This is a tough course with lots of hills. Course is in great shape with speedy greens that aren't out of control. Rough is penal and challenging especially around the greens. Great variety of holes. Important to play correct tees as it can be a long slog hitting long irons/fairway woods into the par 4's.
Played on Friday afternoon and pace was slow at 4/5 - 5 hrs; not unexpected for a muni that plays this difficult.

They would play this course again.

I have played here many times since it opened and like to walk for exercise. And I get plenty!

The course is of championship quality, though many of the patrons are definitely muni players. I go through several bottles of divot mix each round, and my colleagues and I replace tons of divots, fix plenty of ball marks on the greens and rake plenty of bunkers during a normal round. The carelessness of some players detracts from an otherwise excellent experience.

The key to a good experience here is to play the appropriate tees. Typical hackers should stay with the two forward tees (Red and Gold), and there should be no problem for mid-handicappers to play from the middle (White) tees. This would improve the pace of play quite a bit.

I appreciate the starters and marshals who do their best to ensure an enjoyable experience for the patrons. I know for a fact that marshals will have people move up one or even two sets of tees. This helps everyone.

I hear people complain about the rough. Well, the fairways are wide, and if you miss them you should be penalized!

The greens were running nicely, though a bit soft from the recent rain. On a typical July day, they are quite fast, but with all the rain, they are a bit slower. We adjust.

I read a reviewer complain about the cart girl having them pour out non-LHGC beer. That is a function of the Virginia ABC laws and license. Having patrons bring in their own alcohol puts LHGC at risk of losing its liquor license.

The turkeys are now very active and once in a while I will see foxes, deer, hawks, ospreys and other wildlife.

I wish the county would implement an aggressive goose management program throughout the system. The amount of goose poop on holes #16 and #18 is terrible.

I will play here again, from a tee box that matches my ability.

They would play this course again.

I love Laurel Hill. Its long, tough, and fun. I believe the 2014 Pub Links Championship was played there. The course has my number, but I keep coming back for more. A good round the always makes dinner taste better.

They would play this course again.

Played around 10am after 3 days of rain. Course was in good condition considering the amount of rain. some spots were still wet. cart path only. fastest round ive ever played (3 hours). greens rolled very fast. starter let us get out early in front of a group so that was a nice gesture. love playing here.

They would play this course again.
