The unmistakable elements of a Pete Dye design and Virginia Tech’s commitment to excellence and tradition are immediately apparent from the moment you arrive at “The River”. Chris Lutzke — the Project Architect for Pete Dye — worked meticulously to ensure the golf course design had all the details come to fruition. Most people simply say, “Wow!” The extraordinary new clubhouse completed in May of 2010 rests on a rock cliff seventy feet above the historic and pristine New River. Spectacular views of the golf course and the river will confirm that you have arrived at a very special destination. A friendly welcome (perhaps even a Hokie Hi!) by our staff awaits you whether you are here for golf, to dine in the restaurant, or attend a special event.
Rated 4 1/2 Stars by Golf Digest’s ‘Best Places to Play’, #9 on Golfweek’s Best Campus Courses in America and # 5 in Virginia by Golfweek’s Best Courses to Play, the golf course provides a test of strategy and skills for golfers of every skill level. Dye’s signature bunkers, small elevated greens and collection points are evident throughout your round. Abundant wildlife and native birds including a pair of soaring bald eagles are frequently spotted and add to the panoramic Blue Ridge Mountain setting.
