During the summer of 2014, the acclaimed Bay Colony Golf Course underwent a strategic and comprehensive restoration. All 18 fairways, greens, tees, bunkers and bulkheads were replaced, remastered, refined and restored. At the same time, two and a half miles of trees and tropical foliage were replaced along the perimeter of the course.
Welcome the New Generation of Extraordinary.
It was with an eye toward preserving the integrity of Robert von Hagge’s original course design, while simultaneously improving the aesthetic beauty, playability, conditioning and technology, that the monumental course restoration was undertaken.

The master mind was completed in its entirety in just over six months in partnership with the original architectural design firm of von Hagge, Smelek and Baril, now Smelek Design.
As one would expect of Bay Colony Golf Club, the masterpiece was completed within budget and without any assessment to members.
