About Us



We are based out of Williamsburg, VA and launched our business in January 2008.  Owned and operated by Premier LLC which has been booking golf and family vacations in Williamsburg for over fourteen years.  Virginia Golf Vacations also books golf vacations to Charlottesville, Northern Neck Area, The Shenandoah Valley and Virginia Beach.  Our team is made up of industry professionals that have many years experience in Hotel Operations, Golf Operations, and Group Reservations.

Our goal is to make the planning process as smooth and simple as possible, especially for "group leaders" or "trip captain's."  We understand how difficult it can be to get everyone organized and will help with the planning process even helping with course, accommodation and restaurant selections based on group preference.  We also have special payment options that allow group members to pay individually, taking the financial burden of the group away from the trip planner.
