Hell's Point Golf Club
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.

True greens .....not
The course layout is great but green are not true and very slow. Green condition are not up to what they use to be.
this course has a great layout but do not play this course if there has recently been a heavy rain because water gathers between holes and on the cart path and every other where you can think of. This course is literally in a swamp.
Great Layout, but very wet!!
This is a great course but don't play after a big rain. Water standing everywhere!!
Nice course . . .
Nice course that winds through marshland. No houses on the course. Even though the course was lined by wetlands, there were ample fairways so that it did not feel like target golf. Bunkers define the holes very well. Great variety between holes, short and long, straight and dog legs right hland left. Greens were in good shape, which was nice because they are bent grass. Putted well. The bunkers were awesome. In terms of defining where to hit you are tee shot and where to not hit your approach shot. Luckily I did not go into any of them so at cannot speak to how they played.
Poor course management.
On a busy Sunday of a holiday weekend they sent foursomes out every 9 minutes vice normal 14 minutes and also allowed a single player to go out. Very poor course management by club pro and starter, even when we called after excessive delays they refused to admit mistakes and offer apology. I would not recommend this course.
I like the course with moderate challenge.
Very disappointed n the condition
We hadn’t played Hells Point in some time, and were big fans of the course. Great layout. Today the condition was pathetic!
Greens were horrible.. fairways pretty good. Tee boxes poor.
I love the course but was very, very disappointed today.
This course needs better upkeep
The pace of play was horrendous. We had to tell three groups of three to go in front of us because they wanted to play at 20 mph and force us to play quickly. The course greens are terrible and need to be rolled weekly. Also there where major trees down that need to be taken care of. The only thing good is the practice greens and the snack bar prices. Would be better if they had a martial out telling people to stop pushing groups and when to tee off its ridiculous.
Great course! They need to work the greens! Potential of being the best golf course of Virginian Beach?!!! Thank you staff!
Great golf course
The course was in good shape some of the greens need a little work but over all for the money it's a must play
Considering the hurricane...
When I called in the morning, I was told it would be back 9 only due to Hurricane Dorian coming through the previous day. By the time we teed off @ 2pm, the entire 18 was available to play. Taking that into consideration, the course was in amazing shape with so much debris cleared and out of the way; we had a great time.
Staff was extremely friendly and accommodating.
The course is in very condition except for a few tee boxes and a couple of greens which are in good condition. The fairways are not overly wide and tree lined so important to keep the ball in play. Any ball off the fairway/second cut will be most likey be unplayable even if it can be found. The greens are not overly large. If you want a good challenge this course is for you! Fun to play and would definately go back!
To much water here.
This was my first time here. We were asked to play of the tenth tee because there was a number of four balls in front . Everything was fine until, we tried to play the second half of the course from the first tee. It was completely jammed solid with a beginner and his small son. The adult miss hit the ball three times of the tee and there was four ball in front then there was rain coming on, so pretty disappointed in my days golf and called it a day after nine holes. Most courses I have played would have offered a free nine holes or complimentary for another day .but no kind offer made.
Course needs TLC
Understand that we've had alot of rain lately, but the greens were in poor conditions at best. Alot of dead spots all over, parts of greens had turned into mud. Tee boxes were extremely long and bunkers loomed as if all the sand had been removed with weeds, grass, and gravel throughout them. Fairways and rough were in good shape, but for $50 a person, some love needs to be put into the course.
