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 and challenging

Viniterra golf course is a wonderful layout with many tee box options. For those with a low handicap it’s a daunting experience to those with a high handicap it’s a fun course!

Great staff with a new clubhouse that offers great breakfast sandwiches to delicious sandwiches at the turn. Once round is over relax on the back porch and see a few holes.

Never been disappointed no matter the season!

Enjoy a great course close to Williamsburg without the “Williamsburg price”!

Wet from rain, cart path only

2nd time playing here, it's a great track! Knocked off a couple stars because it was so wet. This is not a walkable course (distance from green to tee) and is not very "cart path only" friendly. These attributes are also one of the reasons this course is so beautiful.

Greens are n excellent shape and were recently aerated!

Staff was super friendly and accommodating, allowed me to start on the back because the 1st Tee was backed up - it was about 745 AM.

Challenging and in great shape

Lots of rain lately, fairways pretty wet but a dry patch was always close. Plenty of grass kn the fairways and greens are n great shape. Well hit balls are almost always rewarded! Staff was super nice and accommodating.

First Time Playing

Open Fairways, Rolling Hills, and Aerated Greens

Tee boxes were in great shape on every hole, and level (not a given on every course), giving a consistent tee height which was nice. Fairways opened up nicely after a couple of 200 plus yard carries and narrow openings. The undulation of the fairways make a bowl on many holes that can course correct slightly errant tee shots or approaches. Lots of bunkers that are well tended and penalize overly aggressive play encouraging play to the heart of the green as the best bet. The greens...they look great from afar but have recently been aerated which made for very unreliable roll on putts and release on chips. Highly recommended to mark you ball and clean it before attempting any putt to remove the gritty sand for a fighting chance at jarring one. That was the only blight on an otherwise stellar experience. Will play there again soon, tremendous value for the money.

Very very slower players.

They need a marshal to control to players.
Some players run funny music very loudly.
Some of them played too close to front player.

very nice course

vinaterra is a very nice course. it's not the most difficult course i've played - but it's not easy at all. it will test your skill level.
it's a lot of up and down and playing across open hazards. one could lose a lot of balls if you can't play straight from a to b.
the greens are very nice. they had been recently aerated so they were choppy today ( 11/10/19 ) - but normally - the greens are very very nice. normally they are very fast and break hard.
they have a very nice club house, driving range , chipping green - with bunker - and separate putting green.
nice place.
i'll be back.

nice

It is hard to say anything negative about this course except that I don't like the layout! The conditions were perfect today but again, it is hard to recommend a course that you just don't like that much.

Great course , friendly staff

First time playing this course. Conditions were excellent! The pro was super helpful and made us feel at home. He took the time to show us where everything was even with a shop full of people. After our round the other staff member was friendly as well as he helped us with merchandise. Great value for the price. We will be back.

NO GOLF, LOST $120 & HAD TO DEAL WITH THE RUDEST PERSON I'VE EVER MET.

I purchased tee times for two through the club's website. Little did I know that the weather would be horrible on the day we were to play the course. So bad that the fairways and greens were flooded. Bad enough that the final round of the PGA Champions Tour event down the road was postponed to Monday. When we arrived at the course we were told under no circumstance would we get a rain check. Jeff (the general manager) was incredibly rude. His claim that I purchased the round from "Golf Now" was news to me since I purchased it through Viniterra's website. End result...NO GOLF, LOST $120 & HAD TO DEAL WITH THE RUDEST PERSON I'VE EVER MET.

As it was explained to you the day before on the phone and when you arrived that this was a "hot Deal" offered through GolfNow. The policy of the "hot deal" is that they are not refundable nor can we issue a raincheck. I explained that if you were to call GolfNow they might refund you because they do sometimes refund on certain circumstances. Apparently, you took my advise and called them because you were issued a refund. Again, Thank you for your post.

Good twilight rate

Course is about 20 minutes from Richmond airport, got in one afternoon and decided to try and get in 18. Paid $38 for a twilight rate, and have no complaints. Played this course about 6 years ago when they first opened so didn't remember much. Thought the course was in great shape for this time of year, greens were soft and rolled true. No two holes border each other, so you need to keep it in the short grass. If I lived in the area, I would play here again. Late PM I didn't expect a beverage cart, but was able to buy drinks snacks from the bar before starting.

Nice course to play

The Club at Viniterra was in great shape. The weather was perfect and had a great time. The pace of play was slow due to a twosome a few groups ahead. The course is loaded with bunkers which slows play too, but still had a great time and look forward to returning.

Ridiculous!!!

This today was the longest it has taken me to play a round of golf in over 3 years! 5 hours and 20 minutes is ridiculous!! It wasn't even fun, because of the wait with no one to help. We never saw a marshall!

Thank you for your review. I do apologize about the pace. We had one group that held the course up and that is where my marshal spent his time trying to get them to pick up pace. By the time they finally fell back into position the damage was done. Again, we are usually better with pace on weekends. Again, thank you for your review.

Great Course to Play

Played in a foursome where we play around the area. The course was in great shape which considering the drought in the area, was quite remarkable.

The staff was friendly and the clubhouse was a big improvement from what they had in the past.

Would highly recommend this course.
