Chesapeake Golf Club
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.

Wet and soggy!
Drives and approach shot would plug in the fairways and around the greens. Greens were in good shape and rolled really well.
Everything are fine except some fairways are soft ground because of rains but besides that all are good especially around green
Course has drained well
Considering the amount of rain we've had, I was surprised at how the course wasn't completely saturated. In the past that has been an issue at times. Great day for Golf!
Management insisted on cart sharing in spite of Covid-19 guidelines that are in place. Start times were a joke as they were sending people out every 3-4 minutes, which caused things to stay backed-up the entire round. Tee boxes were over grown. Will not play there again!
If you would of booked your tee time with us instead of a hotdeal we would of told you that carts are based upon availability. The same that was told to you at the counter. You showed up for a 9:58 tee time at 9:41 and your partner showed at 9:47, then you being mad you decide to walk and didn’t check in with my starter till 10:06 and teed off at 10:11, you played the first 11 holes in 2 hours and 27 minutes. And at the turn you decide to load up with you friend and ride the last 7 holes.
Great Golf Day at CGC
Course was in excellent condition. Greens were fast, but true. Carts were cleaned and sanitized, so bonus. Plenty of carts to help with social distancing. Playing again next week.
This Place is a goat track and poorly run. Greens are ok, fairways are patchy and not well maintained. Good luck finding a flat spot or decent patch of grass on the tee boxes. I’m not real sure how people gave so many 4-5 star reviews. I Paid for 18 holes and came in after 9 for a rain check. There was a large storm moving in, the winds picked up and it was starting to spit rain. We looked at the radar and decided we didn't want to get stuck in it. When I asked the pro shop attendant he tossed his hands in the air sarcastically turned around and looked out the window and said "IS IT RAINING?!?" I started laughing thinking he was joking and said yea it's starting to sprinkle and not looking good out there or on the radar. He stated "I still have a bunch of guys out there, I can't give you a rain check unless it's raining!"
I worked at golf courses for 4 years. We never questioned someone who asked for a rain check for an impending storm or really any other reason. It brings back golfers and business to your course. Won't be coming back to this dump! Thanks!
Thank You for the 4-Star Rating!
Great course...we will return
My son and I really enjoyed the course. The layout was nice the greens were in great shape, and it is obvious the fairways will be beautiful in just a few weeks.
Thank You for the EXCELLENT 5-Stars!!!!
Awesome shape for January, greens were fantastic...
Thank You so much for the outstanding 5-Stars!!!
Expected this course to be played a bit.....but it was pristine!
For the money this course is nothing short of amazing I'm still trying to get below 100 but I'll take A 106 on 4th of July.
Family was out of town and I had no one to T off with but decided on this course due to being in close to home and it did not disappoint the staff was great and very informative for 1st time golfer who said he doesn't play much they give me a course book and told me about the course and how much it normally cost online versus their website it simply was great thank you
First and most likely last round
I had high hopes after seeing such positive reviews and playing other disappointing courses that Chesapeake would be my go to course in VA beach. However the course was in awful shape and was like playing on a goat pasture. I will say the greens were in decent shape to say the least but I've just wondered if any course at all in VA beach is in good condition. Range was limited to irons only which was a disappointment but had a chipping green to make up for it. Overall I wouldn't pay more than $25 for a round of golf here unless there are major renovations to the course.
Besides the guy in the pro shop
(In a nut shell: Course was fun and challenging (lots of water). Well cut fairways, perfect greens (they play slow), and beautiful sand traps. Group sizes don’t matter and pace of play isn’t monitored )
This place has it almost all together except for the grumpy old man at the counter of the pro shop and the cart paths are terrible. This guy was absolutely no help. Told him it was my first time here and asked which cart to take and where the first tee was. With a half heart attempt to point out the window he snarled “out there” and slid me my recipe with my tee time on it. With seeing he was a man of few words I proceeded to “out there” and figured it out for myself.
After figuring out the order of carts I grab one and load my clubs. Luckily there is a small sign that points you across the road to the 1st tee. As we head across the road we come upon three men with three carts chipping on the practice green. These gentlemen inform us there where next. As they where waiting on a foursome to tee off. Not a problem we joined in a line with our cart. By the time me and my teammate reach the tee box I look behind us and there is almost a 100yrd long line behind us of mostly individuals in carts no matter the size of their group. This lets me know there is no order to tee times, groups sizes, or any organization to anything for that matter. Luckily a group of 5 retreat to the “back 7” and start there. Yes you heard that right. And some just chose to skip around and play in what ever order that wasn’t crowded which in turned caused more crowding.
There is no marshal so group size or pace of play is not regulated or monitored. The turn is at 12th so you have a “front 11” and a “back 7”. absolutely the roughest cart paths in the world. These paths weave you in and out of traffic crossing multiple roads. At one point traveling down a road and through an intersection. Paths that dead end, switch back, and round abouts that could confuse the most observant of us all. It felt like this course layout could have came from a giant boggle game.
On the good side decent fairways, great design of each hole, well placed hazards to keep it challenging, beautiful greens and wonderful dog legs left and right. I did enjoy playing this course just wish I would have had more junk balls for all those water hazards. Had the bbq sandwich that was good . Compared to some other courses around the beer was a good price and even had a few cigars on hand to choose from. All in all it was a good time but still 50/50 on ever coming back.
I'm so sorry about everything in the pro-shop. That's not how we treat our customers. And pride our self on customer service. Please send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
Greens were great, very challenging slopes. My only critique for the money is that the tee boxes were long. Tough to feel good over a tee shot when the grass eats up your tee
Overall good experience
Thank You for the 4-Stars!! Tee's have been mowed :)
Great day to play
We had the course toniuraelv a almost. It was a great round, I just couldn't hit the ball.
Thank for for the 5-Stars!!!!!!!!
