Nestled in the heart of Virginia Beach, Honey Bee Golf Club is one of the area's most popular daily-fee golfing venues. Rees Jones designed the course, incorporating water on 10 holes as well as intricate bunkering throughout. The challenging layout has several tricky doglegs and some treacherous blind shots as well. It's a golf course that demands careful course management and some strategic thinking. Accurate shot placement is also key when maneuvering the rolling fairways and contoured greens. While it's by no means an easy golf course, it is an enjoyable round for players of all skill levels, making it a popular venue for tournaments and corporate outings. For golfers looking to get an entire day of golf in, Honey Bee's sister club, Stumpy Lake, is only about half a mile away.

Nice layout and condition!

Honey Bee is a nice find this year. Being new to the area I find this course open, challenging and in general well maintained. So far I've played the course about 7 times, which is more then any other course I've played in the area.

Fall is great for golf.

Decided to take the day off and play golf all day. Was spectacular, enjoyed two rounds and had lunch at Honey Bee. Greens were rough but the rest of course was awesome. .

Honey bee

Greens were very sandy and rough.
Fairways are in very good shape...
Some bunkers had a lot of water others were in decent shape.
Pace of play was pretty slow for a weekday... which is very unusual.

Save your money

Front nine closed for aeration so everyone packed onto back. Good course for casual golfer but I don't recommend it. Greens slow and grounds keeping sloppy.

Iver crowded

Got to the 6th hole. Two foursomes waiting. People in the fairway and on the green. Would have to wait 20 to 30 minutes just to hit my next ball. I left...

Holy Divots

Look, overall I will play this course again and again. But still don't care for some of the staff at the front desk and for whatever reason this year NO ONE will fix their divots. Ive never seen so many unfixed divots on these greens. I can't blame the grounds crew for this. Its just inconsiderate golfers. I'm fixing atleast 3-4 divots in my line every hole. Other than that, still my home course that I love to play.

Good small course

I got out super early and played from the gold tees. It is a very small course, 6075 yards from the gold. It's got a few challenging holes but plays pretty straight forward. A few of the gold tee boxes were unplayable due to being torn up, but at least 2 others could not be played from because the large wooden hole description boards were in the way of your shot. All in all I enjoyed my morning and would probably play it again if I was in the area.

Comfortable

played Honey Bee for the first time today while on vacation. Course was nice with some difficult holes. Greens wear slow early but as it got warmer they got much quicker. Mybonly complaint is other golfers don't repair green divots or actually any divots. Will definately play again the next time I'm here. Staff was super friendly and helpful getting us to the start of our round .

Its my home course; but staff has changed

I would really like to give this a higher rating but ever since the clubhouse staff has changed I just really can't. Its definitely not a welcoming atmosphere and main guy behind the counter always seems to have an "im better than you attitude". Look dude, its a public course and we just want to play, lose the attitude. Everything else don't have a issue with. Love the course, good concessions, and close to home.

Honey Bee status

I thought the course was in good shape... the course was actually in the bunkers trying to rake and maintain. Even had a pump going to remove water. Although, not their fault, greens had a lot of ball marks... players need to repair divots... greens are slow... not a knock! Players have to putt to the greens...
