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 front nine is an easy walk. The back nine is a hike with significant elevation... More

We stayed at The Boar's Head and thoroughly enjoyed this venue. The best fairways and greens we played in Virginia. The course is in excellent condition. Well organized and accommodating.

We did the stay and play package at the Boars Head Inn, which included a round at Birdwood. The Golf course is beautiful, well maintained and managed. Start times were on time and the marshalls were always available to keep things moving along. The course is challenging but would definitely recommend, I'm sure it is a wonderful to play in... More

Absolutely one of the nicest courses I have played. If you are looking for a trip to play golf this is it. Bent Grass tee boxes, fairways and greens. The greens must be close to a 13 but very receptive to approach shots.

My brother and I were in town for a holiday visit with our parents and decided to play golf since the weather was warm over the Christmas weekend. We called and easily got a tee time and a $45.00 winter weekend rate. They have a huge driving range that we put to good use. They also had a wonderful chipping... More

Birdwood is a fine course, but the back nine which winds into the uplands away from the highway is unmatched in Virginia. The golfer feels like he or she has gotten away from civilization as the holes play in varied directions with absolutely not house of OB. The island green is a highlight as are various other shots featuring change... More

I have played here several times since it opened. I have never played well when I have been here, but that is mostly my fault. The greens are in very good shape and the fairways are nicely groomed. The front nine is definitely easier than the back, but both sides have some interesting holes.

Came into town for a football game and had some time for a round of golf and my buddy set us up a noon tee time, it's a bit chilly in Charlottesville in late November but the course was very well maintained for a university course and the course is quite challenging and fun, we actually came back the next...

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!
