Blue Ridge Shadows is about an hour west of the northern Virginia area off I-66, north of Front Royal in the Shenandoah Valley, and surrounded by the Blue Ridge Mountains. Tom Clark designed the stunning golf course of 7,315 yards, 143 slope from the back tees, with four shorter sets of tees. Parkland style course routed over hilly land as it was, not much made up here. Tree lined holes, split fairways, double greens, elevation changes, and a 60 foot waterfall give you a lot of distractions. Visually intimidating the first few times you play, and kept in excellent condition with a great pace of play.
