If you’re planning a group vacation, the people at Kingsmill Resort and Golf Courses have a question to ask you: What’s a group trip without a game or two of golf?
No matter if you’re planning for a small destination wedding trip or a large tour group, the staff and facilities and Kingsmill Resort will be there to make your stay a success.
Kingsmill History and Geography
Kingsmill Resort is located in Williamsburg, Virginia. That also makes it within America’s Historic Triangle of Williamsburg, Jamestown, and Yorktown. The resort property, a former plantation, is situated along the scenic curves of the James River.
Getting to Kingsmill is easy, whether you’re travelling by car, plane, or even train. There’s an Amtrak station in Williamsburg, and the resort has easy access to Interstate 64. Kingsmill is about 150 miles south of Washington DC, or midway between Virginia Beach and Richmond. The area is served by three local airports: Norfolk International Airport (45 minutes to the east), Richmond International Airport (45 minutes to the west) and Newport News-Williamsburg Airport (20 minutes to the east).
Kingsmill Resort Golf and Lodging
Kingsmill Resort has become an increasingly popular spot for group travel of all kinds. The staff is highly trained and attuned to the needs of their visitors. There are over 400 rooms available, and the meeting facilities are top-notch. But that’s not all there is to this resort. Its mixture of attractions is unique: not only are there gourmet dining and a spa on the premises, Kingsmill is also close to some of the most well-known historical sites in the United States. And, as the only resort that fronts the James River, there are water sports and scenic views aplenty.
And let’s not forget the world-class golf. In the case of Kingsmill, the adjective world-class isn’t just marketing hyperbole; the three courses on the resort were designed by golfing legends Arnold Palmer, Peter Dye, Curtis Strange, and Tom Clark. Kingsmill Resort is also home to the LPGA Kingsmill Championship, played yearly on the grounds.
Kingsmill Resort’s golf courses are called The Plantation, The River, and The Woods – each named after the most dominant aspects of the landscape. All of the courses offer a challenging 18 holes, surrounded by gorgeous Virginia scenery. Group travel planners have found that this is more than just a golf resort; even guests who have never picked up a putter in their lives find a lot to love at Kingsmill and the surrounding area.
Kingsmill Dining and Attractions
You won’t find dingy grey food options at Kingsmill Resort. And your group won’t be locked into a single “bar and grill” hotel restaurant. There are six restaurants in the resort, offering cuisines that range from quick snacks to regional specialties. (There’s also a selection of great food available in-room if guests don’t feel like venturing out after a long day.) The Bray Dining Room provides seasonal comfort food in a quietly elegant atmosphere, while local seafood is on the menu at the James Landing Grille. Steak lovers won’t want to miss the meat at Eagles, and Regatta’s tempts all appetites with its wood-fired pizzas and Italian cuisine. If guests are in the mood for some organic coffee and freshly-baked breads and desserts, than The Mill is the place to go. And finally, there’s the poolside Currents, where you can get a sandwich or a salad.
Of course, there’s no rule saying that people have to stay in the resort for their entire trip. And with the attractions available within a very short distance, they probably won’t want to. Colonial Williamsburg brings history to life with reenactments and dramatizations of one of the most tumultuous times in American history, and it’s only a 10-minute drive down the road. Other attractions in the area include Busch Gardens, Water Country USA, art galleries, wineries, and shopping.
