Was in town for a wedding and had an afternoon to kill. Great way to do so. Fun, challenging course and the greens (11/27/14) were in great shape and quick. Would definitely play again. Only thing holding the course back from 5 stars is there were a lot of stinkbugs all over our carts.

This is a must for golfers. It serves as the home course for the Univ. of Virginia golf teams. Felt highly welcomed by super friendly staff. An absolutely beautiful course that plays well - challenging and fair. Play from the tees that best suit your game, and enjoy a great day of golf. I'll be back!

Wonderful golf course. The staff was extremely friendly and provided tips on playing the course since we were from out of town. The fairways and greens were in excellent condition. Rental clubs were in great shape (Callaway). Very enjoyable round.

Put this course on your bucket list of places to play. It really is special and started the moment I pulled into the parking lot. The fairways, greens, greens and everything about this course is great. Special thanks to Phil, the players assistant for giving tips and advice on the course.

Food is just like any other golf course but the golfing is great. Make sure you arrive in golfing attire or they won't let you golf on their course.

My wife and I played Birdwood 7/25/13. We only played the front nine but took the cart through the back nine. The course is in great condition and everyone was very friendly. Iseemed a little pricey ($40 per person for 9 holes) for a weekday. There is no senior rate. Very nice facility run by UVA.

Had a good round here among nice scenery, especially on the back nine. Loved the elevated tees on some holes

This course is always in great condition; this time of year it is exceptional. Has an excellent practice facility, but that is reserved for the UVa. Golf team in season. Very challenging course, but with multiple tees you can still have fun with a mixed group.

This course is terrific. The practice facility (the UVA team's home course) is on par with any top end resort. It has a private club feel. The views are great and the course is challenging but not unfair.
