Bayside and Bear Trap Named Best Courses to Play!

BAYSIDE RESORT AND BEAR TRAP DUNES GOLF CLUBS NAMED NO. 1 AND NO. 5 “BEST GOLF COURSES YOU CAN PLAY IN DELAWARE” BY GOLFWEEK

Selbyville, Delaware (June 22, 2020) – Bayside Resort Golf Club in Fenwick Island and Bear Trap Dunes in
Bethany Beach, Delaware have been recognized as the No. 1 and No. 5 respectively by Golfweek in the publication’s “2020 Best Courses You Can Play in Each State” list. Both properties are owned by Carl M. Freeman Golf, a division of Carl M. Freeman Companies, and are managed by Troon.

2020 marks Bayside Resort Golf Club’s 15th anniversary, as they opened for play in 2005. It is the state’s only Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course. The stunning course meanders along the Assawoman Bay coastline and winds through magnificent pine forests. Golfers enjoy three distinctly different golf experiences as some holes are richly tree-lined, others wind through marshland and some boast wide-open fairways.
Bear Trap Dunes offers one of the area’s most unique and memorable golf experiences on the East Coast. Designed by Rick Jacobson, a former associate of Jack Nicklaus, the 27-hole facility features three different nine-hole courses, named Grizzly, Kodiak and Black Bear. Winding Bent grass fairways are lined with native wetland grasses and natural sand dunes.
“Now more than ever are we seeing golf as an activity that attracts those that want to get outdoors, keep fit, but still maintain a safe and healthy social distance. It’s a game you can take with you through the twilight of your life,” says Michelle D. Freeman, CEO of Carl M. Freeman Companies.
