With three nine-hole golf courses and the top-ranked Virginia golf school, Shenandoah Valley Golf Club has earned the designation of the best public Virginia golf club. One of the foremost media outlets in our sport has made the title official — Golf Digest recently named the club one of the 10 best places for a round of Virginia golf. Located at the base of the Blue Ridge and Massanutten mountain range, Shenandoah Valley Golf Club is a convenient 45-minute drive from Washington D.C. Our perfectly-manicured greens and fairways accomplish the difficult double task of challenging serious golfers while helping inexperienced players relax among the picturesque scenery as they learn to enjoy this classic game. Three sets of nine holes make up Shenandoah Valley Golf Club — the Red Nine, the White Nine and the Blue Nine. Each set boasts a different, unique personality, but they all demonstrate the commitment to excellence that has long made Shenandoah Valley the best public Virginia golf course. Distances, slope, par and course rating vary, but the combination of layouts at our course will appeal to all guests.

 Shenandoah is also the perfect venue for a fairy tale wedding or important corporate event as well as corporate and private catering. Finally, after your round of Virginia golf make sure to grab a bite at The Club 27 Fire Grill, which combines friendly service with a delicious menu. RSVP here.
