By Hermitage Country Club,
Hermitage Country Club was established in 1900. The club now boasts exemplary facilities including 36 holes of championship golf, indoor and outdoor tennis, swimming and expansive dining outlets. Hermitage is a family-oriented club with an acute focus on providing the best possible experience day in and day out.
The Manakin Course underwent a conversion from cool season grasses to Latitude 36 bermudagrass fairways and rough in July 2019. 55 acres of short grass are all mowed together producing a unique and amazingly conditioned golf course. The Manakin greens remained A-1 bent grass. A bunker renovation using Capillary Concrete is currently ongoing.
The Sabot Golf Course consists mainly of Vamont bermudagrass. In conjunction with a full HDPE Rainbird irrigation installation, the greens are also being converted to Pure Eclipse bentgrass. A bunker renovation was just completed with Capillary concrete and Spruce Pine sand. The back nine greens and irrigation will follow the front nine in November 2022.
