Legendary course architect Robert Trent Jones Jr. is the designer of the 18-hole, par 71 Bay Course. The world renowned golf course Architect has commented: "The Bay Course is sculpted out of the earth and rock of Greek soil, much like the marble statues of the ancients. Those deities were noble and graceful, and the golf course now reflects the same sense of beauty. This golf experience will last the test of time, to be loved and enjoyed through all the senses by those who come to play the golf course".
With a layout offering panoramic sea and mountain views, a unique feature of the course is its proximity to the water where some holes run directly beside the historic Bay of Navarino. You can also enjoy breathtaking sunsets over the Bay. The 18-hole, par-71 Bay Course, measuring 5,422 metres from the back tees and featuring four sets of tee positions, provides a great overall golf experience tio both Professionals and Amateurs alike. The Bay Course features amenities for your enjoyment like extensive practice facilities for lessons and coaching sessions as well as the ability to host full-service group and tournament events.
Set in a diverse, already mature landscape, the course has been designed to provide an exciting challenge for golfers of all levels. The Bay Course offers holes interchanging between three distinct environments of seaside, canyon and grove views, creating striking contrasts, blending seamlessly into the natural environment. The golf course contains olive trees some dating back centuries.
Very well-kept golf course that is beautifully integrated into the landscape, friendly staff, everything just as you want it to be. The construction site for a hotel is no longer a problem. Without a buggy, the distances between the tracks would really be too great, but these are due to the topography. We prefer to play more sportily than pedestrians, but that is not possible here. Highly recommended at any time
Basically it can be said that the place - is still very sophisticated and beautiful - the service is still very friendly - the facility will certainly be outstanding after the renovations and new builds
That you have to play the place with a cart has been discussed sufficiently. If you don't like that, you shouldn't play the course.
The course is currently in a very well-kept condition, but... - the greens are partly in an unfortunate condition due to the unwillingness of golfers to repair pitch marks - the same applies to the bunkers. Harken seems to be seen more as a recommendation
However, the slow game is dramatic. Due to carts, lack of understanding of space and ability to play. We canceled after 2:45 for 9 holes.
This course is not for beginners and a marshall or two would do fine. True to the motto "Speed up or pick it up"
Conclusion: it is up to us players ourselves whether we have a nice or unpleasant golf experience on this course.
We played the course in mid-November 2020 and found a very well-kept course with interesting holes. In the point of "playability" I have to agree with the prescriber: carts are compulsory and the distances between the lanes would be too long to run. Therefore, there is no sporting activity on this site. The particularly interesting holes 4,7, 9 (nice tee), 14 and 17 compensate for the loss of physical activity. The greens are all lightning fast, large and undulating. Since two new hotels are being built, there is construction noise on trams 15,16 and 17, which is a bit annoying. Nevertheless, the place is wonderful - we would love to come back!
