First time at this course. Course was in good shape for the time of the year. Tee boxes were very small and uneven. Other than that, I enjoyed my round here. Would play again.

Overall not bad

Considering it's January, the course wasn't in terrible shape, but definitely could've been better. Greens were very spotty and inconsistent thru course. Tee boxes were uneven and in bad shape. Staff was ok, but when I checked in they hurried us to start, only for us to wait in line at the first tee. Took us over an hour to play the first 3 holes due to 2 groups ahead of us walking and holding everyone up. Once they made the turn and let people play thru the pace improved drastically. Course layout is good for beginners.

Good municipal course

Busy day at the course but still managed to play 18 in under 4 hours. The bunkers could use some sand but the course was in good condition otherwise. Friendly staff. We will definitely play there again.

Not so hidden gem!

I have been putting off playing this course because it is over a half hour away from my home. This was obviously a mistake as I really love this course. the only real issue I have with it is the lack of sand in the bunkers and a couple soggy fairways. I will definitely be playing here often especially with the condition of the course in the winter time being so good.

Greens were very slow and not kept well. Needed mowed at most places. But had some interesting holes with water.

Muni track - get what you pay for

the greens are slow and shaggy, the fairways need a hair of work. Its a local muni in VA beach, its not super long and it pretty tight with a ton of water for a muni. If you go in expecting a $35 course, you'll get your money worth, if you expect a gem, this is not for you.

Me and a couple of my buddies had a great time playing in the course but the cart guy right before the first tee was beyond rude for no reason.

Fairways and greens need some help

Positives: The staff were friendly and made every one in our group feel welcome. Pro shop also accommodated one of our players so he could play after his spot was sold on GN. When we arrived we couldn't use the practice green because it was being cut, but the practice areas seemed adequate. Negatives: The course layout is very tight, especially the back 9. The fairways on the front 9 were terrible. I felt like I was hitting off 2nd cut rough in most fairways. The fairways were slightly better on the back 9. Almost all the greens had major amounts of divots on them. I had to fix at least 2-3 divots each time I made a putt. The pace of play was okay for us, but there were a high number of walkers which could slow play for others. I paid $26 for a 7am weekday tee time which I felt was fair considering the condition of the course.
