The greens were not taken care of. Fairway was very rough as well, there were bare/dead spots all over. Ball cleaners didn't have water or cleaning solution in them. Did not see the beer cart for 18 holes. Staff was very friendly though and it is a nice course layout.

The Tomcat course at Aero Pines on Naval Air Station Oceana is the original course that I have been playing for over 30 years. Even though they rebuilt the course about 5 years ago, the Tomcat has drainage problems. I waited for two days after a significant rain storm and the greenside bunkers still had a lot of water in them and hard sand. The fairways need a lot of attention due to bare spots. The greens were in good shape and the course played well unless you got in a bunker and had to drop just to play.
