Itinerary for The Best Golf Getaway

Not only do we have two course and two completely different designs, but when you book a Stay & Play package, you’ll get a great experience and a great value. Oh and did we mention that Devils Knob is Virginia’s highest course? Well, it is! So if you’ve been looking for the best experience and true mountain golf, look no further.


Vacations should be easy. To make your golf vacation as easy and enjoyable as possible, here’s a sample itinerary full of insider tips:

Day 1 – Arrival Friday

Stay & Play can last as many days as you want – we recommend Stay 2, Play 2. That way, you can play Stoney Creek on day of arrival or day of departure, and you can spend the entire middle day on the mountain to play Devils Knob.

On Your Way to Wintergreen
Start your vacation with a tasting tour! There’s wine, beer, and cider tastings along the road to Wintergreen – consider checking out Veritas, Bold Rock, Wild Wolf, Devils Backbone, or others along Nelson 151.

Check In: 4 pm
When checking in, be sure to look through This Week at Wintergreen for dining options, hours of operation, and events. Make sure your tee times are set up for the next 2 days!

Relax Before Dinner
Aquatics & Fitness Center - Hang out at the pool, work out in the fitness room, do a few laps, hit the sauna or steam rooms, then relax in the hot tubs.

Dinner
The Edge – from starters and salads, to hearty sandwiches, bowls and burgers, it a great way to unwind from a hectic work week. You can even sit at the bar and watch a ballgame on one of the TVs, and if you stay past 9 there might be some live music!

Don’t Forget To Look Up!
Before you go to sleep, if it’s a clear night, step onto your deck or patio and do some stargazing.

Day 2 - Saturday

Breakfast
Fill up at The Copper Mine Bistro to fuel your day!

Golf Devils Knob
Get excited – you’re about to play Virginia’s highest course! This Ellis Maples designed 18 hole gem is a true mountaintop course with dramatic elevation changes. You’ll find narrow fairways, speedy greens and unsurpassed vistas. Typically 12-18 degrees cooler than surrounding areas, Devils Knob provides Virginia's coolest playing conditions throughout the summer and panoramic mountain foliage backdrop throughout the fall. If you love mountain golf, this is one for your bucket list.

Lunch
Grab a bite at the snack shop, or go all the way at Devils Grill.

Devils Grill - Overlooking Devils Knob 18th hole, Devils Grill serves elegant contemporary fare in a beautiful club setting. From tasty sandwiches and salads at lunch, to hearty steaks and chops at dinner, Devils Grill uses the freshest and highest quality locally sourced food. Devils Grill is great for lunch or dinner, and the patio also offers an easy-breezy view of the course. And since you’re staying with the resort, you have exclusive access to both the golf course and Devils Grill.

Afternoon Activities

Spa – After a day on the links, treat yourself to some TLC. The Arnica Sports Massage is geared to soothe tired muscles. Be sure to reserve your appointment before you come to guarantee the time and service that fits your schedule.

Hike – If you still have energy to burn, take a hike on over 30 miles of marked hiking trails and discover the beauty of The Blue Ridge Mountains.

Aquatics & Fitness – nobody would blame you for spending a little more time at the pool! Put your feet up on a chaise lounge and kick back.

Dinner

The Copper Mine Bistro - From tapas to pizza or luscious entrees. Our favorites are the Seafood Sauté, Lamb Rack or Short Ribs. Or just make a meal of the tapas – the Risotto Cakes are over the top.

Day 3 – Sunday

Breakfast
On your way to Stoney Creek Golf Course, stop at The Summit at Devils Backbone and grab a breakfast panini. See their menu.

Golf Stoney Creek
Upon completion of Stoney Creek, the "Open Doctor" Rees Jones remarked, "I think what Stoney Creek is to me, is one of the great settings in mountain golf." Offering spectacular vistas of the Blue Ridge Mountains, the Monocan, Shamokin and Tuckahoe "nines" wind their way through the Rockfish Valley and combine to make this a contemporary design classic. With surprising elevation changes, contoured greens and the occasional side hill lie, Jones brought the natural elements of the landscape into play: meandering streams, hardwood forests and pristine wetlands. A real joy to play!

Lunch
Stoney Creek Bar & Grill - Our restaurant in the valley sports an amazing veranda with fantastic mountain and golf course views. Choose from satisfying sandwiches like the Turkey BLT, Cheesesteak, or Smoked Ham, Apple and Goat Cheese Wrap. And for guilt free dining, the Chicken Cobb is satisfyingly delicious.

On Your Way Home
Stop by Blue Ridge Pig in Nellysford. Bring the area’s best barbecue home for dinner!
