Maybe the best golf course i have ever played! The course is in perfect condition and the scenery is fantastic. It's a very difficult course with well placed bunkers and water hazards and fast greens. It for sure is a course where you will need to focuse and hit it accurately from the tee to the green. I would definently reccomend this course to anyone looking for a challenge and a great round of golf!

One of the best courses around. Developer Dickie Foster is known for making his customers feel like royalty. The entrance alone let's the golfers know this is an experience, not just a round of golf. Beautiful club house, supercool driving range just feet from the restaurant.

Many holes are right along the Chesapeake Bay and the breeze and the scenery makes me feel so good every time I'm there. Lot's of water mixed in, immaculate greens. They have those GPS carts which are quite fun.

Price is expectedly $80 or so most days but good rates for twighlight. Those of us coming from Virginia Beach have to pay the toll but frankly, driving across the bridge-tunnel is so beautiful it's part of the experience.

I've played there a couple of times, to include a high-end private tournament. Each time I play, I feel very good about the use of my time and money. Possibly one of my favorite courses.

Be accurate!

Fescue is diabolical if inaccurate
