Course was in great shape considering the conditions of other courses in the area and the weather we have had this summer. Fairways and greens especially were in great shape. Tee boxes weren’t great but much better than many courses in the area.
A little disappointed it was cart path only today given the courses wasn’t very wet at all but didn’t
Make much of a difference as we never had a group in front or behind us.
They need to fix up the broken and cracked cart path but that is a minor nitpick.
Was greeted by a starter that didn’t seem to know what was going on and couldn’t find the 3 groups going off before us. Once the round started the pace of play was very slow (at one point 4 groups where on a par 4, 1 on the green, 1 in the fairway and 2 on the tee) with no Marshall to help. Stopped in to get drinks at the turn and only 1 person working in the “pub” line of like 5 people and she seemed to be taking the orders and making the food as well. The course did not have water to drink on any hole (it was about 90 degrees outside) and when it was brought to the attention of the clubhouse staff they said that someone had put water out ( we passed two coolers after the time that he said they got filled) and blew us off after we told him that.
You get what you pay for
Course still very wet, so cart path only. Greens had been punched but excessive amount of sand made putting impossible. Fairways were mostly in great shape. T box’s not so much. Carts paths, roughs, etc pretty bad
Course management should think about customer experience.
The course held a shotgun start tournament the day we played. Regular tee times following the event backed up . The Starter pushed groups off the 1st tee box as fast as possible. Our group averaged 30 mins a hole as a result.
Best fairways in the area
Bristow Manor Golf Club is a challenging 18 hole course. The fairways are pristine. The greens are in great shape. Pace of play can be slow due to a lot of people playing.
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
Great course to play
Simply the best tee boxes, fairways and greens that I have played all year. They rival courses charging $100.00 or more per round. This course is a must to play and I will play it again soon.
Incredibly Enjoyable Course!!!
The course is beautiful and in great shape. There are some interesting par 5s and par 4s. They just need to fix the sands in the bunker. Overall a very challenging but enjoyable course.
