Member tees aren't listed on the score card.    What are they? A hybrid of white and green?

Funny to see this place on here...

I lived in Richmond for almost 10yrs up to 2014 and played this course quite a bit until I moved to NY as it was my regular playing partner's favourite area course. Has some nice interesting holes and I certainly wouldn't classify it as hard. For a woodland course it does incorporate some links-esque feeling on some holes rather well!

Within a few miles of Royal New Kent there are several other courses of similar style; Brickshire and Viniterra being the closest.

The local CBS TV station in Richmond had a screaming deal each year where for $150 you got to play six local courses (including a cart!) and these three were always included. The first year I did it the River Course at Kingsmill (that was an LPGA tour course and former PGA tour course) was included and that would have been $180 on its own!

I still travel to Richmond regularly for work and see someone else here is a local but if anyone wants any pointers just shout.

Unfortunately I'm already travelling elsewhere in the country, otherwise I'd be sorely tempted. 

RNK is a skip from RIC airport...

My son and I are interested.  I gotta check with the significant other.  Also, my son just had his appendix removed, so he'll be rusty and sore.  But it ought to be fun, and I've heard great things about the course.

Two weeks is plenty of time to heal up. We'd be happy to have you!

Possible for me to bring a non-TST buddy? Not sure how that will affect numbers

Not positive he can make it, but wanted to get a feel from the group first

I think that’s fine as week-of additions. Put him on the waiting list if he’s able to come. Ideally it’s TST people.

Or get him to register and make a few posts. 🙂

I'm a 21 from the Invicta tees :bugout:

So I guess those tees will remain undefeated.

Maybe she’ll want to sleep in and have some alone time. 🙂

That sounds like her birthday gift to me.

    • Day 51 - Worked on some hip turn in the mirror. Need to film for Evolvr tomorrow, see how my setup looks. 
    • Made it through 16 holes today at +11 (73). Had 14 GIR/nGIR. I was about 30 yards from the green on a par-5 when I had to quit due to darkness. Just extrapolating my scoring, if I par #17 (considering I was close to GIR already), and bogey #18, that would be an 83, which is an excellent score for me on this course, from the tees I was playing. My ball striking was good all round, and I only had one horrendous mishit (topped a 3W off the tee on #2, ended up making a 6). The wind was strong and gusty so the ball was doing some weird stuff. On the first hole I flushed my drive, and it only got out 228 yards, then proceeded to hit my hybrid 260 yards just short of the green.  
    • Day 317 Played 16 holes today. Started pretty late in the afternoon, and was almost home on the par-5 17th hole when it was finally too dark to continue so I picked up and headed home. One of the best rounds in recent memory, and there was some pretty wild wind to contend with. Too tired for a superspeed workout so that will wait until tomorrow.
    • The only people that are allowed to whine about 3 putt pars are tour pros😉. Just kidding. Glad you got out for a round, and keep that driver in play and going LONG!!!
    • Day 126.  Speed sticks, protocol one at halftime of SNF.  It has been eleven days since I did this last;  that's way too long.
