Located midway between Richmond and Williamsburg along the gateway to Coastal Virginia and the Outer Banks, Royal New Kent is a Virginia original sprinkled with Irish seasoning. Mike Strantz designed the golf course as a tribute to the fabled seaside links of the Emerald Isle, with an emphasis on the character and feel of two of his favorites —Ireland’s Royal County Down and Ballybunion — and bringing Irish golf to Virginia.
