This more of a comment than a review. Has Virginia Oaks Management ever fixed the leaking water on the back side of the course. I forgot the hole that it was on...but it was leaking water for at least a year.

Cost: Used the Tee Time Golf Pass to get the $39.00 Fee

Overview: I visited the course last year during its renovation of the Club House. They flipped the course around - Back Nine is the new Front and so on. Fast forward to 2016 - They flipped the course back to its original design.. Opening Par 4 near the Club House.

Fairways & Bunkers: They made some major renovations and removals of bunkers. They also cut a bunch of trees and brush down to open up the course. As for the remaining bunkers - its dirt with a little sand. So, don't get bent out of shape if you are hitting hard back dirt with a S-wedge

Tee Boxes: They are making minor adjustments to the Tees, Red are moved up to a fairway or back on a separate box. White is a little back from the Red, Blue and Black on the original tee boxes.

Greens: They truly need to work on all the green. Virginia Oaks always had green issues and this is no different from years past.

Restaurant: Because of our previous experience with the renovated restaurant, we decided to have lunch. Last year when we had lunch, we had Steak & Cheese, with a thinly cut steak, which was amazing. Today - OMG - It looked like minced steak, in a Cheese sauce on a roll. AWFUL. DON'T GET THE STEAK AND CHEESE.

Virginia Oaks under new Management. Major changes to the Club House, which was completely renovated. The Course has also changed. They flipped the course around, the old Back Nine is the new Front Nine and the Old Front Nine is the new Back Nine. They are currently removing or shortening some of the Bunkers. They have also reduced the Tee Boxes, Red, Silver, Blue and Black. Several of the old Tee Boxes were under repair for leveling. Greens on our visit was super fast. Fairways were well groomed and fast. The Rough was about an inch.

Club House and Deck: The changes made were amazing. Its clear Virginia Oaks is not only a Golf destination, but a place for the community to have cocktails or dinner. The New menu will surprise everyone, because the food is first class. After our round we sat outside on the Deck and watched golfers coming in on the Par 3 18th.

Fairway Review: The only reason I gave 4 stars, were the Bunkers being filled in. However, the fairways were well maintained and running fast. BTW: On the 13th, Par 4, they cut the trees down near the hole. You have a total view of the water and RTJ. Fantastic.

Cost: Used the Tee Time Golf Book for the $39.00 Weekday discount.

Course Conditions: The course was in great condition. I would have given the Greens a 5 Star, but they have not rolled the greens, so its fast and bumpy.

Fairways: I would say the fairways are between 2 - 3 inches..

Pace of Play: Without a Marshall to patrol the course, some people don't follow pace of play. In today's round, we had two groups in front and they were very slow. Behind was a two players trying to pass everyone. At one point one of the morons hit into our group and made up some sort of BS about pace of play when we were 1 shot out from the group in front of us.

Virginia Oaks needs a Marshall on the course to manage players and keep things moving.

Previous reviewers are right about Virginia Oaks being a great track with conditioning and pace of play issues. But, anytime a course takes special care to keep the greens playable after they have been aerated, they gotta be doing something right. Course was in good condition for this time of year, and, as I wrote, the greens were also in good condition...actually quite fast. And sand in the bunkers! The staff has always been great, and I'm just glad I don't have to play this on weekends when they continue to have pace of play issues...but then this is not an easy course.

Before I give my review - Virginia Oaks has always been a great place to play and it has its share of issues.

Pros: The Staff continues to amaze me. I certainly give the Staff in the Pro Shop, Cart Girl and Kitchen 5 Stars.

Cons: The course is damaged, from Closed or Dirt/Sand Tee Boxes and or patchy greens. The lack of Marshals patroling the course continues to amaze me, given the fact it could be a 5 to 6 hour round, depending on Pace of Play. The Cart GPS is a nightmade with so many commercials or warnings.

Decided to journey out and check who was open a few days after the major storm, which hit DC. Went to Twinlakes and was so surprised the condition of the course and the work they had put in on the day before to remove down trees. The course was in great shape and like always, the staff at Twinlakes are great. The only thing was partially closed was the kitchen, which had electrical problems because of the storm.

A member of my foursome played Virginia Oaks last Fall and was quite disappointed with the course conditions. So, we had to check it out, and were very happy to discover that it was in very good shape for this time of year. We may be in the minority, but we think this is one of the better, reasonably priced courses in Northern Virginia. Full disclosure, we're Seniors and play on weekdays. FYI, Billy Casper Management has is now managing the Prince William municipal courses.

Once the greens recover from being aerated and the bunkers dry out, Virginia Oaks should be in its usual top shape. As a previous reviewer wrote, this course is one of the better deals in Northern Virginia. We play Virginia National next week, and, since no one seems to have played it of late, we will be interested to see how it is recovering from its recent problems.

Overall, I was impressed with the conditions at Virginia Oaks considering the heat and lack of rain. I also consider this to be one of the better values for golf in the NOVA area especially on weekends. Worth a trip.

