Best Lakeside Course I’ve Ever Played
Water’s Edge CC features a unique, lakeside layout and fantastic conditions to make it worth your drive. If you are fortunate enough to be a member or to be invited by one, you’ll appreciate this hidden gem in SWVA.
With a peninsula-green par-3 and several great views of Smith Mountain Lake, this course delivers in terms of scenery and setting. The diverse layout is challenging enough to make it worth playing again and again without being too frustrating. As a private course it benefits from excellent playing conditions and unrivaled pace-of-play.
There are a few holes that run together but overall the layout here is excellent and takes advantage of its proximity to the lake. Greens are pretty receptive and not difficult to read but skill is required to get up and down here. You’ll use every club in your bag as well and several different clubs of the tee.
This was just my second experience at a private course and I really enjoyed it. It’s a long drive from home but I’ll definitely be back again!
