James City County is pleased to announce that Ford’s Colony Country Club held a ribbon cutting ceremony for their recently renovated Marsh Hawk Course. The golf course was originally built and designed by Dan Maples in 1985 and is a traditional tree-lined golf course with small undulating greens and strategically placed bunkers.
The renovations included replacement of turf on all 18 greens of the Marsh Hawk Course, extension of the greens and course improvements for enhanced play-ability. All turf was replaced with new Champion Bermuda grass, which has a better growth pattern and a faster recovery time.
In 2016, the clubhouse at Ford’s Colony received major renovations including a new lobby area, upgrades to both restaurants and a new outdoor patio with amenities.
Ford’s Colony Country Club offers 54 holes of championship golf, driving range, golf academy and two restaurants. The facility is open year round to members and the general public. Ford’s Colony Country Club can also host events including weddings, corporate meetings and golf tournaments. Ford’s Colony Country Club has been a member of the ClubCorp family since 2015. ClubCorp is a leading owner-operator of private golf and country clubs and owns or operates more than 200 golf and country clubs, business clubs, sports clubs and alumni clubs.
Ford’s Colony is an award winning multi-generational community of over 5400 residents in more than 2500 homes. It is situated on 3,200 acres in Virginia’s Historic Triangle, comprised of Williamsburg, Jamestown, and Yorktown. With the nearby Chesapeake Bay and Atlantic Ocean beaches to the east and the beautiful Shenandoah Valley and the Blue Ridge Mountains to the west, Ford’s Colony is surrounded by a wide range of outdoor activities, entertainment, arts and cultural venues, good shopping and great dining.
The gated community was designed and built along landscaped roads that meander in and around a landscape of ponds, wetlands, and woodlands. Ford’s Colony offers about 60 clubs and activities to suit residents of all ages who come from across the country and around the world with diverse backgrounds, experiences, and careers. Amenities include two community pools, hard and clay tennis courts, a nature trail, walking and bicycle paths, as well as the Ford’s Colony Country Club with three golf courses. Many of the residents are active volunteers, both inside the gates and with organizations across the Historic Triangle.
