Detailed description of Reston National Golf Course

Reston National Golf Course is a Public , 18 hole golf course located in Reston , Virginia

Reston National Golf Course first opened for play in 1969

Reston National golf course first opened for play in 1970. The golf course was designed by Edmund B. Ault.

Reston National golf course is a classically designed golf course The course is lined with mature trees on gently rolling landscape. Reston's greens are small and soft enough to hold your shots. The greens are heavily bunkered. The rolling fairways are tree lined, and water comes into play on four holes.

Reston National's par 5s will not beat up the medium length driver as none of the three play longer than 530 yards.

Some long par 4s give the course its teeth, like the 440-yard 13th, which doglegs left and uphill to an elevated green. On the front side, the 408-yard ninth is the course's most severe dogleg par 4, where a slice off the tee lands you in jail on the approach. Another dogleg, the par-4 seventh, is actually the best risk-reward driving hole on the course. Here, a partially blind pond on the left side guards a fairway that wraps around it. You can take off as much yardage on this 408 yarder as you dare, resulting in anything from a sand wedge to a mid iron into the green, depending on how much you can chew off.

The collection of par 3s are especially good. The eighth might be the most difficult, while the 16th is the longest, heading downhill over 200 yards, and a pond on the right swallows up weak slices that can get hung up in the wind.

Reston National Golf Course plays to 6,878 yards from the back tees for a course rating of 73.7 and a slope rating of 136. The course par is 71.

A very scenic course. Houses around it, but few interfere with the course. Wide fairways and big greens. Different tees to fit your game.

Would travel: 20-30 Miles, Not Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: I would play again, Better than average course for the area, Fair priced based on quality and competitive area pricing

I play a fair number of courses in the area. And this one is right in the middle of the pack. A little on the expensive side, but, that's the D.C. area for you.

Would travel: 30-60 Miles, Not Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: I would play again

A good layout in the Virginia suburbs. Surrounded by houses, but they're not too close. Fairly wide fairways and large greens. the fairways had been aerated when I played.

Would travel: 10-20 Miles, Not Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: I would play again, Better than average course for the area, Bargain priced based on quality and competitive area pricing

Nice course for a relaxed day. Not terribly challenging, and forgiving on many holes in that you can be inaccurate and not get seriously penalized. Not overly long.

Played this course last Sunday morning.

Paid $27 with card but this was for 9 holes (back nine), not 18 holes.

This is a nice course, but not a great course. one of the highlights were the greens, they were in great condition. Adding to the morning round was the fox (real four legged fox) we saw on the last par-3.

Played with my friends while visiting the Washington area. Had a great time, looking forward to seeing my friends again and playing an 18-hole round. Might see a two legged fox next time.
