Golf at Ford's Colony Country Club
Ford’s Colony features three distinct championship golf courses designed by Dan Maples, each with its own challenges and highlights. This semi-private golf club features some of the best resort golf in Virginia, and the unique courses are sure to keep you coming back.
Blackheath- With its undulating fairways and plentiful water features, the Blackheath Course is the most picturesque at Ford's Colony. Every green is protected by bunkers on the course, and water comes into play on 13 of its holes. The Blackheath Course, which opened in its current form in 1999, is the only course at Ford’s Colony that plays to a par 71.
Blue Heron- The longest of the three courses. It is a continuous 18 with long, challenging par 3s and par 5s and generous fairways carved out of dense wetlands, where different species of birds, fish and other wildlife can often be spotted. The course has new Champion Bermuda greens which provide the smoothest surfaces throughout the year.
Marsh Hawk- Well placed bunkers, natural lakes, and elevation changes are the defenses of this traditional, tree-lined course, which opened in 1985. Marsh Hawk was the host of the 1998 and 1999 Virginia State Opens, a Monday Qualifier for the 2005 - 2007 Henrico County Open and a Monday Qualifier for the PGA Tour’s Michelob Championship for 12 straight years.The Golf Performance Center at Ford's Colony Country Club
We welcome players of every skill level and age. Our Performance Center is the ideal complement to the diversity and challenge of our 54 holes of championship golf courses.
