Mid Atlantic Golf Destinations

  • 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.
  • 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.

    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.
    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.
    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.
  • 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 18-hole Maryland National Golf Club in Middletown, MD is a semi-private golf course that opened in 2002. Designed by Arthur Hills, Maryland National Golf Club measures 6811 yards from the longest tees and has a slope rating of 139 and a 73.
