Williamsburg’s Golden Horseshoe Golf Club will host qualifying rounds for the Drive, Chip and Putt National Championships at its renowned Gold and Green Courses beginning May 1.

The Drive, Chip and Putt Championship is an important golf initiative designed to inspire youth interest in the life-long game, the program is supported equally by the Masters Tournament, the United States Golf Association and the PGA of America.

The Drive, Chip and Putt Championship is a free nationwide program aimed at growing the game by tapping the creative and competitive spirit of boys and girls ages 7-15.  What makes this program unique is that participants who advance through local, sub-regional qualifying in each age/gender category earn a place in the National Finals, which is conducted at Augusta National Golf Club the Sunday before the Masters Tournament.

No matter the skill level, and given the reward of competing at Augusta National, the Drive, Chip and Putt Championship is an exciting way to inspire a new generation of youth to choose golf as a recreational sport and make it a game for life.

Qualifying opens May 1 throughout all 50 states.  In just two years, the successful program has experienced major growth in registration and interest.  More about this opportunity for age-eligible youth may be found at www.drivechipandputt.com.

The Golden Horseshoe Club is set in a Certified Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary surrounded by nature.  The classic Gold Course, designed by Robert Trent Jones Sr. more than 50 years ago, is steps away from the Spa.  The adjacent Green Course, designed by his son Rees Jones 25 years ago, represent the first father-son layout in the country.  Jones Senior also designed the popular nine-hole Spotswood Course.

Revenue from spa services and golf play on the Golden Horseshoe Golf Club’s three courses supports the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation’s mission to educate future generations and keep American history alive and thriving.
