    Here's a view of Damascus Old Mill #Inn. Since 1910 the Old Mill has stood along the South Fork #River, serving the community of Damascus as a grist/saw mill until 1965. Now you can rent rooms overlooking the river and this beautiful man-made #waterfall stretching across the South Fork. The river (and falls) are four to five times wider than what you see here. It's breathtaking to stand in the middle of the riverbed like this with the water roaring past. #LoveVa #Virginia #sunset #swva #southforkriver #vaoutdoors #vais4lovers

    Olde Mill Green at Dusk

    So you just hit that one glorious tee shot in your round – the proverbial golf shot that keeps you coming back to the game (despite the frustrating 97 you will shoot). How much better will that shot be if it heads off into the sunset on a beautifully scenic course? One where you can spend as much time admiring the landscape and natural beauty around you as you do your shots (or much more, depending on your game). If the pollen is not your enemy, this time of year is ideal to enjoy a cool, comfortable round of golf among the Azaleas and Virginia Dogwoods.

    Check out some of the great views you might see around the Commonwealth:

    Old Hickory

    Old Hickory Golf Club in Woodbridge is a great course for players of all levels. Check out the unique “19th” hole, the challenge hole that has nothing to do with the clubhouse watering hole, but might help settle a score!

     

    Riverfront Golf Course

    Riverfront is a semi-private course situated on the banks of the Nansemond River in Suffolk. Riverfront has an old-style layout that winds its way through the riverfront acreage, tidal marshes, huge oaks and pines, and vast rolling farmland.

     

    Raspberry Falls Golf Club

    Raspberry Falls in Leesburg, is an upscale, daily-fee golf course that holds the distinction of being Virginia’s only Gary Player Signature Design. The most dramatic and formidable feature of Raspberry Falls is its Scottish style stacked-sod bunkers.

     

    Olde Mill Golf Resort

    Olde Mill Golf Resort in Laurel Fork is one of the state’s most scenic mountain courses, just minutes from the Blue Ridge Parkway.

     

    The Golden Horseshoe is one of Virginia's most famous golf clubs. Two courses created by Robert Trent Jones Sr and Rees Jones offer a classic and beautiful challenge.

    Blue Ridge Shadows Golf Club

    Blue Ridge Shadows Golf Club is a championship eighteen hole golf course nestled in the tranquility of Virginia’s historic Shenandoah Valley. Blue Ridge was even ranked #4 Best Courses you can play in Virginia by Golfweek Magazine.

     

    The Omni Homestead Resort

    Another example of great Virginia mountain golf, the Cascades courses at the Omni Homestead in Hot Springs are where golf legend Sam Snead began his career.
