Williamsburg and Virginia Beach Make a Great Golf Vacation

Virginia is a popular golf destination and one of the best kept secrets for golf travel on the east coast. Featuring 16 Championship golf courses, Williamsburg, Virginia is rated as one of the top 25 golf destinations in the world. Just one hour south of Williamsburg is Virginia Beach, a perfect combination with Williamsburg to create a terrific golf vacation. It is hard to beat the quality of the golf courses in the two towns, given the number of courses rated 4 stars or higher by Golf Digest. Both Williamsburg and Virginia Beach are less than a day's drive from most of the Northeastern United States, so you can leave in the morning and be on the first tee shortly after lunch, making this a perfect location for a cost-effective weekend golf getaway.

Williamsburg's large number of high-quality courses more than compensates for the fact that its total number of courses is somewhat lower than other top-rated East Coast destinations that spend significantly more money marketing their regions as golf destinations, such as Ocean City, Pinehurst, and Myrtle Beach. Williamsburg offers plenty of top-notch courses and golf package pricing that can stack up with the best that all other East Coast golf destinations have to offer.

Williamsburg is headlined by Kingsmill Resort, which features the River Course, a current host to the LPGA with amazing views of the James River. The Gold course at Golden Horseshoe is a top 100 course in America located in the heart of Colonial Williamsburg. Are you familiar with Mike Strantz and his unique and unforgettable creations of Tobacco Road and Tot Hill Farm? Golfers looking for more value and great golf courses on their next golf vacation need look no further than the many other great golf courses in Williamsburg such as Royal New Kent, Stonehouse and Kiskiack. Love him or hate him, Mike Strantz-designed golf courses feature unique golf layouts that provide beautiful views with plenty of undulation and elevation changes. More great Williamsburg courses at a great value include Colonial Heritage, Viniterra Golf Club, the three courses at Ford's Colony, and Williamsburg National with its pair of courses. Williamsburg's status as a family vacation destination also allows golfers to enjoy an array of lodging options at a very good value, especially in the shoulder seasons. Whether you are looking to stay in 3 or 4-bedroom villas or a comfortable hotel with a complimentary breakfast, Williamsburg is a growing golf market, and those groups who decide to check out Williamsburg usually make it their annual golf trip destination year after year!

Virginia Beach, Virginia sits less than one hour southeast from Williamsburg down Interstate 64 and offers not only unique golf courses but scenic views of the coast. Furthermore, you will find one of the most beautiful golf courses you will ever play at Bay Creek in the Palmer course, with 4 holes that run along the Chesapeake Bay, 8 holes featuring a view of Plantation Creek winding in and out, and multiple other holes that are framed by large beach bunkers and sand dunes. If you want more enjoyment from Bay Creek, try the Nicklaus course, which provides another great experience with more breathtaking views of the Chesapeake Bay. Both Virginia Beach National and The Signature at West Neck should also be added to your play list while visiting Virginia Beach on your Virginia golf package. Virginia Beach features great views of the Atlantic Ocean, while there are many nearby oceanfront accommodations, endless dining options, the boardwalk, and the famous "Virginia Beach Strip."
