Great Layout, Poor Conditions

The good:
The layout is very interesting with some straight forward holes with tricky bunker placement and short to mid length risk/reward par 4's. I enjoyed the par 3 layouts with big green undulations. A few water holes broke up the tree lined course well and made for some dramatic tee shots.

The bad:
The greens were some of the worst greens I have seen. Some were shaggy, others had large patches of no grass. I was a bit shocked at the conditions. Some holes were in ok shape, but others barely had any fairway and just patchy grass and a ton of crabgrass.

Even with the bad conditions, I would play here again since I enjoyed the layout, the price was decent ($45 compared to the typical $75 closer to me). Grass can be improved upon so I won't give up on this course yet. I hope to see more recourses spent on the course now that the club house and amenities have been upgraded.

Nice course

First time playing this course the layout is very cool and some of the greens were wet I would recommend more draining set ups and sanding of the greens to improve the muddy greens. I played one of the best rounds of my life with 4 birdies and did very well so I had a great time

Burned

The course is reverting to its old ways. The old number 6 hole is on the edge of looking bad, again. Greens are really in need of closure. Some of these holes need to be shut down until they can be playable. Rough is too high when you have greens that are so beat up. Fairways are getting burned.

Great Course. Slow Greens.

The course is in excellent condition and the layout is great. Only complaint is the speed of the greens. Slow is an understatement.

Not all that glitters is gold

. New owners spent as much on the bar as they did to improve the course. Greens have been super slow for a year and nothing is improving with green speed. You can’t even put on them . Young starter has been rude multiple times . Dude this is Patriots not Deerfield. Overpriced for the Elkton market. You’ve put lipstick on a pig but she isn’t winning a metals at the fair. Rolling the greens daily would help with green speed but they refuse to spend the money on a decent greens roller. Staffer said we have a greens roller but it’s broke. Not a great place for above average golfers who know the deal ..

Needs mowing

Played on a perfect Monday afternoon. Waited for people to finish to get a cart. Driving range closed, greens needed mowed (furry and very slow) as did the fairways. Not a bad layout, just needs some work on conditioning.

Customer service matters

Course is getting better. Greens still a little long and slow, but also almost 100% grass covered. Noticed some of the greens they had shrunk down in size, but again, completely grass covered. No noticeable work done to the range yet, even With a scheduled opening of the end of the summer. Fairways are getting better. Occasionally had to roll the ball in the fairway to get a soy patch of grass, but getting better.
Played as a 2some at 12:50 on Father’s Day. Was worried about a potential 5 hour round. Another 2some let us play thru on the 4th hole. Got thru 12-13 holes before running into other players and finished in just over 4 hours.
The 5th star today is for the young cart person that informed us we could take our cart up to the parking lot and he would be happy to bring it back down the hill. Instead of just walking past us, he made a memorable impression and the 5th star for Patriots Glen. Keep up the good work everyone!!!

Most improved

Second time playing since May, fairways are improving, greens could stand to be rolled but are 100% better than past. Like the layout and can be challenging to stay in the fairways.

Much improved

I’ve played this course several times over the last few years. The course is currently in very good shape. You can tell that the new owner and management is investing the necessary time and money. The greens look great, though they run a bit slow. The fairways are much improved. Some tee boxes need work. Clubhouse bar just enlarged and updated. A great spot for a few beers and something to eat after the round.

Best Condition I’ve ever seen at Patriot’s Glen!

As someone that’s played this course a few times in recent years, this is by far the best condition the course has ever been in. Green’s are very clean and fairways are filling in nicely. New carts, new restaurant and a new back porch also help make the round and 19th hole very enjoyable. I would highly recommend anyone that’s played here in recent years book a tee time and see how great it’s coming along.

Great layout in OK shape

Played on a hot deal and it was worth it. Not sure this will ever be a $60+ Golf course. I love the layout with a variety of challenging holes. Long and short Pat 4’s. Greens were slow but in good shape just needed a cut. Course has had trouble with crab grass since the beginning but it gets better every time I play it. Prepare for ‘roll it in the fairway’ day to avoid tough lies in the fairway. Range was closed but they have plans for a state of the art range, ‘coming soon’. All in all a great day of golf with my boys. We will be back

What a breath of fresh air!!
On my quest to play golf in every state of the United States this course in Maryland was exceptional. It has been recently been bought by new management and they are certainly doing their best to make it an exceptional course for the price. The layout of the course was very easy to follow and everyone was very helpful and pleasant to deal with. And I hope that they send me their logo bowl to add to my collection. If not I will certainly stop by to pick one up and play another round
