Attended the annual tournament and played a practice round as well. My previous review stands with regard to the beauty, views of the Chesapeake Bay, and the staff. The difference for me this year was that the course had a few more dirt spots than last year, and had pebbles in the bunkers, especially on #18. It scarred my SW (but, I know I shouldn't have been in it to begin with). Greens were really hard to read--by the end, I just putted to the hole vs. anticipating any break. It was just easier. Great course, and I like the Palmer better than the Nickolas.

Played in a tournament (as well as a practice round the day before). The Palmer course starts out with some very scenic holes along the Chesapeake Bay...beautiful views, nice breezes, and lovely landscaping to accent the bay, tidal marshes, and "eastern shore" beach beauty. (Even saw some deer eating the roses!!) Watch out for the par 4 #3, which is the #1 handicap. It's quite an intimidating hole, but I managed to par it both days! The back nine is a more traditional layout with tree-lined fairways cut through wooded areas and around some of the community. The 4 rating for greens and fairways was because the greens had recently been aerated and were still a tad bumpy, and the fairways had "Spring dead spots" (which I was unfamiliar with) along with splotches of thick course grass. It wasn't as pristine as I was thinking it would be, but still very nice. I actually liked the Palmer the most out of the two courses (playing it twice). What was unmistakable at Bay Creek is how nice and welcoming the staff is! From the bag drop to the restaurant to the pro shop to the starter, all extended themselves to make you feel valued. Joe Burbee (Head Pro) was absolutely wonderful--can't say enough about how nice and welcoming he is, and really anxious to assist in any way he can. I will definitely look to revisit Bay Creek in the near future. Great restaurants off property, as well, if you want to stay for a golf weekend/trip. Only about 3.5 hours from the Baltimore/Annapolis area.

the Bay Hill community has two outstanding courses, one designed by Nicklaus, and one by Arnold Palmer. The Palmer course is the more forgiving of the two, but don't make the mistake of thinking your round will be a walk in the park. Long forced carries, expansive waste areas, and devilish collection areas by several of the greens force you to make accurate shots in order to score. Course conditions are perfect, with fairways, greens, and everything else, perfectly manicured to tournament conditions. An extremely good value, I would make this my home course if I could

Great resort with two great courses. The Arnold Palmer designed course is great. The layout and the views make you come back for more. The par 3, 12th is one of the better golf holes you'll ever see.
