Outstanding Course

The only thing that I regret about this course is not coming to play sooner. The course conditions were great and the layout was extremely fun. The carts had everything you need from GPS in cart, ball/club washer, and smooth riding. The staff from the club house on were friendly and helpful. Your fee also pays for range balls, so for all that you get, it’s definitely worth the money. I’ll be playing here every time I come home to visit family; one of my new favorite courses. Challenging enough so that no matter what your skill level, you can have a great time.

It's great when it's dry.

I've played here quite a few times. It's a good layout and the greens are usually pretty decent. Some of the bunkers have way too much sand but I'd rather deal with that than no sand. It can play tough from the back tees. My only complaint is it stays fairly wet and does not drain well at all. But if it hasn't rained in a week or more it's good to go. Decent practice facilities which is nice. Overall it's a nice place. Staff is always very friendly and welcoming.

Good challenge

Greens and fairways in good condition for november.
An extra 5 $ per player for range balls because we booked with GN. I was told they would have been included if I had booked directly with them....

Great value, slow play

Great course with friendly, helpful staff. Carts are GPS equipped, but unfortunately knowing pace of play was behind after 3 holes, no ranger came out to move up players. Would return again and maybe have a normal finish time.

Surprised!

I try to play a different golf course each month in my area. Just to try and play all the courses in the Hampton roads area of Virginia. If you normally pay from the white trees on most courses you’ll want to move to the blues on this one. Plays short and only used driver on the par 5’s. Will play from the blues next time. Greens are smooth and fairways are narrow. Definitely an exciting golf course.

Bad timing!

I had not played this course for over 20 years but it is still as nice as it was then! The most striking thing though, was that the clubhouse associate was very nice and thoughtful! They didn't used to be so friendly 20 years ago.

Sunday Sept 1 2019

The staff was excellent - they came to the car to pick me and my clubs up, processed me through the club house, got me to the first tee in a very professional manner as we were off. After the round we came in - they met us at the car , cleaned my clubs and we went to have a beer in the Nest. Great bar, craft brews good food...

Slow Pace of Play

We all experience slow pace of play I get it. It’s our first time playing this course. The foursome ahead of us were playing slow because the group ahead of them are slow too. We are ok with that but the thing that irritated us was the group behind was playing really during the whole round. They are always less than 150 yards behind us

There were no rangers controlling the pace of play will I play this course again? Maybe after 5 pm when it is less crowded.

Poor Quality

Need a new greens keeper. The greens were mangy on more than half the holes. Three other holes had a flag stick in the middle of the fairway. When asking to be compensated for the poor conditions I was laughed at. Would not reccomend this course for the local area. Better courses available for cheaper.

Did a lot of upgrades but haven't kept up with them and since let them go down the drain.

They’ve lost the greens

Such a shame that they have lost the greens as of late. They were in excellent shape and putting quick and true earlier in the year. Two temporary greens and several very badly damaged... no warning in the pro shop. Bummer when you are having a good round. Will wait to come back until after I hear conditions have improved.

Kiln Creek is growing on me

I’ve played Kiln Creek several times over the years. Always in solid condition. Played with a big group of guys this weekend and you can tell the heat has really gotten to some of the greens. Not the first time this has happened. They will bounce back. Place has the best greens around during the spring and fall, so I’ll def be back once they heal. But the different maker was the service and staff. Matt gave us pin sheets from their club championship to help us with the greens and was polite about letting us know about course conditions. And staff were there to meet us in the parking lot when we arrived. That’s a first. No other clubs do that around here. Carts have GPS too. No other clubs offer that either. Then to have a place like the Nest to eat after your round is def a head above the rest. I’ll be back with my regular foursome in September.

The course is in great shape.

The course and facilities are in great shape and the staff is very professional and friendly. There are new golf carts with GPS. The course and staff have come a long way in the last 5 years.
