#10 of 42 in Golf in Virginia
Golf Course · Hidden Gem · Outdoor Activity
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”. 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’ and #9 on Golfweek’s Best Campus Courses in America, 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.

  • To pay 79.00 for a round on a Friday, the pin settings were ridiculous. Not player friendly and the course staff responsible for oversight should consider whether or not they want players/people to return. Not enjoyable. The course was good shape except tee boxes were still showing evidence of being aerated. I will say the food at Preston’s was excellent!
  • Really nice golf course. The New River is an amazing backdrop to this Pete Dye gem. I will be back again for sure
