  • 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...  more »
  • 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 »

  • I have been playing this course since it first opened yet hadn't played it for over a year until yesterday. We were quite disappointed in the condition of the course. The fairways and tee boxes are burned out and appeared to have gotten some weed issues as well. The greens were in fair condition but were like a sponge all around them due to overwatering. The bunkers as well had weeds growing in them. The worst this course has looked and played.
  • The playing condition of the course is excellent for mid-February & like it's two sisters courses, there are five tee placements on each hole giving various talent level golfers a more enjoyable round. In addition they frequently send attractive offers by email, some with a free lunch voucher for the much better than average snack bar!
  • Was a great course 10 years ago. Was in terrible shape. Fairways were burned out. Greens were. Very very slow and Bumpy. Traps were the worst. Was very disappointed
  • Royal New Kent is spectacular. Really an unforgettable experience. If you've never played the course, expect to hit the ball more often than normal. Once you've played it a few times it becomes more enjoyable, and a real accomplishment when you score low. Generally the course is in great condition, with fast greens, lush Bermuda fairways and punishing bunkers. The expansive layout makes this a 4.5 - 5-hour round.
  • This Course out of all 3 of the surrounding Traditional Golf Clubs in Virginia is by far my favorite. (One of the best in all of Virginia) The course is definitely challenging the first time you play it. But once you know what shots are needed on each hole, it gets more enjoyable each time you play. They hosted my wedding golf tournament this past memorial day weekend and Kim and her staff where fantastic to work with. They made it special for me and my guests. If you live in the surrounding area, sign up for their Rewards Club, and receive unbelievable deals all year long. I'd give it more than 5 stars if I could. Brady Q.
