White tees made it very easy to score
I'm a huge fan of this course. The practice facilities are great, the tee boxes are level, most of the fairways are tight, and the greens are almost always fast & true. Yesterday was no different. The greens were in the best shape I've seen in a while and besides a tiny backup, we didn't wait on any holes to play. I typically would play the blue tees on this course, but my two playing partners opted for the whites. There was a huge difference between the tees which made me pull out a hybrid instead of a driver many times. Shot the best round of my life (72) and look forward to coming back before the leaves fall

You can get better for the money...
Got a discount to play and even then overpriced. I paid around $80 vs. the typical weekend $100 + rate . Why I rated the course poorly:
Extremely slow pace of play. Went off around 7 and finished just before noon. Paired with some nice guys. The notion of ready golf is a foreign concept - and there were no marshals to encourage a faster pace of play. Hit/wait... hit/wait...
Greens have ball marks everywhere. Doesn't anyone else who plays here repair ball marks? Apparently very few.
And using the sand containers on your carts appears to be an afterthought for most. I went thru 2 plus part of a third. Taking care of my divots and several others. Since I was waiting so much, easy to do.
Fairways would be in better condition if people took a bit of time to fill divots, and given the pace, you have the time.
Tee boxes were pretty beat up when I played. Again a few scoops of sand would help. And it is right there....
Speaking of sand. Same goes for raking the bunkers. When I was in one, I could tell precisely where the folks who there before treaded and shot from. Rakes = another foreign object apparently.
Course is penal for shots that go just off the fairway or green. With 6 pars and4 bogeys, I shot a 91. Have not had that many doubles/triples in many years. Water comes into play on most holes as does thick vegetation. In some cases if you are more than 10-12 feet off the fairway, your ball is wet or un-findable. And sometimes even hitting the sides of the fairway, you get odd almost sideways bounces on pretty well struck shots.
Other reviews I read describe the course as "gimmicky" or "shoe-horned in". It kind of does have that feel.
Practice area, club house, snack bar were OK, on the upscale side which one would expect. Staff much friendlier to locals who play frequently than to strangers.

Difficult putting, fair course
Only thing I was disappointed in was that there were no rangers out on the course pushing slow groups. Conditions were pretty good. Large greens with some tough reads. Fast greens this day. Fairways are in nice shape. Bunkers perfect.

Great weather, well kept course and many water hazard challenges made this a fun and exciting course to play !

For the experience the fees was overpriced by 25%. Great friendly staff, club house and practice facilities, but the course needs some upkeep for the fees that is charged.

very nice course
This certainly isn't the cheapest course in the area, but with a golfnow deal, it's a great value for the money. This is a top notch facility with a well maintained course and a nice layout. Not a neighborhood course, rather a wilderness environment tucked into the middle of Ashburn. The course was in great condition, especially considering the amount of traffic it gets. Will definitely play here again.

I love this place
There is water in play on a lot of holes, it makes it so fun though and the people are nice. This place gets the Mannyo seal of approval :-)

Course was in good shape!
Course is not overly long but there is plently of challenging holes on the course. The course is close to the airport and conveniently located off of 28.
