Cold morning

When my partner and I arrived for our 9:12 tee time, we were told that the putting green and course were in a frost delay. We did not have an opportunity to loosen up after months of not playing. We finally teed off and found the course much improved from last year. It was obvious that the greens had been completely overhauled. It took us by surprise at how fast they ran now. After the front nine, we finally settled in and had adjusted to the change. The back nine was a lot warmer and speed of play was not a problem. Overall the course is much better than I previous years. Mike has done a great job improving the greens.

Best course for a budget

I live right up the road from kempsville and it’s definitely my favorite time waster because of how cheap 9/18 are. There’s been a few times we’ve got behind walkers from 9 - 12:30 which kinda sucks but they’ve usually let us play through. Overall great course.

I'm handicapped

The course was cart path only on Tuesday. I'm handicapped and can only play 90 degrees. It hadn't rained in 2 days and I thought the course would be okay. I got there to late to cancel.

There’s Much Better

Been here three times, but after the last trip, I’m done. Guy at the first hole was smoking cigs and throwing butts on the tee boxes, didn’t know I was supposed to check in with him so he gave me attitude for not stopping to tell him I was playing. Then he stops my wife mid swing to say she can’t golf without her own set, which no one had ever told me either other time I’ve been there. Followed us for three holes to make sure my wife didn’t play, then went back to smoking on the first tee. Got back to the clubhouse and asked when the policy changed, to which they said it’s always been that way. Didn’t offer a refund or a discounted future round, just said “Well, we have rental clubs.” so I know that the rule only exists because they’re greedy. I’ll hit balls into the side of my house before I go back.

greens are really coming in good

Afternoon play before getting dark. Played only 9. Front nine very straight minimal hazards. Back nine is where all the real water can get you. The new greens are really coming in good still work to be done in tee boxes not so great. The course is convenient for me

OK

Layout is nice. Tee boxes are a disaster! Several holes have a hitting mat that you can't even put a tee into!

The staff really needs to start doing a better job controlling the pace of play. B LLC

My group was asked to let the foursome behind go ahead of us if they caught up. They actually told us that they were fine. We eventually let them go in front of us at the turn. We were once again asked by staff to speed up. We waited on every back nine hole for way longer than expected according to the course expectations. Also, the group behind us were hitting into us when we were not clear of the fairways or greens. Not once did I see staff observe or correct that ludicrous behavior. I don’t understand the logic of staying on us repeatedly when basically the whole track was slow and other golfers don’t show any etiquette at all!!! Tighten up and keep favoritism out of it and simply do your job. How difficult is that?
