7/8/2009Bull Run is back! Well, sort of back. Given the massive rains of the spring it could be said that you would have to TRY to make a course look bad this year. At Bull Run they appear to be trying to do the opposite as positive changes in the poor conditions of two years ago are very noticeable. Despite the fine weather, we saw few other golfers during our delightful day on the course. It could be that the owners have not become aware of promotions to make golf more affordable, promotions that seem to be filling their competitors courses. Overall, we enjoyed a spectacular day of low humidity for our small (15) group outing at this once very popular course. Ayce
8/13/2008Oh, how the mighty have fallen! I had stayed away from this course for nearly 3 years since new ownership and management had begun to make their much talked about “mark” on one of my favorite courses. The course lived up, or perhaps DOWN, to the lamentations of other golfers. Their email blast sent out a $29 special (only to resend it for $39 the next day) so I took advantage of the fire sale rates to see the damage for myself. The front doors were locked at 10am, maybe because of the hornets nested above the door or the yet emptied trash can next to the main door. My cart had a flat tire so I switched it for one with a broken windshield, best available. The food service area was closed at 10am and when it opened later they overcharged my cart partner by a dollar for a drink. Walking through the ill stocked pro shop to the main foyer it was as though time had stood still. The plaques on the walls trumpeted achievements from three years ago or more. No signs of life or advertising existed since then! I could go on but briefly: dry weedy fairways, bug infested greens, horrible tee boxes (many under repair), incorrect pin sheets, no sand in traps, trees taken down inappropriately, got the picture? It looked like it would if I had won the course in a lottery and without knowledge and resources for proper maintenance had allowed nature to reclaim the course. Give it 2 years at this rate and it will be unplayable. [From the editor: we hope Bull Run can get back on the right track, it used to be one of our favorite courses.] Ayce
4/2/2006Damn it was early. Sure it was just 6:00am when the alarm went off - but that means it was really 5:00am (silly time change). My biggest concern was if the sun would actually rise. Alas, we arrived at Bull Run and hit the range (balls included - you have to like that). Tee boxes, fairways and greens were in decent shape - which is good news considering the disease that hit the course last year. The greens were aerated about two weeks ago - but still played a bit slow and bumpy. I managed to card an 80 despite a wild day with the driver. Thank goodness for the forgiveness of Bull Run (and three birdies). G-Ball
11/28/2005On the rare sixty plus degree day after the cold Thanksgiving weekend, Bull Run was hoppin’ with golfers. Short daylight meant only the front nine could be navigated, but clearly players have discovered Bull Run’s dramatically improved conditions. It looks more like early April than near December as the grounds crew has worked overtime to restore the course to excellent conditions. Upon commenting on the improvements, I was told by management to look for further enhancements this spring, but was sworn to secrecy on them. The club house has been painted and new score cards were out amidst a 50% off sale in the pro shop. I have always like this track a lot and am anxious for the spring at Bull Run. Ayce
10/4/2005This place has to best one of the best around for an outing! Had the good fortune to play two tournaments there in one week, both very well done. Food is always good and hospitality from the staff matches the good grub. Golfers in outings this year all receive metal bag tags with their names engraved on them-a nice touch. Followin a September seeding program, the fairways are showing a growth spurt that bodes well for next season. This course still has no houses around it to spoil your golf experience, and cheap gas at the nearby stations is a bonus. Ayce
7/16/2005A foursome that included Bogeyman, Vranko, and me teed off from the blue tees at Bull Run Saturday morning a little after 8:00 am. The day was already warm and extremely humid, only to get worse as our morning went on (but it was better than the 122 degrees in Baghdad that day). The extensive thunderstorm activity that had rolled through the area over the course of the previous few days had rendered conditions very wet with no roll in the fairways and puddles in most bunkers. Still, a good time was had by all, and thank goodness there was plenty of drinking water available on the course. The layout of the course offers something for low handicappers, yet isn't overly difficult for mid-handicappers either. There are a few tee shots that require some forced carries of a couple hundred yards, so high handicappers may find these holes daunting. The fairways and greens were in excellent condition, but as could be expected the greens were rolling a little slow due to the excessive rain. None of us played particularly well, and we all vowed to blame it on the conditions. After the round, we stopped by the clubhouse for lunch. The food was good but service was a little slow, which seemed to be mostly due to a lack of staffing and a large lunch time crowd. If you want to check out Bull Run, sign up for Waggle's Golf & Poker Tourney that will be held there on July 27th. HeadCase
10/8/2004The Wagle.com team trekked out on a beautiful fall day to play and review Bull Run Country Club for you, our golf audience. We were treated to pristine course conditions on a challenging layout. The fairways, greens, sand traps, and tee boxes were all in great shape. The fact that we had an absolutely beautiful 70 degree day made it even better. The course played challenging enough from the Blue tees at 6500 plus yards, but Bogeyman brought his A game on this day and drove the green on the par 4, #8 and sank the putt for an eagle 2! Throw in another 3 birdies and he shoots his career round! You can bet we’ll be back to play Bull Run and you should too. Lefty
7/21/2004For the 5th Annual Waggle.com Summer Madness at Bull Run, sixty-four golfers enjoyed the usual outstanding hospitality of Bull Run. As always the terrific staff was hustling about to make sure everything ran smoothly and everyone felt welcomed. The course was in good shape (especially the fairways), except for a few greens that are currently home to the cicada killer bees (the bees should be gone in a week or two). If you're looking for a place to hold an outing be sure to consider Bull Run. 
