This course will expose any weaknesses as the amount of trouble is extreme.

Played on soggy day but course drained well. Greens were fast but not too much which is good as they are very undulated. Fairways were in great shape and no standing water.

Was missing to both sides which is not good on this course as trouble is everywhere.

Played in under 4.5 hrs which is good for this course. Waited on groups in front of our foursome but not too bad.

Will definitely play again.

Great course, was in great shape the day we played. Never really waited after the first hole. Course was very challenging and the only thing missing was GPS in the carts. Would have been nice to know things like the distance to carry the water or the strategically placed traps.

The course was in great shape and had an interesting layout. Unfortunately, the foursome in front of us took 5 hours to play the round. A Players' Assistant stopped on the 8th hole and told us he had asked the slow group to pick up the pace. This worked for a hole or two, and then play slowed down again. The Players' Assistant never came back to monitor play after we saw him on the 8th hole. Very disappointing.

Bayside is a must for any golfer playing in the Bethany-Ocean City area. The course was in terrific condition despite being aerated less than three weeks earlier. The layout is challenging but fair. However, you must be capable of carrying your drives 220+ over water on some holes. The greens were fast but not overly so and the bunkers were well tended. The staff was courteous and friendly. Overall a very pleasant golfing experience.

I'll start with the positive. This is a very interesting course that requires well thought out strategy as well as skilled shot execution. Early on I decided to club down often, sacrificing distance for accuracy, and noted that things started to go better.

The practice green was very good and up to the standard that one would expect. On the first few holes it was clear that the greens had been aerated a week or two ago, but they were passable. After that, there were a large number of greens that were almost like fairway on a really good course, or like the greens on a $10 country course. Interspersed were a few good greens, so that we never really knew what to expect on our approach.

The next day I played Baywood Greens which had impeccable conditions, phenomenal landscaping, and a much better vibe. Paying a few dollars more to play Baywood, or from what I hear, Lighthouse Sound or Rum Pointe , would definitely be worth the extra cost.

The greens had recently been aerated and several of the fairways had large bare spots in them. The course condition had deteriorated significantly from the condition when I played the course a month earlier.

It was disappointing that this wasn't disclosed when booking the tee time.

The fees were also not reduced accordingly.

Very nice course. Would have given higher marks, but the fact that aeration was recently done... I understand the need and all, just a timing thing. I would certainly go back for another round. Course knowledge will help next time.
