Overview

Just as Colonial Williamsburg brings America’s revolutionary history to life, The Golden Horseshoe Golf Club honors the classic traditions of the game—while still creating an entertaining challenge for today’s player. Designed by the father-and-son team of Robert Trent Jones Sr. and Rees Jones, experience 45 walkable holes over three courses, surrounded by mature woodlands and free from neighboring real estate. Get in touch with nature, focus on your game, and get back to the true essence of golf in historic Colonial Williamsburg. Toast to a day spent on the course at one of several on-site restaurants. Take a short stroll and find yourself in the heart of Colonial Williamsburg. From dining and hotel options, to spa services and living history exhibits, it’s easy to turn a golf getaway into an incredible vacation experience that will keep you coming back year after year.

Played 9 holes here today while vacationing in Williamsburg. The course is lovely and staff are friendly. The pro shop carries a nice selection of anything and everything you need to play. I highly recommend.

The club house restaurant at Golden Horseshoe Golf Club is a favorite place to have lunch, especially when the weather is right for dining on the outside terrace overlooking the golf course behind the Williamsburg Inn.
