Penderbrook Golf Club

  176 Reviews

Being as I live in the golf community, I am able to play this course quite often. Recently I have noticed a major lack in care towards the course conditions. There are huge holes in fairways, sprinklers go off while golfers are playing, and the pins are never all in the same positioning for the day. To add onto that, I've noticed some things with the workers that shock me. One guy rides his maintenance cart erratically, cutting across fairways while golfers are in play. I believe this man is head of maintenance for penderbrook. And for the first time ever, I had a very nasty experience with the man in the pro shop who gave myself and the golfers I was with attitude when asking about rain checks. Overall, if you end up having to pay the full $50 to play here, I would suggest saving your money or spending $10-$20 more on a nicer course.

He would not play this course again.

Penderbrook Golf Course opened their course for Thanksgiving and made it a Shotgun style at 10:00am. The weather was forecasted to be in the mid-40's making it for a chilly Thanksgiving golf round. When I arrived, at 9:30am there were roughly 30 other golfers (mostly Korean) waiting to tee off at 10:00am. Around 9:45am, the starter stated that there would be a frost delay and that we would be teeing off at 10:30am. That was understandable since the morning was in the high 30 degrees. When it was 10:30am, the starter claimed again there was still frost and the tee time would be pushed out to 11:00am. When I saw holes #1 and #7, there were clearly no frost showing and stated that fact to the starter. The starter said that there were still areas under the shade that had frost. When it was 11:00am, the starter again pushed the tee time to 11:15am and said anyone who wants a refund can get one and leave. At this point, half the people had Thanksgiving plans and decided to leave. By the time it was 11:15am, the starter said he no longer knew what time we would tee off and told us he would keep us informed (which he never did). By noon, the starter declared that no golf could be played ruining the Thanksgiving golf for the remaining people who waited over 2 hours and not play a single hole. I’ve spoken to 2 of my buddies who golfed on the SAME day on different courses in Virginia and said that they had no problems playing. This debacle by Penderbrook’s management ruined all of our Thanksgiving golf plans and could have avoided this by just canceling the shotgun golf since they knew the weather would be cold. This golf course has gone through so many different managements and I will NEVER play at this course ever again. DO NOT PLAY ON THIS COURSE!!!

He would not play this course again.

I had a terrible experience in Penderbrook today. When we (4) finished the fifth hole, it began to rain. We tried to keep playing but could not, because it was pouring and cold rain. We asked raincheck, but were rejected. The manager said they cannot give any rain checks when the weather forecast said it would rain but we came. Never experienced in other courses. Penderbrook's rain check policy is the worst. Felt like we were robbed.
