Built with innovative water-conservational systems, The Club at Viniterra is the newest 18-hole championship golf course designed by acclaimed golf course architect Rees Jones. The course is maintained using environmentally conservational practices. The Club at Viniterra saves as much as 80% of the water consumed by traditional courses, and exclusively uses the grass hybrid “Celebration,” which is far more draught-resistant and requires 70% less water to maintain than traditional course sods.
The course features working vineyards alongside fairways throughout, a signature hallmark of the new Viniterra community.
Nestled in a beautifully wooded area between Richmond and Williamsburg, the Viniterra golf course incorporates a surprisingly wide variety of natural elevations, changing as much as 70 feet from tee to green on several holes. Multiple tee boxes can be found on each hole, usually five or six, to provide the overall yardage and angle-of-play flexibility required for golfers of all skill levels. Depending on which of the tee markers a golfer elects to play, this flexibility allows the course to measure anywhere between 5,300 and 7,600 yards.
The Club at Viniterra is the only course in this part of Virginia’s Peninsula that incorporates working vineyards alongside fairways throughout, one of the signature hallmarks of the new Viniterra community.
The course features old-growth specimen oak trees that Jones has incorporated into the design as corner points along several of the course’s key holes. Moreover, Viniterra’s estate home sites were designed so that no homes face directly into the view of another and will have minimal impact on the golf experience.
Hole No. 9 is already noted for its unique beauty as it finishes along a lake and the clubhouse while flanked by one of the working vineyards. Another Par 5 is No. 10 which also includes picturesque vineyards along the fairway and a bunker complex overlooking yet another stand of vineyards.
As the name suggests, the neighborhood is also close to the community’s vineyards and the New Kent Winery a one-of-a-kind facility producing wines from the community’s vineyards. Thousands of old bricks and dozens of antique timbers went into the construction of the winery, where the making of chardonnays, merlots, and other varietals and blends can be seen and the outcome sampled.
