Par 72
Length 6776 yards
Slope 130
Rating 73.3

When Hell's Point Golf Club opened in 1982, Golf Digest called it one of the best new courses and it was ranked as one of the 100 best-designed courses in the country. Renowned architect Rees Jones designed the course. He incorporated the many natural features provided by the golf course's location in the Back Bay National Wildlife Refuge. The fairways are edged with saltwater marshes and Jones included his signature sculpted bunkers along the greensides. Just a stone's throw from the ocean, the golf course is as scenic as it is challenging. The second hole is one of southeastern Virginia's toughest golf holes with out-of-bounds to the left, trees to the right, and a sloped fairway that leads to a well guarded, double-tiered green. This par 4 is the no. 1 handicap hole at When Hell's Point Golf Club.

Great layout

Course was wet due to 2 incehes if rain the day before. Other than some sogginess it’s a great course for the money. Don’t find many new courses with tree lined fairways so it’s a challenge, yet a fun track. Saw some goats and other wildlife. No houses to speak of. Good course.

Great price for the money. This is a long course where you have to hit the ball straight. Very challenging. Love this course.

Pretty course. Not in pristine condition because of all the rain over the last while. Would love to play it again when drier. Challenging holes.

Not used to Bermuda grass that would swallow your ball, but course was beautiful. Greens were a little spotty.

Bad shape

90 percent of the greens are in very bad shape, the fairways are in good shape, if you don’t hit the fairway it will take a minute to find your ball. Overall I will not play this course again. Not worth playing if you are a serious golfer.

Greens were unplayable

I loved the layout of the course. Some difficult holes. Some were beautiful. Fun to play until you got on the greens. Most of the greens were in horrible condition! Lots of bare spots, dead grass, made putting very difficult. Most of the greens were very bumpy due to lack of people not repairing their ball Mark's. Again this made putting very difficult. If course management can get the greens back in playing condition this would be a top course. Please sue some work on the carts paths. The roughness and bumps made it hard to follow the 90 degree rule.

Nice course

Older course, short and narrow, but very fun to play. Some of the greens were showing some late summer wear, and it looks like they need to be punched. I’d have liked to see a Marshall patrol, but groups were friendly and let me play through (unlike other courses in the area). Overall, I enjoyed the course. I mostly kept the driver in the bag since the course is fairly short. The cart paths/layout of the course is very neat, just bring some big spray, the mosquitoes were pretty active.

Booked the tee time with NO knowledge that only 11 holes were playable. I understand that conditions are linked to weather patterns, would've been nice to be informed.

Good Course, Conditions could be better

It's a well designed course that is very narrow so unless you hit the ball straight be prepared to take a couple of drops. The pace was okay finishing the round with 3 people in 3:45 but having to wait at times for the group in front of us. The greens were a bit slow and a lot of people failed to repair their divots. The rough was uneven but the sands were all nicely groomed.

great course - challenging from tee to green

I will definitely return when I'm back in town. My dad and I were well challenged here at HP. The course has narrower fairways with bunkers in tough places. The bunkers in the fairways and near the greens are large and well-placed. There is some real beauty on this course.

We very much enjoyed our round on a hot Monday.
