Fall Savings At Kingsmill Resort in Virginia


‘You’re Away’: So Maybe You Should Get Closer to the Green and Save Some Green

WILLIAMSBURG, Va. – September 24, 2015 – Golf is not like riding a bike; you have to keep at it to do it well. Shorter days and cooler weather are not excuses. So if you don’t like being told you’re away,” it’s time to get closer to the greens at Kingsmill Resort in Williamsburg, Virginia.

While there are many golf courses in the United States, few are on former battlefields and sacred ground. At Kingsmill Resort, the only AAA Four Diamond condominium resort in historic Williamsburg, golfers literally walk in the footsteps of the Jamestown settlers and soldiers of the American Revolution and Civil War. The grounds are also home to the LPGA Kingsmill Championship held in May.

Not only is fall and early winter weather ideal for golf at Kingsmill, but the resort is also tailored for families, friends and foursomes traveling together with its new four-bedroom cottages on the James River, as well as one- to three-bedroom condominiums with kitchens and spacious living areas.

Right now, Kingsmill is offering a number of packages for golfers of all ages and skill levels, including children (Kingsmill is a family-friendly golf resort).

For starters, the Unlimited Golf Package offers the best of Kingsmill’s golf experience starting at $209 per person per night based on double occupancy for two nights and includes unlimited rounds of golf on the River and Plantation courses, breakfast, use of a golf cart, complimentary transportation to local attractions, accommodations and full resort access.

The Signature Golf Package offers one night at $189 per person based on double occupancy, and golfers are treated to a breakfast buffet and 18 holes of golf on the River or Plantation courses. If you are bringing an army of four, sign up for the Foursomes Golf Package. Accommodations in a three-bedroom condo for two nights, limitless rounds of golf – with cart – on the River and Plantation courses, and complimentary use of the driving range, fitness center and pools are included for a starting rate of $510 per person.

Golfers who need R&R after a day on the course may opt to take advantage of Kingsmill’s riverfront location and amenities: a brand new fitness center and spa, on-site restaurants, tennis courts, fishing, and indoor/outdoor pools.

Colonial Williamsburg Holds Golf And Beer Event

WILLIAMSBURG, Va. (May 19, 2015) – Following its sold-out April 18 debut, Beers in the ’Burg returns to Chowning’s Tavern Memorial Day weekend, Saturday, May 23, with the taste of 10 selections from Devils Backbone Brewing Company.

The adjacent Green Course, designed by his son Rees Jones 25 years ago, represent the first father-son layout in the country.
