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.

Great course bad staff member

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.

Summer course conditions

Lack of rain made the fairways rock hard with lots of extra roll. Same with the tee boxes. Greens were in decent shape as they have been watering them consistently. Bunkers don’t really have sand, more dirt than anything else. Pace of play was good. Our group of three finished in well under 4 hours. An interesting course. The front nine is pretty wide open whereas the back nine requires a bit more accuracy.

Great value, nice staff nice course

First time I came here with my family.
We only had two bags, the staff kindly provided two more bags without extra charge.
The course layout is somewhat challenging.
Today is holiday. The bookings are a little packed. Might try another time. Awesome experience.

Get what you pay for. I’m an average golfer and think the course condition is fair enough for its price

Needs to Cut Down Some Trees

The course is OK. A lot of tee boxes have difficulty keeping grass because of too many trees. The 15th hole is foolish from the current tee box since the trees overhang and make a shot with any sort of elevation impossible. Overall, the course is fair and OK, but is silly in spots. For $25, it should generally meet expectations.

A cool day. Driving range is in poor shape and is limited to a 5 iron or less. Fairways rolled long and the greens were very fast.

Nice tight layout with challenging water.

Challenging but fair. Most hazards come into play only if you are aggressive. Good course with friendly people.
