Colonial Heritage Golf Club offers the only Arthur Hills-designed layout in Williamsburg, and it is also the city's only gated golf community. Golfers looking for a place where they can just 'grip it and rip it' will be out of luck on this course, which requires skill and strategy. It is a thought-provoking design where golfers will want to weigh all of the risk and reward options first. The layout plays through deep ravines that provide interesting changes in elevation. The golf course also features undulating fairways and large, fast greens that are bordered by strategically placed bunkers as well as water hazards that come into play on several holes. Colonial Heritage G.C. definitely provides a good challenge, even for a seasoned player, but beginners shouldn't feel too intimidated. The golf course offers some room for error and the risk-reward opportunities appeal to low and high handicappers alike.

Our only reason not to give it 5 stars was the absence of restrooms on the course.

Tough course

Couldn’t believe how tough this course was. There was no starter to give pointers about the course. That would have helped us decide what tees to play from. Plays very long. Many ravines in play. To give an idea of how many carries and how difficult the courts was. There were drop areas on every hole. Have to make long carries to get to the center of fairway or wind up in Ravine either left or right of fairway plus the long carry. Once you get to your ball you see another long carry towards the hole. If you don’t land on the green you’re in another ravine. Have to be a long hitter and low handicap to play. Or it is a challenge. On the plus side the fairways are in great shape and green roll true

A couple Challenging holes

Upon arrival the starter made sure all the men playing before us had a 5 minute overview of the course, pin placements etc. For us 2 women...nothing. Pace was a bit slow, greens recently aerated so they were bumping and sandy.
We enjoyed our round & will return

Nice Course, Aerated Greens Deserve Notice or Discount Though

Enjoyed the course itself. Had quite a few challenging holes, especially on some of the tee shots. Tee boxes, fairways, rough, and bunkers were in great shape, the greens had just been aerated though, and so putting was an absolute crapshoot. I feel like there should be notice posted online when booking before showing up to a $70 round and having to deal with that. Either that or offer a discount on the price. Made for a frustrating day. I think with the greens being in good shape, this would have easily been a full 5 star course.

Great Course Needs Marshall

Played here for the first time. Tee time was 3:40, I went out about 3:30 I was only able to play 17 holes because of the slow pace of play. More beer drinkers than golfers were in front of me. The pace made my experience at the course less than memorable. I don’t plan on returning unless I’m in the first group out in the morning. If your looking for a course to play after 3pm I’d skip this one unless you want to play 9 in 3hrs.

Its Just There

First, let me just say that it is not a bad course. The issue is that it just lacks character. It serves its purpose of being a community golf course. I saw what appeared to be an active women's golf program, which is great to see. However, I can think of several courses in the area that are more fun to play.
