A Legendary Golf Experience

Bay Creek’s golf is widely known and highly acclaimed. Preserve Communities has taken a proactive approach in identifying and improving key factors in the golfing experience here.

Golf at Bay Creek is nothing short of magnificent. Golf Digest has consistently named the community’s golf among the best in Virginia, while Golf World ranked Bay Creek 12th in its list of top golf resorts in America. And while we appreciate the recognition, the most valued endorsement is from the Members who love the Bay Creek golf experience.

Bay Creek is home to a collection of 27 remarkable holes of nationally acclaimed golf by Arnold Palmer and Jack Nicklaus. With holes that wind throughout woodlands and waterways, offering breathtaking Chesapeake Bay views, the play is as scenic as it is unique.

Arnold Palmer


With four holes on the shores of the Chesapeake Bay, eight holes on Old Plantation Creek and several holes framed by sand dunes and large beach bunkers, the Palmer Course is a nature lover’s delight. The 7,250-yard championship course pampers its golfers with smooth A-4 greens and perfectly manicured Tifway 419 Bermuda fairways. Five strategically placed sets of tees are guaranteed to make golf fun and challenging for players of all skill levels. The course opened in 2001 and has earned yearly rankings on national award lists.
