    Virginia Golf: The Blue Ridge to Wine Country

    by Casey | Posted on May 3rd, 2011

    There are numerous reasons to tee off in Virginia.

    1. The beautiful scenery.
    2. The moderate temperatures.
    3. The beautiful scenery.
    4. Public courses that rival the private ones.

    Get away from DC – even if it’s just an hour – to Blue Ridge Shadows. It was ranked as the #3 “Best Course You Can Play” by Golfweek Magazine in 2009. Located in Front Royal, it does, in fact, sit in the shadows of the Blue Ridge Mountains, and boasts 18 holes designed by Tom Clark.

    Just outside Charlottesville is the stunning 600-acre Keswick Hall that includes an 18-hole Arnold Palmer Signature Course that is as challenging as it is historically beautiful. In the midst of Thomas Jefferson’s Monticello, the course blends well – almost seamlessly. If you’re looking for the promise of an easy course, move on. The only promise you’re getting out of Keswick Hall is that you will “use all the clubs in your bag.”

    Move from the shadows of the Blue Ridge Mountains to perch atop them when you play The Highland Course at Primland Resort in Meadows of Dan. Golfweek Magazine called it one of the top 25 “Best Resort Courses in the U.S.” The course meanders across ridge tops, making each swing a rush of sheer adrenaline. A more spectacular mountaintop course you will not find.

    Experience many awesome opportunities in Loudoun County. There you will find quite a selection of courses, not to mention great wineries as you hop around.
