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!

a williamsburg classic

all ratings save pace of play would be 5 stars if it wasnt december. nice to have a 65 degree day, but the great twilight rate and the weather stacked it up a bit. however, starters and marshals enforced the pace so it was a long but still enjoyable round! would recommend

Classic course with new greens and bunkers.

This course has some of the best par 3's you Will find anywhere. The greens were running about 11 and in great shape. Hope to get another chance to play when grass is not dormant.
