Wintergreen Resort (Devils Knob course)

4-star: Above average course - well worth a visit.

Est. 1976

At the Wintergreen Resort in the famous Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia, you'll find two very contrasting 18-hole championship courses. Accessible to resort guests, the Devils Knob layout sits atop a mountain of the same name. 12 miles down the mountain, at a much lower altitude, is the year-round Stoney Creek course, which boasts 27-holes playable on a daily fee basis.

The tree-lined Devils Knob course lays down an excellent test, especially in terms of straight-hitting from the tee. You will be treated to one or two spectacular lookouts on your way round, but for most of the time the quite tightly tree-lined fairways will command your attention. Water hazards feature rarely, while sand traps also shouldn't pose too great a threat.

This cart-compulsory undulating layout contains many attractive features and several excellent holes to enjoy. The well-crafted, although always tightish layout offers an array of straightaway and gently doglegging holes, with one or two sharper doglegs also in the mix. Keeping the ball "on the short stuff" and out of the trees is certainly your main challenge, while enjoying the tranquil splendour of the surrounding forest provides your main distraction.

Did you know?

The Devils Knob golf course sits atop a mountain of that name, one of many wooded peaks found in the Blue Ridge Mountains. At 3,845 feet above sea level, Devils Knob is the highest golf course in the state of Virginia. One or two holes on the course offer spectacular views of the Shenandoah and Rockfish valleys. Sitting just below the mountain to the west is the famed Blue Ridge Parkway.

Bernhard Langer: at age 64, Langer collected a record sixth Charles Schwab Cup, the only player to have won the season-long points chase more than twice. He also topped the PGA Tour Champions money-list for the 11th time out of a possible 13 since 2008.

In 1975 he became the first African American golfer to play in the Masters tournament, and in so doing provided one of the pivotal moments in the history of professional golf.
