About

Holes 18
Type Semi-Private
Par 71
Length 6159 yards
Slope 122
Rating 69.5

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.

Very good course

Played this course with a friend on the 4th of July weekend. The course was busy but play was steady. The course was in great shape. We played the round in under 4 hours. This course has several holes with water that you may need to lay up, depending on your skill level. We will be back.

Good price / Great Value.

First time playing in VA Beach area. It was a very enjoyable round. The course was in much better shape than what I’m used to and for less $. IMHO , the greens couldn’t be any better. I would definitely return to play again when I’m in the area.

Great Shape and Experience

It has been a few years since I played this course but it is in great condition currently. They have clearly put time and money into this course and it shows. It’s a fun course with some easy birdie opportunities and some other challenging holes so a nice mix. The staff was very friendly and I would definitely recommend for anyone playing in the area.

Great Round Today

I haven’t played this course in probably 10 years, simply because it’s not very convenient for where I live. I was looking for a change of scenery, and GolfNow had a good rate so I gave it a shot. I was very impressed with the course. It wasn’t crowded at all, and the course was in great shape- probably the smoothest greens I’ve played in a while. I’d highly recommend it!

Great Condition

The fairways were filled in nicely with fresh Bermuda. They will get more plush as the time passes. But the greens were perfect. They rolled true, not bumpy. Medium speed.

Great Conditions

Course was in great shape. It's refreshing to see a course repainting markers, getting sandtraps ready, etc. Amazing how many nice days on some courses you see no workers and the course in need of repairs.

Money worth and chalenging feeling

First time came here. Nice course. Very well maintained greens.
The layout is somehow challenging.
Fantastic weather. I had a wonderful afternoon here.
The staff is friendly. At the beginning I was asked to join threesome group. But I was called to start my shot alone in the end.

Had not played there in some time. Water really comes into play if you're not a long hitter. It made things pretty challenging for me.
Enjoyed the course. For early March, it was in great shape

Funky Course

Funky Course with lots of water to shoot over...holes 2, 4, 6, 7, 10 & 15... Houses close to fairway. Had a 70 degree day in Feb so played. Muddy & cart path only. Greens were in decent shape. Still had fun.
