Lambert's Point Golf Club in Norfolk sits along the banks of the Elizabeth River, offering scenic river views from every one of its nine holes. The course is located on Old Dominion University's campus, doubling as the training facility for the school's golf team. The layout has a traditional links-style design that will challenge even low handicappers. It has all the challenges of a full-length golf course with dramatically rolling terrain that causes tricky uphill, downhill, and sidehill lies. It's a very tight course, which means that shot placement will be an important factor on every hole. While you may not need a driver, accuracy is a necessity. Even slightly errant shots will be severely penalized. Before tackling Lambert's Point golf course, you can use the impressive double-story, covered driving range for warming up.

Lamberts Point

Course was in rough shape. Bunkers and greens very poor. Really cool course layout that is pretty challenging and the views of the river are really nice but the greens were dreadful.

It would be so much nicer if it was kept up nice. Some fun holes and some challenges in the layout accompanied by some nice views on the water, but close to mediocre conditions. Fairways had some weeds and the bunkers are full of weeds and look like concrete. The greens were brown and some dirt and sand in play.

The driving range and practice area is nice but course needs love.

Some more upkeep on the 9 hole course and it would be a great course overall.

Great for practice

If you are breaking in new irons this is an excellent course. Greens are not worth even trying to putt on. Saving a great deal of time by not putting I was able to play 2,3, even 4 shots from tees/fairways. I was the only one on the course so I took my time and definitely got my money’s worth. If you are looking to keep score, stay away. If you want to get in some excellent practice, this is the course for you.

First time

Was surprised by the conditions. No sand in bunkers.
Greens were patchy. Could be a decent venue but not on that day.

Driving blind on almost all tees, pencil thin fair ways, disgusting bunkers, greens are patchy and poorly maintained.
