Keswick Hall, the acclaimed 600-acre luxury resort in Albemarle County, has received the prestigious Golf Digest Editor’s Choice Award for “Best Golf Resorts in the Americas” for the fifth consecutive year.

Golf Digest annually celebrates the “best of the best” golf destinations as well as more than 30 additional industry categories. Keswick Hall was one of only seven resorts listed in the Mid-Atlantic section and joins the highest echelon of resorts across North America, including Pebble Beach Resorts, The American Club, Streamsong Resort and Bandon Dunes Golf Resort.

Keswick Hall continues to receive accolades from top publications, especially for its Pete Dye-designed golf course, Full Cry at Keswick Golf Club, one of Dye’s final projects. Full Cry’s layout sits at No. 3 in Golfweek’s “Best Courses You Can Play” in Virginia and is No. 39 in the publication’s “Top 100 Resort Courses in the U.S.”

Upon opening in late 2014 to rave reviews, Full Cry was named one of Golf Digest’s “Best New Courses” in the U.S. Full Cry hosted the Virginia State Golf Association’s 106th Amateur Championship last June.

The perennial Forbes Five-Star Award resort is currently amid a major hotel and amenities renovation headed by owners Molly and Robert Hardie, in conjunction with global design firm Hart Howerton. Once completed, the results will showcase the integrity of the original elegant structure and provide an even more luxurious and modern setting for Keswick Hall’s guests to savor a true world-class experience.

Project highlights include an increase in the number of guest rooms from 48 to 80, a dramatic new horizon pool and inspiring food and beverage outlets under the direction of acclaimed chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten, who will oversee the property’s culinary operations. During the renovation, Full Cry and the resort’s golf facilities have remained open.

“We are once again thrilled to be honored by an outstanding publication such as Golf Digest,” said John Trevenen, managing director of the resort. “Once our entire resort revitalization is final later this year, we look forward to our guests enjoying the results of the extraordinary renovation for decades to come.”
