Located in historic Appomattox County, Falling River Golf Club opened 1965. It was designed with nine holes and later added nine holes to complete the course as designed. It quickly became a favorite for golfers of Appomattox and all over central and southwest Virginia. Falling River is a private club with over 350 members. Our facility is one of the best values in Virginia. Our 18 hole course has been the host of many tournaments. Our Banquet Hall facility accommodates many socials, wedding parties, and tournament events and is available for rental by contacting our Pro Shop for rate and availability.
With gently rolling hills and undulating greens, the course is challenging but fair. Falling River is always in great condition. The bent grass greens are true and moderately quick. Bent grass fairways will soon give way to Bermuda grass fairways. Falling River has many long range projects that will showcase the course even more. The official yardage is 6471 (Blue), 6133 (White/Regular), 5410 (Seniors), and 4689 (Ladies). There are 2 main lakes and 5 small ponds throughout the course. The view of our course is beautiful from many of the tee boxes.
Falling River has hosted City tournaments, Hall of Fame, YMCA, and Williams’s events. Numerous charity and corporate events throughout the year are scheduled.
Play is private with guests allowed with members and tournaments. Our seniors are very active with special groups and times. Our seniors are scheduled to play other clubs on Thursdays, and our ladies play their matches on Mondays.
