I play golf in Virginia 5 days a week . I play here about 4 or 5 times a year. It is truly a treat to play here! What a wonderful and chalanging golf course. My wife who hates golf wants to move here it is that beautiful!

My last trip I played in early June on a Monday afternoon late in the day, I am not kidding when I say that I was one of 3 cars in the parking lot (the others being staff members). I to this day cannot figure out why, if you are anywhere close to the area take the time to go play this course. I have only had maybe 1 or 2 other golfing experiences that even come close. This course is first class, and worth twice what you pay to play it. There is nothing I could put as a negative. Staff, maintenance, and difficulty are exceptional on all levels. They truly go above and beyond most courses. The Tides Inn is also a first class resort, I have been going there for close to 30 years now, and had my wedding reception there. If you pair this golf experience with a stay at the Inn you will want to return yearly. Also if you have time be sure to eat at the Inn, Sandpiper, and Lee's.

Although I live in SW Virg., any year when I do net get to play this beautiful, traditional course is missing something. Not a course for beginners! But if you can break 100, come on out to play it!! There are many tough holes, but NONE are unfair, a real rarity compared to most recent designs. Every time I have played it (about 12 times, in different seasons) it has been in great shape. My advice is to play AWAY from the corners of doglegs .. it will open up the hole for the 2nd shot.

The Golden Eagle is a challenging, beautifully maintained golf course. We have played many times as guests of the Tides Inn. There are many elevation changes and water features. This course is a great day trip for anyone in coastal Virginia about an hours drive from Virginia Beach. For the beauty and challenge of the course, the greens fees were right in line with similar courses. We look forward to this course each August. Nice clubhouse and good food at Captain Bs after your round. The golf course is about 2 miles from the Tides Inn itself.
