AWESOME Course Layot - Green Need ALOT of Work

This was my first time playing the course. I LOVED the course layout and the beauty of the golf holes. There are some really spectacular looking golf holes. However, the greens were terrible. Almost every single green had LOTS of bare dirt where the greens had been burned up by the sun. Several greens were being repaired (old, dead grass being removed and new sod being laid down).

The driving range is mats only which is kind of a bummer. The practice area is very nice with lots or areas to practice.

The course is really nice and VERY well maintained, all except the greens. The staff is super friendly and happy to have you there playing golf. If the greens were in half way, decent condition I would give the course five stars. However greens didn’t roll well due to being burned up and lots of bare dirt. I just think for the price, I expected more.

I would love to play the course again when the greens are in better condition. However, several of the holes are beautiful and specticular (#16 and #18).

Definately play the course. You will not regret it.

Great Course

Had a great time at this course. Great layout. Greens have been aerated but not bad. In a few weeks they will be great. Staff was very helpful and friendly. A must course to play.

Don’t Miss this Golf Experience

This course is challenging with amazing vistas and surprising elevations. Well worth the Golf Now greens fees. If in Williamsburg for a golf vacation, this is a must-play course.

Nice course but over priced

Course is really nice and well maintained. However greens while looking great didn’t roll out as you would think. The collars on some of the greens were had several bare spots. Just think for the price I expected more. Would play the course again, but not for the price on a daily basis.

Good Course

The course was in good shape except for around the green fringes where they had issues and planted sod around the green fringes which caused chips to hit and run. Some greens were thin and in need of repair. Went as a foursome but they put 2 twosomes behind use and then the marshal stated to let them thru. They should have teamed the twosomes up so it would not pressure our play which was not pleasing.

Excellent course from tee to green.

Overall course in very good condition. Greens recently aerated but rolled fine. Tee boxes and fairways in great shape for winter weather. Bunkers challenging with white sand. Took 4.5 hours for 18 holes. Will be back!
