Suffolk Golf Course
Suffolk Golf Course
Fairways were in good condition without any bare spots. Greens looked in rough condition, but were smooth and fast for this area. Tee boxes need some maintenance, pretty chewed up and rarely found a flat spot on them. Pace of play was 4 hours, could have been faster, but the group ahead of us was slow and wouldn't let us play thru.

Course in great shape
We played a tournament there today and found the course to be in great shape and the rate is only 33 dollars and the pro told us number 6 green did have some Winterkill from the harsh winter but the sod they put down should be great by the end of the month.The other 17 greens were good and the course very well groomed for our event and the price is about 20 dollars less than any other course in the Suffolk area which is great value so I think the previous review has Champagne taste on a beer budget because they got the hot deal( wants to be a country club member but can't afford it) .Thanks John( pro shop manager) for accommodating our military group today and I will be back with the regular Foursome to your course very soon.

Nice course if the price is right
Lots of trees along the rough, but several holes are good driving holes if you like to rip it.
Normally priced as if this were a top course in the area, which it is not, we got a good value because of a GolfNow hot deal. They replaced the greens a year or so ago, which were much improved at that time, but sadly they are not as good this year, and one of them (hole 6) is in bad shape (but is being re-sodded). Most sand traps continue to have only a thin layer of sand over hard-packed, clay-like dirt. Attempting a proper sand shot in most traps (there are a few exceptions) will result in the club bouncing into the ball and knocking it well over the green.
Would I recommend it to a friend? That may depend on the friend! The course is a nice layout, and would be worth the money if the condition (top priority: traps; next: greens) were a bit better. At the right price it is a nice track.

Not sure why it posted would not recommend to a friend because I definitely would and we already booked our tee time for this coming weekend,

Course is in great shape
Our group played on Sunday morning and we drove over from Virginia Beach and found the cord to be in wonderful shape( so not sure what they other guy is talking about with bad greens The pro told us number six hasn't come out of dormancy yet because of the shade)but the other 17 or in wonderful shape and anyone that plays a lot of golf and plays on Bermuda greens knows they're normally pretty firm. We played in just under four hours and you can't beat the price for weekend golf,Thanks for a great time and we hope the weather is as good the next time we go back in a couple weeks.P.S bunkers are hazards there not suppose to be nice and when I was fortunate enough to play Pine Valley they were hard as bricks and don't even have rakes and I think pine valley is ranked number one in the world

I was excited to play the Champion Greens
Until I got to the first green. They did not hold and they were very very dry. The green on #6 was completely covered with sand. Also, there is no sand in the traps, I guess it's all on the 6th green. I was very disappointed. I have been playing this course over 20 years. Their #1 job is growing grass and that's not happening. Sad. I hope it gets better or I will not make the 25 mile trek to play it.

Great day out on the course
"A bad day of golf is better than a good day at work."
Scenery was nice, especially around the lakes/ponds.
Lots of walkable area in the trees, in case that's where your ball lands.
Pro shop was like a lot of courses. Snack bar that doesn't take plastic, and I'm not complaining. It's like stepping back into the 80's Just a funny observance.
$35 w/cart on a weekend isn't a bad deal, in my opinion.
A lot of dead/dying grass. Could be due to lack of rain in the spring. I don't think I've met a course I didn't like in some way, and this is no different. Will play again next trip to Suffolk,
