Keswick Hall, a 48-room boutique hotel in the foothills of Virginia's Blue Ridge Mountains, has launched a golf school geared to beginners. At the Keswick Club's Golf School for the Novice, run by pro Eric McGraw, you can take beginner-friendly classes on an 18-hole, Arnold Palmer-designed course. Sign up for one- to three-day sessions on your own or with a group. Along with the basics, you learn rules and etiquette, and how to talk like a golfer. Courses range from $215 (one day) to $645 (three days). Rooms start at $255 per person, per night throughout the summer, and include passes to the Keswick Club and access to the spa, fitness center, and indoor/outdoor pool. 888-778-2561, www.keswick.com
