I had known about this course and had seen numerous promotions on TV and remember playing it once before a number of years ago. On this day there was a group in front of us that was slow and no on course personnel to help. It was a very long frustrating day seeing open holes and not being able to get into a rhythm on a Friday morning. I liked the design of the golf holes but the set up for carts was very awkward and I can't imagine how any seniors can play the course. Also the course is so big that walking it is nearly impossible for all but the younger well fit players. Lots of hills used well in design and greens were deceiving trying to read breaks. As I said, I liked the golf holes themselves but overall it was not a positive experience. Don't think I will go back based on what happened today.
Fun course but SLOW
Played Broad Run on Saturday and the course is great. It's very hilly and you get to do some fun shots over ravines and off moutain tops. The pace of play however is really slow. There is no starter and no one keeping things moving in terms of pace pf play. There is also no beverage cart and the snacks at the turn are nothing special.
Pace of play on a open in golf course in front of the group in front of us made for a negative experience as much as I tried to enjoy the golf course itself. Glad to hear someone else has same opinion.
Great layout, great course
Broad run is like yoga for golfer. The elevation puts your mind at peace. Course was in good condition. Only minor complaint would be the pace of play. There was a foursome in front of us with a handicap cart and they were slow. Would have been nice to see a ranger speak with them to keep pace. Otherwise, great round!
Awesome and Challenging Course
Broad Run is a very unique course in that you feel like you're playing on the sides of a mountain. Some holes are straight uphill all the way, others have valleys with long drop-offs. Each hole is very unique and challenging in its own way. The greens aren't impossibly but they will test even a good putter.
I was very impressed with Broad Run, with everything from the friendly and professional staff (who helped a first time player at the course feel very welcome) to the great conditions to the exceptional views of the surrounding area. The only problem was the pace of play (4:45), which can partially be attributed to the length and difficulty of the course.
It may be challenging, but Broad Run is one of the most scenic and unique courses in the area.
WARNING: Do not walk this course.
Ha! I actually walked the front 9 till one of my playing partners ran into my pushcart & broke it! Yeah, definitely would not recommend walking because even if you're a world-class athlete you'll hold up your group.
The course is in GREAT shape. With leaves starting to change color, the course is beautiful this time of year. It it very hilly and offers several risk/reward opportunities. Highly recommended.
This is a Must play!
one of my favorites in the country! If you haven't gotten to this gem I would definitely make the opportunity especially before more houses go up. right now the course might be in the best shape I've ever seen it in! Except for a couple of the bunkers that had hardly any sand in them!
Broad Run going down hill...
Teeing off at 6:50am on Sunday morning you would expect pace of play to be quick but it took 5 hours to play. Totally unacceptable. No rangers in site to keep pace of play moving. When we complained at the end of the round, all they could say in the pro shop was that their course is rated for a 4 hr 45 min round, no apologies. I've played the course plenty of time before and never has it taken that much time to play. No course should take 4:45 to play let alone 5 hours at 6:50am. Even though they said they were fully booked for they day, only saw the drink cart once. A few of the greens appear to still have aeration marks. No sure what that was about. 18 fairway is really getting chewed up too.
Slow, no very slow play, and no on course personnel seems to be a theme to ruin a great collection of golf holes.
