Situated between Richmond and Williamsburg, the Club at Viniterra sprawls across abundantly wooded hills. There is no shortage of elevation changes on this Rees Jones and Greg Muirhead-designed golf course. There is a difference of as much as 70 feet from the tee to the green on most of the holes. When combined with the mature trees, the result is a tough layout that demands accuracy. Thankfully though, there are not many water hazards to contend with but there is strategically placed bunkering throughout. The golf course also provides a scenic round with working vineyards running alongside the lush fairways. In addition to being challenging, the Club at Viniterra prides itself on their environmentally sensitive practices. The golf course saves as much as 80 percent of the water used on traditional courses thanks to the use of a drought-resistant grass hybrid.

Nice Course

The course was nice. It had its share of hazards, but they weren't too bad. The course was in great shape. It was a really nice course. The clubhouse was nice and had the staff were nice.
If I had a knock on the course it was the parking area was challenging - not too many spaces. Also, the distance from the last green to the next t-box was a bit of a travel for just about all holes.

Tough course

Great layout and overall a tough course to test your skills. Clubhouse staff have always been great and the range is kept in good condition. I’m a 11 handicap and struggle to stay below 90. If you play the course a couple of times, you’ll start to learn where to miss, because missing in the wrong location hurts the scorecard. Elevated greens make for precision approach shots and bunkers gabble up short or long shots. Love the course and determined to shoot in the low 80’s as I learn the course. Well worth the trip from RVA.

Nice Course...But Slow Play

I always try to play Viniterra when I'm in Williamsburg. It's typically easy to get a tee time, and the course is really a nice configuration of easy and risk-reward holes. Wide fairways, but some weird bounces--and some hidden challenges with the slope of some fairways and strategically placed drop offs and bunkers that narrow the fairway in many landing areas. The staff is extremely nice and accommodating. The only reason I gave it a 4 vs 5 is because they had just aerated the greens and they were tough to read and putt on. The bunkers were exceptional! I haven't played recently in bunkers this nice--with fine, deep sand and easy to hit behind and under the ball without fear of hitting something hard beneath the ball. Very nice! Unfortunately, the pace was slow (almost 5 hours) and it didn't need to be. The group in front of us were clearly playing from tees that were beyond their skill set (if you're playing 6700+ yards, you should be able to hit a drive longer than 160 yds and in the fairway). It was tough to watch, and hampered our round and experience. But, I will always come back because I've had more favorable experiences at Viniterra than not. It's only 40 minutes West of Williamsburg, so it should be on your playing list when visiting the area.

Aerated greens

Everything on the course was in great condition with the exception of the greens which must have been recently aerated as they were extremely bumpy. I imagine in a few weeks time they will be back to their great shape.

What a difference a month makes?

They should be telling customers that the greens are aerated when you are charging $60 a head to play, they were really bumpy affecting all short putts, really disappointing considering they were perfect about a month ago!

Very nice course, clueless ranger

The course deserves a higher rating. Our round was made less than desirable by an overly aggressive ranger who kept telling us to play faster because there was open space ahead of us stating that "no one wants to play a 5 hour round". It should be note that we played the front nine. In 2:04 and the entire 18 in 4:10, a reasonable time for a foursome. This ranger needs basic trading on how to interact with people.

Course in great condition

Course was in excellent shape especially since we have not had any measurable rain in two weeks. The people in the pro shop were very friendly. We had a marshall that was on us for slow play but our group played as a foursome and finished front nine in two hour and total round in just under four hours. He was more focused on us than other groups. I know that it is important to have marshalls on the course to keep the pace flowing but when you are being constantly reminded of being behind, it takes away from your game as he more focused on us rushing.

Feels like your own personal golf course

Every aspect of the course has been top notch. Tee boxes, fairways, bunkers, and the greens have been well maintained.
This course is “top notch” and play again and again. Course layout is challenging for all levels. Kudos! To all!

Good course

The layout changed a little since the last time I played. Some spots were wet but did not effect play. Sand traps were in good condition and the greens were a little fast
