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 layout

I’ve played other Rees Jones courses - Duke University and The Golden Horseshoe (gold). Another superb layout. Numerous bunkers that snatch your errant shots, greens that were slow, but in great shape with plenty of undulations. Staff were friendly and accommodating. Pace of play was above average. Thumbs up!!!

Thank you for the nice comments. Just an FYI, we did not perform a core aeration. What was performed was needle tines that simply vent the greens. Needle tines usually do not effect the roll of the ball if done correctly.
Again, Thank you for playing and your review. See you soon.

Nice course. Marshal was rude.

Beautiful Sunday round interrupted by a Marshall in the 13th fairway. He said we were two holes behind and we had to speed up our play.. There wasn’t anyone behind us. I said that we weren’t slowing anyone down and we were on pace to play. a four hour and fifteen minute round. He said he didn’t care and we had to keep up with the foursome in front of us and to pick it up.

I get slow play. We weren’t holding anyone up and no one was pressing us. We all are 10-15 handicaps and are aware of slow play. This marshal needs to have a better rapport with golfers who drive by five other courses that are just a good as Viniterra.

Don't miss this one.

Lots of geographical variety and t- boxes to suit any handicap. Greens well guarded. Tough but not unfair. Always a bailout. Course shape is fantastic... like your own private country club.

Thank you for your comments. As for the grille, we have a wide selection of sandwiches to choose from. Sorry that our Staff couldn't elaborate more on an IPA, but hopefully that didn't deter you from ordering the Alewerks:) See you again soon.

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
