The settlers to Williamsburg’s Historic Triangle found great beauty and faced noble challenges in nearby Jamestown and Yorktown. At Williamsburg National, we honor those two nearby historic sites with our existing Nicklaus designed Jamestown Course and our new Yorktown Course designed by Tom Clark. Both courses offer their own “great beauty” and “noble challenges” as today’s visitors enjoy golfing at the award-winning Williamsburg National Golf Club.
The Jamestown Course at Williamsburg National Golf Club is a redesign by Jack Nicklaus. The course plays some 6,953 yards over land upon which an old saw mill once stood. It’s a beautiful layout that cuts through a hardwood forest, taking in along the way vast stretches of wetlands, deep ravines, lakes and ponds. The fairways at Williamsburg National Golf Club are wide and open with generous landing areas; the greens are large and fast. Water is in play on seven of the 18 holes. The signature hole, number 16, is a 202-yard, par 3 that demands a tee shot with a long carry over heavy wetlands to a large green.
The course rating is 72.9 and the slope is 126. Four sets of tees make the course playable for most golfers. The greens feature bent grass and the fairways Bermuda. Bunkers are not a huge problem at Williamsburg National – there are no more than about 45 of them – but there is a fair amount of water to contend with. The Jamestown Course has been voted one of the “Ten Best Courses You Can Play in Virginia” by Golf Digest magazine.
