This is the most overrated golf course I have ever played. They make you pay a cart fee even if you want to walk, and the course is a walking course. The holes are tight together, none of them stand out, yardages are off, and...More

One of my favorite courses! Staff was helpful but drink machine is broken. Enjoyed the round. Lunch was delicious and the views are stunning.

This is a beautiful course - and we've seen a lot of them. The Pete Dye River Course absolutely counts as one of the prettiest we've ever played. The course is set right next to the New River and the river is within sight at...More

This course is beautiful, but be prepared for its length! The course lies along the New River and is challenging. The restaurant in the clubhouse is very good.

This might be the fairest Pete Dye Course he has built. As the name suggests, the course sits along the New River and the River comes into play on probably 7 of the holes. The fairways are sufficiently wide and, surprisingly, the greens are pretty...More

What do you need to say about a Pete Dye course? Great! The course is located on a peninsula with the beautiful New River flowing along side the whole course. It is located in the New River Valley of the Blue Ridge and Allegheny Mountains....More
