Nestled in the heart of Virginia Beach, Honey Bee Golf Club is one of the area's most popular daily-fee golfing venues. Rees Jones designed the course, incorporating water on 10 holes as well as intricate bunkering throughout. The challenging layout has several tricky doglegs and some treacherous blind shots as well. It's a golf course that demands careful course management and some strategic thinking. Accurate shot placement is also key when maneuvering the rolling fairways and contoured greens. While it's by no means an easy golf course, it is an enjoyable round for players of all skill levels, making it a popular venue for tournaments and corporate outings. For golfers looking to get an entire day of golf in, Honey Bee's sister club, Stumpy Lake, is only about half a mile away.

Love the layout of this course. The summer heat and dryness has put some bad spots on some of the greens. As long as you didn’t have those in your line, they putted nice and true. Rest is course was in good condition and played well. Already set another tee time to play it again

Pace of play was way to slow. 5 hrs, 20 minutes on a Tuesday. Greens are not very good. Enjoyed the layout and tees and fairways were fine.

A Great day on the course!

We had a most wonderful round at Honey Bee on Friday, July 8. The course is in great shape; the pace of play was great, and the company was outstanding! Looking forward to the next round.
