The gardens at Baywood Greens are a prime destination for garden enthusiasts. The landscape designer’s mission was to create a visually dramatic landscape that provides inspiration to visitors and promotes and conserve of the natural beauty of the coastal plain. Achieving dramatic and harmonious color is one of the guiding principle at the gardens.
More than thirty acres of gardens are maintained on the 500 acre property and include naturalized wetlands and ponds, woodland parks, mixed borders, and extensive seasonal displays. The most intensive plantings are concentrated near the clubhouse with an English garden, a wedding garden, a tropical and texture garden and a tiered waterfall and pond. Natural beauty dominates in the fall and the year ends with a sparkling holiday display illuminating the gardens with over 100,000 lights.
The exquisite floral gardens near the clubhouse are free and open to the public. Baywood Greens is an ideal setting for weddings, banquets, other special occasions, and corporate events. The clubhouse verandah is the perfect vantage point to enjoy a light lunch and watch the golfers on the 18th green. Needless to say the food and serve at Baywood Greens is first rate.
