Close to other attractions
The Gypsy Hill Golf Course is located in Gypsy Hill Park. Gypsy Hill Park was originally bought by the city to preserve the springs that provided Staunton’s water supply in the late 1800s. It was named for the travellers who camped near the springs on their way through the area. Over the years, the city has built various recreational spaces including a walking and biking loop, playgrounds, bandstand, tennis courts, fishing and duck feeding lakes, picnic facilities, and a dog park. It’s an easy walk from the park to Queen City Brewing and Lundch for refreshments after your round, and it’s only a mile to downtown.
