  • Royal New Kent is in better shape than I've seen it in years. This course plays tough and is not meant for those who spray it everywhere - it's very much a ball placement / shot management course but ...  more »
  • This is a tough course, made worse by poor conditions. Bunkers washed out, washouts in the fairways, poa or similar weed on the greens  more »
  • 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...  more »

  • Beautiful course. Front 9 is very hard, back 9 the course opens up a little however it's still hard. I usually shoot low 80s however shot 100 there. Didn't help I wasn't hitting good but the course is tough. Take lots of balls! You are in the fairway or in the native grass... You won't find your ball. Club house is nice, everyone is friendly and course was in good condition, a few holes were a little rough.
  • It is without question, the most dynamic course design in Virginia. While I haven't played Mike Strantz' Tobacco Road, nearby Stonehouse is equally unique. RNK's Tee-to-Green conditions remain very good and at no point were we disappointed. That said, we fortunately avoided all bunkers as the sand in many of them was rather thin and hard-packed. Greens were in beautiful shape, rolled true but were of only medium speeds. For $39 on a Wednesday, we played 18 with cart, hit excellent range balls and were treated to a hearty sandwich & a cold Vienna Lager at the turn! Unbeatable Deal! Why don't more courses offer these daily packages? Clearly, Golf has waned since Tiger's zenith and we thinning remaining players have to feel appreciated more. Traditional Clubs do great job of this..! As far as suggestions, we felt: - the bunkers should be re-raked at noon each day so as to match the premium up-market feel of the course design. [see Player Appreciation] - the 20 year-old cart paths need significant repair on at least 4 holes. [see Player Appreciation] - the driving range flags and yard markers are certainly due a refresh. Painting in "fairway edges" and a "green" at 150y would be of great help too. [see Player Appreciation] - EVERY water jug should be checked mid-day as we played on a cloudless 89F mid-October scorcher. 2 of the water jugs were EMPTY by 2pm. [again, see Player Appreciation] In summary, combining an amazing design, good conditions and a friendly supportive staff equal the best value in Virginia Golf. Here's to Another 20 Years of RNK!!

  • Good place to play golf
  • Best course in the area. I play it every chance I get. Great design and well kept.
  • best golf course ive played in my life,it was ridiculously difficult as well as beautiful. i was telling my playing partners that whoever built this course must've been on pcp. if you're a golf nut like i am this is a jewel,par 72 with at least 25 blind shots,bunkers like saint andrews,ondulating and three tiered greens,WHAT A BEAST!
