We really enjoy our time at the Marriott Manor Club at Ford’s Colony. The two bedroom villas are spacious and lovely. Friendly staff. Beautiful location. Bikes and walking trails and golf on property.

Ford's Colony Golf is a absolutely gorgeous area. We played the Marsh Hawk course today. It is in beautiful shape with Bermuda grass. This is a very challenging course. Friendly staff.

The layout of the BlackHeath course is gorgeous. They have been working hard to repair it after the Hurricane. Other than drainage issues it was in good shape. The greens we're very fast.

Tricky entrance. Most GPS systems do not have the information to get you in the correct entrance road. Once in, the grounds are beautiful and we liked the location outside the crowded Williamsburg center.

Well considering I had been here 5 years ago and it was great, I was truly disappointed. Many fairways were soggy and the grass was yellow brown like it was dead. Greens were fine. The challenge is here and can be awesome but not this...More

This review is about the golf course. We have played there several times and love all 3 courses. We did have one problematic round tho'. Our electric cart died on about the 12 hole. No marshals in sight so we had to phone the clubhouse....More
