Love the branch
Great course fairly challenging very well maintained ! Will be back
Great setting for a fun challenge
First time here, and cannot wait for the next chance to come back and try again. Course was in amazing shape for the time of year. Couple of very small dead patches here and there, but certainly to be expected and nothing that stopped us from having a great time. Greens were pretty fast and in fantastic shape. Price felt like a steal compared to what a lot of other courses were charging.
Overall, the course is a really fun design. Lots of unique holes - a few short par threes and fours, some long, testing par threes and fours. A couple of reachable par fives, and a couple of true three-shot tests. Except for a couple exceptions, no hole looks or feels the same as the next. And the greens, beyond being in great shape, were all unique shapes and had lots of undulations and shelves on them. It being our first time, it was tough to know where to "miss" some pins, but it made for some entertaining putts.
Over half the holes wind through the woods and are tree-lined in some fashion. Having played in the early winter with less vegetation, that made some of our errant shots findable, but I'd be interested to see what it's like when things are fully grown. But either way, what's nice about this place is that most of those wooded areas are marked as penalty areas, so if you do hit into it, you can drop where it went in instead of having to re-tee/re-hit because it's OB, which can be a pain at some similarly-designed courses.
In a nutshell - some really fun holes, little repetition, pretty views, and elevation changes mean you're constantly thinking, enjoying, and involved in every shot. Would absolutely play again.
The course is in excellent shape. Kudos to the superintendent and staff
Played the course with my father for his birthday. Course is gorgeous really nice conditioned. But you pay the price for that
Very nice course the only problem was cart path only it had a few blind holes with no diagrams or fairway markers and very few distance markers. But the course was in very good shape.
All aspects of the course we're superior! It seemed pretty difficult to me but next time I will play from a closer set of tires.
This is a really pretty course with a nice club house/restaurant/bar. In terms of public courses in MD,, it’s top notch (along with courses like Whiskey Creek and Bulle Rock). Course is pretty challenging with difficult greens, which were very fast when we played in early October.. No complaints.
Perfect Golf Day
Course played at a good speed. There were some issues with the greens (fungus?) but only on a few holes and even those greens were playable if you worked away from the spots. Weather was perfect today and the course sets up with some nice holes. Good value for $62.00.
