Family Time is Fun Time on the Golf Courses at Wintergreen Resort

(WINTERGREEN, Va.) - Providing a comfortable setting for families to enjoy playing golf together while on vacation, Wintergreen Resort is introducing a variety of activities this summer that make it easy, affordable and fun to play afternoon golf.

Wintergreen features two distinctive golf courses, Devils Knob on the top of the mountain, and Stoney Creek in the valley below. Each is a welcoming, relaxed venue staffed by golf professionals who are tuned in to what a family needs to create a fun experience - whether they want to try golf for the first time, hit balls at the practice area, play around on the putting green, or go out and play a few holes together.

The Family Fun 9
Take your family on a nine-hole golf adventure. Wintergreen has everything available from clubs and balls to a quick group lesson - with the focus on fun. The Family Fun 9 is a casual way to introduce your family to golf, or to just spend some special time together. Devils Knob is "golf central" for this program, providing Family Fun Tee Markers that will make each round quick and enjoyable. The package includes:
• Tee times are available on Monday through Thursday, starting at 3 p.m.

Try 3

Start with 30 minutes of simple, easy-to-understand instruction from a Wintergreen teaching professional, then move onto the course to play three holes.
