Good, not Great
The fairways were nicely maintained, greens were fair, probably about as good as bent grass can be in this area in peak summer conditions. Parts of the course are just odd, several tees are either closed or in terrible condition due to being covered with trees (6, 8, 11, 16, 17, 18 come to mind readily) and a few holes have trees that block the tee shots (6 and 11). The 7th hole is scenic...but has a small green with hazards left and right on a 220 yard hole. It's a 400 yard walk from 17 green to 18 tee. I'd play it again, it's a fair value for the money, but overall, it's pretty "meh."
Golf in Hampton Roads
Course is always fun to play-good lay out-staff is always friendly-pace of play is good-food service is tasty.
Other courses are much better
Don't waste your money. Overall, this place is very poor. There are tons of courses within 15min of this place that are much better. The greens and fairways are bare at best with dirt in the middle of the fairway. No on repairs divots or ball marks. The staff, especially the marshals are pointless and rude. If you decide to play here, even if you can handle the previous things, plan on a 5-6 hour round cause no one allows you to play through and the marshals don't care about pace of play. Spend your hard earned money at much better courses in the area.
Will play it again soon
I play here a couple times a year. The course is in great shape. There was rain the day before and there were 3 holes that were cart path only. The greens were a little long and slow probably becasue of the wet weather. Overall the course is in great shape. The guy that checked us in and the starter were very courtious. Free range balls this time of year is a bonus.
Great course for Tournaments.
Always a friendly, professional place to play. Well kept, good practice areas. Good challenge. BC
