The Water’s Edge is a private 712 acre quiet community hosting a PGA golf course hailed as one of the top in the mid-Atlantic, home of the famed Swing For A Cure every Spring, hosting some of the greatest achievers in golf. The course is known for a variety of unique obstacles from its signature island green to nine holes playing across and along the shoreline of Smith Mountain Lake. The course offers bent grass tees, fairways and greens and hand raked sand bunkers. While the greatest talents of golf visited this course, their collection of comments was always the same – challenging and greatest of experience for private membership club.
The Water's Edge golf course is the jewel of the community. The 18-hole, PGA Championship Golf Course was designed by the late R.F. Loving, Jr., ASGC, a nationally renowned golf course architect. In 2007, the golf course was renovated by famed golf course architect Richard Mandell and Aspen Corporation. Mandell sought to maintain Loving’s “bunker style” architecture, with geometric rounded edges and serpentine lines. Among the $5 million dollar improvements: A1 and A4 bentgrass greens with more manageable playing slopes, replaced irrigation systems, reconfigured sand bunkers, enlarged free-form tee boxes, and removed trees for playability as well as breathability of the turf.
Whether you’re teeing off on the famous island green on hole 7, viewing the Peaks of Otter while teeing off on hole 6 or chipping to the green on hole 10, the absolute beauty of its surroundings will take your breath away. Our hole 18 was rated as one of the more challenging holes in the region.
