Great Golf at Great Value: Virginia Beach Entices Golfers of All Handicaps

Of course you’d expect to find soft, white sand in Virginia Beach. But, you might be surprised to find it amid lush, over-seeded fairways, rolling greens and perfectly manicured tee boxes rather than at the oceanfront.

Virginia Beach continues to offer golfers of all handicaps a surprise at every dogleg. The Virginia Beach Golf Association recently published its 2005 Vacation Guide, which offers golfers three round/two night packages starting as low as $219 per person. The association also offers promotions throughout the year, such as “four play for the price of three” deals.

Most commonly known as a family-friendly beach resort, Virginia Beach is quickly ascending the ranks of East Coast golf destinations, thanks to picturesque designs by renowned architects the likes of Rees Jones, Fred Couples and Arnold Palmer. Even more enticing than the spectacular golf is the exceptional value at which it comes. Seven courses – Bay Creek, Cypress Point, Hell’s Point, Heron Ridge, Honey Bee, Red Wing Lake, and Signature at West Neck – are participating in the golf packages, along with 14 Virginia Beach hotels.

Virginia Beach has emerged as a top golf destination due to the city’s proximity to over two-thirds of the U.S. population – a day’s drive or less – and its year-round mild climate.
