Posted by Lynnette Tully on Thu, Jun 13, 2013 @ 02:12 PM

Situated at the convergence of the James and Chickahominy Rivers, and only 10 minutes
from Colonial Williamsburg, Governor’s Land provides both tranquillity and convenience. This
masterfully designed private, gated community is set on 1,482 acres with 733 homes and approximately 60% of the land preserved including 200 acres devoted to a wildlife sanctuary. The opportunities for recreation are endless with an award winning golf course, full-service marina, private beach, multiple swimming pools, playgrounds, and tennis courts. The Clubhouse offers stunning river views and features casual and fine dining, a fitness center,
and hosts a variety of social events throughout the year. The homeowners association provides security, timeless and impeccably maintained grounds, 10 miles of walking and biking trails, and is responsible for the maintenance of some Country Club facilities.

Golf Digest Virginia Top 10 course, Governor’s Land boasts an 18 hole championship course designed by the legendary Tom Fazio. The three time Best Modern Day Golf Course Architect created a course that honors the natural beauty and contours of the rivers, the woodlands, and the tidal marshlands. Governor’s Land is Williamsburg’s only private golf course. This members-only course features a great variety of holes that are both challenging and fair. With five sets of tees the course can be played between 5,023 and 6,911 yards. Governor’s Land has hosted sectional qualifying for USGA national championship, top Senior Amateur invitationals, and college tournaments; these further attest to the caliber of the course. You’ll often find members practicing, warming up, or between rounds at the extensive practice facilities that include a driving range, chipping area, and two putting greens.

Two Rivers Harbor Marina and Yacht Club is perfectly positioned on the James River at the mouth of the Chickahominy River. The private harbor can be reached through a lighted channel and can accommodate boats up to 50 feet.

An impressive a ray of amenities above and beyond the course and marina are available for residents to enjoy, as well.
