3/11/2007Not even a Central Virginia winter, albeit a mild one, could hide the beauty of this outstanding new area course. On March 11, 2007 the Waggle photographer and I ventured some 10 miles off of I-95 to sample the delights of Mattaponi Springs. In it’s first year of operation in 2005, the course was recognized by Golf Digest as one of America’s best new courses for a “pure golf experience”. While the zoisa fairways were brown, and the trees were devoid of leaves, it was easy to imagine how fantastic springtime golf would be at this course. The course gets a lot of year round play, particularly from golfers from the Baltimore/Washington area, who come down for the day.

The staff makes you feel welcome from the start as soon as you enter the beautiful clubhouse over looking the 18th hole. The finishing hole has one of those classic “everybody’s watching me” verandas adjacent to the green. Each hole is set apart from the other and well framed by trees and contours, not houses and apartments. Several of the par 4s are particularly memorable, such as #4 which is 470 yards up hill, and #10 at an uphill distance of only 339 yards. Two other par 4s stand out. One is the 9th, with its dramatically blind tee shot, and another is #11 with it’s split fairway. Imagine if I drove away remembering the par 4s, what challenge the par 3s and 5s presented! Ayce
