning high shots wont stop. Be prepared to putt or you'll feel the pain of circus mini golf.

Course was in great shape, and this was the first time I have played here that they had the grass range open! I'm sure they have the grass range open, but I usually am not able to play when they have it open. It was in great shape, and enjoyed using the grass. Chipping area was also in great shape! We played on a Saturday afternoon, and the course was EMPTY. The weather was great when we started, but was rainy by the time we got to the 14th or 15th hole; maybe that was what was putting people off. Whatever the case may be, we did not see a SINGLE PERSON out on the course. We played as a 4-some, and were able to take our time on all the holes, and still finish in less than 4 hours. The fairways were still in good shape, and greens were rolling true and quick. They really do take care of this course all year long. I will certainly be back to play in the winter months! When this course is as cheap as Westpark or Brambleton, and I am only 10 minutes away, it is certainly a no-brainer! Well done, Raspberry Falls!!
