Situated within a 1,700-acre property at the southern tip of the Delmarva Peninsula, the two golf courses at Bay Creek resort are laid out along the spectacular coastline around Chesapeake Bay on Virginia’s Eastern Shore.

Bay Creek boasts a couple of signature golf course designs from two of the all-time golfing greats. Arnold Palmer’s course was first to open and The King’s course debuted in 2001, five years ahead of Jack Nicklaus’s 18 holes, which is now, unfortunately, a 9-hole course.

The Golden Bear’s layout incorporates all the usual features to be found on any course – like ponds and sand bunkers – as holes weave around wetlands and water hazards. In addition, Jack cleverly included a number of large waste areas to smooth the transition from fairway to rough.

Jack is certainly satisfied with his design, saying, “I believe we have given everyone a golf course they can be proud of here at Bay Creek. It’s very pleasing to the eye. It has great views, particularly looking out at the water. It’s a very pretty area and environmentally sensitive.”

Jack Nicklaus

Jack Nicklaus will forever be associated with greatness on the golf course, but it’s his design work that should also be remembered in equal measure to his magnificent competitive achievements on the links.
