Ballyhack Golf Club Course Review
The Ballyhack is located in Roanoke Virginia and it's a private golf club, available for members and their guests only. Ballyhack was designed by Lester George and it features what it's usually called a Scottish Highland type of design, being opened for players just a few years ago, back in 2009. However, if you know your golf courses, you'll definitely notice that Ballyhack is not even remotely similar with what you'd expect to see in Scotland. Anyway, the place is at least memorable and hugely likable, as Lester George knew how to build a golf course that will leave you with a strong impression, a love at first sight kind of a deal, if you know what I mean. The Ballyhack golf course spreads over 190 acres in a nothing short of dramatic scenery, where the land raises and falls beautifully, featuring spectacular elevation changes that will make you enjoy the purest game of golf you've ever experienced.
There are quite a few blow-out bunkers, aimed at emphasizing the rugged and somewhat wild landscape. Also, the Ballyhack golf course is built on a gigantic scale, looking very, how should I put it, natural, but with a slight touch of human hand on its huge greens. Just to get an idea, the 18th hole is a gigantic 20,000 square feet. There's a flip-side to that coin, I mean the Ballyhack golf course is not the easiest walk you've ever experienced, being pretty strenuous even for the fittest golfer. However, the experience and the scenery are unforgettable and if you're a traditionalist/old school golfer, you'll get over the small unpleasantnesses, as you'll be playing on Virginia's most exciting piece of real estate. Bottom line, the Ballyhack golf course is a once in a life time experience, a must-try in this life, as it will leave you with an unforgettable impression. To describe it in a few words, the Ballyhack is the more you play it, the more you like it kind of a golf course.
