Best Public Golf Courses in Richmond VA
 
Name Address
(1) Sycamore Creek Golf Course

 

1991 Manakin Rd Manakin Sabot, VA (804) 784-3544
Pound for pound the best public course in the area. The perfect balance of price, course aesthetics, and VARIETY (front and back are distinctive, almost like two different courses).  The greens are in unbelievable shape for a daily fee golf course. Natural grass driving range has the area's best deal in practice buckets. 
(2) Independence Golf Club 600 Founders Bridge Boulevard Midlothian, VA 23113 (804) 594-0261
Mark this down: They will play either a US Open or PGA Championship here one day.  Official home of the VSGA.  This is our state's Beth Page/Torrey Pines.  Fairly high daily fees and McMansion OB bumps them down to the two spot.  The Par 3 is a hidden gem in terms of golf value.
(3) Mattaponi Spring 22490 Penola Rd Ruther Glen, VA 22546 (804) 633-7888
I'd say the prettiest, most well manicured public course in the area.  Green fees $$, of course, reflect that luxury. 
(4) Mill Quarter Plantation 1525 Mill Quarter Rd Powhatan, VA (804) 598-4221 
Wide, forgiving fairways and no annoying homes along the course make it a favorite. Good value.  During hunting seasons, deer like to hide here.  
(5) Royal New Kent, The Tradition 5001 Bailey Rd Providence Forge, VA 23140 (804) 966-7023
Hardest golf course in the region, but you're magically transported to Scotland.
