THE GREEN COURSE AT GOLDEN HORSESHOE GOLF CLUB

CHALLENGE YOURSELF ON ONE OF AMERICA’S BEST MODERN COURSES

Opened in 1991, Rees Jones drew inspiration from his father Robert Trent Jones Sr.’s iconic Gold Course to create the acclaimed Green Course in Colonial Williamsburg. Carved from the same beautiful parkland terrain, the Green Course is longer than Gold but also more forgiving—creating an entertaining challenge for golfers of every skill level.
