LPGA Kingsmill Championship
Virginia Green is the Commonwealth of Virginia’s campaign to promote environmentally-friendly practices in all aspects of Virginia’s tourism industry. Virginia Green has established "core activities" specific to each sector of tourism, and these practices are considered the required minimum for participation in the program. However, Virginia Green encourages its participants to reduce their environmental impacts in all aspects of their operations, and this profile provides a full list of all their “green” activities. These are the activities that guests / customers can expect to find when they visit this facility.
LPGA Kingsmill Championship
The Kingsmill Championship is an LPGA golf tournament that brings many of the best female players from around the world to Williamsburg, Virginia.
A Landfill Free Event is a commitment to move away from our dependence on landfills and to keep the green in golf.
We are also an Audubon Certified Golf Course; Kingsmill is a member of Virginia Green, ISO 14001 Certified, IACC Green Star Gold Certified, and a Virginia Clean Marina.
We have a pastry kitchen that creates the breads and pastries for our Mill Café. Our golf courses are Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary Certified. We use BMP ponds to irrigate our grounds and golf courses. Most of the products in our Spa are organic or natural. We have converted over 75% of the Resort to energy efficient lamps.
