4.0 out of
With the Tee Time Book, $45 on a Saturday after 11:00. Great deal for a Saturday! The course is in excellent condition, especially for a municipal. The fairways were green and lush...almost like playing on carpet. The rough was also lush, but they had it cut to a playable length--was a little challenging in places to get out of, but not punitive. The bunkers were excellent (if you like bunkers). I was in a few and able to get out easily and nestle close to the pin. Nice, fluffy sand. And, the greens were excellent as well...running about 9 on the Stimp, held the line nicely, and generally not difficult. The staff very nice and welcoming. The only reason for the 4 vs. 5 rating is due to the pace of play...ugh! It always takes 5+ hours to play this course and it's not because of the difficulty of the course! The marshall stopped to see us on #15 (while there were 4 groups on this hole) and said it was "all stacked up in front" of us. If I didn't like the course so much, I wouldn't make the hour drive from the Baltimore area--but I just am resigned that it will be at least 5 or more hours to play. Take your patience for the waiting!
