Very good course, the grounds are kept in great shape. If your a first time visitor the booklet with the course map is need very much. Will play on again.

This is a really nice golf course. Staff is friendly and helpful. Greens had consistance speed and the layout was fun! First time playing and will be playing again.

Even after the recent tornado tragedy, these guys have kept a jewel in tact. You cannot beat the scenery. The greens are nice and fast. The clubhouse has a majestic, sweeping view fronting a generous practice facility. As for the course, I find it plays as well as your game -- meaning if it is off, and you are missing fairways, you will be penalized with few scrambling opportunities, but if it is on, the course and greens are more than fair and will reward you. I have played it about 5 times now and have to place it in my top 2 or 3 among courses on that side of the James River.

Strong Course

The course has changed its hole procession on the back nine which has caused some confusion on this page.
The course is well maintained and offers a variety of tees to provide a range of difficulty options. Several holes run along the river and are beautiful. No two holes are the same. I have found the staff to be friendly and accomodating. The course drains well and unlike many courses in the area does not have much slow play. This is one of the best courses in the Hampton Roads area.

Very Nice Course - Great Value

While the holes shown here bear little resemblance to the actual course today I love playing here. Mistakes are mostly on the back nine. Examples: 15 is a par 3 not a 4, 16 is a par 4 not a 3, 17 is a par 4 not a par 5 and there aren't two greens to rotate any more, and 18 is a par 5 not a par 4. There is a Bald Eagle that is normally hanging out near the green on Three or; if not there can be seen soaring around or chasing Ospreys. I love the peninsula green on 17. I feel the rates for this course are a good value and typically the course is in good shape. I play here at least weekly.
