With one visit to Pete Dye River Course of Virginia Tech it is obvious why Golf Magazine recently selected it as one of the best new public access courses in the United States. From elevated tees, the majestic course wraps along 2 1/2 miles of the majestic New River. Panoramic views are the norm and the passing of an occasional train enhances the beauty of the surroundings.
The Course is also bisected by a 70′ rock cliff, which created the opportunity to build two distinct but complimentary nine-hole loops which start and finish adjacent to the club area. The linear nature of these two nines has allowed 14 of the 18 holes to have views to the river. Eight of these play directly to the river’s edge.
The River Course was renovated by world renowned architect Pete Dye in 2005. It is a daily fee public facility. A complete practice facility with a driving range, large putting green, chipping green, and sand bunkers is also available, as well as a fully stocked Professional Golf Shop and a complete teaching center.
