With the Tee Time Book, the cost to play was $29, which is a good price to play a round. Another new course as part of the Raspberry Trail offerings, I wanted to play this one. (I'm working my way around playing all the courses, and have played all in VA and MD, and 75% in PA.) The good aspects of this course are the fairways were green and like carpet (although a little wet from the overnight rain), five different tee boxes to choose from, and a variety of holes that kept it both interesting and challenging. There are several holes with environmental carry, narrow fairways/landing areas, and elevation changes. We bought a yardage book to ensure we knew where the carries and environmental areas were. The areas I thought could be improved are the tee boxes are a bit chewed up, the bunkers needed raking particularly after last night's storm, and there is no direct route to get to this course from the Baltimore area--my GPS wouldn't pick it up and the directions on their website didn't provide information coming South from the Baltimore area. It was a convoluted route to get there via MapQuest. Also, they had several wastewater treatment lagoons running alongside a couple holes, which was strange to be on a golf course. Only bathrooms are in the clubhouse on the turn. It was so hot today, it was a good thing the beverage cart was moving around. For me, it was an okay course, but not one of the Raspberry Trail premiers. For $29, it's worth a try, but not a course I personally am enamored with.
