       Comments from Golfers at Colonial Heritage:

       2008  Best secret in Williamsburg!!

      -Beautiful, well-maintained, chess game.

      Yardage book is a must. Luckily, they handed me one when I paid.
      Study the book carefully and decide your strategy all the way to the green BEFORE you put your tee in the ground!
      This is not a “grip it and rip it” course. On several holes, you really need to weigh risk/ reward before you pull out the driver. Many people complain about this course being too hard– but it is not at all, if you THINK first!

      Best thing about it…. it’s empty! I played last weekend (Labor Day). Saturday I played 9 holes, teed off around 5:30. Sunday I played 18, starting around 4. I did not see another person on the course. No Exaggeration!

      If you want a beautiful chess game of a golf course all to yourself, you gotta try this place!

      (I debated quite a bit about sharing my secret, but its too good not to share. Plus, I’d hate for them to close because of lack of business, it’s obvious they put a lot of money into the maintenance. So, PLEASE don’t come when I’m there… I like it empty.)

       2008
       

      We were a female and a new male golfer, and we played this challenging – gorgeous! – course in July, ’08 in 106 degree weather. It was a fantastic golf course/experience, and we will be sure to recommend the course to all our friends. In fact, we’d even consider moving to the community – just to have more access to the course. It is spectacular!

      ProShop personnel were friendly and helpful, and there was a valuable booklet available for purchase that gave excellent descriptions of each hole – and was available for only $1.00!!!

      Final comment – don’t be intimidated. It’s a challenging course, but it’s well within the reach of players who are aware of their own capabilities and willing to let better players play-thru and enjoy their own game.

      2008
      Beautiful and deceptive, some will say too tricky, and I will guarantee it kicks your butt by ten strokes more than you usually shoot. Too many blind shots make it imperative to have a map of the hole or caddy neither of which are provided. (You do get a pin placement map but that is it). My heart hurts to see such a beautiful course falling to recession with a skeleton staff, no on course attendants, and a cloud of doom on the faces of the few remaining workers.
      2008
      Gorgeous course! Local knowledge a huge plus. Greens like pool table tops, yet very fair.
      2007
      wow, what a beautiful course! very challenging. must hit fairways to score well. excellent!
