Ocean View

Course was in excellent condition! Greens were a little on the slow side but not patchy and rolled true. Layout is fun and moderately challenging. Really good value through GolfNow

Overbooked as usual

They had a tournament that day, and GolfNow or Oceanview or both overbooked as usual. We skipped over about 6 holes and left early as there was no way we were going to finish our round before dark. I wish GolfNow would let you know about tournaments before you book.

Great price… great time

Course was in good shape and the staff was friendly. Fun course. Only negative was people weren’t grouped together so you would have a single, pair, and pair and it was a battle of waiting each hole. Just combine people and do that way is my opinion.

Fairways were hard! Greens were manageable! Tee boxes need work! Hopefully it will get better! Price was right

Great public course

Great course for your dollar. Unfortunately, there is no driving range. The benefit is, no need to show up super early. The course is in pretty good condition, with only a few areas needing repair.

Labor Day weekend

It was Labor day weekend, so pace of play was bad....but I expected every hack to be on the course
Fairways and greens were what you should expect for a muni. Pretty good. Staff was good and easy to get something to eat or drink. Don't expect Augusta, but more like Scotland conditions. Saying that it has been the driest August on record. I say give it a try.

Tremendous Value!

I have been on a hunt trying to find a course in Norfolk that is well kept has a decent layout and is great for practice. We’ll look no further. Ocean view is quite possibly the most underrated course in Hampton Roads. Greens were phenomenal. They had recently too dressed the front nine but they were still in great shape. Greens are on par of not better than other higher end public courses in the area such as Riverfront and VB National. The course is short and relatively easy, but there are several holes that will challenge your course management and shot shaping ability when played from the tips. I cannot recommend this course enough. Go play Ocean View today.

good value for money

The course is moderately challenging and in pretty decent shape for a public course with as much play as it gets. I enjoy it and intend to play again
