Golfers in the Virginia Beach area are fortunate to have a place like Hampton Roads Golf Clubs, which features seven diverse golf courses for players of all levels and tastes. Golf courses designed by Robert Trent Jones and his son Rees Jones are part of the lore here. From Cypress Point C.C., the priciest of the courses, to Owl's Creek Golf Course, the least expensive and ideal for seniors, women, children and players looking for a quick round, Hampton Roads Golf Clubs has you covered.
Virginia Beach's resorts, parks and Atlantic shorelines have made it a holiday hotspot for American families for decades. Now the area is also welcoming its fair share of golfers. With fair year-round weather and ample Southern charm, not to mention some must-play courses designed by names like Palmer, Dye, Couples and Nicklaus, Virginia Beach is an ideal destination for golf enthusiasts.
The words "playable by all levels" or "generous fairways" usually don't come to mind when describing a Pete Dye golf course. But those are descriptions you can believe when it comes to Virginia Beach National. This former TPC course has some typical Dye features, but lacks the sharp edge found on many of his courses.
