"Worst Managed Course of All Time"

Consistent 5+ hour rounds. Already backed up 1/2 hour before 9am in the morning. They talk about pace of play, but no enforcement. Group in front all hit their tee shots dead right into tall weeds and they spent 10-15 minutes looking for them while the starter just sat and watched the whole time. Took 1:10 minutes to play 3 holes.

Asked starter how long a round is taking and he said it’s pushing 5 hours and expected to increase.

Save your money and more importantly, your time and play elsewhere. This course has always had a reputation for slow play and it’s getting worse.

Resting National is a solid, if pricey, offering in Northern VA, where there are not a ton of great alternatives. Par 3s are long, almost 200 yds from Black tees (one up from tips). Fairways are not overly wide and rough is deep enough to force course management. biggest issue was in green side bunkers, Not nearly enough sand in many, with poor drainage. Cost was about $25 more than the Montgomery County, MD munis, making Reston not the best value. It was a fun track to play and we had great weather.

My first time experience at Reston National left me with the feeling I was playing a private course..I have played through out the winter and this course is so much further along in terms of preperations than anything I have played in the last two weeks... fairways are lush. First and second cuts are impeccable... greens are almost there.

It doesn’t help that the greens had just been aerated (I feel like they should tell you this on the booking sites), but even off the greens was just terrible. The tee boxes were virtually all dirt with some sprouts coming through, cart path is beat up, fairways and greens are consistently beat up and patchy. Unfortunately it’s a convenient course if you live in Reston which is why I went this day, but I honestly don’t think I will go back. I would have gone elsewhere for the money if I’d know the condition the course was in. It used to be so much better cared for years ago. Hope they turn it around..

We had a 3:24 tee time. When my group showed up there was 6 groups on the first tee box.. We tee off 50 minutes after are tee time. We were only able to play 9 holes due to darkness. I do not think I would play here again if the over book.

Thank you for your feedback. We are sorry to hear about your experience with the delay of your tee time recently.

Great course and usually in good condition, however having a tee time every 8 minutes means waiting for almost every shot due to golfers in front.
