Fun Track

First time since it changed hands....still challenging; needs some work on the sand traps and greens aren't as fast as I remember. Overall really fun and will be back. Also check out the 19th hole, great food.

Great course and prices.

Had a 7:30 am tee time on a Saturday morning. Staff was friendly , grass range, nice putting green. The course was in excellent condition and for a golf course in a community the layout was great . Houses were not in play. Finished the round in 4 hours 20 minutes which isn’t bad for the weekend. Greens rolled true and at a good pace. Paid the going rate of 59 bucks and it was well worth it. I have paid more many times and the courses were not even close to this one. I am from the ashburn area and it took me 45 minutes to get there. Well worth the drive.

Diminishing Returns

We only lasted 8 holes on this day, due to a pace-of-play of 2 hrs/38 mins, for those 8 holes. Tried to play through at the turn, and in fact asked that day's pro shop staff , if any body had turned lately, and they had no idea? They then proceeded to send groups off the back to pigeon-hold us in. No players assistant, course in substandard condition, and deplorable pace. It is unfortunate, in that the layout is interesting.

Green is so slow

It was the most slowest green I've ever played. They should have cut the grass for the weekend golfer even if it was Easter Sunday.

Surprised

First nine no problem! First hole on second nine was hit into by a single? I was standing in fairway to hit my second and wham in coming and no warning? Some people have no clue.
