Plantation good warm-up for Kingsmill's River Course

Though it's just under 6,400 yards from the back tees, the Plantation Course at Kingsmill Resort is plenty challenging for a resort course and offers a nice complement to the championship River Course at the resort.

Designed by Arnold Palmer, it presents an unusual amount of left-to-right tee shots. They're large, so they are not overly difficult, but you if you get carried away with trying to fade the ball (for right-handers) trouble in the trees definitely looms. Mostly, though, the course is fun. Rolling hills and interesting greens make this a great warm-up to the River Course at the resort. And afterwards, you'll want to check out the Eagles Restaurant and Bar inside the clubhouse, which is a great place to grab a sandwich, crab chowder and local craft brew on tap.

Resort golf at it's best...I'll definitely be back!

I took my wife and 2 daughters to Kingsmill resort to visit Bush Gardens, Colonial WIlliamsburg and to play one round of golf. They had a Family Fun pack special Package so I was able to play the Plantation course for 30 dollars with a cart. The heat Index that day was 105 degrees but It didn't bother me one bit! The course is very friendly and lots of left to right shots so it's good for intermediate and even advance golfers that want to play from the tips. I played from the whites because I just wanted to enjoy myself on my vacation! I most certainly did. I will definitely go back and play this course again. The only bummer part was at the time I went they had someone vandalize the greens. No fault of Kingsmill. I really enjoyed my round!

A good compliment to the river

This course is pretty open and fun to play. Condition is good and the greens are awesome. A good companion to the better river course. Honestly I’d rate it much better if it weren’t for 1 and 18. 2-17 are great and have a lot of interesting challenging holes. 1 and 18 feel forced into a smaller space than needed. Both are short 4s (under 300) without any dogleg or really anything interesting at all to offer protection. Just take your 4 to start your day and look forward to a great rest of the round. If you’re having a good round thru 17, 18 won’t do anything to change it.

Poor early conditions

The course was mostly brown this early in the year. Apparently not much attention given to Plantation so preparations could be made to River course for LPGA>
