Very Nice Course

Course was great, and the check-in staff was fantastic and friendly. Only wish it gave the non-members the option to walk instead of ride only especially since it was cart path only due to the amount or rain. Greens showed some areas that needed to be re-done along with the bunkers were "clay" and price is pretty high at $85 per-person with no discounts available. Overall though the course was fun and challenging. I would recommend, play early though and get out before the members whom get to walk get out there. We were the first off the tee so we didn't have to wait at all, which was nice.

Haven't Played Any Ford's Colony Courses in 15 Years!

It's just been a long time since I've tried any of the Ford's Colony courses and was able to get onto Marsh Hawk. It was in great shape with the fairways cut tight and the rough not too punishing. The staff was extremely helpful and welcoming, and seemed to want to make sure we enjoyed our time at Ford's Colony. The only reason I gave it a 4 vs 5 star rating was because some of the bunkers were full of water, others were more dirt than sand, but yet others had nice sand...so in a nutshell they were very inconsistent. Additionally, we followed a 9-hole league and a foursome of older members walking and it was a tad slow. The marshal came around twice to apologize, but didn't want to "take on" the members by asking them to pick up the pace. I can certainly understand that, so we just enjoyed the day while we waited. There were some interesting holes and plenty of tees to choose from--with two sets of blended tees. I didn't remember very many holes, but enjoyed the day and the course. We will be back and will try the other two.

Windy but Great Day

As usual Fords Colony looking good . People always friendly , helpful and make you feel welcome . Played Marsh Hawk , the oldest of the three courses and old school feel . Tree lined fairways narrow shoots but not very long . Playing partner loved the greens , he was dialed in but little sandy . Did get consistent roll . Most of course pretty good shape and really do like the layout . Environment , people and the fun layouts will make us drive down from Richmond to play again soon
