This could be one of the best little courses in the Metro area if it were only maintained. The track is nicely laid out by Ed Ault back in 1993. I have played the course a few times back in the day and found it fun and challenging. But that was when the curmudgeonly old lady had a golf course management facility running the place back in the early 2000’s. The course was in great shape back then. But I played it recently and lost a golf ball right in the middle of the fairway as the grass hadn’t been cut in what looked like weeks. The fairway was US Open rough deep, the greens were thick and bushy and the bunkers were hard dirt. Oh, of course the old lady who is infamous around the Maryland golf circles was as crusty as ever.

It is truly a shame that a potential gem of a course is left to die on the vine because of the owner.

OMG!!THIS LADY IS CRAZY! first of all, trotters glen is a good course for ppl who don't want ppl behind them while they're playing. But she, being similiar to the "SOUP NAZI" from seinfeld, is crazy and maybe even a killer. I was taking my girl out for the first time, so we were going slow, and she came up to us on the 8th hole at 6:00(we started at 4:00) with her Tbird, little car driving on the fairway with a double barreled shotgun slung across her back. She yelled that she was closing and we shouldnt take more than 1 hour and a half for 9 holes. NO LIE!!! Her rules state that she's open from dawn to dusk, yet it was hour and a half until dusk came. So my advice is follow the line and if there is no line, get the hell out of there while you can, cause she's armed and loaded. NOw a review on the course, it's not well maintained, considering the 190 year old woman does it single handedly, but it's good for when you don't want anything crowded.

We call her "Mazie"; beware, but a little kindness goes a long way if she attacks. If she's the worst thing that happens to you at Trotter's Glen, it'll be a good day, and you'll have a great story to tell later. We regularly play Little Bennett, Laytonsville, and Hampshire Greens. Trotter's Glen's greens are no where near as well maintained, but the scenery is among the best. If you have a bad slice, bring some extra balls for the lake on the 2nd hole.

I played there yesterday and everything started off well -- in fact a very nice scottish gentleman named Paul was running the shop/carts/everything (so we thought we had avoided that nasty witch everyone is talking about). Just before we started our round Paul warned us about the lady - since he was getting off at noon. Sure enough we were on the 17th hole and this little green suzuki sidekick comes tearing down the cart part -- the old witch screaming her head off at us about the course being closed and we had to get off right away. (It had a rained a little earlier but it was sunny at that point). Given that there is no "rain check" on the course and we were on the 17th we just ignored her and played out our round. We liked the course and the price was right -- bring your own food though -- the clubhouse has a bunch of empty snack machines.

I love the course and have played it many times. Yet the greatest threat is the woman owner everyone else has commented on. I too have seen and been the victim of her verbal attacks. It seems like she suffers from Alzheimer's disease, and it's a shame there appears to be no family to protect and replace her at the course. Knowing that she's probably ill, when I go there I know to ignore her and just enjoy the course.

After being chased off of the course last Fall by the now infamous owner, we decided to try the course one more time. The woman was less than pleasant as I purchased two nine hole tickets at 4:45 PM on a Sunday. We were told that we had to be off of the course by 7:30.

We loaded our clubs on the cart and made it over to the 10th tee and around 5:00 PM our round began. On the 14th hole, here comes the little blue car with the raging lunatic demanding that we play faster! I look around, there is one other person on the course - a walker who is almost two holes behind us.

While just leaving the 17th green, I see the car flying down the cart path again. "You've been on the course WELL over two hours. You should be finished by now." she says. I looked at my cell phone and it is 6:40 PM

We finished nine holes in just under two hours. My wife hasn't played many full size courses and we aren't the fastest players out there but two hours wasn't a bad time. If the course had been better maintained we might have finished sooner. The fairways and rough were in bad shape and needed to be cut. We lost balls in the fairway because they just disappeared.

There is absolutely no reason for anyone to support this course. There are plenty of public courses nearby that are run properly.

This was my first time at the course and unlike other people, I was rather impressed with the old lady. I got there around 8am and she treated her staff very professionally and with courtesy. Of course, I had read the comments as well as comments on other websites prior to me going there so I expected the worst.
The course is not too bad either, they do need to do some more maintenance on the fairways, but the greens were in decent shape.

When I finished my round, the business side of me just walked around and observed some of the things that they can do to improve the course.

I plan on playing there again to see if I can experience some of the things that others did, but as for now, I am fairly pleased.

One of the negative comments that I have was the dog in the clubhouse as well as the lack of ammenities. But I was there to play golf so it didn't matter.

For the price and location, it is not a bad place to play. Just a few minor changes and updates and it will be a great course.

I have played here twice and will never go here again. The old lady that runs this place is evil. She will never get tired of yelling at the staff or the players. She will threaten to kick you off if you dont play quickly or drive the cart on the path. Course was in horrible shape also.

Nice course, but watch out for the nasty lady

If you like getting yelled at before you even tee off, this course is for you. The woman who runs it is as nasty as can be - will threaten to kick you off the course and take your cart keys if you drive off the path when you are just paying for your round and saying nothing except exchanging pleasantries with the put-upon staff. She will also dress staff down before customers, which I don't need or want. I am hardly a biker type - mid 50s and nondescript - but I golfed there four times in 2006 and it happened every time. If it happens once more, I take my business elsewhere. Nice course and convenient, too. Too bad she's her own worst enemy.
