The Country Club of Virginia is a private club in the Richmond, Virginia area, with three eighteen-hole golf courses. The original CCV consisted of the Westhampton Course in Richmond, which was built by Herbert Barker in 1908, renovated in 1921 by Donald Ross, and renovated again in 1931 by Fred Findlay.
If you’re a history buff, you’ll feel right at home in Richmond, where it feels like every neighborhood has a story to tell. Settled in 1607 by the English, this city has a very rich history, with homes, churches, cemeteries and battlefields all very much preserved and a major part of Richmond’s modern character. The city is also home to hip neighborhoods and districts that entice visitors with cutting-edge restaurants and breweries, as well as diverse shopping, around-town biking tours and one of the oldest farmers’ markets in the country.
After diving into Richmond’s history, explore its upbeat culture. The Carytown neighborhood in the Museum District offers 200-plus eclectic shops, restaurants and a farmers’ market, as well as seriously good thrift shopping. Be sure to take in the city’s highly regarded street art along the way. Several food tours explore the culinary scene (and its thriving craft breweries), among them River City Food Trails, Richmond Brewery Tours and the self-guided Richmond Craft Beer Trail. For more adventure, head to Richmond International Raceway, home of NASCAR Sprint Cup and Xfinity series auto races, or swim, fish and kayak on the James River.
