Bath County Travel Guide
The Homestead has three excellent 18-hole golf courses. The par-70, 6,679-yard Cascades course, the site of USGA and Senior PGA events, has gently sloped fairways amid rugged terrain. The par-72, 6,752-yard Lower Cascades course, designed by Robert Trent Jones, has more wide-open fairways with many bunkers and breaks. The par-72, 6,211-yard Old Course is most famous for its first tee, established in 1892. It's the oldest tee still in continuous use in the United States.
