“We are honored that Full Cry continues to move up so dramatically in the rankings of the major golf publications,” says Robert and Molly Hardie, owners of Keswick Hall & Golf Club. “Our goal to create one of the premier golf courses in the U.S. has been extremely successful and provides our members and guests a truly special place to play the game they love.”

The world-class resort just announced a major renovation of its Forbes Five-Star 48-room hotel will begin in early 2018. During the renovation Full Cry will remain open, as will the golf clubhouse with its Club Grill restaurant, spa, fitness center, driving range and members’ pool. Also unaffected will be the property’s full-service pavilion pool and tennis facilities. The hotel is scheduled to reopen in Spring 2019.