Played here for the first time. I am a former low handicap player. This is an interesting layout, but much too difficult for the average golfer. As expected, Pete Dye's layout here leaves you begging for your driver to be long and accurate. If so, reasonable iron lengths to the somewhat large green, but incredibly undulating and sloped greens, coupled with difficult pin placements can easily lead to a long day of frustration. Whoever set the pins on this play date must have had a fight with his/her significant other the night before. The practice facilities are in very fair condition. It seems clear that this course was probably in great shape when it was first created, but has fallen on difficult times and it shows in its maintenance. Dye would probably cringe if he saw it the way it is now. Despite all of this, at $49 after 3 pm on a Saturday, it is a very good test for the better golfer. If you are a 15-20 handicap or lower, you can get yourself around the course as long as you can drive the ball decently. Anything more, and you will be punished by this layout. The GPS system in the carts was appreciated, but the distances it gave contradicted fairway markers and tee box distance markers.

This course is certainly a great course to play. The Billy Caspers Group has spent money keeping this course updated with its GPS Systems, Fairway and Greens improvements and additional staff to make your round enjoyable. BTW: Make sure to try the Steak and Cheese Sub when making the turn, its a winner.

Virginia Oaks is a great place to play. The staff are helpful and the Food is great. The only problem with this place would be Players trying to sneak out on the back nine. Yesterday, when we came off the 9th and headed to the 10th, we were greeted by a couple. We asked who they were and for some reason they acted like they could not speak english. So, one of our players spoke Korean to them and they told him, they were told by the starter to start at the 10th. So, we called the Pro Shop and they sent a Manager out to check what was going on. The Manager told the couple they should never come tot he 10th and the starter never told them to start on the 10th, so they needed to go in. I think if Virginia Oaks has a Players Marshal, he/she should check the carts - Start Time, and where they are at when he comes across them. If the cart in question did not start on the front, send them to the front.

Well maintain course on the green and on the fairway but the rough was very difficult to get out of. They needed to trim it a bit. Challenging course with challenging greens. Shot my worse score this season.

I think Virginia Oaks has turned the corner. The nice day brought myself and my golf buddies to play golf. There was still some signs of the winter (snow cover in some shade areas) It was good to be out. The greens were the fastest that I have ever played. I will be back with friends.

They charged $95, but offer you a $220 deal which includes 2 other rounds and another for free. The course was not in good shape so we asked for our money back for the additional package which they took care of. They then offered us coupons for another free round.

Based on previous reviews, we approached Virginia Oaks with some trepidation on a beautiful sunny day. Considering the fact that they didn't have any rain during August, I think the course was in pretty good condition. Sure, the greens have been aerated and the sand was washed out by the recent rains, the traps very very hard because they hadn't dried out yet, and they had thatched the rough around the greens. But this is a good, playable course despite what others reviewers have written when it's in good condition. It probably ranks as one of my top five courses in Northern Virginia. Gas and golf index carpooling from Arlington was $37($33 greens fee on a coupon and the rest for gas).

We played Virginia Oaks in Gainesville, VA on Labor Day 2008. After checking in, we waited 40 minutes for a breakfast sandwich since the cook didn't arrive until 9 am and nobody bothered to fire up the grill.
We had a 10 AM tee time and got to the first tee about twenty minutes late. The course was not in good condition. The fairways hadn't been mowed for at least a week. We had trouble locating balls in the fairways due to the tall fairway grass. The tee boxes were horrible, the markers were placed so the tees were below or above my feet and few if any divots were filled in. The bunkers were resembled concrete. Slow play was rampant. The round took over 5 hours to complete. All this for $94 per person? I'll probably not be return...

Course not in as great shape as it was at the beginning of the year. Fairways were very hard and is really showing course wear from all of the play this year. Some of the greens were nice but had a lot of ball marks.

Our party of 8 got bumped due to a corporate outing, and they were totally good about it and gave us half-price green fees for another day; we used that this week. The course and greens were in very good condition. Its not a long course and you can score well without a driver; which means a couple of the par-5's are birdie-reachable for the avg golfer; from the gold tees, you can tee off w/ a long iron from many of the holes. This is a good golf course in good condition.

I did not like the course layout. It was really short but good shots into the green were not rewarded. The houses on the course are really close to you. The greens are tough to find a line to the hole.

Courses around here are still in winter condition, and Virginia Oaks was no exception. Still, the greens putted pretty well, the fairways were OK though soggy from a lot of recent rains.

I play VA Oaks quite a bit and overall it's a fun course to play and when it's in perfect condition it's quite nice and challenging. The twilight rates are pretty reasonable, though like almost all courses around here the pace of play is pretty slow, rarely under 4.5 hours.

After a 5+ hour round in the middle of the day on a Thursday, I have time to reflect. The greens were in above average conditions and the fairways were in average conditions. The rough was comprised of brown, dry grass. With an 11:00 tee time, we took the tee box well after 11:15. We knew it was going to be a long (and hot) round. With the coupon out of the Washington Post, this is a value.
Very average. 'Nuff said.
