Course Reviews

Difficult course in good shape. Ground was a little wet in spots but even the soft greens putted true. Hard to beat at this price point in va beach. Wish we saw the cart girl more (1st and 8th hole).

One of the best public courses in all Virginia Beach. The greens are in good shape the fairways are cut regularly and the scenery is great. I would recommend playing here if you are visiting the area.

This is a Fred Couples signature course that opened about 10 years ago. Very challenging and well maintained. Nice driving range. Pretty tacky that they charged me $5 for a bucket of practice range balls after just paying $70 for a round. Beautiful course. Greens were very tricky - some played slow, others fast. Play was fast. Our foursome finished in 4 hours with an 8 am start. Clubhouse is average at best. I would play again.

Very challenging course with some wicked pin placements. Every 2-3 holes has a scenic change. Some holes have houses but very few come into play. A definite recommended course to play. Club house grill is just average, drink and eat elsewhere.

Compared to overpriced neighboring courses, this is a steal. A great layout with a distinctive links look that plays tough. The holes are all very unique and enjoyable to play. Conditions were superb despite the low water this summer here. Will be back when in the area again before I'd play the rest around here. Only downside is the course distances are not very well marked, including if you buy the yardage book.

Heron Ridge golf course

My cousin Bob and I played Heron Ridge on the afternoon of 02/23/07 (the off season). It was the last course on our two day jaunt to Virginia Beach from upstate N.Y.. We couldn't have picked a better way to end it. Heron Ridge was our favorite of the four courses we played. The course gives you a taste of most everything. Some holes are links style and others more parkland style. It was windy as heck on the day we played, but some of the lower holes gave us a respite by providing a shelter belt of trees. There is a nice amount of elevation change too. The course is well laid out and flows smoothly. Everything gels together to make this one BEAUTIFUL course. It is also VERY reasonably priced. Rumor has it that the managing company for Heron Ridge has won the bid to take over TPC @ Virginia Beach as well. If so, the TPC can only get better.

very nice course

Great course for the money. Very well kept up. One of the best courses I have played at.
