Hell's Point Golf Club
When Hell's Point Golf Club opened in 1982, Golf Digest called it one of the best new courses and it was ranked as one of the 100 best-designed courses in the country. Renowned architect Rees Jones designed the course. He incorporated the many natural features provided by the golf course's location in the Back Bay National Wildlife Refuge. The fairways are edged with saltwater marshes and Jones included his signature sculpted bunkers along the greensides. Just a stone's throw from the ocean, the golf course is as scenic as it is challenging. The second hole is one of southeastern Virginia's toughest golf holes with out-of-bounds to the left, trees to the right, and a sloped fairway that leads to a well guarded, double-tiered green. This par 4 is the no. 1 handicap hole at When Hell's Point Golf Club.

Went the day after a night of rain and bunkers were flooded and even parts of fairways were so wet, the ball was sunk in mud to the point you couldn’t find it every time. Definitely gonna go back in better weather because the course itself seemed relatively well taken care of. If you’re in a hurry, do note that you HAVE to wait for your tee times here, won’t get cart keys until it’s your exact time.
Nice course, rude staff
Long story short…rude staff! Tee time 2:06. Teed off at 2:12 because attendant refuse to give me the key to my cart until my tee time despite no one on the course in front of me. Too many nice courses in the area to deal with the rude staff at this one!
Scenic and pleasant course
- Really nice experience if played on a good day
- Re-paving of cart paths has really been great
- Nicely improved greens conditions
- Don't like their screwy rule about not taking your golf cart to your car. That's a pain.
- Staff helpful otherwise
- No beverage carts is less than ideal
I play this course a few times a year when I am in Virginia Beach. It is a beautiful setting in and amongst the woodlands and wildlife refuge. The course was in the best shape I have seen it recently. The fairways were lush and even though the greens had recently been aerated, they rolled pretty true. A great experience and I look forward to my next round.
Overall a good experience. Nice conditions. Fairways kind of tight, greens are on the small side. Well kept. Friendly. Only real complaint was they let a foursome off the back during the middle of our round and slowed the pace of play a bit. Would recommend the course.
Go someplace else
They made me mad from the start. They don’t allow carts to go to the range or to your vehicle. The boys at cart barn were unfriendly. This course acts like it’s nice but tee boxes sucked. They have bees on many greens. They have a tip jar by cart barn and those kids do nothing. I told cashier about golf now having the wrong directions. He didn’t seem to care. Go somewhere else. Kempsville is better. I’m from illinois and was disappointed in this course
Don’t waste your time, money, or sanity playing this course
I am a local playing on a budget and I’ve played here for years but Mike, the owner, is absolutely incapable of running a golf course. His nonsensical rules change on a weekly basis. He is of the volition that he can charge more and implement asinine rules simply because he finally repaired some of the cart path that he should have repaired years ago. Dealing with him alone will give you a migraine. Meanwhile, the course itself is still in considerably rough shape. The tee boxes are essentially slabs of un-level sand and mud. The course is poorly maintained and I’ve never seen them so much as water the greens and fairways. When they charged $20 and Mike was simply milking the course from a far, it was worth tolerating. Sadly, those days are gone and he clearly doesn’t read reviews but you are a fool if you play this course without reading them.
A fine place for an easy round
This course has some cool elements and could be a nice course with some TLC. For the money, it’s not bad. Drainage is their biggest issue. Greens are super soft and there is standing water all over after a rain. There are some fun holes, but most are pretty basic. Bunkers are in better shape than I expected. Greens could be difficult if they could speed them up and firm them up. I’d play it again on vacation, but I wouldn’t go out of my way to play there.
