Keswick Hall’s Full Cry Honored in ‘2015 Best New Courses’ List by Golf Digest

(CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va.) – Keswick Hall and Golf Club – the acclaimed 600-acre luxury resort set in Virginia’s scenic Hunt Country – announces its Pete Dye-design, Full Cry at Keswick Golf Club, has been named to Golf Digest’s prestigious “2015 Best New Courses” list.

This distinction is the third major honor Keswick Hall and Golf Club has garnered in less than a year. In Feb., the resort received the Forbes Five-Star Award for its exceptional level of luxury and service. This past Nov. Full Cry debuted at No. 47 in Golfweek’s “Best Resort Courses” list for 2016. Only 10 courses were selected for this year’s Golf Digest “Best New Courses” award.

Full Cry – a hunting term describing the call of hounds that have found the scent and are in hot pursuit of their mark – is the destination’s signature amenity.  With the exception of one hole, the greens on Full Cry have open fronts and are approachable by low “links-style” run-up shots or through the air allowing for multiple shot maker options. Players of all abilities will savor the “Old School Pete Dye” experience.

“We’re honored to receive this coveted recognition from Golf Digest,” says Greg Sligh, President and Managing Director of Keswick Hall. “The three major awards our resort has received this year place us as one of the preeminent vacation and golf destinations in the U.S.”

Perfect to enjoy golf in the area Thomas Jefferson once described as the “Eden of the U.S.,” the Pete Dye Golf Package starts at $319 (Monday – Thurs.). It includes a one-night stay in Keswick Hall’s elegant boutique hotel, one round on Full Cry (plus complimentary replay), and “Grab and Go” breakfast. Perfect for a couple’s getaway, a second golfer may be added for $75.

The region is home to Thomas Jefferson’s Monticello, the University of Virginia and numerous outdoor pursuits, drawing history buffs, wine lovers, sports enthusiasts and nature seekers year-round. Keswick Hall features newly refreshed upscale accommodations, spa services, fine dining at Fossett’s, and myriad amenities. Highly decorated, it has attained Condé Nast Traveler “gold” status, and is one of Travel + Leisure’s 500 “World’s Best Hotels.”
