We have group that has travelled to Virginia Beach for over 20 years for our golf trip and Bay Creek was always one of the courses we loved playing every year. Excellent course and beautiful. Very unfortunate they went to members only and we can no longer enjoy this course. Hopefully they will reconsider some time in the future.

Don't hesitate to play these gems. Our 4some consisted of 2,3,10, & 12 handicappers and had a blast playing in windy conditions the first day and perfect conditions the second day. 54 holes in 2 days in the fall just as the Bermuda was going dormant. We rented a house in a community in Cape Charles right on the Chesapeake which made for awesome sunsets and could walk to the marina for a good dinner.

Played both Jack and Arnold's courses: Well maintained, pleasant staff, lunch was good at Club House.
Beautiful area. It was September and town was semi-desserted Saturday evening, so probably a great vacation local. Enjoyed a good breakfast at Coffee House, much more then a coffee house, full on restaurant.

Loved the private beach access with rubber mats for ease of pulling wagon with all beach gear! Had the beach all to ourselves! Liked the upscale gated community. Shopping down by the public beach was also very nice. Dinner at sunset on the outside deck overlooking the water was breathtaking. I don't play golf but the grounds were immaculately kept!

Two fabulous courses designed by Nicholas and Palmer! Views of the Chesapeake are delightful and the entire property is well maintained with lovely homes, a nice club house and a good restaurant.

Love the courses. Played practice rounds on Nickolous and Palmer courses. Courses are in great shape. Unless there’s an event going on, the restaurant and courses are pretty quite

April 27, 28 and 29 Visit. Practice round on Friday and played two one day tournaments on Saturday (Palmer Course) and Sunday (Nicklaus Course). Small tournaments with about 20 players each day give or take. Nice pro shop and restaurant. Very good service. Golf courses in good shape. Great greens and fairways. Better than average bunkers. Driving range ok. Large practice putting and chipping green. Great setting. Will certainly return. Highly recommend!!

This club has a Palmer and a Nicholas course. They are both excellent but different courses. Can't remember which is which but one has some holes on the Chesapeake Bay. Have been there three times from Baltimore and will go back.

I just returned from a three day golf trip with typical foursome of avid golfing buddies and have to say Bay Creek was not as nice as expected. We played four rounds (two at each course) and while we found the layout and scenery to be incredible and the course well designed, the bunkers, greens, and even cart paths were less than desirable.

More specifically the bunkers were all hard packed with mostly dirt and small rocks instead of sand. Anytime we were in a bunker the punishment was no less than 2-3 additional strokes to either get softly, or fly you ball 80 unintentional yards. Several of the greens also seemed to be deteriorating around their edges as the grass had died and their was large patches of dark bare earth to putt from. Finally 80% of the course has dirt/sand paths instead of pavement so anyone in the trail cart was treated to a dust bath that required a large distance between carts to allow dust to settle.

We play a lot of golf and understand it is not possible to maintain a perfect ideal conditioned course. However this resort and prestige behind the location and pedigree of design team we all believed a much better round of golf was to be had.

Overall we give this a 3 out of 5 stars, which could easily be a 5 out of 5 with some upgrades to bunkers, greens, and cart paths.

We stayed at the resort and played both golf courses which were in excellent condition. We felt that everything was great including the grounds, pools and beach
