About Birdwood Golf Course
Set on 500 acres at the foot of the Blue Ridge Mountains, 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.

Spectacular Blue Ridge views, invigorating vistas, and 18 holes of challenging golf… It is easy to see why Birdwood Golf Course at Boar's Head is a highly acclaimed course, with recent accolades including the prestigious 4 ½-star ranking among Golf Digest's 'Best Places to Play.'

This year’s VEDA Golf Tournament will use a Shamble Format where each team chooses the best drive for their foursome; each player plays their own ball; and the team score is derived from the combination of the two lowest scores in the foursome.
