Golf at Boonsboro


Set in the rolling hills of Virginia’s Piedmont region, Boonsboro is home to one of the Commonwealth’s “classic” golf courses. Its rich tradition dates back to its 1923 inception, when the renowned Willie Park Jr. gave his enthusiastic approval for the tract of land and selected the routing of the golf course which was later designed by Fred Findlay. Construction was completed and the course opened for play on July 1, 1929. It possesses characteristics that give it historic context and classify it with its contemporaries. 
 
“The history and the classic design character of your course are its identity. It flows naturally across the land. It was designed and constructed in an era during which significant changes to the landform were almost unheard of. Shapes, forms, and movement are natural to the site; they fit the place. The design is an exercise in subtlety rather than a statement of golf course architecture dominance. The maturity of the landscape and the uncluttered edges of your golf course are an invaluable asset and are rarely found in modern day golf courses. For these reasons, the golf course holds a place in history. It has legitimacy. It is most identifiable because of its past and the era in which it was created."
