Williamsburg is a lot more than just one of the most historic destinations in the Commonwealth of Virginia.  This southeastern Virginia city is home to numerous public golf courses, some of which are celebrity-designed and winners of awards from major golfing-oriented publications.  Aside from the glamor courses, Williamsburg also offers charter bus golfers a choice of public courses, and a great way of traveling to Virginia and having a game of golf is with a bus, charter bus, coach bus, party bus, mini bus, passenger coach or school bus chartered from Bus Charter Virginia.

Williamsburg National Golf Club features two 18-hole championship golf courses designed by Jack Nicklaus and Tom Clark.  Golf Digest magazine awarded the Nicklaus-designed Jamestown course with four stars; the par-72 course has also hosted the Michelob Championship on the PGA Tour on three occasions.  Golf Digest also once named the Jamestown course, which is playable along 7,000 yards of greenery, as one of the 10 best places to play in Virginia.  Williamsburg National Golf Club offers its charter bus visitors a selection of private lessons and golf clinics as well as services like golf club rental, fitting and repair.

Golden Horseshoe Golf Club is public club that is part of the major tourist attractions at Colonial Williamsburg.

Kingsmill Resort and Spa offers charter bus golfers admission to three championship golf courses designed by Arnold Palmer, Curtis Strange, Pete Dye and Tom Clark.  The club and its courses are situated among rolling hills designed to provide challenges to even the most seasoned charter bus golfers.  Golf Digest lauded Kingsmill as one of the 75 best golf resorts in North America. V Charter bus visitors selecting accommodations at Kingsmill would be able to enjoy additional amenities, such as tennis and a full-service marina.  The Palmer-designed Plantation Course, ranked by Golf Digest as one of the 10 best courses for women, offers nearly 6,430 yards of play at par-72.  Charter bus golfers should visit one of Kingsmill’s restaurants or lounges before or after their game.
