The par-71 golf course at The Greene Hills Club in Stanardsville, Virginia measures 6400 yards from the back tees. It was designed by Raymond F. Loving, Jr., ASGCA, and opened for play in 1968. Even though our club is private, the public is welcome to share our beautiful course with our members Monday through Thursday and enjoy one of the best golf experiences in Virginia. Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Holidays are considered weekends at Greene Hills. Based on availability, there may be tee times open to the public for weekend play. We hope to see you on the course soon!

Posting Scores - VSGA Handicap Policy
Virginia observes an active posting season, requiring the year-round posting of scores for handicap purposes. Rounds played in Virginia during any month will be acceptable for score posting. VSGA members receive an updated Handicap Index twice monthly throughout the year - on the first and 15th of each month throughout the year.
An established U.S.G.A. Handicap is required to compete in any Greene Hills golf competition. (The exception is Men's Member/Guest tournament) Scores will be posted by the Pro Shop staff, not by the players. An attested scorecard must be returned to the Pro Shop immediately following every round. Cards are accepted for either 9-hole or 18-hole rounds. If you fail to submit a scorecard, a score equal to your lowest of last 20 scores will be entered for you. For rounds completed after the Pro Shop is closed, a drop box is provided in the Hills Grille. Scores from other courses should also be kept. Please return a dated and signed scorecard to the Pro Shop at the first opportunity. Everyone's cooperation is appreciated and helps to make our competitions more enjoyable and equitable.The handicap fee is $27 per person per year. Juniors are free.
The USGA Handicap System utilizes a way to adjust scores called Equitable Stroke Control, which sets a maximum number that a player can post on any hole depending on the player's Course Handicap. Equitable Stroke Control requires you to adjust, for handicap purposes, your hole scores when they are higher than your maximum number you can post.
Additional Note - If you are a male over 65 and have a double-digit handicap, you may play the gold tees in tournaments at GH.
Hole in One Club
To participate in the GHC Hole-In-One Club, please see the Golf Shop or Business Office. There is no fee to join. As a participant of this group, a $2.00 charge will be added to your bill for each hole-in-one and if you are at GHC on the day of the hole-in-one, you receive a free drink. The member making the hole-in-one wins the remainder of the money collected from the HIO Club members minus the beverage bill. (Note: you must join "per person". If you have a family membership with 2 golfing members who want to both join the HIO club, be sure to indicate that when you talk to the Pro Shop or Business Office.)
Congratulations to these golfers for great Hole-in-One Shots!

Use of Carts
Only players with a valid driving license may drive golf carts. Signs located adjacent to the number 1 and number 10 tees prescribe limitations on where and how carts shall be driven to avoid damage to the course. The types of access are:
Cart Paths Only:
All four wheels must remain on path at all times.
Drive on the cart path to a point opposite your ball, drive 90 degrees to your ball (even in the rough), play your shot and return to the path at 90 degrees, then use the path to advance to your next shot. Avoid riding in the fairway.
Drive carts on the cart paths and fairways only! Keep carts out of the rough except when crossing at 90 degrees from cart path to fairway and back to cart path. Avoid riding in the rough.
No Carts Signs:
These signs near the green indicate the point where carts must return to the path and remain on the path the remainder of the hole.
CARTS MUST REMAIN ON THE PATH ON PAR 3 HOLES
No cart shall have more than two riders; nor should it contain more than two bags. Players must return all carts to the golf shop cart area immediately after completion of use.
Keep all regular or motorized pull carts off tees, at least 30' from greens and fringes, out of sand traps and off any other sensitive areas such as muddy terrain.
**All players must check in at the Pro Shop. You will receive information about any changes to standard procedures at that time.
Central Virginia Golf Alliance
Several area golf courses have joined together to form the Central Virginia Golf Alliance. This Alliance will create and promote added value to club memberships and help fill unused tee times. Those clubs currently participating are: Spring Creek, Birdwood, Greene Hills, Meadowcreek and Old Trail. Several other clubs are awaiting approval from their management and are expected to join the Alliance.Greene Hills golfing members will be able to play Spring Creek and Birdwood for $40 and Meadowcreek and Old Trail for $30 (cost includes cart). All tee times must be made through the Golf Shop. When requesting a tee time, please give the names of everyone in your group. Non-members must pay the normal accompanied guest rate at the course you'll be visiting.
Tee times will be based on availability. Full golfing members will be able to request tee times 7 days a week. Weekday golfing members will be restricted to weekdays. Most play will likely be during the weekdays or on weekend afternoons since most courses are usually booked on weekend mornings.
