The Itinerant Golfer

Kinloch Golf Club

Shinnecock Hills was the first private Top 100 course I played after receiving I an unexpected invitation from a member named Kevin. After having a great afternoon on the course we sat down on the clubhouse porch for a drink and Kevin asked me about the new course that Vinny Giles had been involved with down in Richmond. He was referring to Kinloch Golf Club and after a brief conversation about the club I off-handedly said “If you ever get to Richmond let me know and I can probably line a game up for us”. Kevin then informed me that he spent a lot of time in South Carolina and that he often drove through Richmond on his way back to New York.

    Just spent two days at Kinloch. Loved the course, caddies, hospitality and the cottage. Even had a Vinny Giles sighting! By the way I think the photo above is 16, not 15.
