"Review based on playing blue tees to long pins. I've played 65ish courses across the country and this is in my bottom 5. Teepads and baskets are dangerously close together, a bit too luck based, especially in the last 3rd of many "fairways.""
Feb 26, 2023
"Course is fine if you are close by. Not worth traveling for. Very flat with little variety between the holes.
Was very muddy the day I visited. Seems like that is the norm after any precipitation."
Feb 12, 2023
"Very nice, fairly open wooded course. Lot of options for choice of difficulty with various layouts. The course does not dry out well. A week removed from the last rain and puddles and very muddy spots are still out there. Still would recommend for any level of play."
Nov 26, 2022
"Fun wooded lines with no real OB. It is nice to have so many options for tee and pin positions. Though, as a first timer it was a bit confusing, added with the undefined fairways and the semi open, compact layout. "
Mar 13, 2023
"One of my absolute favorite courses! The tournament layout is a blast.
To be fair, it can be a bit confusing on the first half of the course, especially if you’ve not played it before, and it can get really muddy on some holes when it rains (worse in winter since it doesn’t have much chance to dry out) but when the weather conditions are good it’s fantastic. Highly recommend it!"

"A difficult wooded course. The layout is not great. The holes over lap each other, tee pads are hard to find on some holes, and it feels like 18 holes were put in when there’s only room for 9 holes."
Oct 8, 2022
"Fun and tight"
Oct 7, 2022
"Great course with a raised canopy to play around the trees. "
Oct 1, 2022
"Could use a little more upkeep, but this course is a great technical course with some tough holes. Very woody."
Sep 18, 2022
"Nice, flat course with a good bit of trees to try and find some fun lines through."
Sep 4, 2022
"Well kept. Just don’t throw after rain."
Aug 23, 2022
"Excellent wooded course with tough lines to hit but there are lines available "
Aug 15, 2022
"Longer holes than Burke- woods golf"
Jul 23, 2022
"Great short lil course, a little cramped but great for working on golf shots"
Jun 3, 2022
"Consistently a bad course, nothing good to say about it. Swamp, bugs, bad layout"
May 28, 2022
"Course was very swampy with mosquitoes"
May 18, 2022
"Great course. It's swampy, but will clear up during the summer."
May 17, 2022
"Fun little course! Nice to have multiple tees and baskets so any skill level can play. Only downside was it was pretty muddy and swampy in parts."
May 16, 2022
"Good course but built in a swamp"
May 13, 2022
"It’s a swamp but cool short technical holes. Played with just a mid and putter. "
May 1, 2022
"Yeah yeah, a bit muddy, but very nice. Well laid out, decent variance, no issues. Very flat, no sections to crank it, but still very fun"
Nov 21, 2022
"The course was AWESOMELY laid out but it was also the MUDDIEST PLACE IVE EVER BEEN. "
Feb 17, 2023
"Nice variation of layouts but too muddy sometimes "
Mar 4, 2022
Feb 26, 2023
"Wooded course. Tight straight fairway lines. Muddy for a while after rains "
Dec 30, 2021
"I love the fact that there are so many options to customize the course. Holes were nicely marked and small arrows in each basket direct toward the next hole which was helpful. Nice and open so not too much fear of losing a disc for newbies like us. Will definitely return!"
Dec 19, 2021
"Great course, watch out for the cursed gnome"
Nov 9, 2021
"Although wooded the trees are pretty wide apart and well maintained"
Oct 27, 2021
"Would do well to have some branches trimmed, and finding hole 6 is confusing, but otherwise highly enjoyable. Very varied with six total layouts (3 tees and 2 baskets every hole) and an enjoyable park. "
Jan 11, 2022
"A fun park layout with a very casual vibe and additional tees/baskets for variety. Wooded, but all lines are fair and visible. A handful of honest RHFH holes. No great challenges make for a very good place to bring kids, newbies and friends. Tees and some baskets are pretty worn-in and beat-up. I’d avoid this place after a rain - some sections look like they get very muddy and hold standing water "
Sep 5, 2021
"A bit tight for so many baskets, but definitely had enough challenge on the longs for me. "
Aug 30, 2021
" Very nice!"
