Very Much Enjoyed My Guest Experience

I played at The Dominion Club as part of a multi-day golf outing earlier this month. This is my third private course in the Richmond area that I’ve been fortunate enough to have been invited and I enjoyed myself very much.

As with many private clubs, the biggest difference is the quality of the staff and facilities and that pace of play is never really an issue.

To that end I found all of these things true about this course, with excellent practice facilities (be warned there’s no designated place to park your cart by the driving range on the other side of the parking lot) and fancy clubhouse and exceptionally professional staff.

The course itself isn’t as dynamic as Willow Oaks or The Foundry but it nonetheless has a good variety of holes and you’ll use every club in your bag. I didn’t find the course overly difficult and I imagine playing here a lot could boost your confidence in your game.

The conditions were very good though again not quite as pristine as the other private courses I’ve played nearby. I did enjoy the bentgrass fairways and greens and while I didn’t notice any real bare spots or signs of sloppy maintenance, the conditions didn’t quite “pop” either. From what I hear this course has come a long way from in the past few years so perhaps remaining room for improvement will be taken on soon.

It was an honor to play here and if I ever get invited back I will gladly accept.

Starting to regain it''s form

About a couple years ago, this course was an absolute mess. The greens were like sandtraps and the fairway was dried out. Ever since TDC got a new superintendent, the course is starting to regain its championship form from several years ago. Now, the greens are in really good condition. They run at a moderate pace, but hold shots beautifully. The fairways are nice and I feel like players get a little extra roll off of them.
The layout is pretty standard with a few doglegs, and several water holes. A few of the notable holes are 4, 9, 11, 15, and 18.
The fourth is a long par five (560 yards) that requires three good swings. The hole is somewhat narrow and has a tree that blocks off almost any attempts towards the greens. The large green complex is guarded by two of the deepest bunkers on the course. Anything long over the green is flirting with heavy rough.
The ninth is a picturesque par three that plays over the Wyndham Lake. The 9th and 18th greens are combined, which makes the green complex odd and somewhat difficult to hit.
The eleventh is a short par three played over water. Nothing crazy special about the hole, but it is very birdie-able, as most players will be hitting a short iron.
The fifteenth is a great risk/reward par five. It is very short (probably about 280-300 yards) and is played over water. It is gettable for a long hitter, in fact, my playing partner knocked it on the fringe. The hole requires around a 250-260 yard carry to clear the water. The hole is a dogleg right and if one decides not to go for it they have to lay up and avoid the several fairway bunkers that block the fairway.
The eighteenth is an ideal finishing hole. It is a reachable par five (530 yards) and it winds around the Wyndham Lake, fully exposing it again. Players must carry the lake on their second shot, whether they are laying up or going for the green. Like I said earlier, the 18th and 9th greens are combined which creates an extremely large and odd shaped putting surface.
The practice facilities at TDC are very good. They have a putting green, two chipping greens (one next to the putting green, and one next to the driving range), and a driving range that is big enough to accommodate all players.
Highly recommend trying Dominion if you get the chance. It is located near Short Pump Town Center and it is in a nice neighborhood.
