    Hanover County Country Club

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Hanover Country Club is located 4 miles (6.4 km.) west of downtown. The club is in the middle of a private neighbourhood, the hills, and the South Anna River. I know what you're thinking: the thought of me within 50 miles (80 km.) of a country club is unthinkable and not just because I don't play golf well. I have been here a couple of times for the Reagan Day Dinner and other such fund-raisers. So, I'm most familiar with their dining rooms for private functions. They offer 18 holes of golf, a practice facility, a driving range, and a pro shop. Besides golf, they have private tennis courts and an Olympic-size swimming pools.

    Address: 14314 Country Club Drive, Ashland, VA 23005

    Directions: from Ashland- Go 4.8 miles (7.7 km.), past Patrick Henry High School on the left, to the entrance to Country Club Hills on the right. Stay left on Country Club Drive to clubhouse atop the hill.

    Randolph-Macon athletics

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Yellow Jackets is the nickname for Ralph-Macon College's athletic programme. In football, they have won the Old Dominion Athletic Conference title eight times. For more than a century, Randolph-Macon has met the Tigers of Hampden-Sydney College in the oldest small college football rivalry in the South, traditionally known as The Game. For a week before the big game, the entire Randolph-Macon and Ashland community comes together in celebration and support of the Yellow Jackets. Christian and I passed by Day Field on as they were putting down chalk boundaries in the turf in preparation for a big game the following day against Johns Hopkins University. Sadly, Christian and I still had a lot left to do so we missed the game. The home team would go on to lose 14-21.
