The Wintergreen Resort
Wintergreen Resort, the Mid-Atlantic's most exciting year-round playground, is a golfer's haven. Two courses. Two completely different designs. Two invigorating experiences. All in one stunning Virginia golf resort. The mountaintop Devils Knob Golf Course is, well, a cool place that is fun to play and is perennially ranked as one of Virginia's best courses, its panoramic views become a visual smorgasbord of color in the fall. Down in the historic Rockfish Valley, Stoney Creek Golf Course flows through a setting that is as relaxing as it is challenging. World-renowned golf architect Rees Jones designed a trio of nines that blend seamlessly into the natural surroundings.

Great time but it's expensive
