The Bay Club encompasses 625 acres (with 300 acres of adjacent conservation land) of which the country club and golf course occupy 200 acres. The community and club are proud to be a Certified Silver Audubon International Signature Sanctuary with championship golf, (4) lighted Har-tru Tennis courts and (2) lighted Paddle Courts, an outstanding sports and fitness complex, junior Olympic swimming pool and year-round fine dining. The Club completed the installation of a Rain Bird IC System with Golf Water and Tanto Irrigation in the Spring of 2023.

Golf Course and Practice Facility Description:

The course opened for play on July 1, 2004. The golf course was designed by Brad Faxon and partner Brad Booth of Faxon/Booth Golf Design. The course boasts multiple tee boxes with generous fairways and large bent grass greens. In addition to the 18 holes of championship golf covering 200 acres, the practice facility is 320 yards long allowing dual use from each end, (1) putting green, (1) Himalayan putting green (long, lots of slope) used for juniors and family fun and a Faxon designed short game area. To reduce practice tee turf wear, the club also has a new synthetic turf available for use. The course has gone through several renovations through the years with significant redesigns performed on holes 1, 5, 7, 8, 9, 10, and 15. Additionally, 50+ acres of fescue have replaced bluegrass and reduced the formal turf footprint while greatly improving the aesthetics and visuals of many holes.
