“Hit it. Hard.” That’s a simple enough instruction for Birdwood’s finishing hole, but the 18-hole course at the Boar’s Head is anything but simple. A par-72 course, it recently received a 4.5-star ranking on Golf Digest’s “Best Places To Play” list. In Crozet, Old Trail Golf Course takes advantage of its location at the base of the Blue Ridge Mountains with a course worthy of its surroundings.
