“What can I say, this course is bound to close”

Ranked #9 of 12 Outdoor Activities in Luray

Reviewed October 2, 2013

Our group of 13 made our annual trip here for our marathon of 7 rounds in 4 days. The course is in rough shape to put it kindly. Grass on the tee boxes is virtually non-existent, especially on number 2.
The greens were deseased again this year and are not improving. There were a few of the bunkers where new white sand had been added but most of the traps are filled with ground clay and rocks, no fun if you find yourself in them. The staff are as nice as they can be and we never had an issue with any of the carts. This is a tough layout. If you are 65 and older swallow your pride and hit from the gold tees unless you are absolutely even length wise with the group you are playing with. You have to be an absolute beast to reach any of the 5's in two. We had some long hitters in our group and no one did even during our afternoon scrambles. Our Sunday morning round took nearly 5 1/2 hours. We made contact with the ranger once we reached hole 10 and there were 4 groups backed up on the tee. The ranger rode forward and found the problem but did not push the group ahead a hole to ease everyone elses pain.
If you are looking for views and tough test, give it a shot. If you are looking for a top notch course you may have to go to Shadows of Blue Ridge in Front Royal 25 minutes north on 340

Recently visited this golf course and what a sight. Fairways are green and are in good shape. Greens are in a lot better shape than a lot of courses I have played. Staff was excellent and was told that a major storm went through last year which knocked the power out which caused them to have no water, but you cannot tell this know.

I read that the course is under new management, spent four days there last week and it is not helping much. A lot of the greens were virtually none puttable. So deseased and bare that it was comical. This course is hard enough with the greens being in such bad shape.
The traps have no drainage at all. The area experienced rain Thursday night and then gorgeous weather from then on, played Sunday and ALL traps were still filled with water.
The staff try to be nice and they have upgraded the food selections.
The group I played with have been doing this fall trip for 21 years, now looking to go elsewhere next year, that should tell you something. The scenery around hole number 6 might be worth playing it once.

So the views are the only good thing about this golf course. It is poorly maintained. Fairways and greens are in poor shape. Several of the greens actually had holes that some kind of flying insects were going in and out of. Ball washers are about every 4th hole. The only real bathrooms are in the club house. The yard markers are only on the cart paths at 200, 150 and 100 making it impossible to know exactly how close you are.

A difficult course. No driving range. We arrived after storm damage, so probably can't give a fair review. The staff was terrific.
