Always enjoy playing here. The greens can us some patching but overall very satisfied.

Nice layout, good scenery
The course had a nice layout. Some long par 4's mixed in with a few easier ones. Par 3's were challenging with the elevation changes. Few par 5's were 3 shot holes and others you could get to in two. Greens were fast and true, people could use a lesson on fixing ball marks though. Bunkers had nice sand, just maybe not enough. Fairway bunkers were placed very well to catch the errant tee shots.
Enjoyable course, used every club in the bag, would play again if the price was better. Even with a golfnow deal it was pricey.

First time playing a great course
It was the first time I played this Fairfax County course. I had a great time. It could have been more challenging if I hadn't played with someone who has played the course before and gave some very helpful hints. I am a casual player and play probably 2 to 3 times a month. I was hitting the ball great and chipped it on the 18th green even though it was raining. The facilities were great. The only concern I have about the course applies to the users. The greens could have been better if the player would repair their ball marks. However, it was a challenging and fun course to play and I will play it again.

big boy golf course
marginal shots WILL BE PUNISHED. you can score in places, and you can put up big numbers in others. you will be faced with shots that don't fit your eye, sooner or later. you'll know the state of your game as you play, and when you're finished.

Great Public/County Course
This course carved out of old Prison grounds so that is unique. It is a really great course. It has challenging holes and focused putting is a must for scoring. A few forced carries off tee but fair if getting ball up into air. Visually attractive and quiet course. Do have a GPS or Laser Range Finder with you because yardage markers are intermittent and there are no 150 yard poles for determining distances to green. Greens roll true and a little fast. Like a lot of public courses would be better if people would fix their divots! Wonderful Northern Virginia option for golf-- better than many of the Myrtle Beach courses.

Greens need maintenace
The greens were pretty chewed up. For what we paid, I would have expected something better.

Beautifully Tough Course
Stunning course which is well cared for yet is very challenging for playing on the first round. Lots of undulating hills and blind tees which often play 2 clubs more (or less) than the yardage would suggest. I recommend playing with someone who knows the course and try not to get too fancy. Keep it in play as the rough...is rough. Don't expect to find your ball if it travels a few feet into the rhubarb...it is gone.

Nice wide fairways, large well kept greens and a longer than average holes is how I think of this course. It was a great day for golf last Saturday and we highly enjoyed our round.
