Birdwood Golf Course at Boar’s Head Resort
Boar’s Head Resort is owned and operated by the University of Virginia Foundation. With over 175 rooms, Boar’s Head is Charlottesville’s only AAA Four Diamond Resort. Birdwood Golf Course at Boar’s Head is currently undergoing renovations, but will soon be an 18-hole Love Golf Design course. Designed for players of all skill levels, there are five sets of tees, a new putting course, and a new Par-3 short course. According to Birdwood’s new design plans, Ryder Cup Captain and PGA Hall of Famer Davis Love II along with the Love Golf Design Team were hired by the UVA Foundation to redesign the golf course. Once the course is complete, there’s no doubt it will be one of the best golf courses in Charlottesville.
