Very nice course in excellent condition when we played there back in June. Greens were true and fairways were in perfect condition. Would definitely play there again. One caution would be carful if looking for a ball in the rough as my son saw a large snake there.

Prior to playing for the first time today, I had heard the course was one of the best in Hampton Roads. The staff was very welcoming in both the pro shop, and the grill. The course was in great shape, and fairly challenging. I look forward to my next round.

Cahoon is in great condition. Tee boxes are a little chewed up but that's expected anywhere that gets heavy play. Fairways are in good shape. If lazy people would repair there divots the fairways would be perfect. Please get some sand in those bunkers. Greens are great. They roll nice.

1st time we played this course, had heard good things and we got a great deal on Golfnow. Wide open fairways, rough was thick and if you didn't follow your shot through the landing you could easily lose a few balls. Staff was very friendly, both pro shop attendants and the marshal who checked on groups on the course, after our round we spent a few minutes chatting with them, found out one was from New England as we are, picked up some info on the golf school as we are going to get our granddaughter started on the game, will definitely be back.

Course is challenging and fun to play. View's were great even with the housing construction going on. Fairways and greens are very well taken care of. Greens are fast with many undulations. Looks easy but the course is very demanding and you need to place your ball in the right position for your next shot. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Will play here again and recommend anyone to try this course.

This course is beautiful even with the construction around it, very well taken care of. But if your an average joe golfer stay away there are no rules posted on course and you are being watched not only by staff but by members living near the course. If your looking for a place to become a seasoned golfer this is for you, if your the typical weekender or hey I got a day off why not hit the course with some buddies you may want to look elsewhere. With all the courses in Hampton roads open to the public you would expect a more friendly place to play especially for the price. Good luck I hope this helps you with your decision to find somewhere else to play.

The course golf carts were restrcted to cart path only. The fairways were dry and I have seen them after watering when they were under no restrictions. 90 would have sufficient .

As always the course plays hard if you are in the fescue fairways. Rough was about 4 inches and around the greens around the same but the fescue roughs are VERY CHALLENGING AND DIFFUCULT WHEN NOT CUT DOWN. Stay in the fairway. Greens where hard and tight with no spin and not slow but not speedy. Always a delight to play but moved to slow today at about 5 hours 10 mins

Course was in really good condition from tee to green. Rough was very thick and a sure penalty if you miss the fairway, and the greens were VERY fast (but true). We played on a super windy day, so that made this course even more challenging than normal. I was surprised at how quiet the course, but it sure was nice to get through in just over three hours as a s Sunday morning twosome.
