Sandy Bottom is fantastic Deez. I see you working. On a serious note I always enjoyed lakeview of all the courses. Packsaddle is a nice option though.

RE: Golf near JMU
Whenever people ask if I play golf, I just tell them I've shot a hole-in-one at Sandy Bottom...

I havent played there since I was young. I hear they are charging to play now at Sandy Bottom, albeit ~$3 however such a shame my buddies and i used to bring 2-3 clubs and enjoy 9 before being otherwise upstanding citizens the rest of the day. Good Stuff.

I almost sank a HIO on hole 5 - the toughest hole - on the morning of my wedding day. Stopped about a foot short. Of course then I think i 3-putted that damn hill.

@Knit - still no charge at SB.

Agreed on Packsaddle - beautiful course but extremely challenging. If you're not a particularly strong player you won't enjoy the day. I've played twice for alumni events playing captain's choice and that was the only saving grace!

I've played Lakeview once and enjoyed it, definitely not as challenging as the mountain golf at Packsaddle.

Sandy Bottom was always fun!

There is a charge...at least there's supposed to be according to their site. $4 M-Th and $5 on Fri - Sun. Still not bad for a little short game practice on an actual "course".

Just have them make the 1-hour drive to Blue Ridge Shadows in Front Royal and they can thank you later.

(disclosure: Blue Ridge Shadows did not sponsor this post, regardless of whether or not my business card shows that I operate the course)

With that being said, I would recommend Lakeview as the top option "near JMU".

Bowling Green is also a solid place up there as well.
