The 18-hole course at Two Rivers Country Club at Williamsburg, Virginia, US, has reopened following a US$1.6 million renovation.

Originally designed by Tom Fazio II Designs, the renovation was undertaken by Spence Golf Design, and has seen new greens and new bunkers put in place, all rebuilt in compliance with United States Golf Association specifications.

Other renovations include heat and salt tolerant 007 bentgrass greens, rebuilt fairway and greenside bunkers, renovated bridges and an improved practice facility, which features seven target greens, a practice bunker and putting green.

Two Rivers is renowned for its 1,000 yards of river frontage at the course’s finish, and lies on The Governor’s Land private community in Williamsburg.

The renovation involved more than 7,000 tons of greens mix, 4,000 tons of gravel, 3,500 tons of fill dirt and 1,800 tons of bunker sand.

“The team at Spence Golf and at Two Rivers Country Club worked diligently with a short window of time to seed the new greens last year and to return the course to the exceptional level of playability that our members expect,” says Brent Graham, CGCS, director of golf maintenance at Two Rivers Country Club who managed the project. “We have exceeded this objective, and the course is easily now one of the best in Virginia.”
