There are ideals for every golf vacation destination, such is evident in the conveniences that the amenities in Traditions at Royal New Kent offers, which are full-service bar, dining and meeting rooms, practice facilities, and a pro shop, consistent to the high standards of its main attraction, the golf course. The basis is the spectacularly manipulated landscape with greens that shy away behind sharp, grassy knolls, and rock walls that hand stack along tall meadow fescue grasses. The par 72 golf course also features 12 bunkers which grow shadows lining into the enormously smooth greens that has audacious swales and ridges. Each hole offers a different kind of game for a golfer.
While meeting standards is the basic effort of this golf vacation course, it constantly goes beyond great. Topping among the best public courses in Williamsburg in the 2010 Golfweek, this course, flowing 7,372 yards, is a mind-sweep windswept ruggedly landscaping a golfer’s strategical play. Traditions at Royal New Kent has been called the “the truest representation of an Irish links in America” because it is evocative of the Irish Landscape, where Royal County Down and Ballybunion were built, which fulfils the link-style vision of its architect, Mike Strantz.
The character of Traditions at Royal New Kent lead to several recognition since 1997, when it first received the honor as “Best New Upscale Public Course in the Nation” by Golf Digest and No. 23 on Golf Magazines’s Top 100 you can play. Two years after that, this golf trip course received another name as one of “America’s Top 100 Greatest Golf Courses” by Golf Digest. After the millennium, Golf Digest placed it among the top three courses in Virginia with 4 1/2 star ratings. The course is traditions painted in royalty.