11/11/2003At a recent mini-tour event on the Waggle tour, all of us were pleasantly surprised at the outstanding condition of this fine course. The fairways and greens were in terrific shape and despite all the trees nobody was claiming the ‘leaf rule’. I suspect the grounds crew had blown the course as it was in peak condition. All those trees that so beautifully define each hole also break the fall breezes so get out to Bull Run before you put your sticks in the basement. Ayce
4/10/2003A day on the course is better than a day in the office - even when the wind is howling. And howl it did this round! Bull Run is in great shape. The fairways are lush and the greens are rolling true. Today the course was wet - so it was cart path only. But unlike last year, they will let them roll in the fairways this season as soon as they dry up. Get out here and play! Bogeyman
11/4/2002Bull Run is one of the better value new (1999) “high end daily fee” courses in NoVa. At just a half hour from the beltway, it is an easy drive west on I66 then north 4 miles on Rte. 15. This very playable country course is carved out of the woods much like Westfields or Pleasant Valley. Rich Jacobsen of Augustine fame did a great job on layout and the staff keeps it in good shape. It was surprisingly nice in Nov 02. Each hole stands by itself—no interlocking fire here. No houses or roads intrude on the beautiful sights and sounds. Only sounds of distant hunters break the serenity. There is an exceptional practice facility consisting of a real grass tee range (no ‘irons only’ here), a large chipping green with a bunker, and an expansive putting green. One criticism is that the practice green has much more contour than the greens on the course. The par fours are all unique. The pars 3s are best played from the blue tees. Strong par 5s here with the 18th hole being one of the best par 5s in the area. The #1 Hcp hole is the ninth which is a 425 yard par 4 with water down the entire right side. A well stocked clubhouse and adjacent snack bar offer great views of the 18th so you can wager with your partners over drinks “does he make on in two?” (Tip- bet NO) KU
5/9/2001Again Bull Run was the site for Waggle.com May Madness - the 2nd Annual Hak Chul Chung Memorial Golf Tournament. And, again everyone raved about the course and the fantastic job the Bull Run staff did putting on our event. The new clubhouse is now open and provides wonderful amenities for tournaments as well as drinks and a meal after your round. Bull Run is a fairly open course that is made challenging by its variety of hazards and several forced carries. It remains one of our favorite local layouts. Enjoy! Bogeyman
5/9/2000Bull Run was the site for the Waggle.com 1st Annual Hak Chul Chung Memorial Golf Tournament. We had a bright sunny day and the course was in great shape. After the round everyone raved about the wonderful layout and course conditions. But more importantly for us was the great job the Bull Run staff did in putting on our event. From greeting the players and taking their bags as they arrived, to the tent and catering services they paid attention to every detail. If you are looking for a course to host your next event be sure to check out Bull Run. Bogeyman
11/22/1999Bull Run provides one of the most picturesque layouts in the Virginia area. Every hole was challenging yet fair. The fairways are generously wide but protected by many bunkers and lateral water hazards. The greens are fairly large but also protected by many bunkers. My only complaint about the course is the condition of the greens. Most of the greens are in a state of repair necessitated by extremely harsh summer conditions. Many of the greens have patches of new sod covering on quarter of the green. Vranko
