Course Reviews


Meh. Where to start? First the circus tents for clubhouse is creepy. Sorry, I feel like I am going into the it house to be killed by clowns. Slow ringing up of rain checks (no fault of the nice lady working) caused the starter to come to us and give his best grumpy "get going, you're 10 minutes past tee time" crap. Saw cart girl on second hole and then never to be seen again. No snack shop or even a vending machine at 10. Finish 18 in PA and drive back to circus tent in MD. Too many dog legs. Price is high for the atmosphere. Positive: 10-14 are beautiful holes. Been there three times and really never had an enjoyable experience. golf itself was ok, more like survive dog legs and tree hung fairways, but that is ok. everything else seems like "hey, we are wisp or fantasy island" or whatever it is called now could care less about that extra mile for the customer or hell, just the first mile would suffice. Other than one nice lady working circus tent the one year and cart guys, a subpar staff. go to Oakland, they are great there and the price/course is good as well.

Expensive round of golf for a bit of frustration....that's how I felt after leaving. I like the setting, especially in fall, but dogleg after dogleg gets tiring after a bit. Like someone posted earlier...it helps to have played the course more than once. Example: Perfect drive on 18-right down the middle ended up in a trap due to short cut fairway grass and slope. Tree in middle of fairway (can't remember which front hole) is a gimmic also. Tight fairways with trees usually on either side. Some long Par 3s and 5s and 4s are lengthy. Course was more for surviving than shooting a relatively good round. Liked the three holes on the other side of the road. I just think the designer went a little over board here...too many doglegs (think I said that before)!

The 4 new holes opened last week are amazing, the best 4 holes I've ever played, wow!

This course is has some fun holes but is spoiled by the maintenance crew. They are constantly in the way mowing and tending to the course while you are trying to play. It is a true distraction and makes playing frustrating. I had played this course two years ago and experienced the exact same thing. If you are in the area ignore this course and go down the road to Oakland Golf Club at least you can enjoy your round. To put things into prospective I play freqently at Andrews AFB and the military planes are quieter and less distracting than the inconsiderate maintenance crew.

If you are around Deep Creek Lake, this is a must stop for all golfers. Don't let the slope and rating scare you off. It is a tough course, and playing with someone that has played it before helps immensely. Yardage markers are accurate, the terrain is beautiful, and you never see the same hole layout twice. A new hole every time you step up to the tee awaits you. This is one of my favorite courses, and my challenge to you is to break 80 here....it aint easy
