Slope 142
Rating 75.2

Situated between Richmond and Williamsburg, the Club at Viniterra sprawls across abundantly wooded hills. There is no shortage of elevation changes on this Rees Jones and Greg Muirhead-designed golf course. There is a difference of as much as 70 feet from the tee to the green on most of the holes. When combined with the mature trees, the result is a tough layout that demands accuracy. Thankfully though, there are not many water hazards to contend with but there is strategically placed bunkering throughout. The golf course also provides a scenic round with working vineyards running alongside the lush fairways. In addition to being challenging, the Club at Viniterra prides itself on their environmentally sensitive practices. The golf course saves as much as 80 percent of the water used on traditional courses thanks to the use of a drought-resistant grass hybrid.

Great Challenge

Had a blast playing from the Green Tee Decks. Plays at 6700 yards but an awesome challenge. Course management is key to this track...leave your ego in the bag and enjoy every shot. The greens were in great fair and the Fairways wide...a must play course and with 7ntee decks to choose from, looking forward to playing again

Totally decent

Overall, good conditions, good layout and good value. Tees are set either very long or very short. Greens are firm but hold well struck shots with good speed. Not a lot of water or hazards but the greens were all raised and challenging.

Best Weather of the year for golf

The course was in very good shape for our team building best ball outing. The fairways were in good shape although it was a little wet in areas and the 90 degree and cart path only was in affect for some of the holes. The bunkers were wet and had to use relief on some due to standing water and some mud in the centers of them. All in all it was a great day to play and we had a blast. This was our third time out here and it gets better every time we play. New Club house is open and brand new. The carts seem a little under powered for the terrain of the coarse but they made it through.

A challenging, fun test

Despite being bombarded with ridiculous amounts of rain recently, the course is in very good shape everywhere except the bunkers.
Viniterra is a fun track to play and a good test for any skill level if you choose the correct tee box. Each hole is unique and visually stunning. The fairways are wide (with the exception of number 4, which needs to be redesigned, imo), and the greens are large.
The staff are friendly and the pace of play was excellent. I look forward to going back soon

Awesome

If you looking for a track that will take your breath away ... it’s the Golf Club at Vinitera! The huge separation from the green to the next hole resulted in almost every hole bering played in privacy! The ride on the golf cart between holes thru the various ravines was also stunning!
Although not in pristine condition (since it’s early spring) with rain & fertilizer being required, it was nevertheless very playable.
In two weeks the official newly constructed club house will open & the off course amenities will improve dramatically.

Viniterra has a really nice collection of holes

The Club at Viniterra is a perfect example of why you should "make sure you play the right tees." If you’re a plus handicap and a long hitter, then go ahead and play the back tees. At 7,500 yards, it's all the golf course you want and then some. But then again, how much fun would that be for anyone? So for most players, unless you're in some kind of high-level event against flat-bellies, avoiding the back tees is probably a good idea. I would suspect it's a lot of work from there, even for the best players.

Fortunately, there are six sets of tees at Viniterra, so there really is a golf course for everyone. When you're playing the white tees you pass up three other sets before you get to yours. But you quickly get used to that, even if you're a single digit player, and realize that this Rees Jones gem is plenty challenging, scenic and interesting, even from 6,100 yards with a rating of 69.8 and slope of 129.

Many of the tees at Viniterra are elevated, and the fairways are very generous. The key to scoring is to avoid the fairway bunkers (there are plenty of them) and find the large greens, which have plenty of undulation. That's easier said than done, of course, since the greens are well protected as well by large bunkers, but it's a good goal nonetheless.

As for the holes, there's great variety, and they’re memorable. There are no homes that come into play either. The only drawback to the course is the distance between holes, which certainly prolongs the round. There is more than a half-mile of bridges between holes for cart paths.

Viniterra is also getting a new clubhouse, which should improve the overall experience. When I played the course, the clubhouse was almost completed and scheduled to open in a couple of weeks.

You need to hit all your clubs and think your way around the course. Greens were quick and had to be in the right spot. Would play this one again

Unique Course in a Good Way

Overall course was in great shape for end of April. Fairways and greens are wonderful. The "unique" part for me was all the hills. Some holes it does not enter into play, others it is significant. Lots of woods between holes, that do not enter into play. Little water hazard concerns, some "gulch" hazards, MANY traps to stay away from. I agree with previous review, do not think about walking. Clubhouse hopefully is in transition from temporary to new wonderful building. Friendly staff and good sandwiches at turn. Enjoy!

Great Course, staff seemed a little rusty, I was with a threesome and we tee’d off, next thing you know they are bringing a stranger to join us! We had no clue a 4th person was being added. Overall decent experience.
