Playing here, our customers know they will receive one of the best possible golfing experiences available. This is due to our attentive staff and the systems we have in place to provide excellent customer service at every opportunity. From the Bag drop, to the First Tee, to the maintenance crewmember, to the General Manager, to the grill attendant, the focus of our staff is to serve the customer and help them enjoy our facilities to the fullest, so they will tell their friends and want to return time and time again. Thoroughly renowned for the service we provide, outing coordinators and event planners will constantly seek us out. We will dazzle them with our attentiveness and concern for the success of their events. Coming to our club will be a sensation that their attendees will talk about for years to come.

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 for your comments. We strive to provide the very best course conditions possible.

After aerification, we always keep the greens a little slower until they grow back in and can handle extremely low mowing heights... More
