New member review

Recently joined The Bay Club after moving back to Mattapoisett, a beautiful small seaside New England town.

The Bay Club is unique to the southcoast of Massachusetts for a few reasons. First, it is a gated community in an area where this is not common and second, it is the only golf course that's also a Silver Certified Audubon Sanctuary anywhere in the area.

Having played this course 10 years ago when it first opened, I can attest to the work that's been done to increase the course's character and fit to the area. The club's focused much of its efforts to reduce unneeded maintenance costs as well as add additional personality by adding acres and acres of fescue that frames the field of play in addition to making it feel like a seaside parkland course that far outpaces its years. Being only a mile from Mattapoisett harbor, the normal day-to-day conditions fit comfortably with the course updates and aesthetic enhancements.

There's plenty of challenge on this par 71 Brad Faxon/Brad Booth design. The fairways are generous, but the native grasses can come into play for errant tee approach shots. The Bay Club also offers a host of modern amenities including a large practice facility, an 85 yard two-tiered green short game facility and a Himalayas-sytle complementary practice green.

To round out the country club elements, it has a large pool, workout facility, multiple racquet courts, croquet, basketball and more.

Overall, very pleased and highly recommend to those looking for a full featured country club lifestyle.
