As of November 5, 2018 Cahoon Plantation Golf Course closed for business indefinitely. Not being able to meet finance obligations has been indicated as the primary reason for Cahoon closure.

I can see why this course once attracted a 4 star rating, but not now! But it is in a shocking state. Early October they have jumbo tined the greens, closed on egreen and closed the back nine. The fairways are rutted and bare in places worst course I have played in a long long time. Bad value at $35 . their excuse is that the Greens supervisor died in the summer, regretable but no excuse.

What a good layout and challenging course. The course was in great shape and the price of $39 for a morning weekday was very good. The staff was friendly and welcomed this Texan very nicely. The food at the grill was good. Two foursomes allowed me to play through them and offered a few pointers to me about the course which made my round even more enjoyable. I would highly recommend this course to anyone visiting the tidewater area.

Being a golfer for "alot" of years, I have visited all the courses in probably a 100 mile radius over those years. There are many courses in the Chesapeake area but would have to agree that Cahoon is a standard to which others should strive to meet. No matter what time of year I have found the course to be in great shape. "Keep the ball in the fairway" and there are no bad shot locales. Greens have been in great shape. Insurgence of Condo's, etc. could become a problem but doesnt deter from the game itself there. I would recommend this course to anyone, anytime of year. Price wise, it is on the top end of other courses comparatively. But again, a lower price course may not be as beautiful and "friendly as this one. You must weigh the options yourself.

The entire course is bent grass which makes for great play even in the winter. I recommend that you play this course should won't be disappointed. Yes, the one downer is the number of condos and homes that are now going in, it is changing the scenery.

In reference to pete. Just a couple of items that should be brought to your attention. The Ball washers for the course are located on all of the golf carts out at Cahoon Plantation. The tee markers in my opinion are very unique and really are not a concern being steel or whatever they are. I would agree the staff are very inviting and professional. There are still vistas to be seen out at Cahoon Plantation, even with condos going up around the course. Those condos do not come into play except on hole #2. Credit to them for building a golfing community in Chesapeake, where all likes of people from young to old can play and feel a part of something. I know you played in January, but the course conditions in the winter still pass the conditions of any other course in the area. The Pro shop is a little dense, but again its winter, most course do not have alot of stock or merchandise out and or available at this time due to prepareing for the upcoming golf season. I urge you Pete to be eager to play there again, its my favorite course and if you give it another try I bet you will change your mind.

First time out. Cahoon Plantation is an interesting and sometimes challenging links style course. It has beautiful, winding, hilly, concrete cart paths. It looked great with consideration of the fact that it is January when we played. There are some great water holes.

The staff was helpful and inviting. The Marshall was the best I have encountered. He was attentive and really worked to maintain proper pace of play. (There was a foursome of betting members in front of us who several times brought everyone to a grinding halt as they lingered on the green. He quickly got them moving and kept them moving the rest of the round.)

Cahoon Plantation used to be three nine-hole courses. Several years ago, they got rid of one of the nines and combined the other two (the Union Jack and the Saltire) to form an 18-hole course. Hence if you use a sky caddie you are out of luck. sky caddie and GolfLink both have inaccurate information on layout.

Some incidentals: No ball washers. The Tee Markers are painted steel, I guess. Depending on your line of sight, they disappear when viewed directly from the side -- making them hard to find. I would suggest angling them slightly “/ \” in the Tee box to be better seen. Also several of the Tee boxes are quite a trek from the cart path. On one occasion, I think it was on the 10th, the white tees were a good 20 yards from the path. This could be a problem for older, less capable walkers particularly given the hilly layout. The pro shop was the smallest I have seen and had a limited selection. Lastly they use gas carts. They are very noisy, distracting to others, and can give you quite a jar when starting out.

In my humble opinion, this course is on the short track to being ruined with new condo construction. Everywhere you look they are cutting inroads and putting up condos. At the moment, there are condos surrounding the property, but there is apparently a huge push to put up condos in the center of the course. This is a huge mistake as this will take away many of the long vistas that would have made this course truly unique to the area.

I would play Cahoon Plantation again, but admittedly, it is not a course to which I would rush back.

VERY nice course!

The only thing I can ding the course for is the green fee. That said I play here every chance I get. I don't think any course around keeps their course in better shape. Hmmmm, maybe that's why it costs a little more! A links course, this course is always green and the putting greens are normally in great shape. Nice new club house, pro shop and restaurant. The info on this site is a little dated. There is now one 18 hole course. A negative: Homes, townhomes and condos are going up all around it although I have seen worse on local courses.
