Course Reviews


Supposedly ranked one of the nicest (4th or 5th) golf courses in the state of West Virginia, Locust Hill lives up to its hype, but just barely. This course is definately nice, well maintained, and provides for some challenging holes. Although there weren't many unique holes, there were several with carrys over water or marsh that made the course interesting. Unique...no.....fun..yes. The greens were fair, true, and a bit fast but very manageable. A big drawback is the scenery. This area is located amongst some beautiful mountains and rivers, yet the course is located directly in the middle of a developement. A nice developemnt, but houses surround every hole nonetheless, and you often walk in between or along side houses to get to the next hole. The other setback were the golf snob players. Although the staff itself is friendly the group of member players that play regulary at 2pm on Thursdays were not. Elite jerks, even the staff told me they don't really like them....so don't play on a Thursday afternoon. If your directly ahead of them.....forget it. They will hit into you and make you essentially wait for all of their 5..5somes to pass through. They do have logo balls, a huge plus for the logo ball collector like myself and the value it magnificent for the quality of the course. $21 to walk weekday twilight is absolutely wonderful, barring Thursday. I'd definately recommend coming here except for one day a week. Overall rating..A-

A pleasant course,nice natural layout,with no spectacular holes. The greens ,fairways,and tees were good and play seemed to move along nicely. It is a nice better than average golf course. It did have some deep rough,we spent a lot of time looking for balls in it. The fees are very fair.

I thoroughly enjoyed this course today. It is about 25-30 minutes drive from my home in Leesburg, VA and well worth the trip. The course is well maintained, nice scenery, lots of flowers in bloom, lots of water in play, several cool rock/boulder features, a few elevated tee boxes, greens that are challenging and roll true, friendly staff and very reasonable prices. There are a few homes on a few of the holes, but nothing too intrusive. My regular golf partner is my 9 year old son. We usually play at various courses in Loudoun County, VA where the courses charge full price or give a slightly reduced rate for a 9 year old. At Locust Hill, they do not charge for junior golfers. I wish more courses would follow their example. And, the green fees for adult golfers are very reasonable. The clubhouse is very modest, but if you go to play golf and not hang out in the clubhouse, it doesn't matter. They do have a nice outdoor pavilion right next to the clubhouse. All in all, I highly recommend this course for a pleasant, affordable and challenging round of golf. We will certainly be back to play here again.

This is my favorite local course to play. I feel a little cramped by the houses on some of the holes but once you get back to 15-18, you get to some really fun holes with plenty of water. It's well maintained and a very fair price.

Wasn't real impressed. Not worth the gas if coming from washington dc even for the price.

This is one of the premier courses in the Eastern Panhandle of West Virginia. Nestled in a golf community, it offers great scenery even though homes abound. I've played this course frequently and never grow tired of it.

The amenities are typical of any community golf course. A pro-shop and snack bar with the regular fares.

Difficulty, in my opinion, waxes and wanes on this course. Some holes offer wide open fairways while others are blanketed on each side with trees and hazards. My favorite holes are 8, 15, and 16.

Hole 8 is a par 5 with an elevated tee with a fairway guarded by a large sand trap on the left and a water hazard on the right. Longer hitters can simply hit over both of these rather than try to squeeze between them but it still gives you something to think about. The green slopes away from the center with a steep slope on the backside that will leave you wet if you overshoot the flag.

Hole 15 is my favorite of this course. It's a par 4 slight dog-leg right that has water along it's entire right side. The wide (but not very long) green juts out the right side and is slightly elevated. After your tee shot, your faced with going for the green over the water. Just a great hole.

Hole 16 follows in hole 15's footsteps by immediately asking you to repeat your iron shot from 15 and hit over the water again. It's a par 3 that's sort of an island but has a more generous landing area. Watch out for the turtles should you try to retrieve a wet ball.

Overall this course is great for the value. A great staff and reasonable green fees. You can play for almost nothing if you're willing to walk this very walkable course. I highly recommend this course to anyone looking for a leisurely play in the eastern panhandle.

Had the opportunity to play before 7:00 am...the maintenance crew was out in full force! Really nice course that flows fairly smoothly through a golfing community. If you like houses nearby, this is your course... The course (late May) was in super shape. A few greens seemed impossible to navigate with drastic slopes (#8 for sure). The last seven holes were the prettiest when water comes into play on several of them. In my opinion, it's not the only nice course in the Panhandle, but it's worth a play!

Great Value for the Money

I just played this course yesterday, and it is a great value for the money. We used the coupon for after noon, and for $22.50, you can't get a better deal for 18 holes with a cart. It would be a very difficult course to walk, as many of the greens and tees are far apart. The tees and greens are perfect and the fairways have very tight lies. They could have been a little bit better, but I had an excellent lie every time. The only reason I don't give maintenance a perfect score is the bunkers. I see that they might be bringing in sand to fill them in, but right now they are wet and thin of sand. Fortunately, I didn't find one yesterday. There are 4 sets of tees, which gives all levels of players an equal chance. I am very much looking forward to playing this course again soon. By the way, the people that run this place couldn't have been nicer.

Decent course - worth the trip

This is the only course in the Charles Town area that I would want to ever play again. It's decently maintained, and for comparable standards in the area this is the only golf course worth teeing it up at in the panhandle of WV.
