Golf in Virginia Beach
Miles of bent and Bermuda grass, hardwood forests,
and impeccably-kept greens create the perfect setting
for an incredible day on the links in Virginia Beach.
Virginia Beach is a quality year-round golf destination
boasting courses planned by some of the world’s leading
designers such as
Arnold Palmer, Rees Jones, Pete Dye, Fred Couples
and the resort city’s own Curtis Strange.
The newest layout is the Arnold Palmer-designed Signature at West Neck.
Situated about 20 minutes from the oceanfront, the
course stretches for 7,010 yards and features 13 lakes,
picturesque wetlands, and beautifully sculptured beach bunkers.
Its sister course, Bay Creek, lies just across the Chesapeake
Bay in Cape Charles, Va., and is also a Virginia Beach
Golf Association facility.
Its 7,204 yard, par-72 design winds its
way through thickly wooded areas and along vast
stretches of water bordering the Chesapeake Bay,
and was named one of the “Top 10 You Can Play in the US” by Golf magazine in 2002.
The only daily-fee TPC facility open to the public
between Maine and the Carolinas, the Tournament Players
Club of Virginia Beach features an 18-hole layout and was
ranked 10th out of the 23 TPC courses rated by Golfweek magazine.
Other Virginia Beach courses are surprisingly friendly
to high handicappers and offer challenges to even the most
practiced golfers. The resort city's mild weather permits play
virtually year-round, making spring and fall perfect "sweater weather,"
while a variety of golf packages are offered to conveniently plan a trip.
