I have not played at South Riding for years and was shocked at how bad the course condition is. Almost every tee box is mostly dirt with a few sprouts of crabgrass and half of the greens have large areas with no grass and bumps and holes everywhere. I don't know what happened but it is in worse condition than any course I have ever seen. I paid $46 because it was a special deal so I feel OK about it but if I had paid the normal $80 I would have been very angry. On the bright side, the people there were very, very nice and pace of play was good.

Big fan of this course overall. Drawbacks: tee boxes were chewed up and greens weren’t in the best of shape. Other than that, I loved the layout, the grass driving range, and helpfulness of the staff. Not sure if I’d pay peak rate for a round here in today’s conditions, but would definitely play twilight/off peak. Will be back!

Very challenging course. In good shape after all the rain. Greens were tricky due to aeration

SRGC location is pretty good, 20 minutes from Dulles Airport & Fairfax and less than 45 minutes from DC. The course is slightly elevated (not flat) which makes more fun and challenging for everybody. If we play from the White & Blue Tees, the course is not terribly long. This course is easy to play for the beginner as well as decent golfers if they try to play more safe & smart than being aggressive. However if players are too aggressive from the tee box or for their approach shots, the course will penalize you. Beginner players like this course because course doesn’t have many out of bound areas (out of play) that means some of us can be aggressive sometimes when we need it.

Bar & Grill is pretty good – they have plenty of drinks & food selections. Apparel selection in the pro-shop is good now with plenty of new and seasonal items. The Club got all new carts couple of years ago – which has plenty of cup holders to other compartments along with the outlet to charge our phones which is sometimes convenient.

It has been raining like a monsoon season in 2018. When we have this kind of rain - on the one hand it makes course nice and all green. But on the other hand, sometimes because of continues rain & wet condition, it makes somewhat difficult to cut the grass and to maintain the course. But it seems the club has new & big tractor and I see them working hard mowing the grass whenever I am at the course. The club finished all sand traps with new sands. It may take a little while to settle, but they are already looking pretty good. For improvement, there are handful of small areas in the course that the club may need to look at it – but I believe they are already looking and planning to fix them. As we all know, we can see this kind of small maintenance work in most courses.

Putting greens are pretty good and driving range is not that bad. The pavilion and large scoreboard area in front right side of the clubhouse in sunset looks just beautiful. But there is nothing better in terms of the view – from the back porch right corner where we can see Hole # 1, 9, and 18 – Just Magnificent!!! Overall the course is looking better.

Just wanted to say thanks to Jon, Chad, Clare, Chris and Peter for Everything they do!

The Price is Right, and I highly recommend this course to everyone!

Note: I am a member at SRGC, I run & organize Friday Night League (FNL) here, and we live here in South Riding so obviously it is convenient for me. I wrote this not because I am a member, but this is how I feel about the course and the staff members.
