A golf vacation destination designed by two renowned people — two-time U.S. Open champion Curtis Strange and golf course architect Tom Clark— may be expected to be boastful in nature. But that character is far from the modest attitude of Kingsmill Resort – Woods Course that is located in a private corner on the resort. The parkland-style golf course, with its wide fairways, large greens and water hazards, compliments with the well-conditioned natural beauty of the area.
Each hole of the Kingsmill Resort – Woods Course has unique golf trip attributes. The opening hole, that plays for par 4 on a 385 yards of amazing landscape, requires a tee that needs to favor the fairways on the left, in order to avoid a bunker on the right. The putts call for serious caution because the tilts of the greens forces a risk taking play. The 9th hole is a long par 5 that needs a tee shot in the fairway. Doing so will avoid the tall trees on the left and the intimidating hill on the right. Distance control on the front pin is a requirement in order to swale on the backside of this area. The last hole commands tactical two shots in order to finish. The perilously guarded area and multi-tiered green add to the thrilling feel of this specific hole.
The countless amazing features of the Kingsmill Resort – Woods Course are the basic elements why it was honored by GOLF magazine as one of the “Top Ten Courses Available for Public Play”. As soon as it opened as a newest addition to the Kingsmill Resort golf vacation destinations‘ family, many have become attracted to its seemingly quintessential orientation that has a mix of bewilderment, new to the Virginia golf community.
