Chilly Day at the Bay

Despite all of the recent rains the course was in very good shape today. Very little standing water and so, the fairways and greens were very playable. The greens are as fast as usual so if you enjoy this kind of challenge Bayforest is a good play. The pace of play was slow. My twosome got stuck behind a foursome of walkers who would not let us playthrough. A marshall should have been present to speed play or have the foursome let us move ahead. This was both surprising and disappointing for a course with such a good reputation. I will think twice before coming back for another round.

Greens and bunkers are good

Great place to play if you like putting on good quick greens that actually break and are in great shape. Playable bunkers. Many par 5 ‘s and mid to long approach shots. Love this course

Great value

Tee time 12:10. Teed of at 11:55. Finished at 3:25. No waits. Other than some tee boxes being over sanded, course was in great condition. Great Value!

The majority of the greens are soft and quick, but most are dead around the edges. For the most part the course is in good condition. Only got in 9 because of a nasty thunder storm.

Nice Course!

Greens, fairways & tee boxes were in great shape. Bunkers were sloppy, but we enjoyed skipping those anyway. Cart girl was visible. Carts were clean. Pace was very good. Cart path needed some attention. We had a good time on the course.

Best Value on East Side

Eagle Point in Barber's Hill is the only municipal course that is run better than Bay Forest. I play here regularly and sometimes the course setups leave you scratching your head wondering if the greens-keeper was fully awake and sober when he set up the course. The greens generally are in good condition with the occasional hiccup. The only real problem is a number of tee boxes need to be redone as you can't find even a relatively flat spot to tee of from.
