Detailed description

Homestead Resort is a 54-hole resort / open-to-the-public golf and resort facility located in Hot Springs, Virginia. The facility has three 18-hole championship golf courses. They are The Old Course, The Cascades Course, and The Lower Cascades Course. The Homestead's golf tradition dates back more than 100 years. The historic resort is home to three championship golf courses that make the most of their breathtaking mountain setting - especially the spectacular waterfalls and rushing stream of Cascades Gorge

The oldest of the three courses is The Old Course. An American monument to the game, The Homestead's Old Course was completed in 1892. The course was designed by Donald Ross.

The course has the distinction of having the nation's oldest first tee in continuous use. Yet as golf has evolved over time, so has The Old Course. The storied layout received updates from William S. Flynn and Rees Jones. One result is abundant fairway contouring that gives most shots a side hill, uphill or downhill lies to greens that are smaller than average.

The Old Course features narrow, tree-lined fairways and small, undulating greens. This mountain-style course plays through hilly terrain, and there are some dramatic elevation changes.
