The Resort at Glade Springs has 200 stay options including 48 guest rooms and suites at The Inn as well as 1 – 6 bedroom Vacation Rentals. They also have three championship courses. Stonehaven is one of the top courses in the state. Woodhaven is the newest family member offering majestic mountain scenery and views of the Glade Creek Gorge. Then there’s the original Cobb Course that was built in 1972 and designed by renowned architect George Cobb.
We had the pleasure of playing Stonehaven. It is my personal favourite probably because it is the most photogenic with elevation changes of up to 80 feet per hole. It also had the best greens that we played. What makes this course so different is the black crushed limestone in the waist bunkers that gives then a grey hue. There are a number of signatures but what I remember the most is their 2nd hole, a great downhill par three and the 6th, a long par three across a valley with rocky outcrops. The best photo opportunity was as we approached the top of the hill overlooking the 16th tee below with a magnificent vantage point to see this daunting par 5. This course is not to be missed.
Unlimited Golf Packages starts at $209USD with full breakfast and up to 54 holes of golf.
