Course has matured nicely
I hadn't played there in several years, and the fairways are much better than back then. Greens had been played hard, but were in pretty good shape.

Greens are small but fairways are nice, No WATER AND NO CART GIRL?

I really wanted to like this course, but....
Slow pace of play absolutely killed any enjoyment from this round. It took my playing partner and I over 5 1/2 hours to play 18. After reading other reviews it seems that overbooking is a huge problem here on the weekends. I would like to revisit during the week when it is less crowded. Someone else also mentioned that the prices of the course bring out a lot of beginning players that should not be playing such a challenging course. I agree with that as well. This is not a course for beginners!!! It has a lot of hazards, there are bunkers all over the course, a lot of water on the front 9 and the back 9 is surrounded by woods.

It took over 4 hrs for 14 holes. Left course because of wait

Course in great condition considering recent rainfall in the area.
Some standing water in a few areas, but not enough to interfere with play. Course was in great condition! Will be back to play again. Great value for the money.

Front and Back - 2 different styles
Played Richmond Forest this past weekend with my girlfriend and it was enjoyable and frustrating all at the same time. As I would like to list these out in a pros and cons section, it would take forever.
The most notable changes I saw in the course was the difference in the front and back 9's. The front is more open, but WATER will not be your friend. The layout winds around small creeks and lakes/ponds and can test your accuracy. The back 9 gives you the sanctuary of the forest and is lined with tall trees. Miss-hits and driving through a dogleg will leave you chopping wood (kidding).
At last, the pace of play could have been managed better. I think I would enjoy walking a round here (they have a lot of specials for walkers!), it's flat and manageable.
Overall, enjoyable Sunday outing. Affordable snacks/brews, friendly staff, challenging and forgiving holes. It will leave you smiling and grinding your teeth throughout the round, but hey, it's golf!

water and dog legs
Great course. Challenging approaches that are guarded by water or trees on several of the front 9. Course was in very good shape, Back nine less challenging than the front, but still great. Excellent value.
