Designed by George W. Cobb and opened for play in 1976, the Golden Eagle course is carved out of Virginia's beautifully wooded landscape around a 50-acre lake. The course features many elevation changes and well placed bunkers for all skill levels.

The Bermuda fairways and Bentgrass putting surfaces play to a par of 72. There are three major water hazards of particular interest which are 5, 9, and 18. Seven and 16 can also play harder than par. From the championship tees, the Golden Eagle is 7,025 yards and has a slope of 136. With a 74.4 USGA rating, this Virginia golf course is host to numerous VSGA and Mid Atlantic PGA events.
