Stay & Play on Distinctive Layouts at Wintergreen Resort

WINTERGREEN, Va. (April 25, 2017) — Two distinctly different golf experiences at Wintergreen Resort make the destination’s popular “Stay & Play” golf package the best reason to pack the clubs and visit Virginia’s Blue Ridge Mountains this summer and fall.

Featuring Devils Knob Golf Course on the mountaintop and Stoney Creek Golf Course down in the Rockfish Valley, guests continue to take advantage of the flexible “Stay & Play” options that extend for as many nights – and rounds of golf – as desired.

Each package includes 18 holes daily and choice of available accommodations. Guests can choose from studio suites and villa-style condominiums to nine-bedroom homes with fully equipped kitchens, fireplaces and deck.

The Stay & Play” golf package starts at only $79 per person, per night, which makes it one of the best deals in the Mid-Atlantic. All Wintergreen golf packages include:

  • Advanced tee times at time of reservation
  • Unlimited use of practice facilities
  • Club storage and locker room service
  • Shared golf cart for each round
  • Re-play round on the same course for $25 per player, must be booked on day of play
  • No surcharges to play Devils Knob Golf Course
  • Unlimited Aquatics & Fitness Center access

Devils Knob Golf Course, reserved expressly for Wintergreen Resort guests and Devils Knob members, is perched at an elevation of 3,850 feet. While the cool, high-altitude mountain air is a refreshing change during the summer season, the unique shot values and classic challenges of Devils Knob remain the same, time after time. Virginia’s highest golf course, Devils Knob also provides dramatic, 50-mile views of the mountain range, as well as Shenandoah and Rockfish valleys.
Stoney Creek Golf Course is a 27-hole Rees Jones-design blended gracefully into the rolling landscape of the Rockfish Valley. With majestic mountain range as backdrop, the traditional design incorporates natural springs and native habitat, including Lake Monocan, with all three nines offering generous landing areas, few forced carries and large, deceptively contoured greens. Stoney Creek’s combination of nines offers an invigorating variety of golf year-round, for the serious competitor and vacation golfer alike.

Wintergreen is the perfect destination for active travelers and families. In addition to golf, the resort offers a U.S. Top 50 tennis complex and miles of hiking and biking trails, as well as the rejuvenating full-service Spa at Wintergreen. Summer is an ideal time to explore nearby wineries, breweries, and apple cideries or stop by one of the working farms and orchards that dot the surrounding countryside.
