What Do Charlottesville Golf Communities Do On Vacation?
Charlottesville has a selection of lovely golf communities, each with its own excellent golf course, but it is still fun to play a different course. And what better time to explore new golf courses than when you are on vacation. Some golfers plan their vacations around a golf destination and others are able to slip a round or two in among other vacation activities. One of the great things about the game of golf is that you can find a course almost everywhere that you go.
Recently I went on vacation and had the opportunity to play one of the more unusual courses. Furnace Creek is located in an oasis in the middle of Death Valley. It is the lowest course in the United States at over 200 feet below sea level. Can you imagine a golf course in the middle of the desert with rocky rugged mountains in the background? I imagine that it would live up to its name and be a furnace in the summer, but on a January day the temperature was in the high sixties…perfect. Wildlife abounds and we were greeted by a coyote on the first green. It was amazing how unconcerned he was with the people. We finished playing at sunset to the sounds of owls hooting in the trees. This was definately a different experience from golf in Charlottesville golf communities. Its fun to go away but its great to come home to the best place to live.
