Tried

Tried to give it another go. Challenging course yes. Because its in horrible shape and has been for years. Until it gets new owners it will never be a great course. Fairways narrow. But like playing in swamp land some days. Just poorly run operation. Plenty of better courses in Northern VA.

Bring extra golf balls

Needed a course to play and the price was right. We got what we paid for! Tee boxes were not in good shape. Hardly any grass and still wet from last weeks rain, despite 2-3 days of high winds to dry things out at other courses. Footing with spike less shoes was slippery on several tees.. Fairways are narrow and leaves everywhere. Lots of blind shots.. Greens were very bumpy. Areas around some of the greens were soggy. Bunkers were in good shape. A few could use more sand. I would only play this course again to challenge myself to play better. It was a frustrating round of golf because we had to look for our balls that got covered by leaves in the fairways. I won't recommend this course to my friends until they go back to riding in the fairways. One last thing, they should put signage on the holes that have hazards or water with suggested driving distances .

Not worth a second look

Tee boxes and greens were in very poor condition. Fairways were in good condition. The rough was generally long and thick.

I had not played this course in over 2 years. But I did play on 23 October. The fairways are vastly improved. The greens have been treated and not one of them illustrated any black fungus and have improved. The tee boxes are under repair and they are adding turf for tee boxes until the the repairs are complete. The sand traps are maintained and are better the Forest Greens and that of the Gauntlet. So maybe its under new management, but the improvements are there.

Great club!

One of my favorite courses to play. I think it's great that they open their private club a few times a week. The staff is very nice and welcoming. Even though it's private you don't seem like an outsider. Members are very friendly as well. Will continue to play here once a week. My favorite course in the area. Thank you Montclair cc.

Reasonable cost - 4 hour round
Amazing changes with course conditions since my round last year. Greens and fairways are good and trees have been removed. Course still challenging with narrow fairways. Several Bunkers need sand. We will definitely play this course again.

Tight but fun

Challenging little course that requires you to hit straight vs. long. Greens are getting better and fairways typically in great shape. Can have a great time.

Needs work

This place needs A TON of work. Greens were rolling slow and bumpy. Trees on numerous holes need to be trimmed back to actually have a shot or be playable. The course is very tight and not great for beginners. I’m sure this course was very nice at some point in it’s life.

Horrific

It seems like every course in NoVA is in great condition but this one was absolutely terrible. The fairways were ok but the bunkers were just mudpits and the greens were so choppy and bumpy. Staff was friendly and honest about the condition of the course but it was unacceptable out there. 1 star.

This course needs too much work and I won't play here again. Cart paths are confusing and you have to drive a bit on the main road with regular traffic! It's OK for a practice round but that's it.

Course is rough but playable

Nice to play this course a second time and know its quirks.

Shot making a must due to blind angles, elevation extremes, short holes to set up approach shots and unjulated fairways and greens.

Course is rough due to poor up keep compounded by winter conditions but is easily playable if the player isnt a picky player needing ideal conditions.

This is a challenging short course that is harder than the card indicates and will provide an array of shots not always pulled from the bag on longer flatter courses. A nice course to work on distance control and putting.

Currently open to the public, recommend playing it before they go back to full private, if the do.

Not bad but not for me

Most of the people I saw playing didn't hit very far which is good on this course. The holes are narrow with houses close to the course. If you are comfortable playing this type of course then it is a good value. If you want open areas to land in, are uncomfortable with housing close by, then this isn't a good course for you. I have been hitting my driver well lately but only felt comfortable using it on two holes. The layout is very interesting with a few hidden dangers, long and narrow par 3s, lots of hills, and trees line most fairways. The greens were true, quick, and even straight putts moved when they shouldn't. For me it would have been a very enjoyable round if the houses were set back farther. I would recommend this course but tell the person why it is not for me, too cramped.

Charming course in bad shape at season's end

I'm a longtime fan of Montclair CC. The course has a lot of charm and character, with tons of variety and some very fun holes. It's very short by today's standards, but it requires real shot-making and control. Zipping around in under 3 hours is easy if you tee off as a single after 1:00 or 2:00. Unfortunately, the course is in pretty rough shape by the time Oct/Nov rolls around. Several greens are beaten up, and at least 10 or 12 greens were covered in leaves. I can understand the course taking a beating over an entire summer, but there's really no excuse for them failing to take charge of the dead leaf situation. Mowers, mulchers, and leaf blowers should be running constantly throughout the course; during my round on Sunday, I didn't see a single grounds crew member anywhere.
