CW's Golden Horseshoe Golf Club shows appreciation to military with special rates
Colonial Williamsburg’s Golden Horseshoe Golf Club continues its Military Appreciation Golf Special to honor our country’s service men and women.

Price per person includes 18 holes of golf, cart and green fees. The special is valid for up to four people, and is not available to groups. Tee times may be booked up to five days in advance subject to availability and course operating schedule. Call 1-800-648-6653 or 757-220-7696 for tee times or to inquire about special rates for the Gold Course.
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). GOLF magazine, in its September 2006 issue, ranked the Gold Course No. 48 on its “Top 100 Courses You Can Play” for 2006-2007.
The Golden Horseshoe is part of Colonial Williamsburg’s Resort Collection. The Green Course is located at 520 S. England St. in Williamsburg.
