If you imagine playing golf in cool crisp mountain air in the middle of summer, or walking with your clubs over easy rolling picturesque hills, look no further. We have it all here in Central Virginia!

Golf magazines have ranked Williamsburg and the Virginia mountains among the 50 best golf destinations in the world. From Virginia's beaches to the Allegany Mountain tops, you will encounter a diverse menu of golf courses in the state's list of 220 public courses.

Central Virginia has some of the country's best classic designs and modern layouts. One of Virginia's great mountain courses is 40 miles west of Charlottesville, The Cascades Course at the Omni Homestead Resort in Hot Springs.  The Cascades is regarded as one of the finest mountain golf course destinations in the country and offers challenging links set against the backdrop of Virginia's breathtaking Allegheny Mountains.  American professional golfer and one of the top players in the world for four decades, Sam Snead,  launched his career on this well known Virginia mountain golf course. 

A few minutes east Charlottesville is Keswick Hall's Full Cry, a modern wonder designed by golf course designer, Pete Dye. Full Cry combines modern golf course architecture and the bucolic hunt country of Virginia. The brand new 18 traverses the scenic rolling terrain and appeals to every level of golfer. 

One of the area's most enjoyable courses just 20 minutes east of Charlottesville, is Spring Creek Golf Club, rated by Golf Week as the "Top Ranked Residential Public Course in Virginia."

Golf is played throughout Virginia's scenic rural areas and quaint towns and no matter where you find yourself, it's a sure bet you're just a few miles from a great golf experience. Plus, there is plenty to do beyond the course. Be sure to ask your Montague Miller REALTOR® where to start!
