Course Reviews


Excellent course, while the cost is high try getting a deal through one of the discounted golf websites it will be worth it. Played the course this week, perfect fairways and fast greens. Plenty of water on the course and the mobile beverage cart visited often. Enjoyed a great meal in the Tavern after the round. Would highly recommend this course.

My first time playing this course. Playing it again will for sure help due to numerous blind shots. The course was in pga type shape. Tee boxes thick and level, fairways plush, rough was 2-3inches so you could still play out of it. The only bad part and the reason i gave the maint. a 3 was the greens. Very hard and fast. I'm a high ball hitter and wasnt leaving divots on the green. Like putting on concrete. Lots of burnt spots too. Dont get me wrong i would play this course again tomorrow but the greens were just horrible. Coast me easily 4-6 strokes. The views were amazing. Love the altitude changes in shots. Highly reccomend this course.

Very difficult for me on the day I played here as I was coming off a nearly 2-year hiatus from golf. Would love to try it again after my game has improved!

Excellent course. We played on a blustery May afternoon with winds in the 20 mph range with higher gusts and still enjoyed ourselves immensely. The amenities are nice with a convenient drink cart and well stocked clubhouse. The difficulty is high but not unreasonable. Stray fairway shots are punished however with tall grass. Not much water to this course as I think it comes into play in only 2 or 3 holes. Overall an excellent and scenic course. I will definitely play it again in the future... perhaps on a less windy day when scoring is an option.

Nice course but, this course kicked my b*tt. It is hard to get a flat lie even after good shots. It was a little damaged from the heat. I will play there when I get better

these are some of the toughest greens to read. but it's a fun course and well kept.

Where I do my golfing...$50 is over-priced. I realize that for DC or Baltimore, it's a bargain, but there are many...many...compariable courses for a much better value in Virginia and Pennsylvania that are also just as scenic. Maryland National sits in an area where all golf prices are UP...so I broke open the wallet for my once a year expensive golf experience. Drives off the fairway have the potential of going anywhere. It's a tough course with little room around the greens for error. Many greens are protected with deep traps...there is little landing area between. Anything that lands on the green will probably roll off, so hit the tiny fairway landing just before the greens if you want to be putting for the next shot. Some Par 3's penalize you strongly for missing their well protected greens with little safe areas nearby...you must hit the perfect shot. So it's a course that will give you a challenge...but not always the most fair challenge. Greens are well sloped and fast, and the pins on my day were pretty much unapproachable. As a 16 handicapper, I was able to keep it under 100 for my first time. So it's doable but not an easy course. The price is what will keep me away.

High quality challenge

I played this track for the first time today (6/17/06), and am thoroughly impressed. If you can stay on the short grass, this is a challenging and picturesque course. If you stray from the fairway proper, there is usually a fair manageable buffer area (10 yards or so), but beyond that you are probably into uncut tall fescue, and will be lucky to find your ball. There are also several very narrow lanes to get between the trees, especially on some of the par 3's, and some pretty small targets for approach shots. This reaches an apex at the 18th green, where the green is probably only 15 yards wide, and an approach shot 1 yard right of that is likely lost in a rapid dropoff (as mine was), and 1 yard left is caught in deep bunkers also well below the putting surface. Elevation changes are much more significant than you can see on the website. The practice facilities are first rate, and the on-cart GPS information system is very helpful in assisting with course management. Value compares very favorably with local courses with similar conditions and amenities.

Overpriced!

Memo to golf course owners - $50 is a good price point - not $75!!! I play too much golf to be able to afford more then $50 a round. Heck, closer to $25 is more my style. I played this course on punched greens, so I can't really gauge how they roll, but the course was in good condition everywhere else. I would strongly suggest playing with someone who knows this track the first time. There were many shots where I was left guessing where I was supposed to go, and how to manage the course. No clue. I love a challenging track as much as the next guy, but I hate blind shots, especially on a course I've never played. Just doesn't make sense to me. If you can get out for less than $50 then it's worth it. Otherwise, NEXT!!!
