There’s no better time to join the Independence family! Whether it’s our award winning championship golf course featuring our stunning Champion Bermuda grass greens, our unmatched practice facility or the Mentor Course, Independence is the place to be if you love to play golf!
Stretching across gently rolling terrain on the edge of Virginia’s Piedmont region, the club’s 18-hole Championship Course meanders through woodlands and along quiet, reflecting waters. Independence underwent a full-scale renovation in 2014 and the result is a varied and inventive course appealing to golfers of many skill levels. The changes included regrassing the fairways and greens, ridding the layout of an overabundance of bunkers and strategically removing trees to get air moving, resulting in healthier turf. Five sets of tees range from just over 5,000 yards to more than 7,100 yards from the tips. From a playing perspective, varying shot values mean golfers have a more enjoyable experience and the test is a more palatable one than any time in the course’s history. The ground game is prevalent, especially in front of and around the putting surfaces where closely-mown areas mean players have a number of choices, including running the ball onto the green.
With its variety, Independence promises to excite and challenge all caliber of golfers.
At Independence we strive to be so much more than a golf club. We offer fun, entertainment and leisure for just about everyone.
Frisbee golf, foot golf, golf, corn hole, just to name a few! Come gather at Independence. You’ll find what you’re looking for!
We offer FootGolf on the Bon Secours Mentors Course with 21″ cups!
FootGolf is a precision sport, combining elements of soccer and golf. The individual is given a regulation No. 5 soccer ball, which is then kicked in an effort to reach the cup. Just like in golf, the player with the lowest score wins.
FootGolf is a fun game to play in a group, as a single, or alongside a friend who is golfing the Mentors Course. Your choice!
Like tennis and golf but can’t decide which one you’d like to play? How about trying a new hybrid of the two! Racquet Golf at Independence is played on the Bon Secours Mentor Course to the 8.5 inch cups. To putt, use the Racquet Putter that is attached to the racquets. Come give it a try!
