Beautiful park & facilities. Excellent signage (though you need to pay attention to the map at the beginning to successfully make your way from the front 9 to the back 9). 2 pins and 2 baskets for every hole, though 2 long tees were swamped under by apparent high tides. Very short except for 2 holes, a bit open but good use made of the space to make for some interest. Definitely worth the visit if you're in Virginia Beach and are jonesin' to play. About 40 minutes north of the main drag of Va Beach, but it is a Va Beach city park. Man, the Va Beach city limits are virtually limitless.

Tight fairways, water threats with safety valves on the majority of those, good use of available elevation. Excellent course. Worth the stop. Long tees are often extremely tough, and sometimes much, MUCH longer than the shorts. Short tees make it very playable for novices, but have enough interest and challenge to be still worthwhile to experienced players. Still a little rough around the edges in spots, and I wish the tee pads were a little longer, but all in all a fantastic course. Compar ...

Kinda rustic through the woods in a nice park with a lot to do. The course is very woodsy and tight, lots of elevation changes. I've heard it compared to Massillon. It is similar but much longer and tighter, and the doglegs frequently make for long approaches due to the sharpness of the dogleg angle and how much further you need to go to reach. The first couple and the last few holes are among the easiest. It is in pretty decent shape. Quite a bit of thorny rough in spots, as well as poison ...

This course has been around for quite some time now, and was always just kinda there to regular disc golfers. However, years of tree plantings and tree growth, coupled with a 2010-11 redesign of several holes (mostly back nine) by the Summit DG club have made this a much improved course. With the future installation of new, reasonably-sized concrete tees, coupled with some additional refinements and new hole cleanups, this will be a course that ascends to the A- class. The front nine is pre ...

Course would be an "A-" if some of the large fallen timbers could be addressed and signage improved a little. Excellent course overall in terms of variety, terrain, etc. Plenty of challenge here. Looking forward to playing it again someday.

You MUST play this course. Elevation changes, absolutely PERFECT pin placements, extreme technical variation, playable by beginners, good attendance at events (especially winter doubles), and the fact that the course has little overlap with other park uses makes this a real gem. I have a hard time poking holes in this course. A pro is capable of 10 under or better on a great day, but the technical challenges throughout the course still present issues that make most great scores EARNED. T ...

It is EXTREMELY important to note that this course is a work in progress. I think this course has a ton of potential. Holes 1,2,3,7 involve TIGHT fairways, high potential to add multiple strokes if you ricochet of a tree. A few holes also have TIGHT greens, especially 3. There are a few groves of poison ivy in areas (esp. 4 & 7. A few holes have public area interference, but most notable is that 4 is right near a walking path and you can't see walkers coming from the one direction on the pa ...

Enjoyable course. Lots of pins tucked into the brush on the edges, and the brush offers little in the way of recovery from where you might be stuck. Not too much in the way of problem vegetation (briars, poison ivy, etc.) Front nine is a little longer and more inventive than the back. They should try to reduce copycat holes on the back 9, where some are straight & short and obstacle-free, and others are identically short and straight at a tucked-in pin along the brush. Also, a number of back ...

Good technical course. Flows fairly well around the park while trying to avoid other public areas. Many technical holes involving elevation changes, pins on slopes, low ceilings, and doglegs in both directions. I have heard grumblings of tee signs too close to tee boxes, and while this is true, my understanding is that they're being moved this week, and they didn't bother me anyway. Also, 6 and 7 involve water. While you have to backtrack on 6 to get to 7, it's not really that bothersome, bec ...

I like big city parks with big trees. I like tight woods. I like the Lake Erie Shore. I like when I can shoot under par on a good day. I like how a place can have immensely different playing conditions depending on what mother nature throws at you. I like a balance in a course between distance and accuracy. This course has all of these. My only wish is that there were a few more lakeside holes, and that it was closer to home. That said, it's a worthy trip. Good people there, too!
