LGPA Returns!

The LPGA announced a return to Kingsmill Resort in Williamsburg, Virginia, beginning in 2012 with the Kingsmill Championship. The tournament marks the Tour’s fifth new event – and fourth in North America – on the 2012 tournament schedule.The $1.3 million Kingsmill Championship will be played September 6-9. In 2013, the tournament will return to a traditional early-May date.

“We are truly thrilled to bring the world’s best golfers back to Kingsmill, where the LPGA has such a great history,” said LPGA Commissioner Michael Whan. “As our players will attest, Kingsmill is a premier venue and we all look forward to working closely with the resort’s new owner, Xanterra, on this tournament. In 2012, the LPGA’s motto is “See Why It’s Different Out Here,” and we hope that fans and media will have the opportunity to find out for themselves.”

We are very excited about the LPGA’s decision to return to Kingsmill Resort,” said Andrew Todd, president and CEO of Xanterra. “Kingsmill’s history as a host of an LPGA tournament was one of the factors we found attractive when we purchased the resort, and it has been a goal of ours to reestablish a relationship with the LPGA and help bring a tournament back to Kingsmill Resort and Williamsburg. We look forward to hosting the players again and presenting a first-class event on our challenging River Course.”

The River Course at Kingsmill Resort previously hosted the LPGA’s Michelob ULTRA Open at Kingsmill from 2003 to 2009 with winners including Grace Park (2003), Se Ri Pak (2004), Cristie Kerr (2005, 2009), Karrie Webb (2006), Suzann Pettersen (2007), and Annika Sorenstam (2008).

The College of William & Mary Students Return!

In less than 2 weeks the town will be buzzing with brand new freshman College Students. We are excited to see the returning students as well as those brand new freshman as they try to navigate their way around town. All of the local shops will be filled with parents and students purchasing all of those items they forgot at home. Williamsburg is a wonderful place to attend college as it is a safe haven with a low crime rate so parents can take a deep breath and relax. Many tears will be shed in the next few weeks but we are fortunate to have many William & Mary parents make us their home away from home while visiting their children at College. We will see the parents send off their students with a tear in their eye but watch them over the 4 years relax as they all adjust to the changes. Graduation fills the Inn with the same parents who celebrate the completion of 4 years! We offer wonderful, comfortable and clean lodging for the College of William and Mary families and are located directly across the street from the Mason School of Business at the College. If you are looking for a place to make your home away from home for the next 4 years, call us! We will be happy to accommodate you!  Please feel free to check out our rooms and remember we offer a complimentary full breakfast as well as free onsite parking
