Providence Golf Club in Richmond has a rich and unique history. The original location along the Pocoshock Creek closed in 1985 but the property and an adjacent parcel of land were then bought by a new development company. The additional land was used for six new holes while the original property now has longer and more spacious holes. The golf course then had another redesign in 2002 that was overseen by Virginia native Lester George, who is known for designing the highest ranked golf course in the state, Kinloch Golf Club. Providence G.C. wanders through a beautiful landscape of towering trees and wetlands. George utilized these natural features to create a number of risk-reward opportunities throughout the course. The golf course finishes with a risk-reward hole that is heavily guarded by both bunkers and a creek.

Conditions

The greens are in terrible shape with thousands of old unrepaired ball marks among the encroachment of crabgrass and bare spots. They had been aerated and sanded recently and are horribly bumpy. I used to play here almost weekly a few years ago but since the greens are so bad now it’ll be a few years before I go back.

Slow play

The course lost two major bridges in recent flooding. Only nine specific holes were available to play twice. I wish I would have known this before making a tee time. Lots of very slow players that wouldn’t allow any to play through. Left after skipping on hole and saw the next tee box had two foursomes waiting with another in the fairway and one in the green after 2 hour “front nine”. I will play again - only day off in a while and wasted it.

Full price - 1/2 the course

Great layour and course was in good shape. Greens are beat up due to unrepaired ball marks. Pace was 4 hours.
As with other comments, paid full price only to find out 9 holes were open up. Golf Now should indicate these issues prior to booking tee times.
It's a great course and fun to play. Hopefully issues will be rectified quickly.

Golf Now should offer refunds

As soon as I booked, I then tried to cancel...GolfNow and the individual courses were not at all helpful regarding all three days that I booked and needed to move or cancel due to one of 3 for all days of playing came down with Covid. Lost a total of about $350 for the 3 days and can’t even get GolfNow on the phone.

Half of course closed. Staff snotty.

Half of course is closed. When I asked the staff that would have been nice to see on the Golf Now website, he said "It's in the COURSE INFO section" which it isn't. They are a few recent reviews by golfers stating the closure. Even the remaining holes were average at best. We paid almost $50/player. We got hosed....... The staff gave no direction on how to navigate the closed holes. I hoping GolfNow will give me a credit or something.

Bad

The course only has 9 open holes. 1-2, 14-18, 10-11 AND they are charging the same rate to play. Course is in so/so shape to begin with but would certainly not recommend it especially at the price.

Horrible

The course conditions were horrible. I paid top dollar for an 18 hole course where only 9 holes were open. We could only play holes 1,2,14-18,10, & 11. We left after 7 holes because even the holes that were open were saturated. Bridges were washed out, this course should have been closed due to the heavy rains in the area. Horrible experience and ripoff.

Amazing course conditions

Fairways, Greens were both is a amazing shape!

Marshall was not really there. Five some ahead of Us, pace was pretty slow. Multiple tee offs and things of that nature, held us up for most of the round.

Other than that, this round/course was great!

Let’s just police fives ones that are slowing pace...
