18 hole regulation length course
The 18-hole "Gold" course at the Wakefield Valley Golf Club facility in Westminster, Maryland features all the hallmarks of Maryland golf. Gold golf course opened in 1987. Hank Majewski manages the course as the President.
Wakefield Valley has three nines, Gold, Green, and White. Any two of them present a stiff challenge, with White tee slopes of about 72.0 and ratings of about 135 (the scorecard has the combo data for each pair). Course is usually in pretty good shape, although when I played it two weeks ago, the bunkers were a bit too firm. Rates are reasonable (Seniors play for about $30 on Tuesdays), and very competitive for the area. Staff is friendly and competent, and the pro shop is nicely stocked. The layouts are sneaky tough: fairways are generally wide enough for us mortals, and there is a reasonable amount of rough before the jungle. Greens are generally large and some are quite heavily contoured. Enough water around to keep one's artention focused, and the bunkers are very wel located. Some OB, but not intrusive. The principal weapon the designer used was length: some of the doglegs/bananas are long enough that it takes a pretty good tee shot to get into position to see the green for the approach. One other attraction is the restaurant over the pro shop, Fenby's, which is excellent, especially their Sunday brunch buffet, which usually includes a raw bar and champagne cocktails for about $20. I highly recommend the course, in fact, you should play all three nines to get the full flavor!
Maybe living in Charleston has spoiled me. This is a nice course, but I can't help but think that it would be about 15 bucks cheaper if it were down here. Course is in pretty good shape. Greens are very fast, but roll true.
