If you even know where the Delmarva Peninsula is, you probably do not think of it as a golf retirement destination. But 10 miles from one of the manmade wonders of the world, the Chesapeake Bay Bridge-Tunnel, and two miles from a tiny but bustling little town of Cape Charles, VA, lies the Bay Creek golf community and resort, home to two excellent golf courses, one by a guy named Palmer and the other by a guy named Nicklaus.
I am at Bay Creek for the ODAC (Old Dominion Athletic Conference) championships. The Washington & Lee Generals, my son’s team, leads by a mere two strokes after the first of three rounds. I will be meeting with representatives of Bay Creek and taking plenty of photos on the two courses and will provide my review here in the coming days.
Delmarva, by the way, is an amalgam of Delaware, Maryland and Virginia, the three states that form that stalactite of a land mass southeast of Philadelphia that stretches to the Chesapeake Bay.
