Best golfing deal in the area, bar none!

The course was overall in very good shape from tee to green. The rough was consistent and well maintained. Lots of water. Nice amenities, pro-shop. Affordable snack bar.

Course Quality

Visited recently to check conditions as I was considering joining there. The greens were good and bunkers were recently reworked. Cleanup on the course of trees downed from storms etc was improved. Fairways were thin and some tee boxes had grass patches for repairs. This course used to be very nice. Still needs some work and there was a recent fire to the clubhouse and restaurant. I’ll check back in a month or so.

Small group Texas Scramble

This was the 3rd time I have organized a small outing from my local community at the course. The layout is particularly suited to a scramble with 5 par 3 and 4 par 5 With the water hazards playing off the middle to back tees can be a challenge The staff were very helpful and accommodating. The cost was very reasonable. It is one of the best kept public courses in my area. I would highly recommend bay Forest

Worth the Money

Course condition was very good especially for the money. Pace of play was good...a very solid, relaxing round of golf on a course with greens that held good shots and rolled consistent and true. Would welcome the opportunity to play this course again.

Pace of play

The pace of play would be fine if the guys in the pro shop and the starters and marshals would tell the slower players to allow faster players to play through.
