Nice course

Enjoyed the round. Course was in good shape with exception of some bunkers which staff informed prior to teeing off. Greens were in great shape and nice layout and challenging but fair. Only issue was no food on premises. Guess the restaurant closed on Mondays. Recommend have something in a cooler at Pro Shop as we played 36 and needed food. Overall excellent and will return next trip to Williamsburg.

Great day as always

Greens, tee boxes and fairways all in great shape. Staff is friendly, attentive and they don't put too many people on the course. Pace of play was great most of the day but slowed down a little on the back. No one behind us all day which was a pleasure. Only area for improvement could be a few bunkers need some fresh sand. Weather was great . Plenty of water on the course for drinking and a friendly cart girl too.

Y’all need to do better

The course was closed and I did not get to play. They closed at 5 and y’all had tee times all the way until 6. I chose 5:30 and basically lost 134 dollars. So if I could get a refund that would be cool

Course was in good condition for early spring. Traps were well raked. Pace of play was good. Front desk had told us the Black Heath course was cart path only but on the back nine we discovered from on site staff that we could be playing 90 degree play. We did not mind the extra exercise.

Great golf course

Played the Hawk Marsh on March 20
Course condition was fair given the time of the year but the course provided a good challenge for a 14 handicap golfer with large undulated greens
Staff provided excellent service and the course was well marshalled

Would highly recommend the course Which provided good value
