A challenging course, Cannon Ridge Golf Club is also a four-hour history lesson. This Deane Beman/Bobby Weed-designed, 7,100-yard par 71 not only provides plenty of interesting golf holes but several metal placards throughout the course that tell stories of battles and maneuvers that occurred during the Battle of Fredericksburg here in 1862.
You can still see cannons on the ridge at Cannon Ridge Golf Club, but now the battles are a little safer as golfers try to defeat this layout. Opened in 2003, it is a 7,100-yard par 71. Today's battles are waged with drivers and putters on L-93 bentgrass, which covers the greens, tee boxes and fairways, and tall fescue and Kentucky bluegrass in the roughs.
