Hole #1 “Rising Sun” — A beautiful and intimidating drive to start your day is par for both of Chesapeake Bay Golf Club’s Courses. Watch the sunrise, but be mindful of the two ponds bordering the landing area. Bunkers on both sides of an elevated green will guard your second shot.
Hole #2 “Cooked Crick” — A stream runs along the left side, bunkers on both sides of this two tiered green, and azaleas surrounding the backdrop make this a great hole. Club selection is key! Be careful not to go over the green, it makes for a tough up and down.
Hole #3 “Guarded Grove” — Out of bounds extends from tee to green on the left with trees on the right. A good drive leaves you with a short iron to a flat green. There are two bunkers on each side of this green, a Chesapeake Bay Golf Club trademark.
Hole #4 “Winged Preserve” — Our Signature Hole! This hole demands a perfect tee shot. With out of bounds left and a pond right, you might want to hit a 3 wood or long iron — straight is critical. The second shot is to an elevated green with a bunker on the right.
Hole #5 “Cape Courage” — A beautiful Par 3 and certainly the hardest of all the Par 3’s at Chesapeake Bay Golf Club. Hit a long iron to the green. The green has a large bunker left and water surrounding the right and back sides.
Hole #6 “Drawer’s Dream” — If you hit a big tee shot avoiding the large fairway bunker running down the left side, you have a chance to get home in two. Laying up inside the 150 yard marker leaves you with an easy shot to a large scenic green with a bunker flanking the left side.
Hole #7 “Buttercut Acre” — A true dogleg right. Be careful on the tee as you may find the trees. An elevated second shot to a large green with two bunkers and a pond guarding the left side will test your skills.
Hole #8 “Bass Bridge” — Driving over the pond is more for looks than distance. Hitting your tee 200 yards leaves you with a short second shot. Hit between the two bunkers to the flattest green you will play all day.
Hole #9 “Heron’s Haven” — Hit your driver straight or lay back with a long iron or 3 wood as there are ponds at the bottom of the hill on each side of the fairway that are reachable. After you hit a dry piece of land, be ready for a long second shot to a two tiered elevated green. This green is protected by three bunkers. Heron’s Haven is the toughest Par 4 on the course.
Hole #10 “Memory Lane” — Out of bounds right and large trees make for a narrow landing for your drive. Pay attention to pin locations for your second shot. This is a deeper green than it looks. Carry the bunker on the left and make an easy par.
Hole #11 “Redbud Run” — Keep your drive to the left side of the fairway – everything falls right. Out of bounds and trees on the right make you aim left anyway. A short second shot to a small green with a false front and a greenside bunker make hitting the green in regulation a must to make par.
Hole #12 “Terrapin’s Turf” — Out of bounds runs all they way down the right of this dogleg right hole. A long iron off the tee is the smart play, however most try to cut the corner and go for the green. Staying short of the green on your second shot is a must. This severely sloped green is protected by bunkers and is the toughest green on the course to putt.
Hole #13 “Lookout Point” — A hole that many won’t reach in regulation. Allowing for the wind is a key element in correct club selection on this hole. A long elevated tee shot to a green protected by greenside bunkers makes for a great Par 3.
Hole #14 “Victory Valley” — This is the longest hole at Chesapeake Bay Golf Club. From tee to green there is out of bounds on the right. A drive down the right side of the fairway is better for distance, but gutsy to try. If you decided to lay up short of the creek in the valley, you would hit your third shot into the elevated green. Being on the same level with the pin is very difficult yet important in scoring well on this two tiered green.
Hole #15 “Towering Pines” — The shortest hole on the course is set up with two greenside bunkers to a flat green. Everything drains to the front of this green, as do the putts.
Hole #16 “Chantilly Manor” — A hole that many won’t reach in regulation. Allowing for the wind is a key element in correct club selection on this hole. A long elevated tee shot to a green protected by greenside bunkers makes for a great Par 3. A drive needs to be straight in order to have a long second shot to a large green. The green is protected on both sides by two bunkers. Stay away from the left one. Par here is a great score. Beautiful views of our 1800s Manor House.
Hole #17 “Chapel Hill” — Tee off by our Lakeview Arbor on the Lawn. Troublesome bunkers and grassy knolls lie on the right side of this fairway. A tee shot to the left of this area leaves a short second shot to the green. The green is surrounded by a bunker on the right, and a pond on the left.
Hole #18 “Crowning Glory” — A large pond runs down the right side of this dogleg Par 5. The closer to the pond, the shorter the second shot. Send your second shot over some trees to a green that has a bunker short and a larger one left. Or play to the bottom of the hill and take your chances with your wedge. A beautiful finishing hole. Many tournaments will be won on this hole!
