Very pleasantly surprised

Pros: Conditions were perfect today. The course was mowed beautifully. All holes are fair par 3s . There are lots of elevation changes here, so you'll definitely get your exercise. There is apparently new signage here - Each hole is very well marked and there are direction arrows to the next hole on each sign. The out of bounds areas are very forgiving and not a single disc was lost today from four amateurs.
Cons: The tees are loose gravel, but not bad. Some of the wooded holes could use some trees thinned out. Lots of poison ivy and BIG briers. Be careful.
Other Thoughts: This is my first review of a course. I felt like I had to rate this course because of the negative reviews here. I wasn't really expecting much, but I had more fun here today than i have had a many of the other courses in the area. There has obviously been work done here since the other reviews. If you are in the area, do yourself a favor and check out this course. I can't wait to go back!

A great course for anyone.
Pros: This is a very well maintained course that plays well if technical is your game. I found it to be a quiet peaceful place to play. Part of the course is played on the college golf course and is great. The rest is played in the woods.
I found getting around here not very difficult. The flow is natural and the paths are easy to recognize.
The baskets are in great shape and the ground around them is well maintained.
There is plenty of elevation usage here. You will throw up hill, downhill, and across the ravine to the other side.
My favorite was 8. It is a downhill throw through an opening and then a hard dogleg left.
The personality of this course really appealed to me. It is quiet and serene. With a aura of solitude.
Some of the baskets had so many trees between it and the basket that any reasonable chance at a decent drive is very minimal. Many blind shots which is hard on first timers. Directions for some of the tees was lacking.
There are no bathroom facilities available.
When you get here the the directions to the parking lot can be a little confusing. But it is on a parking lot behind a building. If you make the wrong turn and go up the hill you went to far. Use this link and go to the arrow. That is the parking lot. http://maps.google.com/maps?q...6968&z=18
The first tee is right around the hedges.
It needs someone to do a map. 1 through were findable. 11,12, and 13 are a bit of a pain.
Other Thoughts: That said, this is my favorite course in Southwest Virginia. I will play it again. I played early in the morning and could not have had a better time or cardiovascular workout.

a hidden gem
Pros: Rubber mat tees
13 of 18 in woods, technical course
Easy to follow course
Innova baskets with visibility in the woods
Cons: No overall map, could get off track once or twice
Tees could be wider and longer
little bit of a walk from 9-10 and 15-16
Fairways could use definition in the woods
hole two the tree in front of the tee could be cut to allow an easier shot.
Other Thoughts: I played 11 course in 3 days in south west VA and this was my favorite. Starts and ends on a par 3 ball golf course, then heads in the woods for most of the round with a good mix of the occasional open shot. Uses the elevations greatly although the fairways could use some more definition. Great mix of distance and technical. a solid par 3 course. 16 and 17's maps a little deceiving just follow the path you you a fine. Beautiful course. Open fairways keeped amazing. a highly over looked course worth the drive if your close enough, i'm sad i'm a little to far.
