Played here in mid January 2015 and very much enjoyed my 18 hole experience. Tight course built around the outside of a housing development, so while it was not the most scenic course, it was still a good golfing experience. Great traps and greens. Fairways were a little thin and brown due to the time of year.

We wanted the experience of playing a Jack Nicholas course even though we knew it would be challenging and above our skill level. It did not disappoint. The layout is challenging with lots of water, marsh, and sand. However, the tee options provide great variations and enable even the less skilled player an opportunity to test every club from driver... More

Be prepared for a tough golf challenge whichever tees you choose because this course is not for the faint hearted. The scenery is spectacular and the course was in excellent condition. I thoroughly enjoyed my round of golf.

First off, I am a relatively average golfer from Wisconsin, so the course layout and grass was not something that I am used to. Secondly, I played a round here with irons that I had just recently purchased, so I played a round that was mostly a discovery round for me both on the course, and with my new clubs.... More

Dont be fooled by the run down club house and facilities, they have put all their money in to the golf course. The fairways were awesome and the greens really held the balls. The views from some of the holes were great, we played 3 other courses during our visit with better clubhouses, but none compared to the golf course... More

A great course but the two signature holes were not available because a bridge was out.we played 2 holes on the meadows course but was't given anything for missing the 2 holes.did't say how long the bridge would be out. We're not all that friendly to me.

A great course for those that want a beautiful yet challenging golf experience. The greens were great and fast, people were exceptionally nice, the course layout was one of the best I have ever played, and the gulf views were spectacular. Staying at the Bay Point Resort for my non golfing family was an experience of itself with all the... More

I had a great time playing the Nicklaus course. The Nicklaus course was much more wide open than I expected allowing for driver off of most of the par 4 and 5's. I overheard the pro-shop people saying that the Meadows course is very tight. The greens were in good condition (not burned out at all) but seemed a bit... More

Beautiful course with a lot of water. Excellent challenge. Got a great deal on Golfnow.com for an afternoon tee time. Hot but course was well worth it. I'd play again for full price!

Very nice and difficult course. Better to be a single digit handicap or could be too frustrating. Has some nice ocean and marsh views. Water comes in to play on several holes but more often than not it is for decoration/mind games than real threats. Biggest disappointment was carts didn't have GPS (because they wanted you to buy the yardage... More
