Located within the Long Neck community in Sussex County, the pay-and-play golf course at Baywood Greens was being expanded to a 27-hole complex. If work completes, a sand nine, called Duneside, will be added to the existing Woodside and Waterside nines.
The 603-yard 5th on the Woodside nine is a very challenging par five, despite the generous width of the fairway on this hole, rated stroke index 1 on the scorecard. The second shot is played downhill to the lay-up area, leaving a short iron to a two-tiered green that’s guarded by a large bunker to the left side of the putting surface.The 425-yard 5th on the Waterside nine is another tough hole, offering two positional choices on the tee: either try a risky drive to an island fairway to the left for a short approach or aim for the safer option of the main fairway on the right, playing the hole as a long dogleg to the left. Some might say the hole is a little contrived but it certainly takes the concept of risk and reward golf to new heights.
