Played this course two years ago - during my 2nd season as a golfer. My ego got bruised up pretty bad! If you struggle to find the fairway, this course will leave some marks on your soul. Returned September this year, and was pleasantly surprised. The greens fees are at the top of my tolerance, which is why I don't... More

The Gauntlet has been the first golf course that I visit in USA. My husband used to tell me good memories about golfing from his childhood, and after many years of memories, I thought he would love to be surprised by an evening at a beautiful golf course. I dreamt of it being a very special time... I searched, found... More

First time playing this course. Greens were in great shape. Great holes/challenges. Will definitely play again. Worth the drive from DC.

This is a public course in the Stafford County park - Curtis Park. I have played here several times and have never been disappointed. On most occasions, the play is on pace, but can get a bit slow on busy days...similar to most public courses. There are nice "features" that make for tight play on some holes. The course is... More

Tight but beautiful course is somewhat unforgiving in places. Greens were in great shape. Staff was helpful and courteous.

The Gauntlet is a nice club....tough course but in good condition. The staff are friendly and helpful. Kudos to Brian in the pro shop, made me feel very welcomed, and Denise, who was running the beer cart. She was really pleasant and friendly and came around several times, unlike some places where you might see a drink cart once per... More

I loved the layout of the golf course, but the round took almost 6 hours to complete because the course was overbooked. The course was in good shape. Book your tee time on GolfNow because it is much cheaper than booking through the pro shop. Bring bug spray because the yellow flies are brutal.

I've played here since it opened in 95. The course is in superior condition. Plush fairways, greens roll true. A lot of work has been one on the couse and it shows. A must play in the region.
