Kill the grass on the greens.

Re-do all 18 greens and T-boxes good grief. Never seen anything as bad in my life. Spend some money and water the grass!

Good Value

Great place to play golf. I jusrt want an inexpensive place to play with my friends. Greet layout. Greeens are in wonderful shape. You need to hit straight drives or you will be in trouble on most holes.

Quick 18

If you're looking for a long course, this is not for you. If you want to challenge or hone your short game, you might like Baytree. Greens are small with plenty of contour. Unfortunately the greens are very long and slow. The tee boxes were also small, uneven, and un-cut for me. The day we played it had rained hard the night before and hence there was still a LOT of casual water in various playing areas around the course and especially the 13th fairway. Could be a good challenging little course with some regular maintenance but I will not play here if I have to pay the full 'in season' rate. In my opinion it is overpriced for the conditions the course is in regardless of 'in or out of season.'

Perfect little course to sharpen your long shots and mid shots, the course seems to be under repair at this time and it looks like it is being rejuvenated with new grass on the t-boxes and the greens. Greens are a tad rough due to the new grass being installed but once they are established this course will be perfect.

Course Conditions Have Declined In Quality

I have golfed at Baytree for about the past 5 years and have seen the conditions of the course decline.Last year I only played it twice and both times the fairways were in almost unplayable condition as there were large clumps of cut ,wet grass over many of the fairways///Yesterday when we played the fairways were in somewhat rough condition(wet areas,weedy,many bare spots).The greens were similarily in rough condition(weedy,bare spots,etc.)Unless the overall conditions are improved I would not recommend the course nor will I play it again until it shows significant improvement.

Bay Tree

This course has small greens and some tight driving holes so its a bit harder then the par and the length would suggest.Got a hot deal here so i decided to walk rather then take the electric cart to get some excercise.Its an excellent course to walk so i enjoyed that. Condition is only average but its fair for the price....

What Greens?

Greens are absolutely terrible. Tee boxes some mostly sand. Fairways inconsistent, some wet spongy, mixture of weeds and creeping Florida grass. They have weeded out sand traps, and reseeded some tees and fairways. No consistency.

This was a good find.

Enjoyed the course except for the greens. We were informed by staff that the greens were recently overseeded, and therefore, fuzzy and slow. Everything else was fine. Naturally the course was being watered heavily. Once you realize you need to add a club to offset the lack of roll, it was fine.
