Over crowded!

We had to wait at every hole for 18 holes and it was completely backed up from the beginning. Completely and totally overbooked.

Great Place to Stay and Play

The three nines may not be the greatest course, but offer a good test for most golfers. What sets this place apart is the way you are treated when you stay at the resort, from the check in to the check out., Breakfast is very good and more then adequate to get you off to a great start. The sports bar lounge offers a great selection of food at a very fair price and the same for the beer and drinks and the service at breakfast and the lounge are great If you so wish you can stay for 3 or 4 days and never have to move your car everything you need is right their. Keep up the good work and I'm sure we will be back again next year and Thank you to all of the staff for making our trip another great success.

Saturday Crabgrass

Our twosome played here Saturday to some sad ground conditions; crabgrass, dirt patches and brown splotches. I know this course favors locals but it really needs some attention on the fairways. The vistas are fantastic but the rest was disappointing-

Great course and value

This was a very good golf experience. The only reason I rated the course as good instead of excellent was the fact that due to the current drought, the fairway grass is very thin and sparse. The greens, however, are some of the nicest the in Shenahdoah valley area. They roll true and are simply in excellent condition. The staff was friendly as always. A great value and course.

Old Style

Course is old style with 3 9 holes, played same ones as Monday. Grounds need some work but are in fair to good shape. Labeling is poor and score card does not give layout. Got misplaced 2X on 1st round. Tee placements were good flow of the course was very good. Will play again if in area, was very good value.

Olde Course

Miserably hot day even Teeing off at 8:15. Course conditions were very good - fairways, bunkers, traps all good. Most players appear to be fixing ball marks on greens. Greens very receptive to wedge shots. First par 3 is a bit shaky with a house about 20 yards directly behind the green. At about 175 yards, it is in play. Number 8 - par 5 - is most challenging. Blind tee shot into a valley- can’t see where lands or rolls to. second shot looks to be a lay up at the bottom of the valley ( or you can try clear small creek at bottom) and then up the hill - about 110/ 120 - but 2 club difference in yardage due to elevation change. But good test - I’ll be back.

My Favorite Course

Shenvalee is my personal favorite course to play. Well maintained and overall fun course. Creek course offers nice views as well as some interesting challenges. Old course is short but narrow. Expect to hit a tree or 2...if you play like me. Miller is the toughest course. My favorite combo is Creek to Miller. Hit the Miller grill when you're done. Great fried chicken and burgers.
