Take a Swing at Gloucester Golf Courses

There are some wonderful Gloucester golf opportunities in the area around town. Among all the golf clubs and courses, these are some of the places BBOnline thinks you should seriously consider visiting.

Gloucester Country Club
6731 Golf Club Road
Gloucester, Virginia 23061
(804) 693-2662‎

The most obvious place to play golf around Gloucester is at the Gloucester Country Club. It offers a small 9-hole golf course with public accessibility. The course is flat, so it is easy to walk around and you don't really need to hire a cart. This is a great place for unpretentious golfers or for beginners who want to learn and practice. However, professional golfers won't probably like it here, mainly because of the fact that the course needs little improvements; the greens are a bit bumpy and the fairways are not perfectly mowed.
