First Time Here, and I'll be Back

My first time here and it's a pretty nice course. It has been very hot the last 2 - 3 weeks so there are some dry areas in the fairways, but it's not bad. My only real complaint would be that the tee boxes are dry and it's very hard to place a tee in many of them. A little more water would be helpful. The greens were aerated probably 2 - 3 weeks ago and are almost completely grown back in. They were rolling a little slow, although they were mostly smooth & true. If the course could coax a little rain, it would be excellent. The staff was really friendly, too. A nice track, overall

Solid coarse

Even in the middle of this drought the coarse was in better then average condition. It was dry but the coarse was really fun to play. In another week or two the greens should be back from being aerated. Will play again for sure.

Best Course in Area

Playing golf in Tidewater is great however, Suffolk golf Course was the best I have played on. I thought it was most well maintained and beautiful course in the area. It was challenging to say the least. If you want a change of pace this curse has lots of challenges that I haven't experienced anywhere else in Tidewater.

Not a quality course or operation.

Terrible conditions. Didn’t know front was closed for punching but that has to be done so no issue. In pro shop attendant was on the speaker phone with another working talking about a female worker that wasn’t showing up for work. Finally he got to us and got us going. Out tee time was 9am but he told us to go ahead at 830 so we did. We played hole 10 and then ran into a total log jam. Waited 20 minutes to tee off on 11. We finally quit after 1 hour and 3 holes finished. On our way in, there were singles and 2’s all the way in. Horribly managed.m that day. Course is not pristine or even nice but it’s cheap to play so no issue there.

Overall Not Bad

Course in pretty good shape but the fairways needed mowing. Pace of play on back 9 was a problem. As a threesome we played front 9 in 1:20. Took 2:45 to play back 9. Good value for the money. Really needs a Marshall on Holidays and weekends to move the slow players along.

On and off rain so no pace issues. The greens could be softer but overall one of the nicest courses in Hampton roads for the money!

Buddy and me got on for a late tee time today and we left the course both agreeing that this was some of the most enjoyable golf we have played in a while. Not a long course but the track is perfect for golfers of all skill levels. The course is in solid shape right now making it one of the best values in the area.

Country Golf At It’s Finest

Eddie Luke and staff do an amazing job with this muni that was built in the 50’s...Bermuda fairways and hybrid Bermuda greens that roll really fast and true...it’s a beauty set amongst tall pines in a country setting. Truly a throwback to another time. I’ve been playing this course for 30 years...actually learned how to play using this course....she’s 6200 from the tips but plays longer than it’s stated yardage. A must play if you are in the Hampton Roads area!!!

Hidden Gem

Me and a buddy play all over the Hampton Roads area and this course surprised us big time. Fun layout, pretty decent conditions (especially considering the time of year), and it was cheap. Staff was friendly. It's a bit out of the way for me but we will definitely go back. Look forward to playing it in the summer when it's warm out.
