The Bay Course is a The Donald Ross-design that runs along Reed's Bay and has a distinctly Scottish feel. The Pines Course, designed by Howard Toomey and William Flynn, is more of a traditional American layout set among the Jersey pines. Both courses are serviced a clubhouse that features a pro shop, locker rooms with showers, plus dining and lounge facilities. There are 150 yard stakes and sprinkler heads measured to the center of the green, with pin placement charts mounted on the golf carts. Practice facilities include a targeted range, short game area with sand bunkers, plus putting green.
There are 3 sets of tee areas that play to distances and slopes measuring 6247 yards/122 slope , 6011 yards 118 slope for men and 127 for women, plus 5017 yards with a slope of 106 for men and 118 for ladies hitting from the forward tees. There are 3 par fives - all reachable and 4 par threes with 3 on the back nine. as the slope ratings indicate, this is a player friendly design that can be enjoyed by all levels of golfers. On our visit, there was a tournament featuring golfers using hickory clubs and wearing traditional Scottish attire - a nice match for this seaside links layout.
There are 94 sand bunkers of varying shapes and sizes positioned near the landing zones off the tee or situated greenside. Golfers will obviously have to have a good and game to score well. Water hazards come into play on just 2 holes. The mostly raised green complexes featured undulating and sometimes crowned putting surfaces that are usually well protected by sand traps. Generally speaking, the mildly rolling fairways present ample room. Though not a long course, there certainly are challenges. Tall fescue grass is everywhere!
Golfers will appreciate the beautiful bay and marsh views. Walking is allowed and the layout encourages it, with tee boxes situated within a reasonable distance from the previous green. And for history buffs, know that the Bay Course played host to the 1942 PGA Championship, the first major win of Sam Snead's fabulous career!