Aug 15, 2021
"Fun course but like previous comments suggest, it definitely lacks variety. Every shot has mild to moderate trees. No open or heavily wooded holes. One hole has an interesting dogleg but that’s about it!"
Aug 11, 2021
"Great course with various different layouts that offer plenty of difficulty for any skill level. Some of the teepads need a little TLC and the addition of a couple trashcans would be nice, but overall worth it!"
Jul 24, 2021
"Course is really well kept but not a lot of variety in the holes"
May 31, 2021
"Holes 9 & 10 can be pretty muddy after rain storms"
May 22, 2021
"Nice and dry, no mud or standing water."
Apr 30, 2021
"Great for beginners and practicing with technical shots"
Apr 27, 2021
"Decent layout. Wet course."
Apr 4, 2021
"Course it self is good with most holes providing different shot angles, but the mud can get really bad on this course due to poor drainage."
Apr 3, 2021
"A literal swamp"
Mar 26, 2021
"The course is great. Decently marked, clean lines. The drainage on the other hand? Terrible. Not sure what they could do about it without spending a bunch of money. If the drainage was good I would give it 5 stars. If it’s rained at all within three days of you going wear boots, bring bug repellent. "
Mar 14, 2021
"So, just to be fair I drove a little less than an hour to play this course for the first time. After no rain for over a week the course was still pretty muddy. Not to mention eight dollars to get in to the park and then two dollars to play a round... Cannon Ridge is free and an amazing course. Probably will not play this course again without a major course redesign! "
Mar 11, 2021
"Some pretty muddy spots "
Mar 6, 2021
"So muddy "
Feb 25, 2021
"Very wet conditions, especially close to the baskets. "
Feb 15, 2021
"Very wet, wear water proof shoes "
Feb 15, 2021
"Very very wet "
Jan 30, 2021
"Nice course. Pretty tight and a lot of right hooking shots, so bring appropriate discs. Has some muddy areas, but honestly a lot drier than most of the courses in the area that are considered "muddy." No warmup area that I could see."
Dec 31, 2020
"Pretty wet still - back 9 more so than front."

"Needs water work"
Dec 23, 2020
"This isn’t a bad course, but it’s not a great course. Feels a bit crowded, you can often see multiple baskets from your tee pad so it’s easy to get confused where you’re throwing if you don’t know the course well. Some baskets don’t have hole numbers on them which adds to the confusion. I’ll only come back when it’s dry, most fairways are very wet and marshy."
Jan 2, 2023
"We’ll maintained for the area it’s in. Course is not as swampy as it use to be. In the past you could not play within a week after a big rain storm. You can now play a round a day or 2 after rain and just avoid a few muddy spots. Great course that teaches you how to play in the woods"
Nov 28, 2020
"Good short course with a variety of tees and baskets."
Nov 16, 2020
"Slight muddy, recommend wearing shoes that you don’t mind getting wet or muddy"
Nov 8, 2020
"This is a beginners course. Do not play to the blue pins as some holes do not have a blue target. The course is tight and many fairways are unsafe for full power shots because of the proximity to other fairways and players. It is difficult to navigate due to poor signage. This course is worth playing with children or new players but if you are an intermediate or advanced player visiting this area, you should probably look for another local course."
Feb 8, 2023
"Fun course. A little muddy in spots but no major puddles today. "
Sep 1, 2020
"Gets very wet, but overall a really nice course through the trees"
Aug 20, 2020
"Nice quick course. I’d recommend wearing boots for the mud but overall a great course. "
Aug 19, 2020
"Nice short course with some obstacles. Good practice for some straight shots and in a very nice family park. "
Aug 14, 2020
"Smaller but fun course with multiple tee/basket choices"
Jul 18, 2020
"Great course. Kind of short and a fair amount of trees. Great design and layout!"
