Pure Quality Golf – The Founding Members had a vision and a commitment to quality when Bayville Golf Club was planned. The vision of “pure quality golf” transformed a spacious 268 acre dairy farmland site into a Tom Fazio superlative golf experience for its members. Bayville Golf Club is now one of America’s most prestigious private clubs – the Founding Members’ vision is now an experience enjoyed by its members.
No Tee Times – Membership at Bayville is limited to 300 members. This allows club members flexibility to play at their leisure.
Diverse Membership – Bayville has an extremely diverse membership. The Club considers every membership application without regards to gender, race, creed, color, or national origin. Prominent leaders in both the Hampton Roads and Richmond area have joined Bayville to have the finest golfing experience at their fingertips.
World Class Practice Facility – Bayville’s 16 acre state-of-the-art practice facility is a golf perfectionist’s dream and a “game in itself.” Our practice area allows members to perfect both their short and long game.
PGA Professionals – Bayville has the finest PGA Professionals in the region. The PGA Professional staff is an exemplary group of experienced teaching professionals. Their professionalism and knowledge of the game of golf is a major asset to the members of the club. This group is led by Dean Hurst, who has been on board since the founding of the Club. Dean was named “2007 PGA Professional of the Year” by the Middle Atlantic PGA association. Bayville also has a full time Director of Instruction, Carlton Dove. Carlton offers a wide variety of instructional programs, as well as fitness classes.
Matchmaking - Because of the longevity of our PGA Professionals, matchmaking is very easy for new members of the club. Our professionals will help pair you with players of similar abilities. Members of Bayville can also play in the weekly Saturday morning game. This allows members of all playing abilities to arrive and be paired up by our professional staff. This is a great way to meet new friends and playing partners here at the club. The Saturday morning game is open to both men and women of varying handicaps.
