I’ve played this course numerous times as it is 5 minutes from my house. It’s a fun layout with some interesting holes. It also has no place to warm up other than a putting green so keep that in mind. The course has been in pretty good shape this year with the exception of the bunkers. For the most part they are full of dirt and not sand, and it’s packed down pretty firm so you have to try to pick to ball clean.

Pace of play here is awful. Unless you are one of the first groups out, expect 5+ hours on the weekend. The staff makes no effort t encourage people to play quickly at the start of a round and you’ll never see a Marshall during your round to try to get the slow groups moving. Holes 11, 12, and 13 are all cart path only at all times so those holes play even slower.

If there were any other options with 20 minutes I’d probably never go back.

They would play this course again.

3 years ago, my son's and I walked off this golf course after playing 2 holes in 90 minutes on a Sunday...actually Father Day 2016. The pace of play was ridiculously slow and the tee times were way to close to each other. There were (12) golf carts stacked up on the 3rd tee box. They must lengthen their tee time intervals by at least 5 additional minutes. So, three years go by and we decide to give Bay Hills another try. I go on line a week in advance to make a tee time, for 11:20am, and after I'm finished making the tee time I never received a confirmation email or 'you have a tee time' web page. So I call the Pro Shop to find out if we actually have a tee time. The Pro Shop contact mentions that they are having problems with the website and he can make a tee time for me over the phone. He tells me that the 11:20 tee slot is full...but he can make a reservation for 11:35. A week later, we arrive at the course 45 minutes early to warm up and when we check in...we are told that our tee time is actually 11:25...however, they have 2 large groups currently on the course and it appears that our start will be "delayed a bit because these large groups typically take 5 to 6 hours to play 18 holes". At 11:55 we are told that they really don't know when we be able to tee off and it could be " 60-90 additional minutes and if we want a refund that's ok" After reviewing all of our options, we decide to get a refund and go to another course. When I attempted to get a refund, the gentlemen that operates the cash register in the golf shop was unable to issue a refund because I paid using a debit card. He could however, give me vouchers for future rounds at bay hills. I took the vouchers figuring I could give them as gifts to fellow golfers since I was never coming back.. Overnight I realized that I actually like my friends and would feel horrible giving someone a free round at this course. I went back the next day and the 'head guy' was able to give me a refund. PS After we left Bay Hills, we did golf at a public course in northern Anne Arundel County and met up with a 'single' who joined our group. When we told him about our experience at bay Hills he laughed and shared that he has had the same experience at Bay Hills himself. The rates at Bay Hills are low...the experience is also low.

They would not play this course again.

The day started off chilly but warmed up nicely. I am an intermediate golfer that recently retired. Therefore I am discovering more golf courses and the affordability of playing golf during the week on a tight budget. Golf Now with their Hot Deals is a blessing for a retiree that likes to play different courses.
The course was in good condition. 11, 12 and 13 were cart path only. But that did not deter from having a good day. I found the course challenging but it did not beat me up. I will play again and its a good course to test my progress.

Course was in good shape. Fairways were very good along with the greens. Even though some greens were aerated and top dressed they were fast and true. Although the course was pretty busy, pace of play was good.

They would play this course again.
