Hanover Country Club -- Tougher than you think
Review by: Anonymous I'm a member and am always amused when newcomers show up and see the short yardage the course plays.They think it'll be a push over and immediately go to the back tees. If you spray your shots, you're going to score a big number. The scenery on the course is very nice, especially in the fall. The course has produced a ladies and mens state champion so there must be some merit to knowing where your shots are headed. It is a very enjoyable afternoon of golf in the countryside of Hanover County Virginia. Its surrounded by homes, farms, and the South Anna River.

Riverfront Golf Club -- Hidden Gem
Review by: Ben The Riverfront Golf Club may be the best keep secret in the Greater Hampton Roads area. After having a chance to play this course over 100 times I feel that I can really talk about this course since I call it home. I have played just about ever course in the hampton roads area and there is really no comparing the riverfront to any other course in the area, espically what they have to offer. First, the pratice facilty is second to none. One thing I love about the driving range is that the hitting area is so huge they can move the tees everyday and still have room left. The point being you are always hitting off a perfect groomed piece of turf. The putting green is always in wonderful condition and if that is not enough the pratice bunkers and chipping green are always in great shape. Well lets get to the best part the course. You will never need to wonder what your yardage is because they have GPS but if you do it is mark on the course anyways. The course offers such a challenge to ever skill level. However, I would not recommend this track to anyone carrying a handicape over 20. The greens on this course are good enough to hold a Pro Tournament espically a nationwide event. The first couple of holes really get you in a nice flow and then it hits you. Maybe the most challenging hole in the area the Par 4 #3 a crazy 483 yards dogleg right. Just to get a look at the green you need to bomb a 275 yard plus drive down the middle. So it is safe to say that you need to save your best drive of the day for this hole are you will be laying up on a par 4 for sure. With trouble short of the green and right in the form of a marsh hazard the only area to bail out on is to the left and that is not much of a bargin either. After recovering from that hole 4,5, and 6 give you a chance to recover with a couple of nice par 4's and a good par 3 in the middle . The par 4 seventh under the right conditions is driveable.
