Resort of the Week: Colonial Williamsburg Resort

Boasting a huge variety of lodging choices, ranging from Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star, AAA Five Diamond luxury guests rooms to authentic colonial homes that accommodate every budget, families and couples alike will delight in the many amenities on offer at Colonial Williamburg Resort. At top of mind, of course, is the golf. The resort’s Golden Horseshoe Golf Club features two 18-hole Jones family-designed courses: The Green (Rees Jones, 1991) and the Gold (Robert Trent Jones Sr., 1963; renovated by Rees in 2017). For family fun, you can take a spin around the short nine-holer, Spotswood, also designed by Jones Sr.
