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.

Continues to get better

Have come to the area and played this course for about 10 years. From the clubhouse to the course and back to the 19th hole it improves every time we return.
It has 7 sets of tees to choose from.so that every player can find a length that works for them. It is well worth the trip from Richmond, Williamsburg and beyond as a great value and a fun day..

Extremely Slow play

The course and staff are great. Took 3 hrs to play the front nine. We ended up leaving after 9 due to the slow play. We allotted 4 1/2 hours to play before our winery reservations. After starting about 40 mins after our tee time due to frost delays, we waited 3 to 4 minutes on every shot. After 9 holes we decided to leave. The course did credit us for 9 holes.

Great Track

Extremely interesting golf course. Very difficult with fairways having a lot of contour. The greens were excellent for this time of year and very challenging. Lots of sand. It was wet after severe rain yesterday so conditions were not great but that was to be expected. I plan to return in warmer weather when the Bermuda fairways start growing.

Fantastic course and friendly staff

The course is kept in great shape and is equally fun and challenging - we had a 9 handicap in our group and a 22. Everyone had a blast. New clubhouse was great. Club pro and starter were great guys.

Can’t wait till the weather turns the course perfect

For March, Viniterra looked very nice and the greens in very good shape. Great job keeping the course like this and can’t wait to play this Spring and Summer.

Beautiful Day

Course is always in good condition. Plenty of traps to protect the green and approaches. Many different tees so yardage can be selected appropriately. Gets lots of play so greens have too many ballmarks but other than that always friendly staff , cart girl and nice golfers out here. Hope they are expanding the parking lot since that is always cramped.

Favorite course in the Richmond area

This course was my favorite public course in the Richmond area while I lived locally from 2018-2020. Since I have moved away, I have made it a point of contingency to play Viniterra anytime I return to visit the Richmond area. A challenging design that offers every golfer the opportunity to use their imagination to pull off shots that would cause any level golfer the desire to return again.

Great layout

Fun golf course- lots of tee choices-greens were not in the best shape but it is March not May or June- I’m sure they will get much better with better weather.
Got great rate on GolfNow so overall it was a really goo day

Amazing! Don’t miss this!

At this time of year, most courses are drowned in mud. Not Viniterra! Dry, firm, and crisp. The layout is spectacular. The cart paths alone warrant the greens fees ... easy on that accelerator! This is a premium course at a value price. The greens keepers here are magicians ... and their greens are diabolical. The driving range is gorgeous as well. Surprised (but glad) it was empty. If you’re thinking about coming here, remove that doubt. You’ll love your day at Viniterra!

Continuing to get drier and better

Viniterra is a very nice course that is getting back to its shape as we dry out from the deluge of the last forever. Very playable even now. Wish people would fix their ball marks.
