Fort Belvoir Golf Club

  87 Reviews

In pre-reading all of the negative reviews shown on Golfnow I was apprehensive about what the course would be like. I was pleasantly surprised. I golfed with my son-in-law who resides in Alexandria and the courses are somewhat limited. We enjoyed the mixture of both short and long par 4's and 5's as well as a few mid range par 3's. I found the course in very playable condition and the greens were somewhat on the the slow side but that is to be expected with the extreme heat index. Other than that I enjoyed my round of golf and will definitely return when I am visiting again and hopefully soon.

I played this with a buddy today. The tee boxes were a joke, but it’s late August and the value was great to get out and just play. The greens were in fine shape. What is nuts is that Golf Now does jack crap to make sure you understand how long to give security to get on base. Show up at least an hour before your tee time.

First time playing at Fort Belvoir and I expected more from this military course. Being active duty I have played many military courses throughout the country and this ranks in the bottom half for me.

The layout has been chopped up sometime in the last few years I was informed. It now plays to a par 70 and less than 5900 yards from the Gold tees which is now the tips here. Many of the holes are straight with little character. More than a handful of short par 4's with elevated greens to make them a little more challenging.

The course conditions left something to be desired for sure. Tee boxes were thin on grass and rock hard. Fairways were dried out and hard. Most were in good shape as far as not being thin on grass. The rough was thick in some places but nothing extreme. The greens were in good shape for the most part. They are a little slow but that is due to having to let the Bent Grass grow a bit longer due to the heat this time of the year. Now if other golfers would just fix their ball marks on the greens things would be even better. There are a few holes that are under some work which causes some other issues. The highlight of the conditions are the bunkers. The sand is new and it is not thin. I would know as I found myself in my fair share of bunkers throughout the round.

The practice facility is OK. Downhill driving range all off of mats. Two different practice putting greens that are in OK condition. The pro shop is nicely stocked with any thing you may need at the course. They did have a beverage cart out during the round.

The value is poor whether you are paying the civilian rate or the military rate here. There are courses in Virginia that are the same price and much, much nicer in every aspect. I am hesitant to recommend this course right now but there are signs of some money being put into the course so maybe give it some time before you play here.

Basically all of the tee boxes need to be redone, they were so packed down that it was difficult to get a tee to go in. Aside from that it was a fun course, the staff were confused about booking from this site though, make sure you tell them that a cart is included. She charged us for a cart then made us find a manager to show that she shouldn't have charged us for a cart so then we had to go back and refund our cart fees, in all that wasted about 15 minutes of my life.

I was disappointed in the shape of the course. Many holes had weeds everywhere in the fairway and rough. Weeds were also growing in the sand traps. Some tee boxes had little grass or had many bare spots. Also, no chances to get something to eat or drink at the turn. The 10th hole was too far away from the club house.
