Excellent public course connected to UVA. Five tee boxes ranging from 5,075 yards to 6,920 yards. Tee boxes, fairways and greens were in good condition. Pace of play was under 4 hours. We would play it again if we ever came back to Charlottesville.

This golf course is challenging and fun to play. Many blind shots and the par threes are spectacular. I played it twice.

When I went to law school here, current UVA students could get a semester, all-you-can-play pass for $200. As a result, I played at least the front nine nearly every Monday through Thursday afternoon. I remain a surprisingly bad golfer despite all that practice. The...More
