Cape Charles, Virginia (PRWEB) February 2, 2009
Bay Creek Resort & Club, an award-winning golf and marina community located in Cape Charles on the Eastern Shore of Virginia, proudly announces new awards from three leading publications. Adding to the club's growing list of golf and community accolades, Bay Creek has bee named one of Golf Digest's 'Best Places to Play' among the Wall Street Journal's 'Top 100 Residential Golf Courses,' and one of Golfweek's 'Best Courses You Can Play.'
Bay Creek Resort & Club is one of the premier golf and marina communities on the east coast, with nearly 1,780 acres of Eastern Shore real estate and two award winning, 18-hole courses from legendary golfers, Jack Nicklaus and Arnold Palmer. Both courses feature holes along the shores of the Chesapeake, Old Plantation Creek and other natural waterways. Residents can choose from a wide variety of golf course homesites, waterfront estates, and luxury condos and townhomes. The world-class marina, located in the protected harbor of King's Creek, with deepwater access to the Intracoastal, the Bay and the Atlantic Ocean, was recently named the best marina from Maine to North Carolina.
Not to be outdone, the two Signature Golf Courses from Arnold Palmer and Jack Nicklaus continue to earn top recognition among golf courses in Virginia and throughout the East Coast. Golf Digest named Bay Creek to its list of 'Best Places to Play' for 2008-2009 with a four-star rating. The most recent 'Best Places' list rates nearly 6,000 courses in North America and the islands, evaluated by more than 20,000 Golf Digest readers on a five-point scale. Currently, the magazine lists both Bay Creek courses among the best in Virginia, with our Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course coming in at #6 and the Arnold Palmer Signature Golf Course ranked #11.
Adding to these exceptional honors, the Wall Street Journal, in association with Golfweek magazine, recently named Bay Creek to their list of the 'Top 100 Residential Courses.' Each year, the publication sends hundreds of rating panelists around the country in an effort to identity the very best golf courses in each category. Drawing a distinction between exclusive private clubs with closed memberships, the 'Top 100 Residential Courses' ranks those golf clubs with real estate opportunities and family-friendly amenities.
And most recently, Golfweek magazine placed Bay Creek on both its 'Best Resort Courses' and it's 'Best Courses You Can Play' lists. Golfweek's 'Best Resort Courses' ranking recognizes not only the unique design and exceptional quality of the courses, in addition to Bay Creek's luxury amenities, services and recreation on the Eastern Shore. The highly acclaimed 'Best Courses You Can Play' recognition places Bay Creek among the top public-access layouts in the US.
"These lists are put together by some of the most knowledgeable and experienced golfers in the country," explained Oral Lambert, CEO of Bay Creek Resort & Club. "It's an honor to be recognized by any of these publications, and to earn a place in each of their 'best of' lists says a lot about Bay Creek and the caliber of golf we have to offer. This really is an extraordinary place to live and play."
