Kingsmill currently has 3 different golf courses all consisting of 18 hole tracts. Just next door, the Kingsmill Resort attracts a variety of groups that visit the Kingsmill Conference Center each year. For example, Barack Obama uses Kingsmill as his private retreat to prepare for debates during election years. While both the Republican and Democratic leader use the Kingsmill Resort for meetings almost annually. During these times, one of the courses is designated as a member course to assure that there is always one course that remains “private” for the members. The River Course at Kingsmill is currently host to one of the LPGA Tournaments which is broadcast nationally each year on either ESPN or The Golf Channel. The Plantation Course at Kingsmill offers the most opportunities to live on a golf course in this neighborhood. Nearly the entire course borders single family homes in Kingsmill. This is where legendary golfer Curtis Strange lived while playing on the PGA Tour. The Woods Course at Kingsmill is built differently than any other golf course in Williamsburg. There an no homes located on this course…thus the name, The Woods Course. Although beautiful, most Realtors would prefer to have a few houses to sell on this incredible tract of land.
The Golden Horseshoe Golf Club has the Gold Course and the Green Course. Both courses wind their ways through an undeveloped corner of the City of Williamsburg.

Stonehouse Golf Club is located just outside of Williamsburg and was designed on a unique piece of property for the area. Williamsburg is generally flat with some rolling hills. On the contrary, this tract of land consists of steep ravines. It makes for some challenging golf and unique building lots. Many of the custom homes for sale in Stonehouse have basements. Home sizes range from 3 bedroom to 6 bedrooms and 2500 square feet to 7000 square feet. Stonehouse homes can be found on and off of the golf course. Stonehouse offers a unique opportunity to get into an upscale neighborhood early in the development process. With hundreds of acres still to be developed, I expect Stonehouse homes to go up in value as the buildout continues.
