Great design and good conditions. Really cool bunkering. A bit pricey but you get a lot of history and a former PGA tour venue.

Our foursome has played a lot of GREAT courses over the years and recently played The River Course at Kingsmill and we would all rate this course A+. Very well maintained and beautifully designed course. The 16th and 17th are really something to see. PS This website puts everyone's average as 88--our averages are from 80 to 95 to give you an idea of where our review of this course is taken from various handicap perspectives.
