Bay Creek marks the first time Jack Nicklaus and Arnold Palmer designed courses for the same club, and the golf legends did not disappoint. The two 18-hole Signature Courses combine the extraordinary views and natural features of the Eastern Shore and the Chesapeake Bay with historical landmarks from Cape Charles' 19th and early 20th century railroad days, all into one incredible state-of-the-art golf facility.

The courses have been designed with multiple tee placements that will challenge the low-handicapper while creating an enjoyable golfing experience for players of all levels.

The legendary Palmer/Nicklaus rivalry lives on at Bay Creek making it a premiere golf destination to be tested and remembered by passionate players from all over the world.
