Detailed description of Homestead Resort, Cascades Golf Course

Homestead Resort is a 54 hole resort / open to the public golf and resort facility located in Hot Springs, Virginia. The facility has three 18-hole championship golf courses. They are, The Old course, The Cascades Course, and The Lower Cascades Course. The Homestead’s golf tradition dates back more than 100 years. The historic resort is home to three championship golf courses that make the most of their breathtaking mountain setting – especially the spectacular waterfalls and rushing stream of Cascades Gorge

The Cascades Course was designed by William S. Flynn and first opened for play in 1923. The course was redesigned by Robert Trent Jones Sr. in 1961. In 2006 it went through a further renovation that restored the course to original design.

The Cascades Course is considered by many to be the finest mountain course in the country. the Cascades Course stretches out below Virginia’s breathtaking Allegheny Mountains. Tthe Cascades uses its varied terrain to influence play, not dictate it. Advanced players are rewarded for shotmaking, while less skilled golfers are not penalized by forced carries or unfair hazard placement.

The Cascades course has narrow fairways and well-bunkered greens. "GOLFWEEK" at one point rated this as Virginia's #1 course. The Cascades Course has played host to two U.S. Women's Amateur Championships, a Curtis Cup match, and the U.S. Women's Open.

The Cascades is noted for grooming some of the PGA's past and present touring professionals. Foremost among these are Sam Snead, who began his professional career at The Homestead in 1934, and Richmond, Va., native Lanny Wadkins, the 1995 Ryder Cup captain.

Par-70, 6,667 yards, 72.8 / 134
