Kingsmill Golf Williamsburg VA

    Kingsmill’s River Course is 30 years old and is the best known of the three – the other two are the Plantation and the Woods.  The men’s tees play to a mild 6,325 yards with a rating of 70.9 and slope of 133. This course is home ot the annual Michelob ULTRA OPEN LPGA Tournement.
    The River course is not tough but it is thoroughly enjoyable. Pete Dye ( course designer) tucks plenty of bunkers close to the greens, dearly penalizing any offline strikes.  However, the greens are more than amply sized, 46 yards deep on a few of them, including the finisher which features nasty narrow traps along the entire left side and an even nastier one, because it is small and deep, at front right.  From the men’s tees, #18 is not long (362 yards) but the drive, over water and two traps 180 and 212 out on the left, must be perfect to have a straight-in approach to a narrow entryway to the green.

    If there is signature hole on the River course, it is #17, the only hole that plays along the James River.  The green is enormous, a full 50 yards deep and guarded on the right side by a small bunker front right and a longer one beyond it that runs the rest of the length of the green.  The only bailout area is short and left, but hit too long on that side and you will find yourself in gnarly grass with a downhill lie from a steep bank.  On the card, the 17th is the easiest hole on the course, but choose the wrong club and bogey is likely.

    The Plantation is an Arnold Palmer design that plays to 6,430 yards from the tips, with a rating of 71.6 and slope of 127.  It is considered the least challenging or interesting of the three courses.  The Woods course, a Tom Clark/Curtis Strange design, is the only layout at Kingsmill without homes in sight.  It features a parkland style with some deep ravines and a quirk or two; for example, one double green features a sand bunker at its core.  As for degree of difficulty, The Woods’ ratings and slopes at the tips and men’s tees fit between the Plantation and River Courses.

    There is one more course at Kingsmill, a nine-holer that Golf Digest once called, “The most opulent pitch and putt in the country…”    The Bray Links is a short course wedged between the resort’s conference center and the James River.  It has the best views of the river of any of the courses and is typically in excellent condition, with bent grass greens and Bermuda rough that is tended  regularly by the same keepers of the other courses.  It is a great place to hone your short game.
