Rating 76.4
Type Resort/Public
Bayside Resort Golf Club has a scenic location overlooking Assawoman Bay. The club boasts one of the Ocean City area's only Jack Nicklaus-designed golf courses. The course stretches to a whopping 7,545 yards from the signature tees, offering plenty of holes for long hitters. Nicklaus created a tough test of golf that features a wide variety of holes. The natural wetlands and woodlands were not only carefully preserved but also incorporated into the course to provide interesting hazards. Although natural hazards abound, there are also several strategically placed bunkers lurking throughout the golf course. In addition to being a challenge, many of the holes also take advantage of the beautiful views of the coastline. It is a formidable but fair course that is made more approachable to different skill levels with four other sets of tees.

What a challenge

Bring your game. Not an easy course for sure. It's one you start and you immediately realize game on. No let up until your back and done with the 18th. The three penny story is legend.

What a challenge

Not one of the easier courses to play. Well protected greens

Fairway bunkers ask you to think your shot through. Makes.for.a.great round of golf.to complete. Pack an extra.ball or two . The water features dont give much back.

Best Delmarva Shore Course

Every time I play this course, I fall in love with it all over again. The fairways are like perfect green carpet and the greens always roll perfectly. It kicks my butt every time and I keep coming back for more.

Great course but held back by a few small things

Great course layout, 6 tees to choose from, greens were lightning fast, fairways pristine, rough was deep due to recent rains, bunker sand was perfect consistency. There were a few things missing that I expect from a course charging this much. Firstly, there is no GPS on the carts. This helps speed play by not having to mess with an app on your phone or shoot distances with a range finder. Secondly, they do not offer unlimited range balls but instead give you a bag of 20. That’s just not enough to warm up with, IMO. They also don’t need offer senior discounts and their junior rates are 15 & under.

For a Nicklaus designed course charging >$100 a round, these 2 things are why I knocked it down a star.

Beautiful course, great condition

Wonderful day at this course. Started late because of a tournament that was finishing up. Weather cooperated.

Very difficult first 2 opening holes, otherwise difficult but manageable. You have to play smart and not attempt too many forced carries. There is always room for bailout instead of making hero shots. Greens were a little on the slow side, but true.

Bayside Resort

The course is in phenomenal condition right now. Greens are quick and responsive, fairways are soft and in good shape and the staff was very friendly. I will be playing this course again in the near future. I think it is either better or just as good as Baywood Greens. Both courses are fantastic
