Best Golf Courses Near Harrisonburg, VA
Harrisonburg, “The Friendly City” located in Virginia’s stunning Shenandoah Valley, may be best known as the home of James Madison University and its FCS national powerhouse football team. Surrounded by the Blue Ridge Mountains, Shenandoah National Park, Massanutten Mountain, Allegheny Mountains and Washington National Forest, Harrisonburg’s golf courses wear one of the town’s other nicknames, “Friendly in Nature,” very well.
