Nice course... normally too expensive

I got a Red Hot Tee Time of 10:50 AM for Friday 2- Golfers. Booked it 1 week in advance with Golf Now.
We went to the course 45 minutes early. Parking lot was full of vehicles. Went to the pro-shop to check in and the Manager stated that there must of been a mistake, we are booked solid for this tournament that's happening today. they offered me a tee time for the next day, Saturday. We agreed to the rescheduled time. Only played the front 9 and got rained out

Can’t wait to come back!!!

My friend and I have never heard of Mountain Branch, saw it on special on golf now, and decided to take a chance. It was one of the most enjoyable rounds. The course was in great shape, challenging, very good pace of play. After the round we stayed for lunch at the clubhouse bar which had very good food and drinks. Lastly, the staff was very friendly. I’ve already told my golf buddies about this course and we cannot wait to come back!

Worst driving range value in MD

The driving range is the worst I ever been to. Cracked old worn out and unwashed balls for a premium price. If you pay for a small bucket you’re lucky if you get half of the advertised 45 balls as the ancient ball dispensing machine is worn out as bad as the balls. The mats under the roof are rock hard and will give you a bad case of tennis elbow.
The short game practice area is a joke. There’s a resemblance of a sand trap. Don’t you dare to use your own balls practicing there, the money hungry owner will chase you off.

Fast and Crazy Greens

The greens were really well kept and very fast. The hole placements were a little insane but otherwise I had a great round. Getting the ball to slow down and stay near the hole made it a challenge and increased my average by at least 6 strokes, but probably more.
