Five Peaks at Wintergreen

Golf, Wintergreen, Tennis & Winter Sports

The Wintergreen Resort is well known as one of the best ski areas in Central Virginia.  But did you know it is also home to great golf and tennis?  Golfers may want to explore outside the Wintergreen Resort as well, because there are a number of wonderful golf courses in the area.  We list some of the courses pretty close to Five Peaks, but do check around, because if you’re up for a drive, you can find a multitude of courses within an hour of Five Peaks.

Wintergreen Resort Maps – links to resort maps. Stoney Creek (the home of Five Peaks!) Wintergreen Mountain – up at the ski slopes, mountain lodge, etc.

Wintergreen Current Events – check out this weekly update from the resort for special deals and events.

Wintergreen Skiing – with the new quad lifts and serious snow making, Wintergreen has awesome skiing.  But there’s a lot more than skiing up on the mountain.  Check the link for current slope conditions, to make reservations, and see all that Wintergreen has to offer.  Five Peaks is located in the valley portion of Wintergreen, about a 20 minute drive from the slopes!

Other Winter Activities – Wintergreen offers more than skiing during the winter months.  Check out the link for ice skating and other winter fun!

Wintergreen Golf – 27 holes at the Stoney Creek Golf Course (open and playable all year, except snow days, and just down the hill from Five Peaks) and the Devil’s Knob 18 hole course on the mountain (the highest course in Virginia).

Wintergreen TennisTennis Magazine has ranked Wintergreen a mong the nation’s top 50 tennis programs for the past 18 years.  If you love tennis, you’re in the right place.

Winton Golf Course – about 35 minutes south of Five Peaks. Wide fairways, great views, casual, and inexpensive.

Swannanoa Golf Course – gorgeous views of the Shenandoah Valley to the west and Virginia’s Piedmont to the east.  Located near Rockfish Gap, about 30 minutes from Five Peaks.  Casual and ‘rough hewn’, this 18 hole course is very popular, and at 25 bucks for 18 holes and a cart on weekdays, extremely reasonable.

Old Trail Golf Club – in Crozet, about 35 minutes from Five Peaks.  A relatively new course, it is challenging and gorgeous.
