Devils Knob Golf Course at Wintergreen Resort
Perched atop the Blue Ridge Mountains, an elevation of 3,850 feet not only makes Devils Knob the highest golf course in Virginia, but provides majestic, 50-mile views of the Shenandoah and Rockfish Valleys. Demanding accuracy from tee to green, what Devils Knob lacks in length, it makes up for with difficulty. Tight doglegs, sloped fairways and devilishly sloped greens create a challenge from start to finish. Ranked as one of Virginia’s best courses, the thin air provides some extra carry on most golf shots and the altitude creates an escape from the summer heat, normally keeping mid-day temperature in the 70s and 80s. Wintergreen Resort is an 11,000-acre, four-season resort located in the Blue Ridge Mountains southwest of Charlottesville.
