Escalante Golf has acquired Kingsmill Resort from Xanterra Kingsmill, LLC. Located in historic Williamsburg, Va., Kingsmill Resort adds another important East Coast destination to the company’s expanding family of high-end clubs.
“Kingsmill Resort is one of the most iconic resorts on the east coast, started more than 45 years ago by the Anheuser-Busch Company. It has hosted some of the best-known names in golf, including the PGA Tour’s Michelob Championship from 1981 to 2002 and now the LPGA’s Kingsmill Championship,” said David McDonald, President of Escalante Golf. “It is a vibrant community with more than 2,400 home sites and has hosted presidents and dignitaries since it opened almost a half-century ago. It is truly a special place with a revered history.”
Kingsmill Resort is located on 2,900 protected acres along the James River. It boasts three championship golf courses: the River Course designed by Pete Dye, the Plantation Course designed by Arnold Palmer and Ed Seay, and the member-only Woods Course designed by Curtis Strange and Tom Clark.
