It's Primary Season For Golf

WILLIAMSBURG, Va. - Golf primary season is upon us - when duffers up and down the East Coast and across the country hit the links and get back into the game.

In this diverse and opinionated land (and potential "swing" state), Kingsmill Resort asked the more pressing question on hand:

"If the leading contenders vying to be the President of the United States talked golf programs, what might they say about the resort's just-unveiled Best Golf Package Ever ($139/person for one round of golf, AAA Four Diamond accommodations and breakfast overlooking the historic James River)?"

  • The Bernie Sanders Package would allow everyone to play for free, stay for free and eat a free breakfast - but the new tax on the Best Golf Package Ever program would be $139/person so that others can play for free.
  • The Donald Trump Package would be the Best Greatest Golf Package Ever, and your game will be so amazing that you'll want to pay an extra $139 to make your golf game great again. Just don't ask for any details on the package.
  • The Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton Package would be tempting; the resort will keep golfers' scores electronically on a computer server in the pro shop's bathroom and if you don't like your final score, it can just be wiped clean. But you must wear a same-color pantsuit to get into this game.
  • The Marco Rubio Package would allow you to play with anyone under 46-years-old for free, which is ideal for people traveling with kids.

You have the right to ask, to know and to say: What does Kingsmill Resort know about presidents, golf and political debate?

Well, the resort is located on the actual land where the Jamestown settlers first set foot on American soil and where skirmishes in the American Revolution and War Between the States were fought.

That sacred land is now part of a championship golf course (the Par 3 17th hole on the James River to be exact), where President William Jefferson Clinton (don't ask and don't tell your score) and President George W. Bush (you have to have a "strategery" in this game) have played.

Even President Barack Obama headquartered at Kingsmill Resort to prepare and practice for his second debate against Mitt Romney in 2012, though he did not hit the links.
