Virginia About Virginia


A few decades after written records account for the first golf being played at the Old Course in St. Andrews, Scotland, settlers discovered Jamestown. The Virginia colony was founded on May 14, 1607 and is regarded as the first settlement in what is now the United States.

While golf became an institution in Scotland by the late 1800s when the first Open Championships were contested, Virginia is still fighting to make a name for itself as a top-notch golf destination. But those who have sampled the stunning layouts in the shadows of the Blue Ridge Mountains and the city skyline in Richmond will tell you that Virginia isn’t just for lovers anymore.

Great golf can be found from the Atlantic Ocean (Virginia Beach) to the picturesque Blue Ridge Mountains (Roanoke) and everywhere in between. Richmond is home to some of the state’s most luxurious private courses, as well as a host of upscale daily-fee facilities.

Historic Williamsburg features a high concentration of quality courses; there are at least 15 courses rated 4 Stars or better by Golf Digest, including the storied Kingsmill Resort that has hosted numerous professional tournaments.

There are so many unique places to play and visit that you can’t pick just one. Let our site serve as the ultimate resource for planning a golf trip to Virginia.
