“So beautiful, even bad play seems pretty!”

Great course, great staff, great atmosphere. I expected the UVA/Boar's Head environment to be very stuffy but everyone was friendly and welcoming. Ask Ace, the starter, for a history and geography lesson.

“Dont get above the hole!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 11, 2012

This has become a damn difficult track. Greens are Augusta slick and the roughs demand a wedge or so just to get out of--so don't get in them. The fees are too high for the layout--it is a good golf course, but not a great one.

I don't golf, but the golfers I know love this course. Expensive, but exceptionally beautiful.

“Rated one of America's Top College Golf Courses in America!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2012

And with good reason. This is a fun layout except that you don't want to walk the back nine unless you like to carry your bag hundreDs of yeards from the green to the next tee! Holes are challenging, beautifully designed and well kept as only government money can afford these days. This beautiful course could not survive as a private enterprise, but as long as those government dollars flow, this is a gem. Keep paying those high taxes folks, and you too can play golf on a GREAT COURSE!
