Did a return visit there this past fall, after first playing it a while ago. I was disappointed to see that the achitect's original course routing has been changed. The course used to finish on a challenging and interesting par 5 hole, now it finishes on a an uninteresting short layup par 4 hole. Disappointing to finish a match play... More

Thank you for your comments about Blue Ridge Shadows and your thoughts on our routing change. I agree that the original design finishing on the original 18th hole (now the 14th) was a much stronger finishing hole for the better player. That being said, our reasoning behind the change was twofold. The first was that changing the routing improved the... More

We live outside of Washington DC in Maryland, so this was a road trip golf day and totally worth it. Enjoy the drive and the fall colors and you will be greeted by the friendliest staff we may have ever met. From the Starter to the cooks everyone wanted to talk. We got there at 11:00am so the morning groups... More

Thank you! We try very hard to provide great service. One of the great things about Blue Ridge Shadows is the view that you have of the mountains from virtually everywhere on the course. Our wrap-around clubhouse features outdoor dining overlooking the waterfall and 18th green. Try our home-made, house smoked pork bbq or beef brisket on your next trip.... More

We had our daughters wedding on the 18th of Blue Ridge Shadows Golf Club. Mike is the ultimate general manager and club pro. His assistant pros Angela and James were unbelievable in accommodating our every request and needs. It was a perfect day. The golf cart parade of bridesmaids and groomsmen made it perfect.

There are 6 courses within a five mile radius; this is the most challenging and the priciest. It is well maintained, though the fairways had a lot of unrepaired divots, presumably from a large group playing that day. Roughs were cut shorter than usual and were dry from recent weather, allowing some shots to roll into the woods. Greens are... More

Arrived on a Friday around Noon to a clubhouse with a bustling vibe. Always a good sign that the course is busy and tee times filled up. We had no problem getting out on time.

Thank you for your comments. We strive to provide the very best course conditions possible. We did have a very busy August and had performed a recent aerification on the greens to promote the health of the turf. After aerification, we always keep the greens a little slower until they grow back in and can handle extremely low mowing heights... More

My wife and I just spent a long weekend playing the course and had a great time. The course is beautiful and challenging. Strategic shots definitely needed over pure distance on many holes.

Clubhouse staff was cordial and accommodating to get food prepared in time for our tee time. We had to cut short at 16th due to thunderstorms but the course design is challenging and scenic. Interesting Par 3s and elevation separation from the tee boxes to the greens. Great views of Blue Ridge mountains as you play. Will go back when... More

I'm a low-handicapper who played from the longest tees, where the course runs 7,200 yards. I thought it was a challenging course that required some interesting shots. There is a 250 yd par 3 and a whopper of a 489 yard par 4, so bring your long irons and hybrids. The greens rolled nicely but were very slow, perhaps because... More
