Played with y 17 year old daughter and another twosome on a Tues. Hot deal for $25. So a fantastic deal. This is a great course. A challenging layout in great shape. Greens rolled true and the fairways were beautifully manicured. Of course, a few rough spots on the greens that could be helped if people repaired their ballmarks but we played late in the day so not unexpected (unfortunately). Had water on every 3rd hole but no cart girl or any way to get a snack at the turn. Not a hugh deal but had I known, would have planned better.

Over all the course is good shape minus the greens. This lies mostly in people not repairing their ball marks. Sadly I also got stuck behind pretty terrible golfers without an ounce of etiquette, so I had to skip a hole to beat the sunset and an additional 30+ minutes. Over all $28 on golf now is unbeatable for this caliber course.

I played the Blackheath course for the second time, and it's a beautiful course! The starter was amazing and let me start on the back 9 since I was a single so I wouldn't have to wait. The course was not in the greatest of shape as we just had a week of 100 degree days without rain, but that is not the fault of the course, just the weather. My only big issue is the golf carts, on this trip and my one roughly a month ago, the carts are in lousy condition. They don't accelerate well and half the time you have to press down quite a few time to get them to move at all. But besides that, it's a beautiful course and great fun to play

Course was in horrible shape! Dried up fairways and greens. Better bring a hammer to get you tee in the ground. No ball washer til you get to the 14th hole. Played the next day at Colonial Heritage only a few miles away from Ford's colony and the course was beautiful. I would suggest don't waste your money at Ford's colony and play Colonial Heritage

We played 6 courses on GolfNow.com while on vaction in Williamsburg and this was far and away the best kept. The greens were in great shape. You can really tell they take great care all the way around. We played Blackheath the last day. It was a great way to finish since I shot my lowest round ever and my playing partner went under par and was only 1 off his career low.
