Excellent public course connected to UVA. Five tee boxes ranging from 5,075 yards to 6,920 yards. Tee boxes, fairways and greens were in good condition. Pace of play was under 4 hours. We would play it again if we ever came back to Charlottesville.

This golf course is challenging and fun to play. Many blind shots and the par threes are spectacular. I played it twice.
