About

Holes 18
Par 71
Length 6159
Slope 122
Rating 69.5
Type Semi-Private
Chesapeake Golf Club sits tucked away in the idyllic village of Las Gaviotas, conveniently situated just 15 minutes from downtown Norfolk. Boasting some of the best greens in the Tidewater area, the club offers the amenities of a private club with the fees of a public golf course. The layout will challenge you with rolling fairways and tricky doglegs. Water hazards come into play frequently so be prepared for a few intimidating blind shots over water. Mature trees line the rolling fairways and there are also strategically placed bunkers lurking along the greensides. The manageable 6,278-yard length is approachable for beginners yet there are still holes that long hitters will enjoy. Chesapeake Golf Club is a course that will test your skills but it's not overly punishing for the high handicapper.

Good course for the value

Early morning tee time is optimal. We were a two-some and we're allowed to play thru. Finished course in 3.0 hours. Lots of water!

Great course for the cost

Fun course, very interesting layout. Good condition course, it had just rained and even when it was wet it was still fun to play. greens vary from huge to tiny and is quite challenging. I will definitely be returning to play.

It's OK

The course is OK. Decent greens. Good value for the money. I'd play it again, but it wouldn't be my first choice. I'll leave it at that.

Great greens!

Although it has an unusual layout, the course was in really good shape, particularly the greens. I'd play it again!

Played this course many times . Has some holes that most golfers don’t like . Course was in good shape . Greens were good just rolled a little to slow to my llikeing . Never saw a Marshall all day.. No beverage kart ..looks to me they are cutting back on staff. Pro was taking greens fees and pulling karts.
