Rating 73.3
Type Semi-Private/Resort
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.

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.

Misinformed

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.

Nice layout

Have played Hells Point for many years. Course is always a little wet. Need to stay in fairway not a lot of room for errors. Greens were nice and green, just rolled way to slow to my liking. I think normal price for weekend rates are a little to high for this course. Thanks golf now.

Start at your tee time, or earlier, or just when ever you want

Tee time was 0930. Starter had everyone starting on hole 9 to give the first 9 a relief from people just playing 9 holes. On the tee box of our first hole. Pair pulls up behind us. I asked what was their tee time and they said 1000. By hole our second hole stuck behind a threesome. By hole four asked threesome if our twosome could play thru. They said a 5 person group ahead of them was holding them thinks up. We drove past a 3 person, 5 person, 2 person, 2 person, 4 person and another 5 person group. Skipped holes 5 thru 9 and moved to the front nine to get a decent pace of play. Starter was present but no control of start times and no marshall controlling on course play. If you play here make sure course times are wide open based on lack of control. I’ve played here several times. I enjoy the course but it was a free for all this last time.

My husband and I really enjoyed the course. The staff was friendl

The day we went it was after it had rained for many days, so some fairways had lots of water, no cars on the fairway

But it was still a great round of golf. We can't wait to play there again tomorrow, and Friday, and I will be able to give you a better view of the course.

We just love golf. Period

Very wet

Course was very wet not my idea for a course this good. Tee box looks bad enough to be a municipal course! Layout was good but condition was dreadful!. I’m from Maryland and the courses drain much better.
