Course Reviews


Played on 4/6/12. Greens had just been punched, but still rolled ok. Course was in otherwise good (but not great) shape. Recommend playing blue tees for longer hitters / lower handicaps as the whites can take driver out of your hands for a number of the holes. Course plays fairly tight due to numerous OB and staked areas and wind is typically blowing. Worth the play at $40-$50. Look at other courses in the area if comparing at $60.

I played this course on 26 November 2011 a few days after heavy rain. The fairways were in great condition, though a little wet in the lower areas. Greens were very fast and not well maintained as they had not been blown off previously in the day. A lot of dead and dried up worms, leaves, and rough ball mark divots. The sand traps were in terrible condition having been flooded in the days prior, but no apparent maintenance or raking on the days that followed. Overall, I would rate the course a little above average. Certainly challenging, but would love to play in the summer when better maintained. Very surprised to see only a few groups on the course given 65 degree weather in Nov. I was alone, able to play two balls, and even repeat several holes without holding anyone up or pushing others ahead of me.

GolferBob hit most of my thoughts on this course. I personally feel that all courses in this area are overpriced...no matter what experience they deliver...there are many more affordable courses north of the mason-dixon line that play just as wonderful. Hollow Creek is a pleasant round of golf though as stated...way too many homes nearby to really feel like you're out anywhere...sort of ruins the experience. Feels like you invaded someone's private community. If you hit the ball straight, there is little trouble here...some rather short holes also. The course is layed out nicely and is certainly legitimate...definitley worth a re-play sometime.

Have played Hollow Creek several times, and always come away somewhat dissatisfied, as the course is very inconsistent in character. Front nine is generally very challenging, clever design, and scenic. Back nine is more like a bad example of a housing development golf course, with vinyl siding in every vista. Basic design is good, but the houses encroach, sometimes within 50 feet of the fairway (and sometimes almost touchable from the cart path!). There are several holes that are really noteworthy: #1 is a real grabber, a fairly long hole with a couple of wiggles in it, and deep trouble on the greenside left. #18 is also "interesting," with a very intimidating pond on the left front of the green. Maintenance has generally been OK when I've played it. Overall, the golf course is slightly above average, but not especially memorable. The Pro Shop is very nice, well-stocked, and the staff knowledgable and friendly. The 19th hole and restaurant, however, are much more expensive than seems appropriate, such that our group routinely goes across RT-40 to the pizza place in the strip mall, where a pitcher of Yeungling is about $7. The green fees here are also a bit higher than I felt they should be. It is NOT a premium course like Musket Ridge or Maryland National, and frankly, is not as interesting as Black Rock, which is much less expensive. Recommend you give it a try, but shop for the best price.
