Wanna go back without snow
Played with a big storm bearing down so the course was wide open for the front nine. Got stuck behind the only foursome on the entire course on the back nine that refused to let me play through. Kind of lame when it's 35 degrees. I figure most people will play on an average day though so I have no idea what pace of play would normally be like.
Course was in great shape and the greens rolled really true. I just wish I could have played it without the sleet and snow bearing down on the last five holes. It's just a little pricey for regular play.

Fantastic course; not at Bushwood, Sir!
You can't knock anything here with regards to design or maintenance. If you want game testing firmness/fastness, then you will certainly find it at Laurel Hill. And, in my estimation, you won't find two greater holes than 9 and 14 in the entire state.
The problem with Laurel Hill is the all encompassing elitism that pervades here. With the exception of the maintenance staff and food service staff, the employees and volunteers certainly exhibit the sense of entitlement seldom seen since the downturn of the golf economy.
10 years ago, it wasn't uncommon to see a shop pro or starter put on airs of superiority. But now, while most courses have made sweeping adjustments to encourage growth of the golf landscape, here is a county course that seems to be stuck in it's own ugly past.
I will continue to golf Laurel Hill, solely due to what the golf course offers. It's a shame that such a fantastic layout doesn't have to play by the same rules as many other local offerings, because I have personally rediscovered some less attractive courses due to their renewed emphasis on PR.

Difficult but fair
This course is fairly challenging but has mostly interesting, fair holes.

Winter golf in NoVa
Got out and played on a hot deal the first day after the course was reopened following the snow. Stsaff was friendly, and the course played fine. I think I was one of two singles out on the 18, so not sure if the pace was a realistic measure. Will be back in the future definitely!

Bring your short game
Course is in decent shape, greens are very tricky. Driving range is pretty bad, course plsys well. Somewhat overpriced.

This course impresses me every time I play it. The fairways are well kept and the greens are fast and tricky. The bunkers were redone and are in perfect condition. I have never seen it in bad shape ever! It is a great place for tournaments and it is by far the best course in Northern Virginia.
