Elizabeth Manor is more than a golf course and country club – it’s a lifestyle. Founded in 1948, the club is a well-known landmark located in the historic city of Portsmouth, Virginia.
Originally designed in 1948 by Dick Wilson, the 18-hole, par 70 championship golf course is a Private Golf Club and features a full-service Professional Golf Shop, world-class practice range and short game facility. Committed to a high-level of excellence, the course has been reimagined into a world-class course beginning in 2019 by owner Dwight Schaubach and his team with the consulting of World Golf Hall of Fame member and Two-Time Eastern Amateur Champion, Ben Crenshaw.
Beyond golf, Elizabeth Manor offers several family-friendly, resort-like amenities including tennis, swimming, culinary delights, and memorable social events. Explore how the course has evolved in its 70+ year history.
That same year, Elizabeth Manor hosted the Inaugural Eastern Amateur Golf Tournament, a popular event that has continued to be successful through the years.
This tournament attracts many outstanding amateurs from throughout the United States, and other countries. Many of the great names in professional golf came to Elizabeth Manor Golf and Country Club to play in the Eastern Amateur when they were amateurs, including Curtis Strange, Ben Crenshaw, Galen Hill, Tom Strange, and Dean Beaman. Over the years, many people have generously contributed their time and efforts to ensure the continued success of this prestigious tournament.
In 2019, Elizabeth Manor Golf and Country Club was purchased from its members. New ownership is committed to the restoration of the clubs’ tremendous history, and has several improvements planned over the course of 2020 to update and modernize the course and amenities while maintaining its original character. Members will see enhancements made to the course conditions including a redesign to the teeing areas and repairs made to all the bunkers throughout the golf course. Course renovations were designed with the consulting of World Golf Hall of Fame member and Two-Time Eastern Amateur Champion, Ben Crenshaw.
