Spotlight: Magnolia Green GC


There’s a reason why Golf Digest recently named Magnolia Green Golf Club to its Top 10 “Best New Courses” list.

The Nicklaus Design in association with Tom Clark is a Virginia masterpiece, expertly incorporating the area’s natural beauty with Bermuda grass fairways and Bentgrass putting surfaces draped over undulating terrain.

Simply put, the course is gorgeous. 

Golf Digest called Magnolia Green Golf Club the “best layout of any public course in Richmond” and lauded the “imagination of the green complexes.”

We couldn’t agree more.  

Take for example the long, par-5 No. 10 with bunkers that dissect the fairway and a triple-tiered green that requires a precise approach to set up a possible birdie.  Or the risk-reward, drivable par-4 No. 2 that can kick-start a round with an early eagle or put you on your heels with a quick bogey.  And the home hole is a drama-packed, long par-4 with a nerve wrecking second shot over a gorge to a well-guarded, heavily undulated green.

The cornerstone of Magnolia Green – central Virginia’s premier multi-generational, active lifestyle residential community – the golf course first opened as nine-hole Westham Golf Club in 2010.  iStar, developer of the master-planned Magnolia Green community, invested more than $3 million to build out the final nine holes, making it a full 18-hole layout enjoyable for players of all abilities.

In total, iStar has invested nearly $50 million in the Moseley-area community with a second residential phase and $10 million amenity package – which will include an aquatics center, golf clubhouse, tennis facility and golf practice area – scheduled to break ground in 2016.
