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.
Camp ReviewsSubmit a review
"Finally an instructor (Matt Burch) was able to explain to my son, Tyler, what he needed to do to get his drive up in the air and correctly aligned. Tyler is now consistently hitting the ball further than he ever has. His confidence soared. Thank you! All areas of his game improved as well; but, fixing the drive has renewed Tyler’s enthusiasm for golf. Food and and accommodations were a 10 out of 10 as well per Tyler."

"I really appreciated getting the swing analysis and notes for improvement at the end of camp. These are things the kids can work on but also we as parents are aware of what they need to work on."

Great time but it's expensive
"The experience for my son was very positive. However, as a parent, I feel it was overly expensive for what the campers received. Not sure I would pay that much again."
