Located south of the James River in Powhaten County, The Foundry Golf Club’s course was designed by local developer and one of the founding members, J. K. Timmons, a retired civil engineer, along with his son Jeffrey.

They routed the fairways through the winding wetland areas of Fine Creek, calling in architect Raymond Franklin Loving Jnr – whose father worked with the prolific designer Fred Findlay – to approve their work.

The holes are set out on naturally rolling terrain, doglegging left and right then rising and falling with subtle changes in elevation. Properly judged approach shots are all-important here as the greens are small and heavily contoured.

It’s a walking course, with short walks from green to tee, and the club operates a top class caddie program which helps to maintain a respectable pace of play – as many would say: “golf as it should be”.

The layout can be stretched to 6,901 yards from the back markers and highlight holes include the short par four 4th, the longest par five on the card at the 597-yard 8th and the shortest of the four par threes at the 153-yard 17th.

Description: The Foundry Golf Club was established in 1990, when fairways were routed through the winding wetland areas of Fine Creek. It’s a walking golfer’s course, where a top class caddie program helps to maintain the pace of play. Rating: 6 out of 6 Reviews: 1

I've got it Top 5 in Virginia. If you play the back tees here, you'll say the same. All caddies. Beautiful terrain. The Club is even better than the course. Robert E Lee's last bivouac was just off the 15th hole.
