Detailed description

Keswick Club, is a Resort, 18 hole golf course located in Keswick, Virginia.

The Keswick Club golf course first opened for play in 1939. The course was deigned by Fred Findlay, a Scottish immigrant and renowned designer of several courses in central Virginia. The course was redisgned in 1990 by Arnold Palmer (The Arnold Palmer Golf Course Design Company), elevating Keswick to the status of an Arnold Palmer Signature Course.

Palmer said the course had "good bones" and was therefore able to keep the majority of the original design. Palmer's touches included additional bunkers, contouring changes to the land, greens built to United States Golf Association standards, and a new tee-to-green irrigation system.

This combination has produced a perfect blend of classical and modern golf course architecture. The lush grounds, old growth trees, shrubs, and sheer beauty will allow one to step back in time while playing a modern and very challenging course. Arnold Palmer has used the wonderful setting of the estate to fashion a course of exceptional natural beauty, featuring tall ancient oaks, grassy wetlands and spectacular mountain views as well as a variety of lakes and streams.
