Raspberry Falls Golf & Hunt Club is a public access course in the metropolitan Washington D.C. area. It was built in 1996 and designed by Gary Player, who called the site "perfect for a golf course." The land is very scenic and natural, and the namesake falls run down along the 18th tee box.
Near Charlottesville, Va., Keswick Golf Club has unveiled a brand new golf course: Full Cry, designed by Pete Dye and open to guests of the luxurious Keswick Hall.
Honey Bee Golf Club has thrived as a modestly priced, well conditioned municipal golf course in the Virginia Beach area. Rees Jones, the famed "Open Doctor" who is known for his severe treatments of U.S. Open courses such as Torrey Pines and Bethpage Black, built Honey Bee, and his influence is especially evident in the course's elaborate bunker complexes. What's more, the course is one of the Tidewater area's best bargains.
Cahoon Plantation Golf Club in Chesapeake, Va. remains among the top golf courses in the Tidewater area
On the south side of I-64 in the Hampton Roads area of Virginia, Cahoon Plantation Golf Club has brought upscale golf to an area that previously had none. It ranks among the top plays in the Tidewater area, and is certainly one of the most unique. With extensive mounding and intricate bunkering, faux elevation change, plateaued greens, Scottish accents, and fine bentgrass conditions rarely found this far south, Cahoon Plantation G.C. makes a rare impression in an area full of low-lying courses.
Finding a golf course in the rapidly growing Hampton Roads area with no surrounding homes isn't easy. But Stumpy Lake Golf Course in Virginia Beach fits the description, and then some. Situated on a lake in a wooded, swampy wildlife preserve, Stumpy Lake is a secluded oasis amid the bustle of Virginia Beach. Opened in 1953, this Robert Trent Jones design is the oldest of the municipal courses under the umbrella of Hampton Roads Golf.
To say Lambert's Point Golf Club is in an odd location is an understatement. Not only does the course share property with Old Dominion University, it is built on a landfill which juts into the Elizabeth River. Its neighbor to the south is the largest coal exporting operation in the nation. Needless to say, Lambert's Point is a one-of-a-kind experience. Playing to 2,789-yards, the course might sound suited only for beginners or curiosity-seekers. But its practice facilities are extensive, its fairways and greens are finely conditioned, and its views are dramatic.
