Course Information

The par-71 golf course at Greene Hills in Stanardsville, Virginia, measures 6,400 yards from the back tees. It was designed by Raymond F. Loving, Jr., ASGCA, and opened for play in 1968.  Greene Hills is semi-private, at limited times the public is welcome to share the beautiful course with our members. Public tee times are most often available Monday through Thursday. Limited public tee times are availble the balance of the week (and Holidays).

We hope to see you on the course soon to enjoy one of the best golf experiences in Virginia!

    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    

Pace of Play

Use of Carts

Only players with a valid drivers license may drive golf carts. No cart shall have more than two riders, nor should the cart contain more than two bags. Players must return all carts to the Golf Shop cart area immediately after completion of use.

Keep all regular or motorized pull carts off tees, at least 30' from greens and fringes, out of sand traps, and off any other sensitive areas such as muddy terrain.

**All players must check in at the Golf Shop. Information about any changes to standard use of cart procedures will be given at that time.**

Signs located adjacent to the number 1 and number 10 tees prescribe limitations on where and how carts shall be driven to avoid damage to the course. The types of access are the following:

Cart Paths Only:

All four wheels must remain on path at all times.

90 Degrees:

Drive on the cart path to a point opposite your ball, drive 90 degrees to your ball (even in the rough), play your shot, and return to the path at 90 degrees, then use the path to advance to your next shot. Avoid riding in the fairway.

Summer Access:

Drive carts on the cart paths and fairways only! Keep carts out of the rough except when crossing at 90 degrees from cart path to fairway and back to cart path. Avoid riding in the rough.

No Carts Signs:

These signs near the green indicate the point where carts must return to the path and remain on the path the remainder of the hole.

CARTS MUST REMAIN ON THE PATH ON PAR 3 HOLES

No cart shall have more than two riders nor should it contain more than two bags. Players must return all carts to the golf shop cart area immediately after completion of use.

Keep all regular or motorized pull carts off tees, at least 30' from greens and fringes, out of sand traps, and off any other sensitive areas such as muddy terrain.

**All players must check in at the Pro Shop. You will receive information about any changes to standard procedures at that time.

 

Posting Scores - VSGA Handicap Policy

Virginia observes an active posting season, requiring the year-round posting of scores for handicap purposes. Rounds played in Virginia during any month will be acceptable for score posting. VSGA members receive an updated Handicap Index twice monthly throughout the year - on the first and 15th of each month.

An established U.S.G.A. Handicap is required to compete in any Greene Hills golf competition. (The exception is Men's Member/Guest tournament.) Scores are posted by the Pro Shop staff, not by the players. An attested scorecard must be returned to the Pro Shop immediately following every round. Cards are accepted for either 9-hole or 18-hole rounds. If a scorecard is not submitted, a score equal to the lowest of the last 20 scores will be entered. For rounds completed after the Golf Shop is closed, a drop box is provided in the Hills Grille which is located directly under the computer in the lobby. Scores from other courses should also be kept. Please return a dated and signed scorecard to the Pro Shop at the first opportunity. Everyone's cooperation is appreciated and helps to make our competitions more enjoyable and equitable.

The handicap fee is $32 per person per year. Juniors under 18 are free. (Billed in March of each year)
The USGA Handicap System utilizes a way to adjust scores called Equitable Stroke Control, which sets a maximum number that a player can post on any hole depending on the player's Course Handicap. Equitable Stroke Control requires you to adjust, for handicap purposes, your hole scores when they are higher than your maximum number you can post.

Additional Note - If you are a male over 65 and have a double-digit handicap, you may play the gold tees in tournaments at GHC.
