KemperSports to manage Golden Horseshoe GC in Williamsburg

KemperSports will take over management of Golden Horseshoe Golf Club in historic Williamsburg, Virgina. The facility has three courses — the Gold Course, the Green Course and a nine-hole Spotswood short course.

The Gold Course is one of the most highly-touted golf courses in the region, including recognition by Golf Digest as No. 79 on its list of America’s 100 Greatest Public Courses while GOLF Magazine ranks it as No. 55 on its recent list of the Top 100 Courses You Can Play. 

It was designed in 1963 by Robert Trent Jones, Sr. and reopened July 1 following a complete renovation by Jones’ son, Rees Jones. The restoration included new greens, fairways, rough and bunkers.

The Green Course is a 1991 Rees Jones-design carved from the same rolling terrain as the Gold Course, offering a strong option for avid golfers and members with wider fairways, larger and more undulated greens, and more length on the par-72, 7,120-yard layout.

The Spotswood Course was built in 1949 as the original course alongside The Williamsburg Inn. The course is meant to be played twice from each set of tees for an 18-hole routing.

“The Colonial Williamsburg Foundation is excited about partnering with KemperSports to bring new and larger audiences to enjoy the great golf experience at The Golden Horseshoe, while maintaining our traditional commitment to an outstanding personalized guest experience,” said Colonial Williamsburg President & CEO Mitchell B. Reiss.
