Royal New Kent Golf Club

18 Hole Course

Welcome to Royal New Kent Golf Club

Royal New Kent, one of the few courses designed by the late Mike Strantz, offers a captivating golf experience. Known for his highly creative approach to golf course architecture, Strantz crafted a 7,480-yard masterpiece that challenges traditional design norms. The course, which originally opened in 1997 as The Tradition at Royal New Kent, seamlessly integrates its holes to create both a functional and visually stunning layout. After closing for several years, new ownership revitalized the course, allowing future generations to enjoy its unique beauty. Strantz, whose notable designs include Tobacco Road in North Carolina and both True Blue and Caledonia Golf and Fish Club in the Myrtle Beach area, drew inspiration from the classic seaside links of Ireland, such as Ballybunion and Royal County Down, when creating Royal New Kent.

Course Bunkers and Water Hazards

Royal New Kent is distinguished by its 120 bunkers, native grasses, and undulating fairways and greens. Each hole on this par-72 course stands out as unique and memorable. While it features blind shots, the landing zones are quite generous, making them fair challenges. The greens, frequently tucked behind large grassy knolls, are notably undulated. However, for those who can skillfully shape their shots or strategically target the right sections of the greens, opportunities abound to score birdies.
