Colonial Heritage Golf Club
The Arthur Hills designed golf course is located in the award winning community located in the north region of Williamsburg. The course is spread across a fantastic tract of land that envelops ravines, tall oaks and native grasses into each and every hole. The course conditions are very good since it was built in 2006 and the rough is over-seeded during the winter.
Home to three great Dan Maples designs, the facility encompasses the best of what the Tidewater region has to offer. The Marsh Hawk course takes you through elevation changes, around small ponds and across wonderful greens that were renovated in 2004. The Blackheath Course is the longest and toughest out of the three. The course has large bunkers, ample-sized greens and an island green finishing hole. The Blue Heron Course was also recently resurfaced (2013) with Champion Bermuda greens the Blue Heron meanders around marshes and through tall pine forests.
Golden Horseshoe Golf Club
Some courses have a richer history than others and that would be the case with the Golden Horseshoe. Located just off the main Duke of Gloucester Street in Colonial Williamsburg, the Robert Trent Jones designed Gold Course has been labeled as one of the best courses in the state of Virginia. Highlighted by four remarkable par threes, the course grants every player a chance to make their own history. The Green Course is just down the road and built by his son Rees Jones. The course has been the host to may tournaments and is a favorite of the resort guests since it is a little more forgiving than the Gold.

Across Kingsmill Resort there are plenty of places to find reminders of our nations beginning. From the docks sitting in the James River off the famed 17th hole or the Mill that is located off the 13th tee of the River Course, there are glimpses of our colonial history around every corner. The River Course is a Pete Dye design that went through a renovation in 2005 and is now the host of the LPGA each year for the Kingsmill Championship. Before the ladies it was the host to the PGA Tour for 22 years. The second course on site is the Arnold Palmer layout named the Plantation Course. The course takes you by the original Burwell Plantation ma historical landmark that remains intact. The course favors the left-to-right shot and presents players with a true test of accuracy and good putting.
Kiskiack Golf Club
