This is my favorite course in the Annapolis area, but it is in relatively rough shape right now. The fairways are looking good, and a lot of the greens are ok, but there are a lot with patches of dirt too. They were aerated several weeks ago, and the aeration holes are growing in, but make for a rough surface. The greens are a bit faster than they have been most of the summer, but still slower and softer than other more expensive courses in the area (South River, Renditions). The tees have lots of weeds and dirt and some are so hard, you can't find a place to put your tee in without breaking it.
In general I recommend this course. It has a good setup, is walkable, and fair. The fairways are wide and more forgivable than courses found in developments. There are a lot of woods, but there are also a lot of areas that you can play out of them, which allows for some errant tee shots.
There is little if any ranger managing pace of play on most days, especially during the week, and the rounds can get in the 4.5-5 hour range especially in the afternoon. The staff is generally nice, but one starter is always a bit gruff. The cart vendor is available most days and there is a decent snack shop for snacks and hot items. They will often set up a grill outside on the weekends and for outings.
