The course was very wet and too many leaves that you lose your ball if only 3-4 yards off the fairway.

I'm not sure why the East course gets more love than the West at the Bay Club. I find the West to be a much more interesting layout with a few water holes mixed in with a bunch of dog legs running through the woods. The course had recently taken on some water and some fairways were soft, but the course was in good shape overall and the greens were fast and true. The staff was extremely friendly and pace of play on a gorgeous fall Monday afternoon was fairly wide open. The golfnow price included a bucket of balls. Great value for the money.

Great course, but due to recent wet weather, very muddy and soft. Greens were too soft, though pretty decent speed.

Layout is great, with wonderful two island greens.

Decided to try Bay Club after many years. Opted for the West course and joined a deuce on the 1st green. Had an excellent time with the 2 fine men from Lancaster, Pa. Had a lot of laughs resulting from some not-so-great shot attempts.Weather was perfect for late October and course was in great shape and very fair and playable.

A shout out to ALL the staff who were very cordial and helpful. Much appreciated guys and ladies. Had such a great day that I returned the next day to play the East side. Same warm reception and service, including a rack rate discount. Will definitely return. Thanks to all.

Course is not in good shape. Tee boxes, fairways, rough and greens are all fair at best. They have begun aeration on one of their nines and should be complete in two weeks. West course is still open. Greens were super soft and slow.

I really enjoyed the course and staff. Super nice staff. A lot of challenging dog legs but the fairways were plenty big enough if you choose the right club. Condition of the course is great, some bunkers are rocky and some are perfect. Pace was fine but I had an Asian guy hitting in to me (did it twice on the front nine) then to a group in front of me on he back nine. I did not see any draft beer so headed out afterward (I prefer draft). Great Course, going back when we vacation at Ocean City next week.

course in good shape but slow play ruined the experience. Took us 5 hr 20 min to play. didn't see a ranger all day, One group 2 foursomes ahead of us had 3 to 4 holes open in front of them all day. Complained at the turn only got a smart answer. Too many courses in the area will never go back.

The West Course is tight with a lot of trees. If you can't keep your drive straight, this is not the place for you. Every other hole is a dog leg left or right through the trees. Course conditions were ok with some rough spots. Greens were small and on the slower side. However, the course was fairly wet from a storm a few days prior. The drainage must not be great and there is a ton of shade from the trees. There are a few nice holes with island type greens and the signature 9th and 18th shared green. The East Course looks a little more open and forgiving. Would play again but can do better elsewhere for $60.

Excellent, friendly staff. Free, quality range balls with our tee time. Quiet electric carts. Bent grass greens were true but cut a litle long for my taste, hence a little slow. Rough was penal. Great rate. No getting around it, big flies bothered us. Would bring bug spray. No different from other courses we've played in the area., it's just buggy in late July humidity. Gotta accept it. Will go back for sure.

Hottest day in July and the staff were still super friendly and very accommodating. From the bag drop off area to the pro shop to the restaurant, everybody was extremely welcoming.

The course was a great mix of tight holes and open areas. Hole 14, with its island green was beautiful and challenging.

We golfed in late March, it was a little windy and chilly, but we were impressed with the conditions. The green were very good, balls rolled true and fast. We really liked the feel of the course with no houses on the courses, and found the layout to be fair but challenging.
