Tricky

The course, for the most part, was very straight-forward, but the day we played it was very windy (20-25 mph and gusty) so it was a very difficult day. Our only complaint, and I'm sure you hear it a lot, is the 14th hole, a par 3 from 150 yards that should be replaced with a par 3 that is a fair hole. The green is very deep and at the back of the green there is a slope that drops 5 or 6 feet to the back edge at the water. If you go over that slope with any speed you will probably be in the water. Playing into a 25 mph wind made this hole ridiculous. I would play the course again but not in windy conditions.

Really enjoyed the Back 9 layout

I’m a local, so it’s a course like to play, and the food at the grill is really good. The Yorktown course opened yesterday after being closed for summer maintenance. It was not 100% just yet, but fairways were in amazing shape. It was the first time I ever got to play the back 9 on this particular course, and glad I did. I really enjoyed the layouts , and I look forward to playing it again.

Great layout!

The Yorktown course is a great layout. No two holes are alike. It’s fair but challenging. The greens were in very good shape and rolled pretty true. We played on Fathers Day and the course was pretty crowded but we still finished in about 4 hours. Great experience and one of the best values I’ve ever had on a golf course. Under $40 for an afternoon round. I’ll be back again and again!

Great Experience

Perfect conditions with excellent greens running fast and true. Fairways were in great shape with grass well maintained and basically no divots.

Must Play

Course was in excellent shape. If you are in the area, Williamsburg National is a place to need to play. They have 2 courses, Jamestown and Yorktown. You won’t be disappointed.

Not a bad course

The course was in good shape. Challenging fairways to hit for the most part. Greens were inconsistent and slow but overall a great day on the course.

Great parkland layout

Played several courses in the area, during a 10 day stay. The two courses here were on the top of my list to repeat in the future. Picking the right set of tees is essential to scoring well here. Played both the tips one day and from the whites another, when paired with another twosome. The tips will challenge your driver, and you will need it a lot. The fairways are fairly wide, but not excessively. Marginal tee shots will get you in the rough but a missed tee ball usually results in a lost ball. The hole layouts were interesting and varied. There were many memorable holes. The par threes are a good challenge form the tips, and good yardages for high handicaps, from the forward tees. I hit a variety of shots and clubs on the holes, so it never gets mundane. The Bermuda rough can hide the balls, in places where it is a little thicker, so keep your eye on where it lands! But it is not so deep that you cannot recover, with a well struck shot. The greens were very smooth and consistent from green to green. Only a couple had minor bad spots, but the pin positions easily avoided them. . You need to think your way around this course to score well. A little pricer than some other courses in the area, but not excessively, and what I would consider reasonable, for the caliber of the course.

Great Golf

It was a great day for golf. The course was in great condition. Greens were in great condition. They were free from any ball marks and this was the middle of the day. Course employees were extremely helpful. Only thing missing was a beverage cart, but we made do with the coolers on thee course.

On and off the course club is great

Being 13!and having a 9.3 handicap from the white or blues I am all about great greens and conditions. I have played at national all of my life and have continued to enjoy the course and all of its staff. Playing as frequently as I do I have gotten close with all staff they are all friendly and nice to all. The food is great and when done with a round it is always nice to be waited on by great staff and great food cooked by their outstanding chefs. A few years ago the course went a little south. But in the past couple of years Jay Long the superintendent has done a great job and his excellent maintenance crew is outstanding. Chris Hartig owns the company who manages national he is a great guy. Chris hired JR Powell as the GM. JR has hired outstanding staff. Chris Dillow who is the clubs head golf pro has done so much to bring back the club and get more golf out on the course. He has organized programs for members and always walks around with a smile. National is definitely a place be a member or play. The club has great members and normally play as a group on the weekends and if you like to bet play with that group. They are always welcome to new people joining. The rye grass on the Yorktown is great. With it all green it is beautiful. The greens aren’t as good on Yorktown as they are on the Jamestown but they still roll smooth. Jamestown has made a comeback and now is in its prime just like the club. Now is a great time to join, play, or eat.
