Go to neighborhood course.

We don’t live far from the course so we play it often. The GolfNow discount makes it even more appealing. There a a few tough holes for seniors but overall a pleasant experience.

Fun Course!

This is my hometown favorite! We have played here multiple times this year due to awesome deals they have going all the time with Golf Now App and other coupons. We have not been disappointed! Greens are good and overall course is very nice.

Getting Better

The course was going down hill but, the new owner is starting to get things done to improve the conditions. It's not going to happen over night but, you can see the work that is getting done. This is a real good golf course and can be very challenging. We just have to be patient as they work on the course but, go play it and have fun. Also, the Golf Pro at the course is a great guy to talk to.

Challenging and Beautiful

Bay Valley was a tough but beautiful course for us. Perfect weather with nary a breeze. Lots of water but always an option to bypass it. When you got in trouble you got in BIG trouble. Every hole felt very private from other golfers. Some of the biggest greens my husband has ever seen. We enjoyed our round immensely. Kayla the cart gal was friendly and helpful. We will be back. Excellent value for your money !

Great place to play!

I golf here often, overdue on this review. The value here (especially through Golf Now) is through the roof! Great course, great layout, not too challenging, and nice bar to relax in after your round! Highly recommend!

MUCH IMPROVED

Played first time this year because I heard improvements were in place. Course in MUCH better condition than last year!! Not as good as 5 years ago, but not what it was last year. Greens, tee boxes, and range show a lot of effort taking place.

I will go back!

excellent golf course

We had gotten a lot of rain just 2 hrs before my round. they had changed #4 from a par 4 to a par 3 because of the condition of the fairway. but all the other holes were in great shape. the greens were receptive and fast. Have not played out there in a couple of years but now it will be a regular tract

Coming back into shape

I have played this course multiple times per year over the past decade and the conditions this April were the best I have seen in years. The greens are really starting to make a comeback and the course was in extremely good condition. Also, this course is one of the few in the area which have a GolfNow Hot Deal Tee Time attached to it, which makes it much more affordable than other area courses.
