“I wanted to congratulate you and your staff on a successful Portsmouth City Amateur this past weekend. The golf course, field, prizes and pace of play far exceeded my expectations.

“Congratulations on being named ‘Top Municipal Golf Course in the Old Dominion’. You certainly deserve it and you should be very proud. I have always enjoyed playing BAW and hope to get back next year.”
~ Keith L. Decker, Top Amateur in Virginia


“The greens are well kept, the fairways are always in good shape and you can generally get out whenever you want. There are lots of courses in the area that have similar pricing but the quality in this course is beyond compare. They make sure this place is ready to play throughout the year which comes in handy during those short warm snaps during the winter months.”
~ Nick C., Virginia Beach, VA

“The TCIS Conference would like to thank you and everyone on your staff for helping to make this year’s TCIS Golf Tournament the success that it was. Many of our coaches and parents expressed that it was the best tournament that we have had in quite a few years. The golf course was great shape, the pin placements were challenging but not unrealistic, and the attitude of your staff made everyone feel that this was the best possible place to host a tournament. I have well been aware of the high importance you have placed on junior golf through the years. This tournament gave a Jot of people the opportunity to see first hand what a fine place Bide-A- Wee is and how people like you make it possible for junior golf to continue to grow. Again, thank you for everything concerning our tournament, and please convey this message to your staff.”

By hosting this great event, your club is contributing greatly to the promotion of golf in Virginia, and we are truly appreciative. We had a good turnout for this event, and the club did a fine job in preparing the room and the food service. All the participants enjoyed the opportunity to visit your club. Please know that the VSGA staff and the many VSGA volunteers across the Commonwealth are at your service. ‘Thanks again for your continued support of VSGA programs.”

“I would like to express my gratitude for the hospitality of your city as demonstrated by the staff at the Bide-A-Wee Golf Course. The American Helicopter Society conducted its annual Forum at VA Beach this year and the day before the conference we had a golf tournament at your Bide-A-Wee Golf Course. The conference attracted about 1,400 aviators and engineers from all over the world this year. What a pleasure it was working with this staff. Everybody was friendly and courteous. All who participated in our tournament had nothing but praise for the facilities and the people involved. The golf course itself is absolutely gorgeous as well as interesting. The catering staff was extremely accommodating as we were making food and beverage decisions right up to the 0800 shotgun start.”

“Our Annual Leadership Hampton Roads Golf Tournament was held at Bide-A- Wee and by all accounts the tournament was a success! The success of the event was due in no small part to the efforts of the staff at Bide-A-Wee. In addition to the professionalism exhibited by all, the staff went out of their way to insure that everything was in place and “ready-to-go” for our event. One other thing, the golf course was in wonderful condition as evidenced by the rave reviews passed on by the golfers. It was great to be in Portsmouth. I am sure you will find many of our guests returning to play on their own prior to next year’s event after such a wonderful outing!”
