    The Old Dominion has some of the country’s best classic designs and modern layouts. It has one of the world’s great mountain courses (the Cascades Course at The Omni Homestead Resort) and one of the world’s great golf destinations (Williamsburg, ranked No. 24 in the world by Golf Digest). Most of the great architects have worked a plot or two of Virginia soil.

    You can find the modern wonder of the Pete Dye designed Full Cry at Keswick Hall and River Course at Kingsmill Resort, or the classic touch of Robert Trent Jones at the GoldenHorseshoe Golf Club. Golf is played in Virginia’s great metropolises, its wonderfully quaint small towns and its scenic rural areas. Wherever you are in the Old Dominion, it’s a sure bet you’re just a few miles from a great golf experience. Plus, there is plenty to do beyond the course.

    Virginia is home to the world’s longest resort beach (28 miles of Virginia Beach shoreline), the world’s largest shipbuilding city (Newport News), the Clam Capital of the World (Chincoteague), the Apple Capital of the World (Winchester), and Virginia is now also known as the Oyster Capital of the East Coast.

    All of this lays the framework for the most diverse menu of golf courses any state on the East Coast offers. No state can match Virginia for quality and diversity, and one needs to look no further than the top of the list of the state’s 220 public courses.* The Highlands Course at Primland Resort and the Cascades Course at The Homestead are two of the nation’s finest mountain courses. The Jack Nicklaus Course and Arnold Palmer Course at Bay Creek Resort are two magnificent sea level courses. The Golden Horseshoe Golf Club’s classic Gold Course in Williamsburg is one of the nation’s finest resort courses. Laurel Hill in Lorton is one of the nation’s best municipal courses. Golf magazines have ranked Williamsburg and the Virginia mountains among the 50 best golf destinations in the world.

    Virginia is definitely for golf lovers.
