Royal New Kent is a tough links course that use to be top rated in Virginia. It has a new owner who is making the investment needed to regain its stature.

It looks spectacular. This is no ordinary golf course. You have to be able to get the ball in the air off the tee or you will lose quite a few. Hard to play on a sunny hot day because there isn't much shade.

This is a tough course, made worse by poor conditions. Bunkers washed out, washouts in the fairways, poa or similar weed on the greens

We love Mike Strantz golf courses. This one might be his toughest (Tobacco Road is a close second). The layout is wonderful and each hole is unique - just a tremendous golf course. So why 3 stars? The conditions were weak, like 3 stars -...More

Played here in 1997 when I believe we paid nearly $145... Paid $45 on Labor Day and still love this course! Teed from the black 6650 yards and drove very well (265 yd avg) thereby hitting mid to short irons in. Teeboxes were B+ considering...More

This is a course that takes two or three rounds to really embrace and enjoy. It is challenging and in the Mike Stranz design tradition messes with your mind on the visuals. If your a first timer, you need someone who has played the course...More
