Sculpted into the dramatic hills that surround the shores of Lake Kilby, Suffolk Golf Course unfurls a 6,305-yard emerald tapestry of woodland terrain and scenic waterways. A relatively short grassy monolith, the course compensates with dramatic elevation changes, sharp dogleg fairways on many holes, and binge-eating ball washers. Purely struck drives bisect the picturesque bermuda grass of winding fairways, and slick bentgrass awaits putters on boldly contoured greens. On the back nine, players bite their 9-irons in inner conflict and consider the ambivalent presence of Lake Kilby, which provides aesthetically pleasing vistas while simultaneously threatening to terminate the existence of wayward orbs. Those opting for the three-month weekday membership receive unlimited rounds of golf, provided they pay the mandatory $15 cart fee for each round.

Suffolk Golf Course
First sculpted into Virginia's rolling terrain in 1952, Suffolk Golf Course remains true to the original vision of course architect Dick Wilson. Though not an especially lengthy course, it plays longer due to the elevation changes, tree-lined fairways, and dog-legs that can complicate play throughout the layout. Once golfers reach the green, they face a slick, newly-renovated, Bermuda grass putting surface that—after overseeding in early 2014—provides a particularly true roll. The back nine winds around Lake Kilby, which provides sweeping vistas while threatening to ensnare any wayward shots. A bald eagle is known to dwell around the 12th hole, so golfers should wear their most patriotic wig on the course as a gesture of respect.
