$26 (cart included), played on Wednesday, December 1969 at 12:00 PM

Our group of traveling seniors played here March 27, 2017 at noon en route Williamsburg for a golf getaway: paid $28 with Tee Time Golf Pass. Super choice!

The layout is superb, taking full advantage of the hills and ridgelines. Very pretty course, even with browned-out Bermuda. Great vistas from tees on almost every hole. Also, most holes are stand-alone, with no visuals from preceding or following holes. A few houses visible, but not at all intrusive.

Not a walkable course by anyone, as there are some serious distances between holes, and almost every transition requires a drive down the hill, crossing a bridge, then up the next hill. Cart paths are concrete, too. And those bridges at the bottom are things of craftmanship, not just beam and plank.

Tee boxes are large and flat, fairways are sculpted with naturalistic swales and contours, and no artificial moguls or railroad ties. Bunkers are plentiful, some quite deep. Greens are large, with some contour, but not punitive or tricked up.

Conditions were typical for the time of year, greens had been punched and sanded, and were so-so. Fairways were a little thin in a few spots but playable. Bunkers were in pretty good shape overall.

Clubhouse is in a double-wide but is nicely appointed, as the course seems to be transitioning to more permanent facilities.

The few staff we encountered were friendly and welcoming.

We very much liked the course and highly recommend!

Would travel: 60-120 Miles, Vacation Worthy
