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.

Challenge yet forgiving course.. a few fun holes to let the driver out of the bag and bomb away, then a couple holes where you need to be smart!! Par 3’s are fun with a little 100yd island green with great scenery!! Recommend this course if you don’t wanna cross the bridge with some good seafood restaurants on the way home...

Played this course late morning on Friday of the holiday weekend. Course was in great shape as expected for this time of year. Nice layout with a variety of holes ranging from rolling hills and dog legs. The par 3 holes were challenging but fun with courses signature hole a short but very fun. Pace of play was good while finished just over 4 hours. I will make it a point to play this course again.

The staff was wonderful. The only thing I wish was that they had a drinks cart going by once in a while especially since they dont allow coolers.

The course fairways and greens were in excellent shape. The holes were fun to play and were challenging enough without trying to intimidate you.

The golf carts looked like new and the price was very reasonable. I would definitely go again and again.

Played for Bay Pointe for the first time in late March. Still traces of snow on course but corse was in great shape considering the weather the last month has been. Tee times running about 15 minutes behind and pace slow first few holes, maybe due to layout with first few holes being a bit challenging and with blind tee shots or second shots. Was only place open so maybe reason course was packed.

Like to play again once the weather improves

My friends and I have been playing our "winter golf" at Bay Pointe for more than20 years. Our home course closes greens during the winter months, so we head to Onset for our fix. I see people there all winter from NH and other distant places. The customer service is fantastic and the beer is cold. The course is in surprisingly good condition between Dec. through March. and the green fees w/cart is extremely reasonable. So, if you are addicted to golf as we are, Bay Pointe should be your winter golf destination.

course was in great shape, greens were awesome. course starts out with an odd par 5, with a diabolical green, that really requires local knowledge. 2nd hole is a par 4 that is incredibly difficult (should play from the back tees as a par 5) so, starting out double/double is not that unusual. rest of the course is very fair and fun.

minimal pro shop, great bar.

Very challenging course. Each hole's challenges different. Lot's of elevation changes Course in great condition; fairways, greens and tee boxes all in great shape. Course plays a lot longer than the stated yardage.

Tight fairways, especially out of the T-box, so your drive has got to be straight. Greens were fast, but true.

Course management was lacking the day I played. Check-in staff was friendly and pleasant. When we ordered a sandwich at the turn, it was ready when we got there. However, no starter and booked visitor tee times in the middle of a club tournament, made for a frustrating 45 minute wait at the first tee as the tournament groups that started on the back 9 played through to finish the front 9. With no starter we had to ask each group who pulled up if it was part of the tournament. Finally we tee off only have to wait unto 5 minutes on almost each hole until we get to hole 10. No course marshal to keep things moving. Took me 6h and 15 min to play 18, the longest round I have ever played.

If I had payed full price for this round, I would have been very ticked, especially if I had time limitations.

I will come back as the course is fantastic, but probably wait until another GolfNow discount and mid -week.

We love this course! It’s a fun and challenging course to play with an island par 3 to a few long par 5’s with dog legs! This course is in fantastic condition from the soft greens to the plush fairways and super friendly staff! So glad you’re back on Golf Now!

This is one of the best courses around! From the tee boxes, to the fairways, to the greens! The greens are probably the most impressive when compared to other courses in the area. They are just pristine! I would recommend this course to anyone!

I expected a more modern course for the price. For 4 of us and 2 carts was $165. Wouldn't be so bad but two things really stands out as being poor quality. The carts are old gas carts. They could use an upgrade. Don't bother paying 20$ for a small basket and the driving range. The signs say you can't use T's at the driving range. So, using a driver is worthless if you can't use T's. Old mats, range is all uphill. So if you want to use the driving range, you can only use irons. Not worth it. Maybe thats why no one else was using them. With all the other courses around, don't think I'll be going back.
