Needs upkeep

Obvious lack of money to maintain a good layout. Bunkers are overgrown and unplayable - they haven’t seen a rake in months. Greens have been punched and are very bumpy. Grass needs to be cut around greens.
The Hornet course is in better shape than Tomcat but that’s not saying much.
They would be better off trying to mss as I rain one 18 instead of having two poor courses.

Horrible bunkers

Bunkers are in horrible shape. I think they were harder than the cart path. A few of them had what looked like black mold growing in them.

Good practice course

Super easy layout, in fact I shot my career low. The course is pretty much thrashed. Many greens had large dirt patches. However, for an afternoon of just practicing your game on the cheap, it can't be beat. I will play again.

This course was not the best.

The greens were not taken care of. Fairway was very rough as well, there were bare/dead spots all over. Ball cleaners didn't have water or cleaning solution in them. Did not see the beer cart for 18 holes. Staff was very friendly though and it is a nice course layout.

Drainage needed

The Tomcat course at Aero Pines on Naval Air Station Oceana is the original course that I have been playing for over 30 years. Even though they rebuilt the course about 5 years ago, the Tomcat has drainage problems. I waited for two days after a significant rain storm and the greenside bunkers still had a lot of water in them and hard sand. The fairways need a lot of attention due to bare spots. The greens were in good shape and the course played well unless you got in a bunker and had to drop just to play.
