Mid Atlantic Golf Destinations

  • Virginia

    From Virginia Beach on the Atlantic to the Blue Ridge Mountains and the Washington D.C. area, the state of Virginia -- or Commonwealth of Virginia as it's officially called -- offers a wide variety of golf over a geographically diverse area.

    Situated in the foothills of Bull Run Mountain, Bull Run Golf Club has a beautiful woodland setting that is conveniently located just minutes from many historic Civil War sites. The course plays through mature forests and across lush, grassy meadows. There are also several ponds that come into play throughout.
    Situated between Richmond and Williamsburg, the Club at Viniterra sprawls across abundantly wooded hills. There is no shortage of elevation changes on this Rees Jones and Greg Muirhead-designed golf course. There is a difference of as much as 70 feet from the tee to the green on most of the holes. When combined with the mature trees, the result is a tough layout that demands accuracy.
    Independence Golf Club in Midlothian is situated on the edge of the Piedmont region, routed through the area’s mature woodlands and natural wetlands. Tom Fazio designed the course; it's his only daily-fee course design in Virginia. The challenging layout features narrow fairways lined with high, thick rough areas.
  • Maryland

    Maryland is a small state compared to neighboring Pennsylvania and Virginia, but with more than 200 golf courses -- one for approximately every 43 square miles of land -- a golfer is never far from a fairway.

  • Delaware

    When it comes to golf, Delaware has become the little state that could, and it offers a surprisingly wide variety of off-course attractions.

    Designed by Arthur Hills, White Clay Creek Country Club in Wilmington, Del., features 7,007 yards of golf from the longest tees. The par-72 championship golf course has water coming into play on all 18 holes.
    Garrisons Lake Golf Club, nine miles north of Dover, is a historic play centrally located to all parts of Delaware. The course is nature friendly: with tree-lined fairways and large, well bunkered greens throughout. The par-72, 7,060-yard course was recently renovated and improved.
    Deerfield Golf Club in Newark, Del., is a 145-acre public course, billed as a “natural treasure.” The 18-hole championship course gets the moniker thanks to its surroundings -- the ancient forest of White Clay Creek State Park.
