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.

So Much Potential

So I’ll start by saying I loved the layout of the course and the fact it’s not surrounded by houses at every hole. There’s a challenge to each and every hold in pin locations were tricky but not impossible. Fairways were in decent condition for so early in the season and greens played at a good speed. It was a busy morning so pace of play was slow but enjoyable.

Where the club needs to invest time and money are two fold… tee boxes don’t look great at all, and are significantly lacking, and also the cart path should have been re-laid a few years back as well (not to mention the rotted wood bridges over the creek).

Loved the course though, and seriously considering joining up and becoming a regular.

Diamond in the rough

Course is very challenging but very nicely laid out. Tight fairways, water and sand require accuracy. Greens are in nice condition and offer quite a bit of slope and pin placement. Driving range was the only subpar problem. In very poor shape. No grass and doesn't accommodate the golf cart, which means you have to off load your bag and leave a cart somewhere else. The range is also small and doesn't have many hitting spots. Fairways and roughs are in reasonable shape. A cart is necessary because several holes are hundreds of yards apart. In it's day, this course was magnificent. But, for the price to join ($99) and $20 for 18 holes with a cart, it is the best deal in town. May have to raise the rates to make some improvements.

Greens

While the tee boxes and other areas could use a trim, the greens are in the best shape I’ve ever seen them. I firmly believe that you get the best value for your money here out of any of the local courses.

Wet

Very rare that I play there and it’s not cart path only. Course does not drain well. The greens were being arreated. If we would of known probably would booked elsewhere.

Course was well maintained for it being February. Greens are very slow, other than that it was a great day. Hells Point always does a great job!
