Golfweek’s senior architectural editor, Bradley Klein, described his experience at Ballyhack a “walk on the wild side” and noted that Hole 15 stood out as one he’ll remember. A 575-yard par 5, Hole 15 is named “Chasm” and provides one of the most beautiful views of the Blue Ridge Mountains, as well of the one of the most intimidating drives on the course, dropping more than 100 feet in elevation from tee to green.
The new award further underscores Ballyhack's rising reputation. Since its grand opening in July of 2009, Ballyhack has been recognized as the No. 3 Best New Private Course in America by GOLF Magazine, and among the Best New Courses by LINKS Magazine.

About Ballyhack Golf Club
Opened in the summer of 2009, Ballyhack Golf Club is an award-winning private, non-equity national destination golf retreat located within minutes of the famed Blue Ridge Parkway and the heart of Roanoke, Virginia.
The center point of Ballyhack is the 190-acre Ballyhack Golf Course designed by Lester George. Shaped to the natural flow of century-old farmland, the 7,294-yard, par-72 course blends the dramatic qualities of modern design with the traditions and style of Europe’s Old World links courses, featuring 50- to 70-foot elevation changes, fairways as wide as 150 yards and old-style, gouged- and roughed-out bunkers.
Membership at Ballyhack is extended by invitation. Additionally, a limited number of estate-sized homesites are offered at Ballyhack, for those who want to “live the experience” seasonally or year-round. To learn more, call (540) 427-1395, or Send me more info about Ballyhack.
