Bay Tree Golf Plantation - Silver Course – Wide fairways; undulating greens and tree-lined approaches characterize this parklands-style layout. The Silver is the newest of the three Bay Tree courses. The front 9 is mostly wide open with a little water in play on several holes, while the back 9 makes use of doglegs and small rolling hillocks to penalize errant shots. Golfers should be aware that virtually all of the courses along the low-lying Highway 9 corridor have problems with “soggy” conditions and “cart paths only” are almost the norm. The Silver and her sister courses were recognized in 1997 by Golf for Women magazine as three of the top female-friendly golf courses in the Unites States. Since then things haven’t been so rosy.

Bay Tree Golf Plantation is beginning its 30th season of hosting golfers from all over the world. Throughout its history this 54-hole complex has devoted itself to providing the finest golfing experience available in the Carolinas.

Designed by one of Golf Digest's top ten ranked American golf course architects, George Fazio, Bay Tree has set the standard for other courses on the Grand Strand to follow. All three of Bay Tree's courses were carved from scenic low-country forests.

George Fazio was extremely pleased with the green and bunker complexes he created. The overall quality of the courses was quickly recognized, and by 1975 the PGA had selected Bay Tree as the site of that year's final stage of tour qualifying. The PGA liked these challenging, but fair, courses so well that they returned in 1976. Craig Stadler, Bruce Lietzke, Calvin Peete and Bob Shearer are just a few of the professional stars who got their start on the PGA Tour at Bay Tree.

Recently Bay Tree started an aggressive renovation program. Greens on all three courses have been rebuilt to modern USGA specifications, tee boxes have been added to all three courses to accommodate seniors, and bunkering and irrigation throughout the entire complex has been updated. The clubhouse with its panoramic 270 degree view of the golf courses now contains one of the finest collections of golfing memorabilia in the Southeast.

These changes will ensure that Bay Tree will be able to maintain its position as a leader in golf course conditioning and playability.
