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.
