Played during the week in the afternoon was not real busy. Fairways were in decent shape but the greens had recently been punched but were recovering. Still not a bad day considering the price.

Castle Bay is one of those courses tucked away off Rt 17 that is a hidden gem. The layout is challenging, but fun.

Golf course is in decent shape - especially for the price. Don't believe the web site - their restaurant is no longer open at all. And although they say they don't allow 5somes on their course - we were stuck behind 2 of them this...More

Best greens I have played on in a long, long time. Very challenging course. Fast, true greens. What more can you ask for? Staff is very friendly and are glad you are there. Castle Bay is a must play course.

Awesome place that is very friendly and reasonably priced, especially for military members. On Veteran's Day they offered free golfing for a week to all active duty and retired military. Definitely recommend to all.

I've been playing here for about 15 years and the course has remained as the finest in the area. Greens are first rate. Layout is fair and challenging. Course is well maintained. Recommend it highly.
