Golf Lovers Scenic Day Trip
Today, we will unpack the golf lover’s perfect scenic day trip – because I bet you didn’t know that nearby features the Guinness’ Book of World Records “The Longest Golf Hole in the United States”!
Fun fact, the course weaves its way through a pre-civil war homestead and cemetery and on the very ground where civil war battles were fought. While there, you’ll enjoy views of the champion purebred cattle grazing on adjacent fields.
If you love the course so much you are dreaming to stay to enjoy the scenic view – interestingly there is a cottage available on the course that sleeps 8 that comes with an unlimited golf package.
A Scenic Drive to a Rustic Venue for a Glass of Wine
When rounding out an early game has whet your whistle for a local authentic experience – a short scenic drive away is a super charming mom and pop winery. Chateau MerrillAnne seeks to bring the finest of the vineyard home to your table. Farmer owners Kenny and Emily White offer a relaxed and down to earth wine tasting experience in an old barn – described as most unlikely place to find such good wine – a working farm! At last year’s 24th State Fair of Virginia Commercial Wine Competition, their 2015 Petit Verdot achieved a gold, and their 2016 Viognier came home with a silver.
Also, they’re known as a local picnic destination – bring your basket to their open meadows, grab a table in the vineyard and eat among the grapes, set up under the sail shade on the deck, or in the air conditioned tasting room.
