Course Overview:
1000 South England Circle, Williamsburg, Virginia  23185
Par: 72  Yardage: 7120  Slope: 134  Rating: 75.1


Designed by “The Open Doctor” Rees Jones, Jones Sr.’s son, and opened in 1991, the Green Course celebrates its 20th anniversary in 2011. The layout is carved from the same terrain as the Gold Course and is more typical of contemporary trends in golf course architecture. It also stands out as the first father-son tandem of side-by-side layouts.  The Green Course at Golden Horseshoe in Williamsburg, Virginia is a challenging layout with strategically placed hazards and mounding around the greens.  The course is a brilliant design certified as an Audubon Sanctuary that has been carved from a thick forest to create a shotmaker's course.  The course has no houses along the course and features water on 6 of the 18 holes.  The Green Course hosted the 2004 Amateur Championship in which Michelle Wie was defeated by Ya-Ni Tseng on the 18th hole.
