Featured Golf Course Review:
Hillendale Country Club -- Excellent Private Golf Club
Review by: Rachel Ashwell I've played this course many times - it is beautiful and very well maintained. The narrow, tree-lined fairways with small (and usually quick) greens make it particularly challenging. The course plays very long for women - so be prepared to use a lot of fairway woods. The par-3 holes range from 145-180 yards (which are pretty long compared to most courses). The club is currently installing a new state-of-the-art practice facility to include a new 9,000 sf putting green, a new 300+ yard driving range, and a 4-acre short game practice area - to be completed sometime in early July '04. So if you play after June, be sure to get there early to take advantage. If you get a chance to have lunch or dinner in the clubhouse - do so. The food is excellent and the dining facilities are comfortable with great views of the 1st & 9th holes. I highly suggest playing here if given the opportunity.

South Course -- Designer
Review by: Broke 90 from the tips ... can you? One of the nicest features of all three courses is that there are no homes or unsightly buildings along the fairways. When playing the South Course, you feel like your in your on a private golf course. The scenery is second to none. If your're lucky, you will get a chance to see Air Force One land or take off. Its hangar is located several hundred yards off the golf course so even if you don't see it fly, you'll still get a chance to view it from a distance. Bring plenty of balls becuase water and or enviromental hazards come into play on more than half the holes. The best part of the deal is that the green fee is good for all day. You can play all 54 holes for one green fee. I found their website in a google search at www.aafbgc.com for more information on their fees. Our fee was $35 for all day and the cart was only $20 for two people. You must renew the cart fee for replay but that's it. The greens are medium fast and the pace of play was totally up to us. We played midweek and our slowest round was 3.5 hours. The only drawback is that the public can't make tee times. Just show up at the Virginia gate along Alexander-Ferry Road and show the guard a valid driver's license. That's all it takes to get on the base. You can bring as many people on as you like but they go on a standby list. We had 10 people show up and had very little wait at all.
