The Elizabeth River winds through the par 70 course at Elizabeth Manor Golf & Country Club, which features 6,462 yards of bentgrass greens and meticulously maintained bermuda fairways. Cruise with clubs, golfing buddies, and cardboard cutouts of Greg Norman in a motorized cart, weaving through the bunkers and water hazards that pepper the course. Trees and bushes provide scenic foliage and stay respectfully hushed as club wielders hone both their putts and drives on the varied course. The club’s two restaurants fuel golfers with a lunch menu and dinner options, including stacked sandwiches ($7+), juicy burgers ($8+), or a dozen fiery wings ($10). Elizabeth Manor invites Groupon users onto its members-only course, which maintains a refined atmosphere with a specific dress code prohibiting jeans, uncollared shirts, and suits of armor.

Elizabeth Manor Golf & Country Club
As the annual host of the Eastern Amateur Golf Championship since 1957, Elizabeth Manor Golf & Country Club's championship course has attracted some of the country's greatest players on their journey to the PGA Tour. As golfers traverse each hole from tee to green, they can imagine themselves tracing the footsteps of Ben Crenshaw and Curtis Strange, both of whom played in the Eastern Amateur before illustrious PGA careers, during which they won a combined four major victories without ever corking a driver. Today, the 6,642-yard, par-70 course still hugs the Elizabeth River, utilizing the natural landscape with a challenging layout originally envisioned by course designer Dick Wilson in 1948. The course also benefits from more recent refurbishments that made the greens and bermuda-grass fairways more resilient.
A private establishment, Elizabeth Manor Golf & Country Club complements its golf course with a six-court tennis complex and an Olympic-size, outdoor swimming pool. The club also boasts two restaurants with two patios, where guests can enjoy views of the Elizabeth River and attempt to count the leaves on every tree in the vicinity.
