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.

Got to play here, recently and loved the course. The folks in the pro shop were very friendly and accomodating. I played as a single and was paired with two guys from Baltimore. We had a great time together. The course is laid out over very rolling terrain and the blue tees are all you could ask for. The par... More

I have played Birdwood about 6 or 7 times over the last 10 years or so, and nearly always found it in good or even excellent shape. And it IS a beautiful golf course, especially the back 9. But I played it on August 28th, 2012 (during a VSGA tournament, no less), and was overall disappointed. Greens were merely decent,... More

The front nine seemed like a different course than the back nine. I shot lights out on the front nine. On the back, well... Note that the back nine are much more hilly than the front. So, I recommend concentrating on put the ball in a flat spot. I wish I had been more consistent in doing so!!

Birdwood has been around for a long time but I had not had the chance to play it until last weekend. The course enjoys a well-deserved reputation for a fair, challenging, and well-maintained layout. The course is walkable although some holes have pretty good hikes between greens and tees. In keeping with old line Virginia, the course can be classified... More
