THE BAY CLUB
Split Rock Village is located in the prestige, gated Bay Club which has set a new standard for amenity-rich community living.
Surrounded by stately trees carved out of 625 acres of untouched conservation land, the Bay’s golf course is the only Certified Silver Audubon Signature Sanctuary in Massachusetts.
The 18–hole championship course, designed by Brad Faxon and Brad Booth, measures up to 7,000 yards from six sets of distant trees and features perfectly manicured, bent-grass fairways and greens and British-style fescue. More than a million dollars has been invested over the last five years to enhance the course and improve the pace of play.
The parkland course welcomes all levels of players seeking a first-rate golf experience, no matter what the weather.
