Absolutely stunning golf

I've played both courses and absolutely love this place! It can be challenging if the winds are up, but it is always beautiful. The clubhouse had great food too.

Both courses are fantastic. Private club vibe. If you've played a Nicklaus and Palmer course you know Nicklaus makes em tougher. This place is no exception. From the tees Jack's course is visually intimidating but there is more room to hit your shot than you think as you'll see when you get out to hit your second shot. Arnie's is... More

This was the second year in a row that we have played at the Bay Creek Golf club. We have a "Mancation", because it is just the guys, and we played the Palmer Course last year and the Nicklaus this year. We are a group of about 14 guys that usually dress in some loudmouth type of attire : ).... More

Enjoy beautiful water views from most holes on the Arnold Palmer course. The course was in excellent shape. We enjoyed playing some very challenging holes, but not as challenging as the Jack Nicklaus course. The employees were very friendly and provided outstanding service. Our only complaint was the disappointing practice putting green. Otherwise, we enjoyed a gorgeous day on the... More

I have played golf here several times. Both courses are very challenging. The courses have always been in excellent condition. i suggest booking tee times at their website as discounts are frequently available.

We played the Palmer course. They also have a Nicklaus course. Great views, totally challenging, excellent condition, top notch carts excellent service. Kinda in the middle of nowhere but if you are in Williamsburg or Norfolk, Virginia Beach area it is a must play for any golfer. Imho a TOP 100 course in USA. I've played a few. Best in... More

Great golf courses. The Palmer course made me feel like a pro. I struggled on the nichlaus course, but it was equally, if not prettier than the Palmer course. I will definitely come back again.

Two great layouts with unparalleled views. Nicklaus course was my favorite, very challenging. Excellent facility with very friendly staff.

My wife and I played in late October on a stop ahead of a vacation to the Outer Banks of NC. So very glad we did. We only had time for a single round, so we opted to play the Palmer Course. Not cheap, but like any high-end facility open to the public, you get the "country club" treatment and... More

Great experience from the moment that you arrive and are greeted by friendly staff to help with your bags, smooth check in, and escort to the first tee. The starter sent us off with the most important fact about the course which was "remember to have fun." There are rock star practice facilities including grass hitting area, unlimited free range...
