Nestled along the riverbanks of the historic New River and only minutes from the university, the River Course weaves the elegance and romance of a Blue Ridge Mountain setting and the cutting edge style and sophistication of today. A stunning new $5.5 million clubhouse offers the ideal venue for small to moderate size weddings, receptions, and other festivities. The graciously appointed banquet/reception area opens to an incredible elevated patio overlooking the river, the golf course and the mountains lending a picture-perfect backdrop for your photos and memories you will cherish. For couples planning an outdoor ceremony, ‘The Lawn’, adjacent to the clubhouse, offers the same amazing view. The unique setting and the amenities will make the wedding you have always dreamed of …come true.
Extend your wedding festivities in one central location into a multi-day event. Our facilities are perfect for a groomsman golf outing, a rehearsal dinner, bridal shower, brides maid luncheon and bachelor or bachelorette parties. From the camaraderie of a golf outing to a casual dining experience on the patio or in the Hackin’ Hokies Grille to a black-tie banquet – you can do it all at “The River”. The convenience of hosting multiple events in one location simplifies instructions for out of town guests and our staff will make you and your guests feel welcome.
Unlike other area banquet facilities, the River Course gives you the option to use Bull & Bones at The River, the on-site restaurant and caterer, or select another caterer from our approved list. Our list includes caterers who are as dedicated as we are to insure you have an event to remember. If you choose to use Bull & Bones at The River’s catering team you may choose from their established menu or design your own custom menu which can include vegetarian and non-vegetarian selections. Alcoholic beverage service for any function must be provided by Bull & Bones as they have the license for the entire River Course property. They will work with you and your chosen caterer to serve your guests alcoholic beverages. For rates, availability, and other information please contact Stephanie Roberts, Business Manager and Event Coordinator, at (540) 633-1807 or 1-888 Pete Dye (1-888-738-3393).
