BCC is essentially a rolling hills course with fairways lined by mature pine and deciduous trees that were planted in the 1950's. Even a few of the seemingly flat fairways have rolling contours, which were not by design but a result of holes from blasting trees and rock from the ground to create playable fairways. The scenic setting coupled with the well manicured tees, fairways, and greens provide members excellent playing conditions on a challenging, yet fair layout year round,
The course is essentially a nine-hole course, but it does have a separate hole for #9 and #18. While the 6,052 yard layout is not overly long, shot making is at a premium. The course rating for men is 69.5, for women 67.3 and seniors 65.0. The slope rating for men is 121, for women 104 and seniors 112. The tree-lined undulating fairways require accurate tee shots and then precise shots to small, fast greens, most of which are guarded by sand traps. Water guards the fourth green and members must tee off over water on the tenth hole. What makes the tenth tee tough is that sits right in front of the clubhouse veranda where fellow members love to heckle the players.
A putting green is near tee #1 and there is also an iron practice area. The course has cart paths throughout and most members have their own golf carts, which they store in the cart shed. Golf carts are also available for rent: they are on a first come basis. Members and guests are required to observe the 90 degree rule. Otherwise, all carts are to be driven on paths where available and should be kept 50 feet from all greens.
