Great course to play, it was too hot today it would be nice to have cold drinks.
Course was dry until the young man turned the water on 18 while we were on the green putting? Water tub on hole 3 had some, Tub on 6 had some, Tub on 12 was empty, Tub on 16 was empty. Did I mention we teed off at noon and it was 90 degrees. Not a pleasant time on the golf course. Glad when we got out of there!
Played while out visiting relatives, would not drive the distance to play again.
I have played this course a number of times over the years. A lot of other courses around Northern VA are in very bad shape now (example: Pleasant Valley in Chantilly, with dead tee boxes and greens full of ball marks). Not Bristow! Tees, fairways, and greens are all very nice. Bunkers have improved but still sub-par. The zoyzia fairways are great, and the greens were smooth. I'll play there again soon.
Beginner friendly track, great greens
Appropriately priced greens fees, but don’t expect at 80-100 course/experience for 60 bucks. Range is closed and course still soaked with standing water everywhere (lots of courses very wet right now but appears this place will take weeks to dry out). Fairways are thick Bermuda grass, greens are bent and in great shape. Layout a bit quirky (short par 5s where you need to hit iron off the tee, etc.) but good track for beginners. If I had to guess, the average handicap of the players I saw on a nice weekend morning across the course was probably 30.. that combined with no marshals adds up to a long round
Wet day at the office
Cart path only on this course adds an hour to the round. Not the courses fault as VA has gotten hammered with rain, but it didn't help that the course seemed over booked also. Very muddy out there on a sweltering day. Greens were in very good condition all things considered.
Played after several days of rain so course was very soggy! Regardless of the wet spots, greens were awesome! Fairways were plush! Will be back soon!
Challenging but fair
I thought course was in good shape considering all the recent rain. Rough was a bit long but not bad. Cart path only caused a longer round time (5hrs) but not slow play pace. Enjoyed the course and will play it again
