Hampton Roads has no major-league sports team, but the area doesn't lack for competitive action. From baseball and golf to football and hockey to basketball and motorsports, there is plenty of fierce competition year-round.
Kingsmill. Home to the LPGA Tour's Michelob Ultra Open in May. Suzann Pettersen (2007), Karrie Webb ('06), Cristie Kerr ('05), Se Ri Pak ('04) and Grace Park ('03) have won this event. The resort, home to three 18-hole courses, is in James City County. The resort's River Course hosted a PGA Tour event from 1981-2002.
Colonial Downs. Just off Interstate 64 in New Kent County, Colonial Downs has thoroughbred horse racing in the late spring and early summer and harness racing in the fall, in a picturesque setting. The facility hosts the Virginia Derby and other top state races each year.Copyright © 2015, Los Angeles Times
