Dreadfully Slow

Decent course. Fairways and tee boxes are so so but greens are good. Pace is a joke. Too many sIngles and twosomes stuck in between 4 foursomes. They refuse to pair up to make the pace improve. They need to enforce the pace of play and make foursomes. 3 hours for 9 holes and left. Slow play is the enemy of my game.

Good course, bad day

My review probably looks schizo, but the headline sums it up. Prince William is a good local course and, priced on the low side for this region, an excellent value for the money. But the massive rains a couple days before took their toll, and the first hole should have been closed--it was unplayable. Other holes ranged from okay-I-get-it to perfectly fine. They did have a couple guys running blowers hooked up to tractors on the 8th, and you had about a three second window to hit a ball with a reasonably low risk of killing them. Combine that with our playing behind an abusively slow foursome and it was that kind of day. Greens were in great shape, and on a normal day I'd recommend this course without hesitation.

Good variety of holes

The course is in very good shape. This course has some very challenging holes where driving accuracy is a must. The staff is top notch although they lacked a starter.

Nice layout, great condition, great value, tough rough

Nice layout with generous fairways and difficult rough. Course was in great condition, despite severe rains. Several par 3s were very challenging due to long carries over water.Excellent value for nothern VA. I will definitely plan to play the course again. Next time I will walk.

They Are Doing Spring Cleaning

The course was not bad, but it would have been nice to know they were aerating the front 9 before we got there. We had the option to play the back 9 twice and we did. They had recently aerated that and all the greens were covered in sand. All in all, not bad and it was just the first full round of the year for us...we know the course will be in great shape soon.

Incredibly forgettable and disappointing - not a Casper-level standard

I was excited to play here given that I live in DC and it had such good reviews. It was incredibly underwhelming after a 45 minute drive to the boonies.

Conditions: The course was swamped in several areas with lumpy greens. Tee boxes were ok and the rough provided some good challenges in certain areas.

Layout: Incredibly boring. Almost every hole is a par 4 with open fairways and limited obstructions to the green (only two par 5's and back to back on the back 9).

Staff: So meh - walked in and one sole worker was sitting at a chair and just stared at me for a solid 10 seconds until I said "i'm here for a tee time." He grudgingly got up and barked about not riding off the cart path before handing me a receipt without so much as a please or thank you before sitting back down and folding his arms. Ridiculous.

Pace of play: The course is incredibly popular and so you can expect to wait a while to tee off if you're not in a foursome.

Overall: Won't come back.

Fun but overbook everytime

I like the course but they are horrendous at over-booking. Expect to wait a while if you go at a normal time - especially if there is a potential of a frost delay. A frost delay is absolutely normal here, yet they continue to book early tee times. Had an 11:00 tee time and didn't finish until 4:45.

Prince William golf course - completely nice

Due to Don the starter, the desk mgr and the grounds crew, there was a special welcoming feeling. The course conditions were excellent and the pace was surprisingly fast. Can't wait to go here soon and regularlly.

Keeps getting better

This course has been steadily improving over the years. The greens, fairways, and tee boxes are in excellent shape. The rough is lush and penal if you find the deep stuff. The layout is challenging but it is a good walking course if you care to do that. Very hard to get more value for your money. Just two small complaints. The paved cart paths have annoying cracks in places just deep enough to be jarring as you drive over them...pretty much all along the course. Holes 3, 4 and 5 can be a bit of a traffic jam with hazards and difficult greens sometimes slowing play. Overall, a great place for golf.

Slow and bumpy greens after aeration

I played earlier this year with great greens. Putting was much too hard this time.

Staff is very courteous.

Slow

The course was in good condition but the very slow pace of play (with a Marshall driving around) made the experience regrettable. Also for a course that only plays 6300 yards from the tips there is no reason to have a 250 yard par 3. I will not be going back.
