Bay Creek Resort & Club was home to two top-quality 18-hole championship layouts, the Palmer and the Nicklaus courses. Having opened as a much talked about 18-hole course in 2006, the Nicklaus layout was cut to nine-holes in 2020 when new owners took over.
Like its now truncated sibling, the 18-hole Palmer course is a championship layout that ranks with some of the best in Virginia. This tree-lined and open parkland course provides a wonderful test for your all-round game, with many attractive, skilfully crafted and challenging holes to enjoy. A must play if you are in the area.

The ferry service ceased to operate in 1963.
