General's Ridge Golf Course

  183 Reviews

Was not thrilled playing this course, but the group I play with wanted to try it out. The conditions were absolutely terrible. There was no grass on many tee boxes/fairways. Bunkers were in terrible shape. Cart paths were falling apart, and was a rather bumpy ride all the way around the course. The layout makes for it to be a really tough course, so I think I would enjoy the course if it wasn't for the awful conditions, but i would never recommend this course. Take your money somewhere else. I would take a guess as to say this course will go under over the next couple years. I played on Saturday morning, and I saw two other groups.

Course is suffering from a tough summer. Tee boxes are a bit of a mess and the fairway is a little thin. Didn't prevent a solid round but I'll be back once its had a chance to recover.

Course is very tight with lots of trees. If you spray you'll pay. Greens are heavily contoured and run true. I got off early so no problems with pace. Staff was very friendly.

General's Ridge bills themselves as the toughest course in Northern VA, and they may be right. The slope from the tips is 143. It's not overall long, but it is very narrow, hilly, and has several blind shots. Not for a player who struggles to hit it straight off the tee! The fairways were OK, greens were great, but the tee boxes and bunkers were not in great shape. After recent rains, the water collected, making cart paths slick and lots of mud balls. #1 handicap hole in VA is here, requiring a tee shot of 190-220, and a 170+ approach that plays 2 clubs longer because it is straight uphill. Worth checking out if you want a challenge and are prepared to lose a few balls.

I would recommend if you play this course to play the upward tees to make it a little less challenging

Very weird course. It only plays about 6200, but the overall topography of the course just makes it not enjoyable. If you miss a fairway by 3 yards you are in the woods. Greens are either 20 yards uphill or downhill on every hole. Just an unfair course to be honest.
