Set on 500 acres, Birdwood is a golf course rich in history. Its verdant hills were part of a 1739 "upland wilderness" land patent, one of the earliest in the colony. The University of Virginia acquired the property in 1974, enlisting architect Lindsay Ervin in 1984 to transform Birdwood into the award-winning golf course it is today. With an emphasis on environmental stewardship, Birdwood Golf Course is a certified member of the Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary Program, created and administered by Audubon International. Under the program we are focused on best management practices in environmental planning, wildlife and habitat management, chemical-use reduction and safety, water conservation and outreach and education. Home to the University of Virginia's men and women's golf teams, Birdwood reigns as one of the region's finest golf courses.
The friendly team at the Birdwood Golf Course is eager to make your day on the golf course a spectacular one. If you are seeking a way for your friends, colleagues or employees to gather together and experience a relaxed camaraderie, we highly recommend our planning services to help you organize a group outing unlike any other.
