About The Course
The 180-acre course was designed by Bill Ward, Jr. who was an up and coming designer with six golf courses to his credit. Designing 27 holes, Ward made each one with a distinct character to offer a wide range of challenges. Each hole has a story to tell.
Ward brought new ideas to Virginia golf, taking elements from major courses in Florida and California. There are elevated tees; bounce bunkers; rock and railroad tie walls in and around the greens; bunkers waiting to catch an errant shot; an island green; a stunning waterfall Par 3; and seven water crossings making it one of the best golf courses in Virginia.
Our signature hole is a par 6, and when played from the championship tee is 841 yards. This is recognized by the Guinness’ Book of World Records as “The Longest Golf Hole in the United States.” The design gives every level of golfer an option on how to play the hole – while challenging the golf pro and low-handicapper, it offers a fair test for the high-handicapper. You will always remember you played “The Longest!”
This past year, Meadows Farms Golf Course was awarded Best Golf Course in Central Virginia by Virginia Living Magazine on their Wander List. Our Superintendent, Scott Caskie has turned our course into one of the best golf courses in Virginia with his meticulous care of the grounds. Along with Fescue roughs, pristine Bentgrass greens and gorgeous Bermuda fairways. The Dotson family has repaved the asphalt cart paths, which makes for an enjoyable ride around the course. They have also built gorgeous bulkheads around tee boxes and greens that are close to the water. All the trees have been trimmed and some have even been removed. The course is mowed from wall to wall to keep pace of play a priority so your golf experience is more enjoyable.
Meadows Farms Golf Course recently purchased 100 brand new gas golf carts for your riding pleasure. Each cart has USB charging ports so you can charge your phone while playing golf. This is a great feature if you like listening to music, or if you have downloaded our GPS app. Just so you do not get lost on the cart paths we have three different colored arrows on the course for your convenience, corresponding with the name of each of the three nines we have here. You will not get lost and you will have a great time following the unique nine that you are on and using your MFGC app to guide you on the fairways.
As of November 2019, we have gone under new management. The Dotsons decided to lease the course to Dean Sumner, who is a licensed superintendent, has built and run many successful golf courses and has a background in finance. While the Dotsons all ran this course with love and made this course as amazing as it is, Dean plans on bringing it up to the next level.
Everyone remembers when they played Meadows Farms! Not only is it one of the best golf courses in Virginia but it is also a memorable. Let Meadows Farms Golf Course be your next golf destination. You won’t be disappointed.
