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.

Great Golf-Not so Good Score

Course was in good shape; no excuse for me not playing better. A little tough for my first go at it; definitely have to manage your game to the course. Looking forward to playing it again next golf season.

Challenging and beautiful, fun course in Virginaia. We will be back !!! Love it.

My wife and I love this beautiful, challenging, fair golf course . With plenty of choices in Williamsburg, this is memorable. Ravines nestle some fairways, while other fairways are more straighforward. The hardest par 5 in Virginia is here and it is FUN!. two or three sets of ladies tees and a total of about 12 combinations of tees will suit just about any golfer except beginner here. love it. WE WILL BE BACK!

Had a Fantastic Blast playing this challenging course

This is a fabulous, fun, challenging, and beautufully maintained course whose layout maximizes the beauty of Williamsburg's hilly, woodsy terrain while incorporating the terrain into the design of many holes. There are blind shots. Not only do I recommend driving up to see what you've got ahead before many shots, I highly recommend playing your appropriate tee box. This course and Kiskiack are similar, with Colonial Heritage the superior course. Its fairways are proper country club variety, where with a good ball strike, you can hit the shot you intend. All positive recent remarks on golf now are true. In addition, their Five tee boxes and Combo tees , rated for men and women total 17 different slope/and ratings. Thus, large varieties of players can enjoy one of Virginia's most highly rated golf courses.

Slow day.

Was "cart path only", which made for slow play. Tee time was 2 pm and we didn't get to play the 18th due to darkness. However, one of my favorite courses in the area!

Excellent course

Looks quite short on the card but plays much longer. Was wet when we played but conditions were not bad. Lot of risk/reward shots and forced carries but an interesting layout. 3hrs for 18 holes in a twosome

A Toughy!

The Bermuda Rough is too Fluffy and Deep for the average resort Golfer! Needs cut! Also you must play the proper tees because with little or no roll in the fairways second shots are long into the par 4’s. Arthur Hill Courses are Punishing in all respects. Play UP like Jack Nicklaus urges! One more thing, a layout of the course on a sheet or scorecard is needed. Going in Blind is Very Difficult!

nice

This course has a lot going for it and they are doing a good job with keeping the fairways and the tees and greens in great shape! Unfortunately though, the rough is too long! We're not playing the PGA Championship out here so I wish they could do a little bit better with that.

Absolutely lovely course!

We played on a 95 degree plus day. It was after 1 pm and the course was pretty empty. We LOVED the layout. The course was beautifully maintained, staff friendly, and pace of play extremely fast. We cannot wait to play again!
