"You'll be taken back by how unique the layout is but its not even real golf."
"...was in great condition, the staff was friendly, and the clubhouse was nice."

Great staff, great courses and for those interested in trying out an obscure sport named "footgolf", bring a comfy pair of shoes. And yes footgolf is exactly what it sounds like.

The course is hard, but I played my best golf there. The course is hard because it's very narrow, if you can't hit the ball straight you are going to have a very hard time. This course will challenge you from the first hole to the last. I would never walk this course due to the course layout. The cart path needs to be worked on, besides that I loved it. If you want to be challenged, play this course.

Played here in may 2015,, Had fun with it, lots of elevation changes. Greens were a little unfair with some of the hole placements. I'm working here from Indiana, My only recommendation is to play with someone who has played here before, oh and keep the ball below the hole.

While I agree with most of the reviews that this is a hard course I really don't think it's so difficult you need to avoid it. Anyone that felt it was so hard they would never come back might need to find a nice putt-putt somewhere are stay there. The fairways are a pretty narrow and usually just have woods on either side so this course can be a ball eater if you're not careful. The greens are also undulated and play pretty quickly. But come on this is golf get over it. The course itself was in great condition, the staff was friendly, and the clubhouse was nice. All I can really say is if you don't enjoy a challenge I'm surprised you'd be playing this sport at all.

The course is very challenging. Started off with 4 pars then... we hit a dog leg left... perfect tee shot, pitch on the green and.... 12 put. That's is right, some of these greens are so slanted, the have no choice other than to put the hole on the side of the hill. My first put missed the hole 2 inches right and 12 inches by, stopped, then proceeded to roll back past where I was (15 feet). They need to have that green and several others redesigned to be better suited for golf. There are also several tee boxes that need major work as they are merely compacted sand. Additionally, they need to invest in better maintenance equipment as the green mower cuts uneven and digs in in certain places...although this may be due to the severity of slope on such greens noticed. Oh, and the cart paths are in need of almost a complete renovation. The reason I give it 2 stars and not one....the price. ... paid $25 for 18 riding. Come on Virginia, sell the course to me and I will get it back to its full glory.

This course is a fun, unique challenge if you are a mid 80s golfer or better. If you can't hit straight, stock shots with regularity, you are unlikely to have a good time. If you aren't confident in placing your shots, a round here can quickly devolve into a mountaineering expedition through thorn-filled rocky gorges. I avoided this course for a couple years based on the reviews I have read here, and after playing here, it is clear the majority of the reviews were written by the people who spent most of their round digging through ravines for errant shots. If you are a 10 handicap or better, this course is a fun track. I wouldn't suggest bringing your hacker buddies with you, because you may end up clocking a 5-6 hour round. Tee boxes and fairways are in good shape, but greens are a bit marked up, but very receptive. They roll quite slow so you should swing the putter harder than you might assume just by looking at them. Also, I chose to walk this course, and it was pretty brutal. Long walks between holes and very hilly. Get a cart. If I learned anything from this General's Ridge, it is to not make assumptions based on people's negative internet reviews. Just go out there and make your own assessments.

The course is beautiful, make no doubt about that, but it is impossible to play. You'll be taken back by how unique the layout is but its not even real golf. To start off no lie, is a good lie. If your lucky/talented enough to land on the 10% of fairway that inhabits every hole you will be shooting at a pin you cant see till your 80 yards away, problem is you are on your second shot of a 540 yard hole. Have fun with all that. Not to mention every fairway you land is a 40 degree angle. Imagine a lush green course... on the side of a K2. Once again if you have lots of beer and a bunch of friends it could be fun to see how badly everyone does. But if you want to keep your sanity/balls/pride I would look to play elsewhere.

$80 layout, $20 conditions. If you average those out, you arrive at about the $49 green fee (including cart). I played the front nine, and found the layout to be unique, mostly in a good way. Unfortunately, the tee boxes and fairways were a bit worn, and the greens all seemed to putt at different speeds (in addition to being loaded with ball marks), which was quite frustrating. Also, the greens don't break nearly as hard as the practice green. This course is a hell of a challenge, no doubt. I hit driver only twice in 9 holes, which is a testament to how punishing wayward shots are here. That said, I shot my normal score, so the course is not ridiculously hard. Other than conditions, my chief complaint would be that seemingly good shots can still lead to lost balls due to some of the undulations, combined with the shots being blind. I would consider playing here again, but probably not until the ground has healed from the long summer.