Feb 19, 2023
"Edit: I judged this course too early. This course RULES! Just muddy when it rains. Good boots work just fine though. "
Jul 2, 2020
"Great straightforward course! I was a little worried about the mud I read about in other reviews but it was actually very dry when we went, with only a few small muddy patches scattered about that didn’t interrupt play at all. Almost all baskets are straight shots and visible from tees. Nicely shaded but not overly brushy. Highly recommended. "
Jun 6, 2020
"Great course. Played White to white for a first time, bu any combination of Blue or white tees and either basket would make for a good round. Kudos to the Bull Run Bullies for the upkeep!"
May 25, 2020
"Course looking great! Upkeep already happening just a little sloppy in some places from recent rain"
Mar 25, 2020
"I really enjoyed this course. On my first but not last visit.
The signage has a clear view of the hole distances which seemed accurate enough.
The teepads(red, white, and blue) were all easily findable and along the courses “flow”, I was happy with the ones I used and saw.
There are multiple baskets on each hole, I totally dig it. Used and 100% FUNctional.
A good challenge of shots all along the course with a punishment for missing lines here and there. "
Jul 6, 2021
"Confusing for the first couple of rounds. Tons of variety for the given space. Some of the signs don't match the holes. Looks like some of the teepads/baskets have been moved and the signed were not updated. Holes 9 through 11 were very wet and muddy while I was there. If I lived in the area it would be worth paying for a pass. "
Jan 27, 2020
"It's located in a very low-lying area. Way too much mud after rain/snow,etc. Not kind to newer players, as the red tees are in disrepair and could lead to injury. I'll come back in warmer months, when (hopefully) the turf is drier. The design is nice, but upkeep is lacking. If you're more advanced (and have good water resistant shoes), you'll have a blast, for sure. 2.5 stars from me."
Dec 28, 2019
"The tee boxes are very nice. Multiple holes locations. The course has lots of trees and is challenging but a great for both beginners and advanced alike. "
Nov 11, 2019
"Wooded, condensed course with lots of different options for different skill levels. My dad and I did pretty well going from the closest box (red) to the closest basket (white). "
Sep 24, 2019
"Some direction to next hole signage would be great but other than that it was good"
Sep 18, 2019
"Hard to navigate, but perfect course otherwise"
Jul 15, 2019
"They did alot of fantastic work today on the course fixing teeboxes and cleaning up all overhang and old trees.
All the guys were also very helpful on navigating the course and also providing tips on how to better your game.
I'm a huge fan of Giles Run but after the great experience today I will definitely be back alot more."
Mar 21, 2020
"Bull Run Bullies keep and maintain this course.
Currently finishing the Blue Tee boxes for all 18 holes.
Great wooded course! Hit those lines, but NOT the trees..."
Jun 30, 2019
"Half of the blue teepads are worse than the ground. Course does have narrow fairways to hit, but a couple of the tee placements were at severe angles that took birdie out of the question without throwing a roller."
Jun 24, 2019
"Wooded course, but fairways are open enough to put it through without luck. Tee's were pretty rough. Pretty cool course with 2 baskets and 2 tee options. Can get really swampy. No elevation change. Signage was good. But overall it was just 'meh'"
Mar 30, 2019
"Really enjoyed the dry holes, but the mud took a lot of the fun away."
Dec 27, 2018
"Muddy and swampy"
Dec 27, 2018
"A small and compact course but it’s a swamp. If it wasn’t a swamp, it would be a fun course. "
Dec 6, 2018
"This course continues to improve as the locals do excellent and comprehensive work on it. The biggest problem at this point is drainage, and there doesn't appear to be an easy solution for that. "
Oct 19, 2018
"Great conditions right now."
Oct 3, 2018
"Prone to mud and bugs. Fun course with multiple tees and baskets. Tight and short course. Mostly short tunnel shots. Very short tee pads, a few have poor footing. "
Oct 6, 2020
"I originally had this at a low score but over the course of several years the team that has been working at getting the course at a really playable level deserves praise. The course isn't hard to navigate anymore, the pads have been significantly updated, trees have been removed to add a level of ease to the course. Great job guys."
