irst tee jitters. Hacking at a little white ball,cursing after you shank it in the pond and then you
hole it from 35 feet for par. It’s 7 a.m. and you
drove all night. All for this? You betcha!Highlighted by the River Course at Kingsmill,

Kingsmill’s redesign was
overseen by world-renowned coursearchitect Pete Dye in2004. Adjacent to the James River, the coursemeasures nearly 6,900yards from the gold teesproviding a remarkable golf experience.Narrow fairways and unforgiving bunkers are coupled with tree-lined fairways to
make Marsh Hawk at Ford’s Colony one of the best “true golf tests” in Williamsburg.
The par-72 course includes some of the easiest par-
3’s in Williamsburg and the
elevation changes provide visual illusions that will challenge the best.The Gold Course at the Golden Horseshoe Golf Club (Colonial Williamsburg) isarguably the most beautiful golf display in the region. Voted by Golf Magazine as
among the “Top 100 places you can play,” the par
71 layout also received “4 1/2stars” by Golf Digest. Tucked away in rolling
woodlands, the Gold Course invites its visitorsto experience dramatic scenery that willenhance any golf outing.***
