What with the Staff

I have played this course many times and have never experienced what I did this last visit. It was sad to witness. During the check in staff was rude and asked questions about my groups attie. Of which I didn't answer. Also asked questions on my reservation. That I also didn't answer besides the number in my previous paid group. Then there was the starter, who seemed to has issues with almost every thing we did. Placing clubs in carts was an issue until he said to. Hello, grown folks here. He made such an issue of a twosome ahead of us being a few minutes late that his performance outside his shack made us late for our tee time. It wasn't that serious and we resolved it .
The staff on this day was a really bad representation of the customer service i was accustomed to at this facility and I thick I'll give Newport News GC a time out!. It's not the only course in the area and when your spending good money no matter how much you want to feel welcomed and appreciated.

Just decent

I cannot say that I loved playing here today because the fairways were simply too uneven! Other than that it is a nice course!

Always a good time

It's always a good day playing Newport News GC. it had rained the day before and was 90 degrees. But the course is in good shape and the pace was fine. I will definently return for more rounds. Great prices on TEE OFF will make that possible.

Good value,,decent course

In visiting Williamsburg area from Michigan I have played two courses and detected higher prices in this area. But deer run course was filled with 12 deer that seemed to enjoy the course. I golfed with myself and moved quickly. I was offered the other course but it was much busier. The workers were all friendly and kind.
