Kingsmill Resort (River course)


4+ (4 gold): one of our top-rated 4-star courses, worthy of 4½ stars.
   Kingsmill Resort (River course) Est. 1975

Where2Golf says: 

The Kingsmill Resort is home to three 18-hole championship golf courses: the River and Plantation courses, and the private member-only Woods course. The River course is generally the highest ranked, and is kept good company at the resort centre by the also well-rated and pleasantly testing Plantation layout.

The River course is a championship layout that ranks with some of the best in Virginia. This tree-lined and open parkland course provides a wonderful test for your all-round game, with many attractive, skilfully crafted and challenging holes to enjoy. A must play if you are in the area. At this Stay&Play venue, the on-site accommodations are located close to the golf facilities.
