Cahoon Plantation in Chesapeake originally opened with a 27-hole layout but it has seen a major transformation since opening. One of the nines was eliminated and the flat terrain was molded into a gently rolling championship layout. The golf course has mostly parkland holes but there are some that have a links-feel, guaranteeing that there's enough variety to please any golfer. The layout is mostly wide open with very few trees to obscure the views. Water comes into play frequently throughout the golf course and there are a few strategically placed bunkers as well. The 15th hole is Cahoon Plantation's best par 3. The green is well protected by bunkers and a small pond but there is still an opportunity for a birdie, which will probably be your last chance for one before you face the difficult closing stretch of holes.

Green grass when the local Bermuda is still brown. Some tight parallel fairways, but friendly staff and good margaritas more than compensate.

My go to course in the area. Best playing conditions year round. I just wish golf courses in general didn’t make it so hard to play a practice round by yourself. I paid for a full round, single golfer, and I understand they have to pair singles up when it is busy, but I shouldn’t have to pay $15 extra dollars to have my own cart when the other single at that time got their cart included. Furthermore, the starter let me play by myself so I paid $15 extra for nothing. I know true golfers trying to improve their game will agree, sometimes you just want to work on your game alone.

Conditions are great at this course, however every par 5 has water in front of the green preventing you from getting there in 2 unless you carry the ball 250 with a 3 wood...the greens are almost unputtable from some positions...I was in the area for two weeks and this was my worst round of golf...I shot 87 here with 34 putts but shot 72 the next day at Virginia Beach national...I guess that's golf. I hit the green on 10 about 8 feet above the hole and tapped my putt, it ended up off the green 20 feet away...that's either poor pin placement or insane green speeds

Very nice course in excellent condition when we played there back in June. Greens were true and fairways were in perfect condition. Would definitely play there again. One caution would be carful if looking for a ball in the rough as my son saw a large snake there.

Prior to playing for the first time today, I had heard the course was one of the best in Hampton Roads. The staff was very welcoming in both the pro shop, and the grill. The course was in great shape, and fairly challenging. I look forward to my next round.

Cahoon is in great condition. Tee boxes are a little chewed up but that's expected anywhere that gets heavy play. Fairways are in good shape. If lazy people would repair there divots the fairways would be perfect. Please get some sand in those bunkers. Greens are great. They roll nice.

1st time we played this course, had heard good things and we got a great deal on Golfnow. Wide open fairways, rough was thick and if you didn't follow your shot through the landing you could easily lose a few balls. Staff was very friendly, both pro shop attendants and the marshal who checked on groups on the course, after our round we spent a few minutes chatting with them, found out one was from New England as we are, picked up some info on the golf school as we are going to get our granddaughter started on the game, will definitely be back.
