Golf – River Course - Advanced Sign-Up Required
For more than three decades, The River Course has hosted the world’s best players on both PGA and LPGA tours. It has also hosted thousands of lesser-known golfing superstars.
Bordered by the calm azure waters of the James River, this famed championship course has tested the mettle of the game’s most famous names. On a still morning, dew still beading on the precisely manicured greens, you can almost hear the echoes of applause for crisply struck irons and delicately holed putts. The River Course inspires you to test your own mettle. To see how you stack up against the greats of today, and of years gone by.
The course has been reborn thanks to the efforts of original architect Pete Dye. The renowned course designer tinkered just enough with his layout, bringing out the subtle details that make for a truly unforgettable round of golf.
Situated three miles east of historic Williamsburg, Va. is Busch Gardens, an action-packed European adventure theme park with 17th-century charm and 21st-century technology. The European countries of England, Scotland, Ireland, France, Germany and Italy serve as the setting for Busch Gardens’ 100 acres of fun-filled world exploration. Busch Gardens offers a wide variety of culinary experiences, world-class shopping, and exciting live shows. The park is also home to more than 50 rides and attractions, including KIDsiderate areas designed especially for the park’s youngest guests.

Golf - Plantation Course - Advance Sign-Up Required
The Plantation Course is an Arnold Palmer and Ed Seay design that challenges players of all skill levels. The 6,432-yard, par-72 course favors accurate iron play and good putting.
Fairway landing areas are generous, but water comes into play on eight holes, and there’s no shortage of deep woods or yawning ravines. Greens are large and provide inviting targets for approach shots. Once on the putting surface, undulations and swales make getting down in two a satisfying accomplishment.
With landmarks from Richard Kingsmill’s 1736 plantation woven into the landscape, a round on the Plantation Course is truly historic.
