Great day of golf. Nice driving range, chipping green with separate putting green. Staff was nice and knowledgeable. Refreshment cart seemed to be right on time with our round and the cart attendant was friendly and kind. Course was in good condition with very few fairway areas missing grass. First cut was well kept and even the rough was in good shape. Some of the bunkers were full of water, but we had a good amount of rain in recent days. Tee boxes were well marked and in really good condition. I could tell that they move the tees regularly as they weren't heavily worn. All in all, my first experience at this course was "above par"... just like my score.

Still in pretty good shape even though city took it over. I wish they hadn't let the waste bunkers grow in though. If you hit it in there before you just punched it out of sand. Now it's like hitting out of a farm field good luck on the lie. Super layout. Giant greens still fast and decent.

I have attended events at Virginia Beach National Golf Club over the years, but never played the course. I have also eaten at their restaurant the Signature Grille and can weigh in.
The public course is a premier Pete Dye design w/ assistance from Tour Pro Curtis Strange. Opened in 1999 it has hosted a PGA Nationwide VB Open. It's a challenging par 72 w/ over 7200 yards from the championship markers w/ tour quality greens. The exterior of the main building is looking aged and I have seen some areas that are in need of power wash, paint and even wood replacement.
The Signature Grille has been just ok on my few breakfast visits. Service a bit above average, food average. It typically is dead in the dining room. The business they receive in the morning is from gofers grab and go window. I personally would not go out of my way for a breakfast visit alone. They also offer dinner specials which I would like to give a try.
The club house and adjoining outside patio tent can be used for special events such as birthdays, anniversaries and weddings, receptions. Although I cannot weigh in on the course itself I can attest to the upkeep of the grounds which seems very good.
Give them a try for a round of golf, special event, or grabbing a bite to eat. It's a beautiful area.
