Bay Pointe Country Club was known as Wareham Country Club when it first opened in 1964 up until 1988 when it underwent a major renovation, including the construction of the island green seventh hole, which is the golf course's signature. The club underwent yet another multi-million dollar renovation in 2012 when the club changed ownership. In the most recent renovation, hundreds of extraneous trees were cleared from the fairways in order to get it back into pristine condition. Although it's a seemingly short layout at just over 6,200 yards from the back tees, it actually plays much longer. The first two holes are laid across the hilliest portion of the terrain. Though you have a challenging start, the rest of the Bay Pointe golf course eases into a gentler landscape.

With the exception of the preposterously-designed numbers 1 and 17, this course is great. My favorite value in the area and pace of play is always solid.

A good course you should give a try.

We were lucky to get a terrific early Fall day. The greens were in perfect condition and running around a 10 . The entire course was groomed in nice shape. Pace of play was good and we all had a great day.

NCCGA Event

Scott and his staff are always welcoming to our NCCGA golfers. This course is recommended by students in the New England region and is a good test of golf. Looking forward to hosting here again soon.

Thank you Scott!

People cutting in front of us

Got off early, nobody in front or behind us for 9 holes. On 11, an elderly couple drives up behind us on the tee, no idea where they came from, we hit our drives (mine was about 190 and my husband the same) they pulled around us and went to the next hole! Problem showed up 2 holes later when they are waiting on players in front that we finally caught up with. From that point they held us up, they had no business being there, I spoke to the person working in the pro shop after the round, oh well, they don’t care!

18 holes

I reviewed this course earlier in the season when there was no Hole 5 and Hole 6 was a temporary. I am happy to report that the course is back to 18 holes and is playing as it did in the past. I was told that there are a lot of homes being built and the holes will be changing. Call before you book if you do not play here regularly to confirm conditions.
This time it played very well!

Great conditions, confusing layout

Immaculate conditions, fairways greens and T boxes were terrific.

Only complaint is terrible signage and if you are new to the course good luck finding a number of holes if there isn't someone there to point you in the right direction.

There is also no key to tell you how far to a dogleg, a hazard, Or the preferable distance to hit a blind tee shot

All in all I liked the course a lot, but if my friend didn't have a swami we would have been lost completely

Solid Cape Course before the Bridge

Bay Pointe is a forgiving golf course. I hit a fair amount of bad shots that didn't get penalized. I started playing the blue tees but moved to the the whites after joining up with another single.

The construction is also done on the 5th and 6th holes and they are ready to go.

There are two weak holes on the course. #2 is a par 4 that plays way too long. Moving the tees up would be helpful. #7 is a par 3 that is maybe only 85 yards to the middle.

There are a couple of holes that are drive-able for someone in the 250 yards range, making for a fun decision. On the other hand, it feels like 5 of the par 3's all play to the same, or similar, distance.

The greens are sloped, receptive, and true but slow(er). The strategy is to go right at the hole with some speed.

Bay Pointe is going to be best for a fun, relaxing round of golf. There is not a ton of trouble to worry about and there is space to miss. There is room to hit the driver but you don't have to at the same time.

Despite the length not being an issue, I do not know if I would play the blues when I go back. Most holes are fine but a couple seem like the tee box doesn't really fit.
