Generally nice course

First time playing the course. It was a generally nice course. The water isn’t in play most of the time. Fairways generally wide open. Rough is short, greens rolled well. It’s a good course but not something to blow you away

Play this course with GOLFNOW.

I live near the course and my Sunday morning GOLFNOW price was a steal. The course is surrounded by minimum 5000 square foot homes so the setting is easy on the eyes. Dodlegs, water, hazards, and length options make it challenging but fair.

Nice Course Starter & Locals Could Learn Some Manners

First for the course. Layout was nice, the greens and fairways were in good condition. Our foursome had a good time playing as it was challenging enough from the back tees for the guys and played much easier from the white tees for our wives.

As for the starter we had a foursome booked for 8:00 am and we were sent off early. Maybe here it is common practice to send out a set of twosomes right behind a foursome without combining them but we immediately had people on our tail after the first whole. We let 2 separate sets of 2 play through before we reached the 5th hole. Upon making the turn the starter said to our wives that you girls need to pick it up because we were behind the pace which we couldn't understand because once the twosomes had passed us we were having to wait a few seconds for them two clear the greens. It became obvious that the locals felt that our wives were playing slow even though we finished the round in 4:15. Comments were made by people who had finished or were waiting to the effect that women should not be allowed on the course before 12pm. We didn't let the boys club ruin our day but it was disappointing.

Horrible greens

The greens and tee boxes should be in much better condition for the amount they are charging.

Fabulous 18-holes

1st time playing here, great course! Tee boxes and greens in good shape (ladies too). Overall course played well. 80 degrees and sunny and not at work. Who could ask for anything else? Would definitely come back to play here when I'm down by the beach.

Great golf

This course is full of challenges from any tee box. The set up is great for all handicaps. The firm fast greens are great. I truly enjoyed playing this course.

Great course in great shape.

I really love this course, lots of great holes. The fairways, tees and greens were all in great shape. The pace of play was not bad, 4 hours and 45 minutes on Fathers day. It would have been better but the group in front us got a little behind. But the marshal was trying to move them along so they were doing the best they could. I do agree with one of the other reviewers though, the really is no restrooms out on the course so it can't get uncomfortable for some golfers. I know I couldn't bring my wife. It seems like an easy fix to put a couple of port a potties out there. Especially with all the houses around. That's the only thing I can ding them on. overall a great place to play.

Great course in Virginia Beach

I've been playing different courses in the area for the last 4 weeks and as it stands so far, Heron Ridge was in the best shape overall. Great fairways, greens, bunkers and Tee boxes. The only issue is there were no restrooms on the course and no beverage cart was seen our entire round. Note: our tee time was 2:56 if that would make a difference on the beverage cart. My hat is off to the Superintendent and crew.

5272015 Heron Ridge

I always like playing at Heron Ridge. It is a good challenge with open fairways and it caters to players that fade their ball.

We had a sunny day in the 80's. Greens were moderately quick, fairways had a good roll to them and the course is picturesque as well.

A few of the holes are blind shots where you can't see the green. Just hit as straight as you can. Number 18 needs your shots to stay to the right because there is water on the left that comes in to the fairway more than people think.

Recommended for all player levels.

Great Golf Course

Enjoyed the course. Greens are smooth bent grass. Fairways are dormant Bermuda Grass but just coming out of hibernation. Well maintained and a great value for the money...check out twilight & super twilight rates!

One of my favorites.

The course goes in and out of that US Open and British Open type feel. A lot of wide open fairways where the wind can grab you and then you have some tree lines holes. Wide fairways, true greens, well protected greens at that also. Look for the Eagle behind the 3rd green if it's still there. Favorite holes is and will always be the par 5 13th. If you can catch that slope off the tee look for a mid to scoring iron to the green.

Mr. Peddro Crump

The course was in good shape and played well. I like the course and this was the second time that I had played the course. This course is for the mid range player and the better players. Its a course that has everything that you want in a good quality course.

Slow play no Marshall's.

Grouchy desk staff at checkin. Terribly slow play by one group that was 3 holes ahead of us. We skipped 3 holes on the bak side and never saw another soul. No Marshall's,will not play here again at any price.

Slow and Boring

Was scheduled to play 18 holes but it took 2 1/2 hours to complete the front 9. If the course was keeping me entertained I would of stuck it out, but the course was a bore. Course is flat with small greens and just nothing to the design. If you value your money spend it elsewhere.
