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.

    Raspberry Falls Golf & Hunt Club offers the traditional links course reminiscent of those found in the British Isles, situated amidst Virginia's horse country. The club gets its name from the land's former use, a raspberry field.
    The 18-hole Blue Ridge Shadows Golf Club in Front Royal, VA is a public golf course that opened in 2007. Blue Ridge Shadows Golf Club measures 7315 yards from the longest tees.
    The 18-hole Kiln Creek Golf Club & Resort in Newport News, VA is a resort golf course that opened in 1990. Designed by Tom Clark, Kiln Creek Golf Club & Resort measures 6888 yards from the longest tees and has a slope rating of 130 and a 73.
  • 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.

    The Hyatt River Marsh Golf Club is Maryland's leading Eastern Shore golf course. The classic design incorporates challenging elements including sculpted bunkers and mature trees but balances them with wide, player-friendly fairways and inviting greens.
    The 18-hole Fairway Hills Golf Club in Columbia, MD is a public golf course that opened in 1995. Designed by Ron Prichard, Fairway Hills Golf Club measures 6158 yards from the longest tees and has a slope rating of 125 and a 70.
    River Run Golf Club in Ocean City is just minutes away from the beach. The golf course has different front and back nines that make for an interesting round. This Gary Player design starts out across a wide-open landscape before moving on to more tree-lined terrain on the backside. The player-friendly layout is gentle enough for beginners with medium-sized greens that aren't especially difficult and generous fairways that offer plenty of room.
  • 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.
    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.
    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.
