Course designer Davis Love III expressed great praise for the new course. “People are going to love the new Birdwood Golf Course because it is actually a new course. There are holes on all-new land, holes going in different directions than people remembered, plus a new putting course, short course and a new team building and practice facility for UVA men’s and women’s teams.” Alongside the praise and hard work from Davis comes additional recognition from Golf Magazine and their field of expert course raters. Out of nearly 350 courses in Virginia, Golf Magazine rated the new Birdwood Golf Course as the seventh best course in the state.
