Detailed description of Mattaponi Springs Golf Club

Mattaponi Springs Golf Club is an 18-hole public golf course located in Ruther Glen, Virginia.

The golf course at Mattaponi Springs Golf Club first opened for play in 2004. The course was designed by Bob Lohmann and Mike Benkusky.

The golf course at Mattaponi Springs Golf Club has five sets of tees from professional at over 6900 yards to recreational at just under 4900 yards. The 18 undulating greens will vary from just under 5000 square feet to well over 8000.

Mattaponi Springs course winds through a 330+ acre landscape, crossing the streams at strategic locations and bringing the streams, creeks, many wetlands, other preserved areas and distant colorful hillsides into view. Numerous natural hazards, including extensive natural water hazards, and changes in elevation have all been incorporated into the design. A large 5+ acre lake on the eastern plateau provides an aesthetically pleasing lateral water hazard for several back nine holes.

The course sits over gently rolling hillsides through forests of mature beech, oak, holly and pine trees. Beeches and large oaks line the perimeter of many fairways. In spring, flowers on the numerous wild azaleas and native dogwoods provide a colorful border for the zoysia fairways, wispy fescue maintained rough, Scottish Links style unmaintained rough and bentgrass greens. Other holes cross the streams and protected wetlands with both hand-crafted boardwalks and natural earthen bridges.

The 9th and 18th par 4 front and back finishing holes have right and left doglegs which cross the stream onto hillside-backed and rock-wall fronted greens situated directly below the clubhouse. The clubhouse sits prominently on a ridge overlooking both the 9th and 18th greens.

There are no tricks at Mattaponi Springs. Players can use the driver on every hole. The fairways are long and wide and sculpted to collect errant tee shots. The course is designed to reward proper shot execution and ball positioning - a feat achievable only through the use of the full selection of clubs.

The course is in great shape for the hot, dry summer we have had. Other courses in the area have had problems but not Mattaponi Springs. Very few golfers were playing when we were there so no delays for our twosome. Reasonable rates for seniors. Really enjoyable experience.
