Rated 5 out of 5 by pjgalbi Wonderful Michael Strantz course
If you like Michael Strantz-designed courses, you'll like this one too. You'll not forget this course, it has interesting and unique holes. And it is a literal arboretum when it comes to tree varieties, flowers and general plant life. Play the right set of tees and you will have a ball playing this course. Play the wrong tees and I guarantee you'll have a miserable time, so swallow your pride and play the front tees if you are not a good golfer. Members of Brickshire are also members here, but in talking to them they generally fear this course. But there is nothing to fear, really…Royal New Kent is so scenic and interesting I can't see how people don't want to play it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by ja0713 Another Strantz Gem
A big, challenging course that I really enjoyed. The second Stranz course I have played and it didn't disappoint, very unique layout. Staff was the best, allowed my son to tag along with me at no charge (A+). Course conditions were good, bunkers in need of attention.

Rated 4 out of 5 by BLHipgrave Awesome Scenery and Layout
The most picturesque course we played on our 6 day romp through Virginia.
A makeshift links layout with many tantelizing carries that in a return visit I may try but initially I would not recommend.
After lots of rain the night before we had many cart path only holes which made for a very long round ( 5 hours ) in very hot weather (95).
The scenery was awesome and the course was in good shape despite the weather.
A definite must but play the correct tees and bring some extra balls...lots of extra balls.

the front nine may be one of the toughest in the mid-Atlantic.

Rated 4 out of 5 by SELFTAUGHTMAN Wide fairways....Huge Greens
This course will severely test your game...Don't let wide fairways and huge greens lull you into thinking "I can score here"....Not the case...Long with high slope ratings....This course will have you talking to your self...You had better be on your iron game and chipping/putting... Guarantee you will shoot 3 to 5 strokes over your handicap.....Good thing is.... YOU WILL want to go back....Mike Strantz gem....Links style

Rated 5 out of 5 by u000006532009 Beautiful & challenging course
Beautiful course...very challenging! With all of the blind shots and wind, pulling the correct club was never easy. No hole on the course is an easy birdie...every shot requires complete attention, even on the green.

Rated 5 out of 5 A great course that you need to play more than once.
The course is very tough; many blind shots, elevation changes, and difficult greens. If you like Tobacco Road, this is another Mike Strantz.
