Westlake Golf & Country Club, is a Semi-Private, 18 hole golf course located in Hardy, Virginia.
Westlake golf course first opened for play in 1989. The medium lemgth par-72 course was designed by Russell F. Breedon and refreshed more recently by Richard Mandell.
Westlake carries the trademark touch of Russell Breeden, a mix of distance and accuracy is required here. The course isn’t too long to play, but it’s still challenging for players of all levels.
The first hole eases you into the 6,511-yard course without too much difficulty, but things soon get a little tougher with tight holes cut out of the woods and a green that sits by one of Smith Mountain Lake’s many peaceful coves and beautiful inlets.
By the time you reach No. 8, you’re prepared for a challenge. After a blind tee shot, the hole quickly doglegs and then falls off to a thin green backed by a swiftly running creek.
The remainder of the course presents beautiful and challenging combinations of downhill tee shots and double doglegs, plus an irresistible opportunity or two for heavy hitters to open up.
Blue tees: 6,559 yards, course rating 71.7, slope rating 128.
White tees: 5,878 yards, course rating 68.7, slope rating 120.
Gold tees: 5,169 yards, course rating 65.5, slope rating 113.
Red tees: 4,582 yards, course rating 65.6, slope rating 114.
