In the heart of the Allegheny Mountains of southwestern Virginia, is one of the America’s grand resorts; The Omni Homestead Resort.
Here you’ll find unparalleled hospitality sprinkled with its southern charm. Located on 2,300 acres, the resort is renowned for its hot springs and so much more. Check out the top must-dos on your next golf trip to this 253-year-old beautiful charming resort.
1. Tee-Up On The Oldest First Tee
Completed in 1892, the Old Course is distinguished as the home of the nation’s oldest first tee in continuous use, celebrating its 127th anniversary this year. As the game has evolved, so too has the Old Course, with updates by William S. Flynn and Rees Jones. Abundant fairway contouring gives most shots a sidehill, uphill, or downhill lie to smallish greens, making approach shots interesting.
2. Play The Cascades Course
Golf legend Sam Snead once remarked that if he could play only one course, it would be the Cascades Course in Hot Springs, Virginia. Frequently considered one of the best courses in Virginia and one of the top mountain courses in the country, the Cascades at The Omni Homestead Resort is regarded as one of William S. Flynn’s finest works.
3. Lodge On Property
Renowned for its Southern hospitality and natural hot springs, the resort offers 483 guest rooms and suites. After your round of golf, you can head to the bar or back to your rooms as everything is within close proximity of each other.
