Tough, tough course! Take your patience...but a blast to play if you like to think you're way around a course. Overall, course in great shape, although some fairways had large, unrepaired divots; and a couple fairways had crabgrass growing. Greens were spectacular...if you like fast greens! This is just a fun course to play. With the Tee Time Book, it was $40/player and we had the course to ourselves...never saw anyone. BTW, #17 is my absolute favorite hole--just fits my eye, and you can just go for it.

I'm a glutton for punishment! I just really like this course, even though it is extremely challenging. There are no two holes alike or similar...every look is different. As I stated before, this is "target golf"...you need to think your way around this course, make the right club selections, and be patient. The fairways were in okay condition, with some having spots of crabgrass coming up, while others had some huge holes (around drainage and pipes) and bare spots. Greens were fair, and the bunkers were excellent...great sand! Nice staff, as well. Very welcoming! (Read my previous review for the details of the layout.)

Gave us a great deal for $40 on a Friday morning, but we went out about 1.5 hours prior to a shotgun tournament. We ended up playing in about 5 hrs, but it ended up being a decent pace (given I took 3 friends who had never played the course and we took extra time surveying our shot options). This is a tough, tough course. It is not a grip-it-and-rip-it course, but very much target golf. You need to understand the "cause-and-effect" of the slopes, elevations, carries, and environmental areas on your shots or you're going to rack up the strokes. The course is in a good shape and is a unique experience...it's a beautiful course to look at--every hole is different. But, as I've said before, it's not for the feint of heart. The staff is always very nice and welcoming. But, know the course will take a little extra time because of the layout, bounces, and the trouble on each hole. If you've never played, try it. A word of advice, though--lower your expectations and just enjoy the challenge.

Played Royal New Kent the 21st,23rd and 26th of July. Played here many times before. Unique.Challenging but fair. Large fairways for the most part. Most difficult challenge is the 2nd shots on the par 4's and the tee shots on the par 3's. If your a 10 handicap or lower. You need to play from at least the black tees to appreciate this wonderful course. When I played the collars on the greens took getting used to. Have to chip.

Its too bad this course is located so far from DC or Baltimore (2-3 hours) I would play it every day. This was the fourth Mike Strantz course I have played and my playing partner was with me on my last trip to one of his courses (Tobacco Road) we kept saying this place looks a lot like Tobacco Road until we realized it was the same designer. If you have not played here you need to do so. Even in the middle of February it is in very good condition I can only imagine what it is like in the spring/summer. This course plays from 6200-7400 and there are some very wicked holes. Perhaps the great views will make you got get this course is kicking your butt. The first time you play it really gets its hooks in you but not in a way that you don't want to come back but just the opposite. Plan a week or weekend down to Williamsburg and play this gem and all the other around there.

At $40 with the Tee Time Book, it is a real bargain--plus a huge challenge! As I've stated before, this course is not for the feint of heart. It has the look and feel of true Scottish links, and it is a shot-makers layout. The tips are 7480 with a slope and rating of 77.1/153. If you are going to play this course, invest in a yardage book so you know where to place the ball. If you're a "grip-it-and-rip it" player, avoid the course. But, if you want a challenge, a course you have to think through each shot, and beautiful to play, Royal New Kent is it. There were a couple of fairways with GUR, but most were in great shape. Some bunkers needed work, as it was hardpan or had eroded a bit with pebbles coming to the top. The greens were in great shape and rolling very true. The only thing noticeable about the greens were that the first cut was much darker--almost painted looking--which gave the greens a dramatic look, but when you got to the green you could see they lost some grass. Remember, rolling fairways and mounding on and around the holes with plenty of native grasses, pines, bushes, and other high grasses and plants. Stay in the fairway!! Great staff, very accommodating. I don't know why I like this course so much--it always eats my lunch and I don't play it particularly well--but I really like the look and feel and the challenge. We played in 4 hours on a Wednesday morning.

We played this last in our recent trip to Williamsburg, and it's our three rounds were just like a symphony building and building to a rousing end. A great course to challenge and sometime confound even the best of golfers...but well worth it. Recommend you move forward from your normal tee to keep your head screwed on right.

This is a very challenging track. There is not an easy hole on the course. It is in superb condition for the time of the year and the weather this summer. The course requires precision long drives to find the fairway, but offers large undulating greens to receive your second and third shots. Tee Time book prices are good deals, but the regular fees are a little pricey. Snack bar is excellent. Course has been the venue for several professional tournaments. As I was told by other golfers before I played, "Bring lots of golf balls."

This course is not for the faint of heart. With native grasses, severe doglegs, blinds spots, several long carries, ravines, no flat lies, and trouble everywhere, this course is a real target-golf opportunity. Make the investment in a yardage book, because you'll need it. But, if you like a challenge, this course is exactly what you need. There are some beautiful holes, interesting layout, and fun to play. With the Tee Time Book during the week it's $40, and they do run specials. With the severe heat, it has held up well with mostly green fairways and greens. It's not an easy course, but worth the experience if you're in the Williamsburg area.

Royal New Kent was in excellent condition. They have overseeded the fairways, and, since we usually play in the Spring, it was fun to play when the course was green. This is a visually and physically(carts on path) demanding course not for the weak of heart and soul, but you gotta try it at least once.

What a course! The Royal New Kent golf course reminds me a bit of Whiskey Creek out in Frederick. The layout is fantastic. The links style course has a ton of bunkers, blind shots and large greens. The staff was very friendly and the snack bar was great.

One of the most challenging courses out there. The greens are lightning fast, the tee shots are very difficult and the par threes test your long irons. The conditions were perfect. If I was only good, it would have been a perfect round
