Raspberry Golf Management curates all three courses, which provide golfers with a host of verdant landscapes that constantly demand strategic, risk-reward golf shots. Bisected by Beaver Creek with nine holes situated on each side of the waterway, Old Hickory Golf Club is a verdant wonderland of mature-tree-lined fairways, A4 bent-grass greens, and a 10,000-square-foot clubhouse. Fairways are open with forgiving mounds protecting both sides, giving way to bunkered greens that can move errant golf balls fast across the surface like caffeinated hummingbirds. Elevated tees abound, as seen on the 400-yard par 4 second, which challenges golfers with a downhill shot flanked by waterfalls to the left and a lake to the right.
Bull Run Golf Club is an 18-hole championship golf course sprawled across 450 acres of greenery set in the foothills of Bull Run Mountain. Although convex fairways help wayward tee shots stay on course, many holes present forced carries over wetlands that challenge approach shots. Other hazards appear in the form of grass hollows, bunkers, and poltergeists that heckle golfers perched on the branches of mature trees found throughout the course.
A 2010 Golf World Readers’ Choice Award winner, The Raspberry Falls Golf & Hunt Club benefits from a vigorous course crafted by Gary Player Design. Fore-shouters relish the links-style layout spread across a former raspberry farm, which is peppered with Scottish-style pot bunkers and sloping, unforgiving greens that can easily send balls on rollercoaster rides to the beach.

Augustine Golf Club's award-winning course was sculpted to reflect its natural beauty with its distinctive par 4s sculpted by course architect, Rick Jacobson. Although the greens at Augustine declined for a few years, recent renovations have restored the course to its former glory, once again luring golfers to its babbling streams and forest. Farther north, rivals Augustine's sister course, Raspberry Falls. Course architect Gary Player remarked that the Falls, once an 18th-century plantation, “was made for a golf course.” Inspired by this ideal setting, he dreamed up the links-style course at Raspberry Falls Golf & Hunt Club, whose meandering brooks, stone walls, and stacked-sod bunkers evoke Scotland, while its vista of the Catoctin Mountains remind players they’re in Virginia.
These golf havens have more than picturesque views in common—they are two of six award-winning courses united by Raspberry Golf Management’s portfolio, which stretches from Virginia to Pennsylvania and skips over to Arizona. Gary Player’s design team for Raspberry Falls included Tim Freeland, who went on to design two of the firm’s other courses: Royal Manchester Golf Links, whose bentgrass fairways sidle up to the Susquehanna River, and Old Hickory Golf Club, a parkland-style course crisscrossed by Beaver Creek. The management company's other gems include The Legacy Golf Resort, where cowboys used to ride their rocking horses around a 7,500-acre ranch, and Bull Run Golf Club, which sprawls across more than 450 acres of meadows and woodlands at the foot of the Bull Run Mountains.
