I called on 7/4 trying to get out as a single. They said come out on but no guarantees. I arrived and checked in, the staff took me out and introduced me to starter and gave me a free token for range will I waited. I realize it was going to be busy and was not getting my hopes up. But I was out in less than 40 minutes. Front nine is way easier than the hilly back 9. I was paired with 2 members who could not have been nicer. I understand Davis Love group is coming in to totally remodel the course in the fall. I will definitely try it if I end up back in Charlottesville .

He would play this course again.

Very nice course in good condition. Second time I've been able to score a "Hot Deal" with golf now. Both times I did not finish and left early due to the pace of play. Very disappointing! I will not play here again on a weekend, which again is disappointing because I travel from two hours north when I visit my family in Charlottesville. I understand why I was able to get the "Hot Deals".

They picked the wrong piece of property on which to build a golf course, or the architect wasn’t very creative. The course is in good shape and the greens were reasonably fast and consistent. But the layout of the course and the massive elevation changes on many holes made it less than enjoyable.

The staff was very helpful and friendly, but my playing partner and I wouldn’t play the course again.

Birdwood Golf Course continues to provide the best public golf experience in Charlottesville with exceptional conditions, a great layout, and superb staff.

The day I played there had been a ton of recent rainfall and the course was (I think) cart-path only. Even still, there were only a few truly soggy spots on a couple fairways but overall the course drains very well; the bunkers were in great shape too.

The winter had left its mark a little bit as it has on any Virginia course that uses Bermuda grass and there were a few spots on the course that were under repair. That along with one oddly neglected tee box on hole #8 were the only blemishes on an otherwise stellar conditioning with smooth, freshly cut fairways, perfectly groomed greens and bunkers, and lush rough.

As I’ve mentioned before, the layout here is very good and demands your focus from start to finish. Golfers who enjoy a challenge and strategy won’t soon get bored playing here.

A big shout-out as well to the staff who made our wet round very accomodated. Extra dry towels, free range balls, they were extremely helpful and friendly and made a big difference to me and my buddy who hadn’t played there in a while.

If you are ever in Charlottesville for a visit, don’t pass up the chance to play here, it’s a great course, just ask any of the locals.
