Venetian Bay Golf Club is located conveniently between Orlando and Daytona Beach. Opened as a private course in 2008, Venetian Bay opened for Public play in November of 2012. "Play the Bay" became a phrase heard by locals and visitors alike as the course an clubhouse became a destination due to the player friendly layout. Experienced golfers as well as beginners experience the feeling of a "round well played" at an affordable rate. This 18 hole championship course is a must play for the Daytona/New Smyrna Beach golf traveler.

My husband has played at Venetian Bay before, so he suggested the two of us go and play 9 holes on Sunday afternoon. He discovered they do not allow people to pay for only 9 holes, you are charged for 18 no matter how many you play. But the fee wasn't substantial ($30pp) so we decided to go for it.... More

Venetian Bay, a semi private course, has tee selections for all levels of golf. The 18 hole course is over 7000 yds off the back tees and about 6000 yds off the white. The fairways are hard with sparse grass so that roll factors into most shots. Errant shots are penalized by the narrow fairways surrounded by sand and/ or... More

This is a nice place for lunch. You can look out over the golf course and have a lunch selected from a very varied menu. I was with a large group of ladies and pretty much everyone got something different making for a real challenge in the kitchen. They did a fine job. Everyone liked their lunches. I had a... More

The course is in pretty good condition compared to earlier this year and end of last year. They have lost a lot of players because of the price increase to play there. It is the most expensive in this area. What amazes me is you cannot reach anyone in the pro shop. Call for tee time no one answers. Call... More

This was our first time at Venetian Bay. It was a cold, windy, SuperBowl Sunday. Not the best golf conditions but we had a birthday wish to fulfill and went anyways. This is a beautiful course. Challenging and very private. Lots of sand pits and water. Clean large bathrooms too. The only negatives were that the course should have been... More

Had a round here yesterday, cut short unfortunately by horrendous lightening storm. Previous posts have criticised the state of the course, well the first nine are brilliant, a good challenge for golfers of all grades. The second nine is undergoing a lot of work but that's a small price to pay to play this attractive course. I called in on... More
