Laurel Hill Golf Club has some of the best conditions of any public course in the area, which is why it is popular amongst the locals. It is hard to believe that the club sits where the DC Department of Corrections facility at Lorton used to be located. The layout has a traditional design, but unlike older golf courses it runs a lengthy 7,102 yards from the back tees. The greens are lightning fast and undulating. There is defined contouring throughout the course, which allows for some interesting holes. Although the fairways are wide open they are still punishing towards errant shots. There are dramatic elevation changes throughout the golf course, making a flat lie nearly impossible to find. The course provides a formidable test for even the most seasoned players.

Good course, watch out for slow groups

When daylight is fading at 620 on a fall afternoon watch out for scumbags who take 20m per hole. Otherwise, a sublime experience

Laurel Hill

The staff were friendly, organized and efficient at check in. The course layout was very good with multiple tees giving very different looks on several holes. The course was in excellent condition. I will definitely play again. Highly recommend.

Great facility and course condition

Given the other options around the NoVa area this course is the only one that consistently checks all the boxes. Greens always are in great shape, well maintained fairways, practice facilities have grass and mats, chipping area well supplied with balls, and friendly staff (mostly volunteers). Other courses seem to check a couple boxes - Laurel Hills does it right and for a price that doesn't kill you. Just an overall great place to play golf.

Great shape

Play twice a week in DC area and this course is by far in the best shape from the ones I’ve played. Add to that the fact that they are one of the cheaper greens fees and it’s a no brainer. Will be back again and again.

Great lay out!

This course was an excellent choice. The starter advised us of the recently aeration. The course was very challenging and enjoyable. Great lay out!! We will definitely be back. Left a few birdies out there. Mike the starter was outstanding.

Super course

Long and challenging. Great layout.

Unfortunately players apparently dont repair divots or ball marks although I can’t hold the course accountable for that.

Tough to get tee times and I can see why. Must play again.

Great Course - Good Value

I live about 15 minutes from the course. Best course in Fairfax County. Good deals, great staff, nice practice range. I already booked my next round there, and I can't wait.

Just an awesome course. Great mix of interesting holes: a fun drivable par 4 7th with a thoughtfully bunkered green, uphill and downhill and short and long par 3s, a couple of really challenging par 4s (#3 and #17 in particular), some gettable holes that require a really good short iron/wedge in (#2, #10, and #12), two reachable par 5s (#5 and #9) and two that require 3 good shots (#15 and #18). No throwaway holes on the entire course. The course is in really good shape for the mid-summer heat and all the play every course seems to be getting this summer (greens do have a lot of ballmarks but the fairways and rough are well kept, the tee boxes are in great shape, and the greens are still above average). And the practice facilities are fantastic. Definitely one of the best courses in the DC area!

King of the DC/NoVa munis

This is a difficult golf course and operates at a different level (and price point) than other municipally owned courses in the area. Laurel Hill is long, long, long, so study the scorecard carefully when selecting what tee to play.

If you like your course big and brawny, this is your course. However, there are a few breather holes, like the short 7th par 4 and the wide-open and reasonably short 10th. But forced carries and extreme elevation changes will test you on 3, 6, 12 and 17. One drawback to the forced carries is that this is NOT a walkable course, as the paths take you well away from the direct line from tee to fairway.

The County does a good job keeping conditions here at a high-end level, but they typically charge high-end prices. There is an excellent driving range and short-game practice area available.
