Bull Run Golf Club
bull run is back
it had been a while since I had last played bull run because the course had been allowed to deteriorate over the previous several seasons. I heard it was under new management, and decided to give it a try. we were very pleased with conditions. it reminded me of bull run in the good old days. wouldn't hesitate to plan future excursions there at all. ps, it must have rain 2 inches after 6 holes. we waited it out, and except for the bunkers, the course drained very well.

Bull Run continues to exceed expectations
Bull Run continues to be a great, fun, and challenging course. Good for intermediate through advanced golfer. My son played the blue tee's and I played the whotes. During the round we picked up 2 other golfers to make a foursome.
I was impressed with the condition of the course given that it is mid August. Several other local courses are in poor shape, but Bull Run was in very good shape. Only the rough was distressed. Fairways, greens, and tee's were very good.
I hope you enjoy Bull Run as much as I did

Great course for the cost
I recently planned a small golf outing for a group of my coworkers. After some research I ultimately selected Bull Run for a few reasons...
1) Excellent practice facility: Unlimited range balls included in Golfnow fee, nice pitch/chip area with a couple of bunkers, and a huge, very well maintained putting surface.
2) Course rating: I was playing with a group of intermediate to advanced golfers (10-15 handicaps) so I was looking for a place that would be challenging, but wouldn't cause anyone to do anything that they would regret in front of their coworkers (throw a club, loose all their balls on the front 9...).
3) Cost: Unfortunately, this was not a company sponsored event, and as a result, I wanted to try and avoid a big price tag that would discourage people from participating in the event.
I can say wholeheartedly that I made a great choice. The course was in great condition. I would have said excellent if not for some pretty rough fairway and green side bunkers. However, one of the greens keepers told us that they were going to be redoing all of the bunkers in the Fall of 2014. The course offers 5 sets of tees which impact not only the total distance, but the playing angles as well. We played 36 holes, 18 from the tips (black) and 18 from the one forward (blue). The second 18 felt like I was playing a completely different course. As a result of the magnitude of strategically placed fairway bunkers, both sets of tees presented unique challenges while still remaining relatively playable. This course is located a little further out (from DC) than several of their most comparable competitors. However, it is definitely worth the drive. I will certainly play Bull Run again, and have recommended it to others without hesitation.

nice links style course
Bull Run golf course is a great place to play if you like links golf. Some holes are in the trees but what do you expect in the foot hills of the Shenandoah mts.

Not worth full price, as conditions were average at best. Rough was bare in many places, greens inconsistent rocks in sand traps. Turned on sprinklers on number 9 on a Saturday mid day. Can't imagine there is not a better time to do this!
No sandwiches made at turn forced to eat an average hot dog in order to keep things moving. Never saw a ranger all day
Only play if you get a Golf Now deal!

My golfing partner and I really enjoyed this course. The course was in great condition and was quite challenging. The pace of play was a bit slow (Friday morning), but aside from that it was a very fun and interesting course. The fees could have been a bit lower, but overall a great outing !
