Remote Bay Creek Resort and Club has been a popular public course since it opened in 2001. Some of the "front 9" of the 18-hole Arnold Palmer course play right along the edge of the Chesapeake Bay. It's a view rivaled by few other courses. A second course, the Jack Nicholas, opened in 2006. They offer Stay-and-Play golf packages, which include lodging at nearby three-bedroom condos. There are also a full-service marina, restaurants, and shops. 1 Clubhouse Way, Cape Charles, VA, 23310. 757/331–9000. www.baycreekresort.com.
