"Sweater Weather" golf package tees up for a cool $99 at the Golden Horseshoe Golf Club

The “No Jackets Required” sign has been posted at the Golden Horseshoe Golf Club at Virginia’s historic Colonial Williamsburg.

Golfer-friendly weather, a year-round complement to the resort’s two award-winning golf courses, means that argyle sweaters are both a stylish fashion statement and fit perfectly with the Golden Horseshoe’s “Sweater Weather” discount packages.

So, pull out the cardigans, pullovers, and vests, and take advantage of an incredible offer that includes accommodations at one of five Colonial Williamsburg Hotels, one round of golf on the nationally acclaimed Gold or Green Courses and unlimited range balls.
If you need a new sweater, the package also includes a 15 percent discount on logo sweaters.

Talk about the perfect fit!

Available through March 17, 2005, the new “Sweater Weather” package offers several options for accommodations priced per, person per night:

  • $99 for the Woodlands Hotel & Suites,
  • $129 for Colonial Houses (25 restored and reconstructed 18th-century homes)
  • $159 for the Providence Hall Wings of the Williamsburg Inn
  • $219 for a deluxe room at the Williamsburg Inn’s historic main building.

    The Golden Horseshoe Golf Club ( offers a pair of 18-hole gems: 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 laytout (7,120-yards from the tips) selected by Golf Digest as one of its five best new resort courses.

    The Golden Horseshoe Golf Club recently was named a “Gold Medalist” in GOLF Magazine’s bi-annual ranking of golf resorts in the U.S. – a considerable honor since only 25 golf resorts in the nation received this recognition. The facility also was recognized as a Golf Digest Five Star Course and one of the magazine’s “Best Places to Play.”

    The nine-hole Spotswood Course, also designed by the late Robert Trent Jones Sr., rounds out the Golden Horseshoe’s magnificent golf setting.
