This course is modeled after the Irish links-style courses. Target rocks provide direction to blind fairways, pot bunkers are deep and penal, and the giant greens are very slick. Hole #2, a 537-yard, par 5, features a nearly ninety-degree dogleg right fairway. The second shot offers the opportunity to hit over the waste area to the green or play it safely to the left. "GOLF Magazine" chose this course 23rd under the 1998 category of "Top 100 Courses You Can Play in the U.S." "GOLFWEEK" selected it 35th on its list of "America's 100 Best Modern Courses" for 1998 and 28th in 1999.

|From the tips this course is long and unforgiving. The fairways are wide, the greens large, the bunkers brutal, and the wind is always in your face. Bring lost of balls because to play this course for the first, or even the second time, you're going to need them. If you manage to keep your ball in play then you will score well. If you don't, then you will post a high number. This course is either loved, by the golf purest, or loathed by the weekend hacker. At either skill level you should give Royal New Kent a try. When you're having a pint in the club house after the round you'll be glad you did.|
