Lynwood Golf & Country Club is a Private, 18 hole golf course located in Martinsville, Virginia.
Lynwood Golf & Country Club first opened for play in 1947. The course was designed by George W. Cobb and later renovated by Gene Hamm.
This hilly course has enough variety to challenge the most experienced golfer. The greens and tee boxes are elevated, and there are sand bunkers or water hazards coming into play on every hole.
Par for the course is 71. From the back tees, the course plays to 6000 yards. From the forward tees, the course measures 5053 yards. The longest hole on the course is # 1, a par-5 that plays to 518 yards. The shortest hole on the course is # 2, a par-3 that plays to 172 yards from the back tees.
Watch out for # 3, a 425-yard par-4 challenge and the #1 handicap hole on the course. The easiest hole is # 17, a 214 yard par-3.
The course closed December 31, 2011, after 64 years of operation. The club’s members voted Dec. 6 to cease operations, the vote coming after representatives of Henry County and the Martinsville-Henry County Economic Development Corp. asked them to give up their lease so DuPont might sell the property to an interested party.
