Good morning,

The rain has set in as we received .5″ overnight with more to come.  All three golf courses will be open for play today and we will be Cart Path Only on each course.  The sod installation on #16 River will be delayed today due to wet conditions and the contractor will be back on property tomorrow to finish the project.  Have a wonderful day!

Good morning Kingsmill!

Spring has officially sprung, although there is a winter chill in the air this morning!  We will have a slight frost delay on the golf courses to begin the day.  We will update the blog with starting times at 9:00 am.

We will be wrapping up the Plantation greens aerification today and will be open for play tomorrow!  The process has gone well and we will look forward to warmer weather and having those healed in as quickly as possible.

The past few days we have had a contractor on site to help with some sod projects on the River Course and around the Golf Academy chipping green.  We will have these areas marked with a white line and keep them as Ground Under Repair until they begin to tack down to the ground.  Please take relief from these areas. The areas are on #4 green surrounds, behind #8 green, and #16 green surrounds.  We are excited to have pure bermuda grass on these surfaces and it should provide a much cleaner look going forward.

Good morning,

It’s a chilly and foggy morning out on the golf courses!  We shouldn’t experience any delays with tee times and will open the Woods off #1 at 8:30 am.  The River Course will be hosting the third round of the William & Mary Intercollegiate tournament, Plantation Course will be closed for greens aerification.  Don’t let this wacky weather turn you away today!

Following the tournament on the River Course today, we will have a contractor prepping areas around #4 and #16 green for new bermuda sod.  This is to remove the lingering grassy weeds and ryegrass.  We are aiming to have this project wrapped up by the end of the day tomorrow and will keep the new sod marked as Ground Under Repair until warm weather allows it to tack down.

Good morning Kingsmill!

We’ll see cooler temps this week compared to last, but the forecast is dry and our team will be out in full force!  The Plantation Course will be closed until Thursday for greens aerification – we are excited to finish the spring aerification practices and get everything healed in.  The Woods Course will be open today for play, so come on out and get a Monday round in!

Good morning,

It is a bit chilly at Kingsmill this morning! Without the presence of frost we will be on time for golf, so come on out and play. We remain dry enough to continue the 90 degree rule for carts, with a few exceptions. Have a wonderful day!
