Back in the mid-Seventies Pete Dye designed this course in one of the most historically significant places in America, near Colonial Williamsburg, and for many years it has served as the venue for PGA and LPGA Tour events. Dye came back some three decades later to carry out restorations that reaffirmed the River's status as one of Virginia's finest golfing experiences. The signature 17th, a 177-yard par 3, is of modest length but has water in play in the form of the James River all along one side and a bunker defending the broad green on the right. On the other par 3s, all of which measure over 170 yards, water is not an issue. The 7th, at 535 yards, is the lengthiest hole, and has bunkers from fairway to green. Kingsmill also offers two other eighteens, Arnold Palmer's Plantation and Tom Clark's Woods, as well as par 3 nine.
