The Tides Inn is the ideal destination for an inspirational Virginia golf vacation. Opened for play in 1976, the Golden Eagle is a proud design of George W. Cobb. Carved out of the beautiful wooded landscape around a 50-acre lake, this Chesapeake Bay golf course has many elevation changes and well placed bunkers for all skill levels. The Bermuda fairways and Bentgrass putting surfaces play to a par of 72. There are three major water hazards of particular interest which are 5, 9, and 18. Seven and 16 can also play harder than par.
From the championship tees, the Golden Eagle is 7,025 yards and has a USGA rating of 74.4 and a slope of 136. This Virginia golf course is host to numerous VSGA and Mid Atlantic PGA events. From the Tides Inn, turn left onto Route 200 off of King Carter Drive. Go one mile then turn right onto Old Salem Road, aka Route 646. Go 0.9 miles and turn left onto Clubhouse Road. Stay left and follow the hard surface road around; the Pro Shop is on your left.
