Open For Play (2005)

Bayside Resort Golf Club, Delaware’s first Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course, is conveniently located just outside of Fenwick Island off Rt. 54 and just 4 miles to the beach with gorgeous views along the Assawoman Bay coastline. Inspired by the surrounding salt marshes, meadows and magnificent woodlands, the course provides three distinctly different golf experiences rarely found in one course. The course is dotted with pot bunkers that help defend the smallish, elevated greens, many of which are surrounded by tightly mown chipping areas. First-time players often find it difficult to stay focused on each shot- the gorgeous views have proved to be distracting. A good round requires staying out of the numerous water hazards, which come into play on more than half the holes. As a group, the best collection of holes may be the memorable one-shotters, especially the 158 yard 13th, which features a carry over water to a small green framed by soaring pines and deep bunkers. Since the opening of the course in 2005, the club has made several improvements, including the addition of mature trees to fairways that help direct tee shots. The layout was enhanced in May of 2010 with the opening of a 7,300-square-foot clubhouse facility, which has a fully stocked pro shop, outdoor deck, fire pit, and the Cove Bar & Grill, already a favored gathering spot for golfers and residents.
The golf course sits at the heart of a luxury community that promotes a vibrant lifestyle with a mix of home types, variety of recreational activities, thriving arts presence, and a retail shopping center. Nearby the Bayside community are waterways, beaches, and shopping.
“Golfers at Bayside enjoy three distinctly different golf experiences all in one golf course. Some holes are richly tree-lined, others wind through marshland and still others boast wide-open fairways. It is our hope that Bayside is truly a memorable golf experience offering variety rarely found elsewhere.” - Jack Nicklaus
