A Lot of Fun

Nice municipal course. The fairway conditions and bunkers are in less than ideal shape because of the terrible weather. It's been difficult to mow and such in the area recently due to heavy rains. But the conditions are certainly good for the price. Course has some cool holes with great variety.

Bang for Buck Muni!

Decided to play here due to a gap in schedule on a recent 3 day trip to Tidewater. Arrived at 2:00 for our afternoon round. Course is not in perfect shape, but in much better condition than I had figured for that price. Course layout is fairly simple. Greens didn't look the best but rolled true. Staff was more than helpful and went out of their way to help us with anything, including a free cart for our handicapped friend who came as well. If you are into high end uppity places, skip this, but as far as bang for the buck, this course is legit.

Much Improved

I've been playing this course off and on since Tiger Woods opened it after the reconstruction in 2003. The course was amazing then but the course conditions and greens had slowly declined to previous conditions. However, since Andy Giles has taken over as the club professional in early 2015, the course has improved tremendously and the greens are returning to their splendor of 2003. At the current pace, I expect Andy will turn this course into country club conditions within a couple more years. A short but challenging golf course.

Great course for average players

Great course for affordable price. Has some challenging holes and some very short par 4's. Still has good challenges and shot placement is forgiving here. Some of the bunkers can use upkeep. Greens are very consistent throughout the course. There are a few times it can get breezy.

Great shape and nice to see Andy Giles there

Our group had a beautiful 78° sunny day and the first face we saw when we showed up was Andy Gilesthe course couldn't ask for a better pro because Oceanview hasn't had a golf professional in 15 years and they landed one of the best there's ever been in this area.You can really see all of the improvements the new management company is doing to the pro shop and the golf course and I believe Oceanview will be back in its glory by the end of summer great job guys keep it up and will be playing there a lot.

The Worst Golf Experience Ever

I went to Oceanview Golf Course earlier today and it was a complete zoo. The new golf shop pro was excited he could actually squeeze in 135 golfers on the course at one time. Don't worry ladies and gentlemen I'll let you do the math. The starter didn't make life easier letting who ever tee off whenever they wanted. The golf pro showed zero interest on why I may have wanted my refund and certainly all he was concerned about was his money, not the satisfaction of his customers. I wouldn't recommend this course to anyone for any aspect of it and especially any real golfers. Word of the wise, stay far away from this place.

Hoppy Hoppy Greens - Slow Blitz

Let's start out by saying the greens were horrible. The balls hopped more than a tourist on a hot beach. The earliest tee time I could get was 9:36, which was 2 groups after the Blitz. I was thinking that should be good, because the Blitz golfers know the course and typically play faster than the average Joe. God, I wish Average Joe had been ahead of me. It took over 5 hours to play a par 70 course, because of the Blitz in front of us. No marshall to check the speed of play, so they just kept playing their version of the "Masters" while we have to sit in our carts and watch them measure and line up their 6 inch putts. Crazy! Anyway, to say something nice, the rest of the course was in pretty good shape. They actually had decent grass in the fairways and decent sand in the traps. Lots of sand and seed on the greens (oops, not so good there!#. Having to wait forever to play made my round not as much fun. Fortunately, I was with some good friends and the folks there treat you good. They just need to put a timer on their Blitz and do something #ever heard of "rolling" them?) with their greens!

Poor Greens

A great course if you get a deal on golfnow. Not worth the full asking price, however they do have specials sometimes through the course. Greens need improvement. Wide fairways.
