Spring Creek Wins 14th Place On Best In Virginia.
Spring Creek is proud to announce we have been honored in Golf Digest's biennial 'Best in State' ranking for Virginia. We are excited to have earned No. 14.
From Golf Digest: "There’s an admirable polish and sophistication to the holes at Spring Creek as they wind attractively through a quiet property of hardwoods and pine, with the first nine circling out broadly through undisturbed nature and the second moving out and back along the Spring Branch stream. Winner of Golf Digest’s Best New Public Course Under $75 in 2007, the scale and positioning of the bunkering, for reference, brings to mind Bethpage Black, while the topography of streams and ravines recall Mike Strantz’s no-longer-open Stonehouse on the opposite side of Richmond, which won the magazine’s Best New Upscale Course in 1996. Most greens are angled to the line of play and present a decision between playing to a safe, open side or a challenging side only accessible through strategic positioning and precision."
Golf Digest’s Best in State rankings are based on more than 80,000 evaluations over a 10-year cycle by their 1,900 low-handicap panelists, who assess candidate courses based on the following criteria: Shot Options, Challenge, Design Variety, Conditioning, Aesthetics, Character and Fun. Golf Digest has been publishing a Best in State ranking every other year since 1977, making this the 24th edition.
