Great Day for Golf
The day started off chilly but warmed up nicely. I am an intermediate golfer that recently retired. Therefore I am discovering more golf courses and the affordability of playing golf during the week on a tight budget. Golf Now with their Hot Deals is a blessing for a retiree that likes to play different courses.
The course was in good condition. 11, 12 and 13 were cart path only. But that did not deter from having a good day. I found the course challenging but it did not beat me up. I will play again and its a good course to test my progress.
Course was in very good shape. Greens wee excellent and overall fairways were well groomed. Staff was very friendly. I would recommend this course to my friends.
Great deal on weekday for money
Always enjoy this course, especially during the weekday when its not crowded, pace of play is good. Just three holes 11, 12, 13 were cart path only. Still hard to beat the value here.
Hello, and thank you for taking the time to review our course, Bay Hills Golf Club, and for the 3 stars. We hope that you enjoyed playing our golf course and that you will continue to see improvements in the course the next time you are with us. We are glad to see that you had a smooth round and a friendly experience with us. Thank you for playing our golf course, we look forward to seeing you again soon.
Good Hot Deal value
Course was in good shape. Fairways were very good along with the greens. Even though some greens were aerated and top dressed they were fast and true. Although the course was pretty busy, pace of play was good.
Quick pace, poor greens
Pace of play was excellent. On a Saturday at 11am, I joined a twosome and played the front in under 2 hours. Greens need some TLC, mostly I think from people playing. FIX YOUR DIVOTS! Will play here again because it's nearby and the value for the money is hard to beat.
Course was in the best condition we’ve played there, in the past 2 1/2 years. Weather of course was fabulous.
Nice course, but some rough spots.
Extremely nice course. However only about 10% of the sand traps have sufficient sand in them; and need drainage work. Most of the time I was hitting out of the sand, I was hitting off hard pan or had to take a drop due to water.
Play Anywhere Else Around Annapolis
I only paid $20 to play 18, so these are more pointing out flaws that need to be fixed as opposed to complaints.
1. No starter anywhere. Nobody knew when tee-times were, who was teeing off, what the groups were etc.
2. No marshall anywhere. I stopped after 9 because it took over 3 hours. In front of us there were two groups: there was a group of 4 gentlemen, 21-23 years old, and it looked like their first time ever swinging a golf club. Behind them was an actual family, father mother daughter and son, all of which struggled to hit a ball further than 30 yards. No marshall anywhere to tell them to let people play through or speed it up.
3. Greens in awful condition, as usual, with divots and weed patches everywhere. Awful for putting.
4. Bunkers are unplayable concrete patches. Would advise against trying to hit from bunkers if you like your wedges or wrists being intact.
5. In the 3+ hours we spent on the front 9, we saw the Cart Girl once on the 2nd hole and never again. Pretty unfortunate.
All in all this was by far the worst this course has played for me all year. You have to do something about the pace of play here or it will never be worth the money. This place has also has the nerve to charge over $50 for a morning round and I know for a fact pace of play is no different as marshalls and starters are non-existent.
If you enjoy 6-hour rounds and waiting over 20 minutes on each tee-box, for $30-$50 rounds (minus the GolfNow $20 deals), this the course for you. I will not be returning this season and hope things change for next year.
Met a real nice couple that I played with, and it was a beautiful day
Nice course but I personally like more par fives. Staff was super friendly though.
Greens Need Work
Too many greens are covered in dead weed patches, aerated heavily and with sand everywhere, or littered with unfixed divets. Fairways good/decent condition. Tee boxes could use new grass.
Pace of play was normal so about 4 hours for my foursome to play 18. We waited a bit in the front, not at all on the back.
Overall, you get what you pay for around Annapolis. $29 isn’t bad for an afternoon round on the weekend. This course is not very challenging and includes one par 5. Found most holes to be straight up driver-wedge and on the green.
Below Average experience
Course back nine was in pretty bad shape, greens very sandy and hard sand or no sand in the sand traps. Course slowed by group playing six on a hole. No marshal to move things along. We play this course frequently, but after today it moved down on our list of favorites.
Workers were prepping the bunkers while people were playing the same hole. It made me feel uncomfortable and cost me 3-4 strokes hitting towards people. This was after I teed off at 7:30 AM and lasted until the 17th green. Start workers earlier in the day and do the bunkers first.
