Golden Horseshoe Golf Club offers three tournaments in March
Colonial Williamsburg’s Golden Horseshoe Golf Club invites golfers to enjoy three tournament opportunities this March. The month’s event schedule features the 2009 Spring Military Invitational, the debut of the March Madness tournament – for those who prefer sports drama on the putting green instead of the hardwood court – and the Future Collegiate World Tour tournament for junior golfers.
The following tournaments are scheduled for March at the Golden Horseshoe Golf Club:
The Golden Horseshoe Golf Club is a championship venue widely acclaimed for its two dynamic golf designs: the Gold Course, originally designed by the famed Robert Trent Jones Sr. and renovated by his son Rees Jones (6,817-yards from the championship tees), and the Green Course, a Rees Jones layout (7,120-yards from the tips). The Golden Horseshoe is part of Colonial Williamsburg’s Resort Collection and is located adjacent to Colonial Williamsburg’s Historic Area.
Established in 1926, the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation is the not-for-profit educational institution that preserves and operates the restored 18th-century Revolutionary capital of Virginia as the nation’s largest living history museum. The Colonial Williamsburg Company, a subsidiary of the Foundation, operates a Resort Collection with more than 1,000 guest rooms among five hotels including the landmark Williamsburg Inn, four historic dining taverns and six restaurants, and 66,000 square feet of conference space centered at the Williamsburg Lodge, as well as a new 20,000-square-foot spa, and the Golden Horseshoe golf courses. Each purchase of Colonial Williamsburg products and services supports the Foundation’s preservation, research, and educational programs.
Williamsburg is located in Virginia’s Tidewater region, 20 minutes from Newport News, within an hour’s drive of Richmond and Norfolk, and 150 miles south of Washington, D.C., off Interstate 64.
