Primland, Va.

Tucked away in the Blue Ridge Mountains, this 12,000-acre retreat showcases a stunning Donald Steel-designed layout routed on a plateau 3,000 feet above a rock-studded gorge and the rolling Piedmont. The Highlands Course, opened in 2006, ranks among the nation’s finest mountain golf experiences. The resort’s 26-room LEED-certified Lodge, built with timbers salvaged from old tobacco-curing barns, is the summit of rustic refinement. Guests can hike or mountain bike to secluded waterfalls, fly-fish for native trout, and stargaze the jet-black night sky in the observatory.
