Primland golf course honored with ‘Golfweek’s Best 2020’ distinctions

The Highland Course at Primland, one of luxury boutique resort’s collection of first-class amenities, has garnered acclaim from Golfweek as one of America’s finest playing venues.

Set within Primland’s 12,000 acres of pristine Blue Ridge Mountains majesty in Southwestern Virginia, The Highland Course earned the No. 2 rating in Virginia among the state’s several hundred public-access courses. It also ranks No. 37 in “America’s 100 Best Courses You Can Play” out of more than 10,000 public courses in the country.

The Highland Course features immaculate conditions, stunning views, no surrounding development, and a masterful course layout by Englishman Donald Steel, whose design philosophy highlights nature and golf tradition.

“Good courses protect the environment, bad designs disfigure it,” said Steel, who has the rare distinction of having advised every club or course on which the British Open Championship is, or has been, played. “They should provide an interesting challenge and fair test for every class of player; and they should make the best possible use of the land.”

Steel’s beliefs are on full display at The Highland Course, which flows seamlessly and breathtakingly through the dramatic mountain landscape, as if it has been there for time immemorial.

This latest acclaim for the Primland golf amenity comes after recently being rated No. 30 in Golf Digest’s biennial “America’s 100 Greatest Public Courses, 2019-2020.”

“Primland is thankful for this critical praise,” said Steve Helms, Primland Vice President. “Our mission is to inspire our guests with our wide range of luxury amenities and activities.”
