Golf now deal

Had a great time on this course today 1/19. Pace was a little slow ..no starter so that definitely would help. But for mid January the course was in great shape. Cart path only for carts. I could only do 9 because of the cold and they gave me a 9 hole credit. Great customer service!!! Will be back!!

Not worth the money

Bay hills has always been a local go to course. It is a small tight course. But paying $60 in the winter is ridiculous. Is it going to cost $90 in the summer? No thanks.

Play The Back Tees to Challenge Your Length!

Very nice course with very forgiving fairways and approach shots. I've played this course in the summer and just now in the winter, and they do a good job with course maintenance year round - especially during COVID. Friendly staff, great value and I'll be returning.

Worth a trip

The "Hill" in the name is accurate. Sometimes you're shooting uphill, and sometimes you're shooting downhill. Nothing too extreme, but you have to take into account club adjustments. The leaves were pretty much gone on the day I played. The fairways have some rough places, but there was a lot of traffic this year. The greens were in rolled well. I played at a discount to the normal rate and it was a good value for me.

Come on man..

Blow the leaves off the course! Can't believe it was 60 bucks and you can't even find a ball on the fairway. Love the layout of this course but its in need of some serious attention before someone buys it and builds houses on it..

Wow

Finally got a chance to play here and of course it rained all morning. We decided to wait it out and we were rewarded. The course and especially the greens dried very quickly. The course played great. Hats off to grounds crew. My only concerns were that the upstairs bar and lounge were closed. Otherwise I can’t wait to go back and play there again.

Great Golf Course / Hidden Gem

Bay Hills in Arnold is still a great golf course. The folks there are so nice and course in good condition. Fall golfing was pleasant and pace was comfortable. Respectful of COVID and will certainly go back again.

As some have said, a hidden gem! I have lived in Annapolis for years but never played here. I was very impressed with the course, the condition and the layout.
The greens were fast, the fairways good and you can hit the ball.
I look forward to playing there again and have already told many friends.

Short and challenging course

This course doesn’t disappoint! Just when you think you read the greens correctly ...,,you remember the challenging part.

Very peaceful course and the staff is very nice and accommodating.

slow, slow, slow

ten times slower than i would have expected for a tuesday in october. we were waiting for the group in front of us on almost every shot. played through twice throughout the day and never eased up. me and my playing partners are in late 20s/early 30s and the other players were all seniors which plays into it but still could see guys just standing around when they were cleared to hit. marshall was busy throughout the round. some holes could use a leaf blower even in fairways. best part of the round was the weather.

Hello, thank you for reviewing the course. We would like to apologize for the delay of play during your round. Please know that this is by no means the standard we strive to achieve. With an uncharacteristically full day, we work hard to accommodate everyone who visits our course and allow our guest the chance to complete their rounds. With that in mind, we are working to best control pace and allow everyone to finish in a reasonable amount of time. We will continue to look for ways to improve by using your comments as guidance. Thank you for playing Bay Hills Golf Club. We hope to see you again soon.
