The Foundry Golf Club rests on one of the most naturally stunning properties in Virginia. The rolling terrain, native vegetation, and scattered rock outcroppings, combine with the meandering banks of Fine Creek to showcase the beautiful Piedmont countryside.
This land was once valued by the Monacan Indians for its fertile soils and access to the James River. The Monacans were a part of the Catawba tribe of the Sioux and unlike the more friendly Powhatan, they resisted the colonization of the Virginia countryside vehemently. As more settlers arrived in the Piedmont, however the Monacans were forced to move west. After years of conflict they finally established a home near Bear Mountain in resent Amherst County. These Native Americans are most famously know for there unique burial mounds found throughout the region. They however, were also great innovators, mining copper and domesticating many plants.
The breathtaking setting of the old Foundry buildings on Fine Creek became the focus of potential for the new golf club. A problem arose however, because the Binford property was too small for the new layout. The original timber parcel was nearby but a large section of land separated the two tracts. Through negotiations and with time the group, soon to be known as the Founders, acquired the missing section of land and now held over 1600 acres for the new golf club.
The Foundry Golf Club now had a home. It would be centered around a single membership structure with a President acting as the sole governing force. The design and atmosphere of the club would provide the purest golf experience with an old Virginian touch and without the detractions of other country club style amenities.
