"Sweater Weather" Golf Package tees up for cool $99 at Golden Horseshoe Golf Club

In the wake of hot summer temperatures, the mere thought of playing golf in a sweater will come as welcome news to those who take advantage of Colonial Williamsburg’s winter golf package.

The historic property’s “Sweater Weather” discount package, available Dec. 1 through March 15, 2007, provides for golf at the award-winning Golden Horseshoe Golf Club as well as four nightly lodging options (rates per person, per night):

  • $99 for the Woodlands Hotel & Suites
  • $129 for Colonial Houses (26 restored and reconstructed 18th-century homes)
  • $159 for Providence Hall at 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 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 2006-07. In 2007 the Golden Horseshoe Golf Club will host the NCAA Division I Men’s Golf Championship.

    Other features of the “Sweater Weather” package include unlimited range balls, a 15 percent discount on sweaters in the Golden Horseshoe Golf Club’s pro shop and unlimited play on Spotswood, the resort’s nine-hole course, also designed by Jones Sr. The package has no minimum stay requirement.

    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. The Colonial Williamsburg Company, a subsidiary of the Foundation, operates more than 1,000 guest rooms, ten restaurants and 66,000 square feet of conference space in properties including the Williamsburg Inn, Williamsburg Lodge, Woodlands Hotel & Suites, 26 individual Colonial Houses, four Historic Area dining taverns, and the golf courses. Each purchase of Colonial Williamsburg products and services supports the Foundation’s preservation, research, and educational programs.
