Bay Valley Resort & Conference Center is situated in the heart of the Great Lakes Region of Bay City. Desmond Muirhead designed the golf course in 1973. The traditional layout is characterized by its very large, fast greens. Water is a prominent feature on the course, coming into play on 13 holes. The golf course is also well bunkered, but there are only rare occasions where you'll have to carry a bunker in order to reach the green, and it is quite forgiving even if your shots are short. The terrain is mostly flat, making it a pleasant golf course to walk. It's not the most formidable test, but it's an excellent option for advanced players looking for a casual round or beginners who want some practice. Bay Valley's playability makes it ideal for tournaments and group outings as well.

    This course is probably the best deal in Mid Michigan. If you book online, you can usually find a deal for $25 for 18 w/ a cart. When I was younger, this course used to be the cream of the crop in Mid Michigan with prices around $80 for 18. The course is no longer at that level, but still a good course for the money. It provides quite a few difficult shots and has some pretty good greens. I usually play this course about 20 times a summer, and always find myself having to hit new shots.. Very nice course.

    water, water, and more water.....did i mention water? makes a lot of holes challenging if your shots fade or draw to much its gonna be wet. mix in some nice tree lined fairways and u got a great course to play. id suggest on your drives you lean towards accuracy over distance/power. that will save u a lot of time hoplessly searching the tall grass that is everywhere on this course.
