The course is a challenge, but enjoyable. This was the 2nd time our group did a package deal here. I do want to give you a warning however!! On the 18th green, it is elevated and there is a grassy area up behind it. There is also a hidden hole, that is filled with long grass in it. I was... More

The views were wonderful but the greens were not well maintained...so the golf and cart charges were excessive given the courses condition....

Thank you for posting your review, and I'm sorry you didn't enjoy the greens on your last visit. We take great pride in providing a great experience for every customer on every visit, and on occasion we fall short. I have spoken with several golfers who indicate that our greens are now really smooth and fast. So as the weather... More

My dad and I played the course this morning and loved it. Every hole offered us unique opportunities to hit draws, fades, and I would rate this as a shot makers course. We will make this course part of the rotation for our birthday weekend. We were surprised to see players before us not filling in divots on tee boxes... More

Thank you so much for your kind words, and we are thrilled you enjoyed the golf course. Our staff works very hard to provide a wonderful experience and like most golf courses, we spend a lot of time fixing what our golfer leave us with; divots, ball marks and unraked bunkers. Thank you again and we hope to see you... More

We played Blue Ridge Shadows once last year and again today with a Groupon, which made it a good value. The course was interesting, a bit challenging, and fairly well maintained, but we will never return. Both tee times were for Sunday around noon. We drove over a hour from the Northern VA area and planned to stretch and warm... More

Thank you for your comments, and please accept our sincere apology for the less than excellent experience you had on Sunday. Unfortunately, as you indicated, our practice range requires us to exclusively hand-pick balls. On Saturday night we had a heavy rains late in the evening and were unable to pick the range completely. This caused us to have a... More

Played the course for the first time this afternoon.(8-29*14) Loved the course. We were fine till the 14th hole. That's when the "starter" came up and told us we needed to pick up the pace. Keep in mind this was the first time there and we had a two sum ( man & lady) in front of us and we... More

Please accept my sincere apology for the way our starter/player assistant handled the pace of play during your recent visit. We pride ourselves on providing friendly, efficient service at every opportunity, and obviously in your case we 'shanked' the ball. I have used your experience as a teachable moment for our entire staff, as your satisfaction is our primary goal... More

Very challenging course that is well maintained. Golf pro and other management folks were excellent. The grill onsite provides convenient food that is well prepared. Nice to have lunch and round of golf in such a friendly atmosphere.

Drove up from Stuarts Draft, VA and the greens had very recently been aerified. Obviously that has to happen a couple of times a year but a mention of it on the website or from the staff who took my tee time would have been polite. Nothing more frustrating than driving an hour and half to play freshly aerified greens.... More

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

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
