Another nice really layout, with a variety of different holes to catch your attention. Five tee boxes to choose from and some really pretty views. We had the entire course to ourselves! Not in as good a shape as when I've previously played--some fairways have dirt spots (especially #18 which is almost unplayable), bunkers have hardpan and grass in them (but workers were out trying to recover them), and there were bare spots around many of the greens. The greens were in great shape, though, and a good speed. For only $35, it was still a good deal, because I like this course. However, they are going to need to do some work on this course soon, otherwise it will be beyond even being a good deal.

$35 for seniors on Tuesday, $50 (includes lunch) regular weekday rate. Second time playing this course and I still really like the layout and the variety of the two nines. However, I was a little disappointed in the shape of the course. Holes #16 and #18 really need work on the fairways, as there are huge dirt spots over the majority of the holes. Hole #3 also has some spots, but centralized in one area. With a little TLC and a creative superintendent, this course could be repaired and be a real gem. It's a bit of a drive from the DC area, but once the course is in better shape, it will be worth it. The greens are quick and pretty true, but below the hole is best. I'll be back, but think I'll wait unti the Fall...when the views will be beautiful with the Fall foliage. Pace of play was good today--4 hrs.

This course is a hidden gem! The two nines are very different--the front nine is like a mountain course with steep elevation changes and very few flat lies; the back nine has lots of water, bunkers, and the feel of a Myrtle Beach course. The views from the front nine, in particular, are breathtaking. The pro shop is in a log cabin built in 1733, and the Cafe is in a historical house built in 1773. The staff are friendly, helpful, and exude Southern hospitality. This course is worth the drive, challenging to play (tips are 7059 with a slope and rating of 75.0 and 141), unbelievable views, and just fun to play. The tee boxes and greens were in great shape, the bunkers had nice sand (although there were a couple on the back which had some grass growing in them), and the fairways were manicured nicely, but do have some minor spots where the grass is growing back in. It's not enough to detract from the experience. What a great course! Try it out. Seniors play on Tuesdays for $35, and the rest of the week it's $50, which includes lunch. I will definitely be back.

This is one of the finest courses that we have ever played, on a par with the best
in the D.C area. While it is a bit of a toot down Rt. 29, it's worth it. The course is great and challenging, the setting is fantastic, and the staff is great too. This is the last design of Sam Snead, although Tom Fazio had to step in after Sam's demise and finish it. Put this course on your must-play list as we did soon after it opened, and we've been back to play it the last two years. Check out their golf package at the Elston Inn at Sweet Briar. One note of warning: be prepared for very fast and undulating greens-they take a bit getting used to. Gas and golf index carpooling from Arlington was $55. If this course was closer to D.C., I probably wouldn't be able to afford it...
