About Ballyhack Golf Club

Ballyhack Golf Club is a Private 18-hole golf course located in Roanoke, Virginia. It's a 10-minute drive to downtown Roanoke and 15 minutes to Roanoke Regional Airport.

Ballyhack Golf Club opened for play in 2009. The course was designed by Lester George.

The facility, was built at a reported cost of $15 million. It is situated on a 370-acre tract previously known as the Saul Family Farm. With a design reminiscent of the Scottish highlands, the 190-acre course boasts 50-to-70-foot elevation changes and old-style, gouged-out, roughed-edged bunkers. Two holes will share a green. The putting surfaces will average 8,000 square feet, allowing golfers to play a variety of different approach shots. It's got kind of a little highland wetland on the front nine, and the back nine has got some stream channels and rock outcroppings. The course has wide fairways, plenty of elevation changes and great views of the Blue Ridge Mountains. The mountain range is called ‘windy gap, and wind is a factor in playing the course adding to the links course feel.

The club model calls for only 60 local and 200 national members. Plans call for the construction of 15 four-bedroom cottages that will house members and their guests. Fully refundable membership deposits run from $40,000 to $130,000, with annual dues from $2,500 to $10,000. All of those numbers vary depending on a member's location and status.

Although Private, the course is currently (2011) open to public play if you stay in one of the cottages on the property. It is likely to saty this way until the membership is more fuly subscribed.
