British Open

Enduring the British Open, a golfer must display patience, shot variety, and uncanny visualization. Purposely competed on links-style courses, the major will take the golfer to another time and place, where wispy grass, rolling hills, and sandy dunes await. One must be prepared for uncommon lies, blind shots, and large undulating greens if they hope to claim the title of Open champion.

The very first major to be competed in the VGC series back in 2009, The British Open was the most defined major from the beginning. The idea that playing on links-style courses would bring a European feel to our local game, the British Open as born on the grounds of Royal New Kent. Each subsequent year as made efforts to continue that tradition, one which continues to challenge to golfers on each aspect of their game.

Game returns each year to the essence of golf, an old world touch on the modern game. Return visits to Royal New Kent, Legends - Moorland, and The Highlands provides the feel of tradition. The British Open of Virginia is the foundation in which the other majors established their roots. The evolution of the modern VGC must bow to the original: The British Open.



As with many a great ideas, the Richmond Amateur Golfers Association evolved from a long history of good times and great friendships. It is our goal to enhance the game of golf through friendly competition in a relaxed, stress-free environment.
