Our group of travelling seniors played here 3-15-14 during our escape from the wintry north. We paid $26 with Tee Time book, which is a great price for this outstanding golf course. Tim, the young staffer in the pro shop, was very cordial and made us feel very welcome: he is a credit to the organization!

Weather the day we played was a factor, as the wind was really howling, though the temps were not bad: nonetheless, our play was greatly influenced by the gale, so that may color my comments.

First, several holes are surrounded by houses (e.g., we counted 30+ houses along the #11 fairway), which diminishes the ambiance considerably. Otherwise, it's a really interesting design, some excellent visuals, and a couple of really diabolical holes, notably #5 and #17.

#5 is a dogleg uphill par 5, with a fairway split laterally by a bog, tempting the bold (and the unwary) to try to blow across it from the tee: good luck with that shot! The fairway then wends its way steeply uphill, such that one's third shot (or fourth, or whatever) is almost certainly gonna be a severely uphill lie to a humped green sited behind a bunker.

#17 is similar: it's a longish par 3 uphill at least 70 feet from the tee box, and the landing area is crowned, so that balls can easily carom off into the ravines on e sither side. The green is deep, but narrow, with two distinct tiers with about eight feet of vertical separation between them...and the whole green slopes from back-to-front. Good luck with that downnhill putt!

Generally, we found the coucrse to be a nice challenge, and enjoyable. Fairways are typically wide enough to work with, the bunkers are plentiful, but playable, and we thought the greens were excellent, especially considering the time of year. Course is VERY hilly, and not walkable except by ironmen/women-in-training.

A negative: no hole diagrams on either the tee box or the scorecard: for first-timers, that means a $6 yardage book is essential: none of the various GPS' we had with us had enough info in it.

Course is a bit north of Williamsburg proper, and just a few hundred yards from the Williamsburg Pottery Factory, which has legendary status in the minds of some kitsch-seekers I know. That may be a good "staging point" for a non-golfer spouse while enjoying this fine course. I highly recommend.

I play this course 70+ times ayear. I would highly recommend it to any golfer in the Williamsburg area. I have played most of the courses in the area and feel this course is the best in the area even better than the Golden Horseshoe courses.
