4.0 out of
After reading some mediocre reviews and then playing Augustine for the first time today, I wanted to post my own review. I really enjoyed my time there today. Called this morning and asked if they could accommodate a single. The woman said "no problem, just come on out." After bypassing the bag drop, a guy came out to greet me and take my clubs. The starter was a very nice guy and asked if I wanted to go out alone or be paired up. I said I didn't care. He said I could head out immediately or hit some complimentary balls, my choice. I hit some balls and by that time another single had come in and we were paired up. At the end of the round, the same guy that met me in the parking lot cleaned my clubs as we putted out on 18. As for service, I thought it was really top notch.
As for the course, I thought it was a nice track overall. Fair, pretty, mostly in good shape. There were some issues. Two of the greens were in very rough shape, but based on the overall condition of most of the greens, the fairways and tee boxes, it seems that was due to circumstances out of their control and not neglect. And #9 was a temporary green because they are replacing it. They were upfront about it, had 8 guys working on it when we passed by, and apologized for the temporary green. All the water coolers were full of ice cold water, although disappointingly, many of the ball washers were dry.
Aside from a few picky things, I paid $60 and was very pleased with the experience. Even though I live 35 miles away in Alexandria, I'll be back.
