Great Course - Just need to lower the Bermuda Rough

Williamsburg National is one of my favorite places to play and I love the 2 courses. One thing they could do to speed up play is lowering the Bermuda rough. Ball can be very hard to find, even close to the fairways and greens. Understand having issues finding the ball with errant shots, but on several holes our foursome had issues finding balls that barely missed the greens or fairways. Other than that, keep doing what your doing.

Perfect Round!

My wife and I played for the first time at this course. Very hot 96 degrees, no wind, but perfect conditions. Course VERY well kept! Our congrats to staff. Greens, fairways, tee boxes, and sand traps were all in excellent shape. Don't know how they keep it all in that condition. Greens roll true and fair. Nice scenery, great pace of play. We enjoyed it all, and at a fair price. At Pro Shop - restroom conditions excellent. We've eaten @ their restaurant 3 times for lunch in July, 2020 - EACH time the service and food were excellent. Highly recommend this location!.

Super Nice Course

Had a fantastic time playing the Yorktown today. The staff was great, pace of play was awesome (3 of us played in about 3 hours 15 minutes). Conditions were super nice! Will certainly come back again, next time we will try and play both courses!

A Must Play Course For Anyone

This is a fantastic course and I would recommend it to everyone. It was our first time playing here and we could not have been happier. They spayed disinfectant then power washed the carts before each round which was awesome. Fairways and greens are in excellent condition, not one dead or dormant spot on the course. *** Before teeing off on #14 drive or walk to the green so you fully understand what you are hitting into. Trust me. Great hole if you know iinadvance about the drop off.

February Golf

Fortunately this winter has been pretty kind to us in the northeast region ( Philadelphia area ) for golfing, my wife and I took a ride to Williamsburg Va for the Presidents day weekend. She is an elementary school teacher and had a 4 day weekend. We stayed at Kingsmill and had a nice stay as usual. I was going to just book the plantation course but decided to add another Williamsburg course to my resume'( Plantation , River , Golden Horseshoe, Colonial Heritage and Kiskiack > one of my all time faves.
I'm glad I played Yorktown at Williamsburg National, The course was very fair as well as very good condition. The greens where fast. It was cart path only due to all the rain that's been happening here witch is no problem Id' rather do that than the treadmill any day. I did not score well, not that the course was hard but like I'm rusty. My playing companions where local guys who gave me a few tips as we played. The kind of guys you hope to get when you call in as a single. My only thing is there are no yardage books, I believe these are a necessity for a " traveling ' golfer. I don't want to hear about download it on the phone,,, I want a book.
I think the fee for the day was fair as well. I did not stay for food but the bar area was full and sounded pretty lively. If you plan a stay and have time to play in Williamsburg put Williamsburg National on your list.
Chris,
Thank you for a nice time and some great sports conversation, you need to get up here for an Eagles tailgate !

Love this course

I really enjoy the Yorktown course. I like it more than the Jamestown course but both are fun. The only thing I don't like on this course is the ridiculous green on the par 3 on the back 9 (I think it's #14). It's kind of stupid. But the rest of the course is good enough that it makes up for it. All in all I think this is one of the most underrated courses in the area. Definitely worth the money compared to some of the other options around here.
