Designer Notes

Set to open in the Summer of 2025, “The Shoe” marks a new era for golf at Colonial Williamsburg.  This new, nine-hole par-3 golf course reimagines about one-third of the former Robert Trent Jones, Sr. designed nine-hole executive length Spotswood Course, adjacent to The Golden Horseshoe Golf Club.  This original venue embraces the growing popularity of compact, family-friendly golf courses and offers a new experience for golfers of all ages and skill levels.

This is the resort’s first new course in 33 years.  It will provide a fresh and accessible golfing experience with shorter playing times, perfect for a quick outing with friends, active families and first-time players.

Set within the breathtaking scenery of the legendary Golden Horseshoe complex, surrounded by mature trees and stunning views, The Shoe expands the resort’s golf offering to 45 holes of championship golf.

Construction to start June 2024.
