Assistant Golf Professional Chandler Marshall joins Primland after previously serving as assistant professional at Mount Vernon Country Club in Alexandria, Virginia, for three seasons. Marshall started playing golf at the age of four and was taught the game by his dad, Mark Marshall, a Master PGA Professional.

The Highland Course at Primland, a flagship U.S. design by world renowned architect Donald Steel, is a centerpiece of the Primland guest experience. The course is carved from the natural landscape of the Blue Ridge Mountains leaving stunning views eye-level with its ridge tops and winding into its many valleys. A course with forgiving landing areas, Steel’s British roots transfer to the Highland Course with links-style features implemented throughout one of the best mountain layouts in golf. Ranked by Golfweek, Golf Digest and GOLF Magazine, The Highland Course is regarded as one of the top courses you can play in North America.
