Bay Club earns its 7th Audubon Society Silver Certification

Wednesday, 23. June 2010 21:37

Bay Club at Mattapoisett Silver certification from the National Audubon Society

The Bay Club at Mattapoisett was featured in the June 2010 issue of Cape Cod Magazine on their commitment to “Green Life” and their continuous recognition from the National Audubon Society.

The Bay Club at Mattapoisett was ‘going green’ long before the term became a constant in the national energy conversation. When construction began in 2003 on the nearly 700 acre private club featuring a championship golf course, restaurant, fitness center, swimming pool, tennis courts, and lots for 175 homes, the club’s owners were already following guidelines established by the National Audubon Society to insure the least possible impact on the environment.

Including the managed landscape of the golf course, 93 percent of the acreage was preserved and remains green. We followed the guidelines 100 percent, says Jon O’Connor, Bay Club Golf Course Superintendent.

Island Creek Oyster Presentation and Cooking Class

Wednesday, 16. June 2010 17:54

Duxbury Island Creek Oysters from the Island Creek Company are the focus of the Bay Club at Mattapoisett’s upcoming cooking class.  An intensive crash course on how to grow, harvest, taste and celebrate oysters will be lead by  Bay Club Executive Chef Jim Mercer.  Chef Mercer will then prepare a few of his favorite oyster dishes and show students how to make some simple and fresh condiments to accompany them raw.

Island Creek Oysters was started by Skip Bennett in 1992 following three years of growing quahogs in Duxbury Bay.  After years of trial and error, and some undeniably delicious oysters, Skip and his team have grown Island Creek Oysters into one of the largest oyster companies in the United States selling over 100,000 oysters a week.  From the Atlantic Coast to the Pacific Coast, as far north as Canada, and as far south as the Caribbean, Island Creek Oysters can be found on menus such as The French Laundry, Per Se, Le Bernardin and even the White House.

Golf Course Home Dream 18

Friday, 30. April 2010 21:18

The Bay Club at Mattapoisett is proud to have been selected by Golf Course Home as a part of their Dream 18.  The GolfCourseHome® Dream 18 is a fantasy golf course created from the best golf holes from the more than 325 golf courses featured on GolfCourseHome.net, representing more than 5,800 golf holes in the U.S. , Canada , Mexico and the Caribbean .

The Bay Club at Mattapoisett’s signature hole, number 17, will be featured as part of the Dream 18, and is in the company of such notable courses as Reynolds Plantation, Tehama, and The Cliffs at Keowee.

Hole 17 is the Bay Club at Mattapoisett’s longest most demanding par 4 on the course, playing 487 yards from the tips typically into the prevailing wind.  The hole swings slightly from right to left requiring a long tee ball to set up the approach. The 2nd shot is plenty challenging as well, as the hole slopes downhill with a large green side bunker catching any short or left shots. A par here puts you in limited company.

Currently there is one house beautifully positioned behind the 17th green, while another magnificent house sits in the distance serving as the aiming point for your tee ball. There are two lots still available to the left of the green on a nice cul de sac along the hole, and one additional lot behind the green.

David Lott, publisher of The GolfCourseHome® Dream 18 visited the club last year, arriving in Mattapoisett Harbor by boat.  The chronicle of his journey from the Vineyard to the Club was a feature story on his blog this past summer.

The Bay Club at Mattapoisett is a country club with an eighteen hole championship level golf course and residential property located in Southeastern MA.  To arrange a private tour please contact Dave Andrews via e-mail or phone, 508-758-9543.
