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.

Excellent staff, poor course condition!

Very friendly and helpful staff!
The course was in a overall very bad condition. Overgrown tees and greens in a very bad condition. Absolute the worst I have experienced in Virginia Beach area. Course layout is good.

Those pesky tee boxes

Some tees are decent but others need regraded. On the bad Tees we simply found a decent area to tee from and letter rip.. loved the fairways and greens. Marshall was out twice checking pace.. saw cartgirl 4 or 5 times.

Dry and hard

This is my home course. I play quite often. Greens are in great shape. Bunkers could use a good raking or fresh sand. Fairways are hard as concrete. Tee boxes are in terrible shape.

Ground bees in the sand and hills

Almost every big mound near sand traps had swarming ground bees. Had 2 4 man groups in front of us that wouldn't let us play through. Finished 18 holes in over 5 hours.

Overall good

Overall I think it was a good course. Biggest thing they really need to work on are the tee boxes. Lumpy uneven and footing not great. Fairways and greens were good

Helluva Day at Hells Point

This is not one of my favorite courses in the Virginia Beach area. We've been returning to the area for three decades and have played Hells Point several times. Its big advantage is its proximity to Sandbridge, where we stay. Its disadvantages are its poorly maintained tee boxes and several greens. They cater to regular golfers over annual vacationers, which I can accept. But some flexibility and accommodation would go a long way in attracting repeat golfers. Green fees seemed a bit steep for the area and the course conditions, much better value elsewhere.
