The Championship course at Independence Golf Club in Midlothian became Tom Fazio's first public course in Old Dominion in 2001. Fourteen years later, Lester George renovated the layout, redesigning bunkers, re-grassing fairways and converting greens to Champion Bermuda grass.

Working alongside Vinny Giles, the Virginia-based amateur golf legend, George also cut down trees that were encroaching on play as well as removing a number of bunkers which were hindering ground game options around the greens. The result is a more enjoyable playing experience and a better test of golf for everybody.

Feature holes on the front nine include the slightly left doglegging par five 4th and the 535-yard 8th (rated stroke index 1). On the back nine, the short par four 10th flirts with a small lake on the left side while the tee shot on the 18th must fly the same body of water before an approach is played to the home green.
