Golf Courses Near Harrisonburg, VA
Tucked in Virginia’s beautiful Shenandoah Valley and surrounded by the Blue Ridge Mountains, Shenandoah National Park, Massanutten Mountain, the Alleghenies, and Washington National Forest, Harrisonburg is an inviting spot for anyone looking for a tee time. For many locals, the first choice for a Hot Deal is Lakeview Golf Club, a well-groomed, picturesque 27-hole facility that Golf Advisor formerly rated among Virginia’s top 25 courses. Heritage Oaks is a player-friendly layout with a more open, somewhat link-style front nine and a narrower, tree-lined back nine that brings more water into play. Packsaddle Ridge Golf Club, located close to Massanutten Mountain, is another beauty that rambles on higher terrain and showcases views from its 13th hole that can extend all the way to West Virginia on a clear day. For resort experiences in Harrisonburg’s orbit, consider Massanutten Resort, where you’ll find two golf courses and a plethora of other activities, and Shenvalee Golf Resort, a Golf Advisor top-25 course in Virginia that boasts three nines, including the “Olde Course,” which Bobby Jones helped christen in 1927. Keep an eye out for Hot Deals at Shenvalee.
Harrisonburg has a lot of nicknames, but the one that sticks is “The Friendly City.” Though it’s a college town with youthful zest, a vibrant arts and culture scene, and a love for college sports thanks to James Madison University and Eastern Mennonite University, Harrisonburg is an inviting and hospitable place to people of all ages. Downtown boasts a 40-block historic district where you’ll find a diverse collection of restaurants in what was deemed Virginia’s first “Culinary District.” Harrisonburg also is home to several cideries, vineyards and craft breweries, and it’s a stop on the Shenandoah Beerwerks Trail. Above all, though, locals love being outdoors—it’s easy to see why with spectacular parks, forests, and mountains all around. It’s easy to see why golf is popular here, too, with so many beautiful courses to choose from in the Shenandoah Valley.
