2018, After a long week of waiting on the weather, 54 holes was not enough to decide the champion. It took two playoff holes for Ariya Jutanugarn to be crowned the Kingsmill Championship presented by GEICO champion.  Jutanugarn defeated Nasa Hataoka and In Gee Chun in a playoff to claim her first win of the season.

Hole Description

Hole01
Par 4: A properly placed tee shot to the left side of the fairway will leave a short iron approach into the green. Beware of the bunkers on the right side of the fairway, as they do come into play from the tee box.
Hole02
Par 3: A demanding hole requiring an accurate mid to long iron shot into a well-guarded green. The conservative play is to aim for the front-left portion of the green allowing the terrain to feed the ball toward the center.
Hole03
Par 5: Longer hitters may go for this green in two but will be hitting into a small, elevated target. Others will do well to lay up on the left side of the fairway at the bottom of the hill, leaving a comfortable short iron shot into the green.
Hole04
Par 4: Placing the tee ball on the right side of the fairway creates an open shot into this narrow green. Longer hitters may take a more aggressive line from the teeing ground, but more often than not the risk far outweighs the reward. The key to this hole is taking the left side out of play.
Hole05
Par 3: Aiming for the center or left side of the green is the smart play. Beware of the hazard and bunker that guard the right side of this green. Better scores will come from shots hit to the left side of this hole.
Hole06
Par 4: A properly placed tee shot to the left side of the fairway will leave a short iron approach into the green. Beware of the bunkers on the right side of the fairway, as they do come into play from the tee box.
Hole07
Par 5: A true three shot par five requiring length and accuracy off the tee. The second shot should favor the right side in order to set up a level lie for the approach shot into the green.
Hole08
Par 4: Accuracy off the tee is the top priority on this difficult par four. Tee shots should favor the left center of the fairway. A narrow green requires a precise second shot as well. This is one of the River Course’s most demanding holes from tee to green.
Hole09
Par 4: This long par four requires two good shots to get on in regulation. Several bunkers guard the right side of this kidney shaped green making the front left portion of the green a safe play.
