Fair

We decided to play here because we knew it would be dry after the storm came through. It was packed and really slow (5hours). The ranger should have been out speeding up the groups ahead or allowing us to play through. Greens were ok and course in pretty good shape. I will go back.

Baywood 6th Round

Rain! Wet! We were the only ones on the course. Pace was great but wet with increasing rain. Water was not standing on the course nor was there areas of extremely wet soil. The value is there in playing Baywood.

This course needs some work. Very nice community to have a less than average golf course. I would think about moving there if the course was better.

Anyone want to buy a golf course?

While the price seemed great, we thought we would try it out. Drove an hour to get there. Driving through the sub-division to get to the course we nice. Homes LARGE and well maintained gave us a nice a comfort feeling about the golf course.

However, when we arrived and saw the putting green, we thought oh brother. The putting green was in desperate need of weed killer, fertilizer, and grass. But we thought maybe this isn't the representation of the greens on the course.

Off to the first tee. Tee boxes were in need of maintenance. Fairways were okay in areas and the greens had weeds throughout and some areas of the greens weren't there.

Come to find out afterwards the course is up for sale. Anyone want to buy a golf course?

Great Course and layout

Great price if you have golfnowPlus bargins. Other wise the price is slightly high for the condition the greens are in.
Women's tee boxes are longer distance for what I am used to. Still Loved the layout and difficulty.

Pleasantly surpised

Great value. Got an early tee time and played 18 in 2.5 hrs! Lots of water and narrow fairways, which I like. Greens were in really good shape. My only complaint is the lack of signage from one tee to the next. If you are new to the course, ask where holes 1 and 10 are before you start. I literally had to stop a car in the neighborhood to ask where hole 10 was after finishing the front nine.

Baywood 6th round

Baywood is a fairly flat course with varying width fairways. I can be challenging for average golfers and is more challenging from the blue and gold tees. Fairways are well watered and have nice roughs. Traps are wet and hard generally not raked. Greens are in fair to good shape, with some undulation. They can be very large. Fun to play.

I’ve seen worse

The course was in better shape than before. Greens weren’t so bad and pace of play was really good. Do recommend and plan on going back!

Horrible Course Conditions

To start, the tee boxes weren’t mowed and had huge bare spots. Hard packed sand. Most holes I had trouble finding a place to tee up. The fairways and 1st cut were in good shape. The greens, terrible. Hole 6 I believe, par 3, has a enormous dead spot. Most greens have dead spots and/or ant hills. Putting was like watching your ball roll down a high with speed bumps.

Speaking with another golfer, I was told that the owners have been scaling back on the care and upkeep of the course. Whether that’s true or not, the course definitely needs work. Would not recommend unless it’s your last option to get on the course.

Baywood 6th round

This is a well set up, flat course offering a challenge to the average golfer. Two over the water driving holes are fun. The course condition is good but could be improved. Course management is working on it. Greens are spotty in parts - plugging to be done next week will help. I will definitely play again.

Bad Condition — Interesting Layout

This course was not in good condition.

Thin and patchy fairways, potted and sand greens, torn tee boxes.

The layout of the course was interesting, and would have been good if the condition was better.

The practice green was non existent. Half was ripped apart and roped off, while the other half was more sand and ant hills than grass. Small driving range off the grass was also present in ok shape.

Baywood 3rd round

Course continued draining and presented itself with less soggy areas. Greens are in fair shape but still with size are challenging as is the course.. I walked and was still able to stay ahead of the trailing group until the 14th hole.

Baywood 2nd round

My second time this week. The course drained quickly from earlier deluge. Shots bounced further. Fairways are in great shape. Greens need TLC although they are true and fast. Very nice, forgiving layout allows duffers like me to hit without claustrophobia or fear of out of bounds. Amenities are in short supply, understanding due to COVID-19 and summer season. Workers are eager to converse, setting up course for a great time.

A wet one

Given the rain of late, the course is extremely wet however the fairways are challenging in their openness. A good course for golfers who want an open fairway to pound it out. Greens are patchy without much slope but sizable and challenging even in wet conditions. Club-houae ameniities need improving (thanks COVID-19) but friendly and helpful staff make up for this shortcoming. All in all a course, not all unchallenging, with a few nifty turns and opportunities for lower scores.

Without question the fastest greens I have played, props to the staff. Should host a US Open qualifier in the near future.

Covid 19 nightmare

The course was a cow pasture. When I booked on golfnow didn't know that the clubhouse didn't have any amenities . Played with 2 other guys. No starter, was told just get to number one when we're ready. After two holes I knew we were in trouble. Greens and teeboxes were terrible, fairways were not taken care of. Every shot was a gamble. No beverage cart as we went thru the front nine. Stopped at the turn and nothing, beer or food. They should be charging 50 cent a hole, never going back. Avoid at all possible.

WORST course ever!

If you expect grass (not sand and weeds) on the golf courses you play, better look elsewhere! I literally live less than a mile from this course but, NEVER will play this course again! The reason(s), where do I begin?! Just look at the practice green next to the clubhouse and it will tell the story for the entire course...dry, dead, and damaged! No or patchy grass on the driving range , tee boxes or fairways! IF you do find a spot of grass, there certainly no first or second cut to identify! The greens are the worst of any I’ve seen in over 20 years of playing! There are huge dead/sandy spots or they are overgrown with crab grass! Bunkers- you’re lucky to find sand (or a rake) in any bunker and you won’t find any on your cart to fill divots either.
I honestly cannot understand how anyone could give this course an “ overall “ rating of more than one star! Even the $14 green fee you find on GN isn’t enough to inspire me to play here! Simply the worst course conditions of anywhere in the state!
