Nicklaus has designed a lovely course that is quite challenging and I wanted to give it higher marks. But the $120 price tag sets a certain expectation, which they fell quite short of. I played from the member tees and there were at least two that were so torn up on a weekday 10AM tee time that I was standing and hitting from dirt. Several fairways were very chewed up as well. And despite no rain for several days, the course was quite wet in a number of places. And one really annoying thing...yardages are very poorly marked. I tried to use the phone GPS app for distances but it was very, very glitchy. I persisted but only because I was a single with a slowish twosome in front of me and because other yardage measures were unavailable. The price tag includes an electric cart-which can’t be turned down by non-members-but there is noGPS in the carts either. I don’t carry a range finder because I expect nicer courses to have things well marked...but not here.

I enjoyed the round because of the challenge of the course, but for the price I’ll not play here very often until the above gets addressed.

We visited friends here and were quite impressed. The Jack Nicholas designed golf course was in perfect condition with a fantastic layout. Food at the Cove was delicious and the concert venue attracts some great talent.

Great pools for you kids! The Zero entry pool next to the splash pad is great for younger kids. It only goes to 5ft deep and there was always a lifeguard on duty. On the hour they make everyone get out for 15 minutes. Sometimes they will let the adults stay in during this time but it really depends on the lifeguard. The paddle boarding and kayaking (free with card) were a lot of fun too. We didn’t golf but the course looked nice.

We stayed in unit 12272 on 8/1-8/5 2022. The house itself and grounds are fabulous. Unfortunately the inside of the home was dirty. Kitchen was filthy with food and hand prints on the counters and water faucets. The dishes had been shoved in the dishwasher and were still in there when we arrived. This would not have been so bad if the dishes has been clean. We decided not to use any of the utensils, glassware or dishes because we just had no idea what was clean. A cloth had been left inside the half bath sink (see pick) not even sure where that came from. Disgusting! Sheets on the beds were still dirty with spots including the pillow cases which was confusing because there was dirty linen on our porch when we arrived. Not clean. Dirty! which still had not been picked up by the 4th day that we were there. Not sure how long it had been sitting there before we even arrived. Outside deck table still had crumbs and food on it. We found tortilla chip crumbs within the pull out couch. Such a shame as the house was nice but totally disgusting! Also too many children in the large pool. The facilities offer a children's pool and water park area of their own right next to the large pool so I was surprised that there was sooooooo many children . I would have given this place a five had it been clean but dealing with the current environment it was just unacceptable.

Very disappointed with the golf course. Staff is wonderfully nice, but the course was in poor condition. In particular the sand drops were soaking wet and the sand rock hard even though it had not rained for several days. Greens did not appear to have been rolled all week. For the price ($120 plus per person) you would expect a course in much better condition. If we return to the area we will be playing golf elsewhere.

Really nice golf course with beautiful holes. Great layout. You can score here, but you can blow up as well. Pick the right tees. This course is difficult. Well maintained, good staff, it was in great shape yesterday when I played it. The greens are very fast with a lot of undulation. I would give five stars, but at the practice area the range balls are limited to a small basket. However, this course is well worth playing, especially if you want a good challenge

We came here for vacation with a 11 people and 3 families. The house and grounds are gorgeous, but there are several things a family should know when booking this "resort." First of all, this place is confused whether it's a family resort or a living community. The signage through the resort is lacking and makes it difficult to get around. The place is huge and finding the house without a gps can be tough for the first couple days. Also, they have a "stage" here that draws a lot of traffic at night, something I never saw advertised on their website.

Secondly, and the biggest concern, is that you pay for "recreation passes" to use the pools. For 11 people, we paid over $500 for the week. The pools are gorgeous and would be worth the price if it wasn't for the pool hours. The pools are only open from 10 am - 7 pm when we got here and now 10 am - 8 pm. The worst part is on one of the brochures, they list the hours as 9 am open time and so we took our 4 year old down there and got to hear him cry because they only open at 9 am for "lap swim." That was a fun morning.

The location of this resort is great, close to Ocean City, Fenwick Island State Park, and Bethany Beach. But the customer service is lacking. They are trying to be a quiet living community and a family resort at the same time, and it just doesn't work. The pool hours were so, so disappointing. I've been to a lot of family resorts and none have ever had such restrictive pool hours. Very disappointing for kids (and for parents whose kids have been up since 7 am anyway). If you have young kids or kids who like to do something before 10 am in the morning, this resort is not for you.

Thank you for your review and feedback. Please note we are a residential community and you rented a home from an individual home owner, not the community. We appreciate all guests to the community and strive to improve as we have made several changes in 2018.

Bayside is my new home away from home. The resort has all I need for a relaxing getaway. The home I stayed in was fully stocked and clean and close enough to Freeman Stage that we could sit on the screened porch and hear music at night. Lots of space to walk around and get exercise. Went at the end of June and the pool wasn't extra crowded, was able to get spaces under umbrellas. Nice to have a grocery store and pharmacy right outside the main entrance. Didn't take advantage of the gym or shuttles to the beach, but plan to the next visit. Brunch at The Cove on Sunday was great and well worth the price.

Apparently after much rain to the area, Bayside was in pretty good shape. Fast greens and nice layout. Slow play on the day we played but most likely due to the cart path only restrictions.
