  • Ford's Colony - Williamsburg

In the year 1606 King James I sent the first colonist to Virginia, and the game of golf followed soon thereafter. But it was another 300 years later before Dan Maples built a course fit for a king, right here at Ford's Colony.

Now Ford's Colony boasts 54 holes of this civilized pastime. Each one, designed with a solid appreciation of all levels of play. Designer Dan Maples, recipient of Golf Digest's highest award for course design, states: "Ford's Colony is truly a player's course. Built with championship qualities, it's capable of challenging the skills of any pro without taking away from an amateur's enjoyment. Not many courses offer this flexibility."

Equipment: With 54 holes and a magnificent dining room, there is soemthing for everyone at this country club. There is also a Marriott on the premises.
