Embracing the breathtaking and varied natural environment, Jack Nicklaus built Bayside with the dedication, precision and sheer will that defines him as a golfer. The result?

Bayside is truly a memorable golf experience offering variety rarely found elsewhere.

There’s not a single weak hole here; they’re all tough and handsome.

Phenomenal golf course. Very challenging, but very playable, forcing you to make shots. Filled with risk-reward options and various ways to play most holes. Conditions were fantastic, with true, quick greens.

Great course that is very challenging with great views. Greens are always very quick and the staff is always very friendly. I have played there several times and will continue to play there when I get the chance.

Greens held very well and were reasonably fast and true. Scoring is possible if you hit it in the right spots. Fairway bunkers are killers though. It’s a beautiful layout with many very appealing looks. I will definitely play it again.

This is likely the best course on the Delmarva Peninsula. The golf course is challenging, but worth the beating it gives you! Excellent conditions.

It’s really not that unusual, but every Bayside staff member I came into contact with this weekend; bag drop, pro shop, The Cove, and out on the course, was very courteous and helpful. The course was in great condition. What a weekend! I’m proud to be a member and so glad I get to spend time at Bayside. Thanks to you and your team.
