Pete Dye River Course of Virginia Tech, originally name TheRiver Course At Heron's Landing, is a Semi-Private, 18 hole golf course located in Radford, Virginia. The course is a daily fee facility open to the public and serves as the home for Virginia Tech's golf team.
Pete Dye River Course of Virginia Tech is bisected by a 70' rock cliff, which created the opportunity to build two distinct but complimentary nine-hole loops which start and finish adjacent to the club area. The linear nature of these two nines has allowed 14 of the 18 holes to have views to the river. Eight of these play directly to the river's edge.
Originally designed by Daniel J. Schlegal of Ault and Clark Associates. The River has been newly renovated by world-renowned architect Pete Dye. After two years of moving 400,000 cubic yards of earth and constructing 18 new greens... The River reopened on August 21st, 2005.
The new layout winds along 2.5 miles of the scenic and historic New River and many holes have been endeared with its presence. Panoramic views are the norm and the passing of an occasional train enhances the beauty of the surroundings.

I am currently a student at Virginia Tech i can get on this wonderful course for 32 dollars with a cart on any weekday. The course is always in great shape and a joy to play. The holes on the river are outstanding. Depending on if you play from the tips it can be a very long and challenging course to play. Plenty of oportunities to go into water, and most greens are elevated and protected by bunkers. I would greatly encourage people to try this course
