Not your Daddy’s Keswick

What a treat! I played here 46 years ago. What a dog track then. Now it is a glorious golf experience. Beautiful open layout with generous fairways, large greens that were rolling about 10-11 but fair in contour. Not greatly fond of the real short par 4’s because it was too risky to hit driver. Oh, free water and $2 for a Gatorade! Not bad for a ritzy joint.
This course beats the other Charlottesville tracks, Birdwood (under renovation), Farmington and Old Trail. Need to stay there or be Member I think.

Pete Dye at his best

This may rank as one of my all-time favorite Pete Dye courses, and it certainly proves that not all Dye courses break you down physically and mentally. I didn't say it was easy, but it is very playable, especially if you tackle the right tees. I played it one day a tee up and the next day from the tips and there was a nine-stroke difference. Regardless, like many Dye courses, the holes get harder as you work your way close to the greens. Approaches and short game are the key because there's plenty of room to drive the ball, so that shouldn''t be an issue. I never played the course that was here prior to Dye's new layout, but I've got to believe this is 100 times better.

I'm used to having a 'good cry' on Pete Dye designs...

The brand new course at Keswick Club, Full Cry by Pete Dye, pays homage to the term of hunting hounds in hot pursuit of a scent. Keswick is not only minutes from Thomas Jefferson's Monticello but also in the neighborhood of a hunt club (during one of my rounds here, there were about 30 hounds out for some morning exercise next in a lot next to the 2nd hole).

It's no doubt a surreal part of Virginia, minutes from Charlottesville, and the setting along with Dye's design makes for a fabulous walk. Only members of Keswick Club, their guests and guests of 48-room Keswick Hall overlooking the course can play here, and a round here is quite the experience.

Dye's design, which sits atop a former Palmer design from the 1990s, is more walkable and, surprisingly enough, less penal for amateur players thanks to fewer forced carries and elevated greens. Bump-and-running is encouraged here and surfaces are firm and fast. Like most Dye courses this is a second shot golf course, thanks to small, well-guarded greens and plenty of sand. The hole variety is exceptional, thanks to a collection of super par 5s plus a trio of short par 4s that are drivable off the tee if you crank a good one. Also, it's more walkable than it used to be, though there are few flat spots on the course thanks to both natural hills and Dye's manmade moguls.

All-in-all, it's a Dye design that in fact will hardly leave you whimpering.
