Even in rain still great

I played yesterday in the rain and it was still an amazing course. Greens were fast, fairways were dry for the most part. A couple spots were wet. A lot of elevation changes and chances to use a lot of different clubs in the bag.

One of the top courses in the DMV

Gorgeous layout, fairly priced. Lots of tough holes, and several holes that are birdie-able even from the rough. A great course for those in the 10-30 handicap range.

Sunday Stroll

This was a bucket list course and it was great. The first nine holes perfect. The second nine was slow due to a groups of older players struggling. Our pairing was great and the green speed made you think. I will play again before my retirement later this summer. A great bucket course.

This course will get you thinking

I enjoyed my first visit to Maryland National, a very intriguing, well maintained tour on rolling land outside Frederick. Holes are split between wide open to fairly tight, presenting varying challenges. Seemed to play harder than the rating, but that was on a very windy day. Most holes have plenty of room off the tee with quite a number of downhill drives, but the rough was severe, not to mention the deep bunkers. Fast greens rolled true. The shorter, narrower holes present a number of options in how best to attack the hole, particularly the devilish 16th.

Not a course you'd want to walk, as the routing is awkward and involves severe hills.

Well-designed and well-maintained

The course is a really terrific layout and they keep the place in good condition. The course makes excellent use of its elevation changes, particularly on the par 3s; there are nice views and fun tee shots throughout.

To nitpick on the course, there are too many holes running parallel, in close quarters and without tree lines, that leads to groups frequently on others' fairways. Hardly a mortal sin but it does detract from the experience a bit...as you see other groups...frequently. And the 16th hole should be blown up and re-thought. It's a fine idea that doesn't quite work. But hey, these are still 17 fun, scenic, and challenging holes.

Fantastic course around DC metro area !

Arthur Hill courses are always challenging. This is by far the best course around DC area. Lots of undulations and you need to know your distance with loft to be accurate. Well managed fairways and green, and staff members are nice too. The only issue for me was it was too far from my home and holes are little tight together. You won't regret playing this course !

Keep Everyone on Pace!

Great course, sadly though there was no marshal to push the members who were 3 holes behind the group in front of them - it wasnt the frost delay that made for the long golf round, just flat out slow member play

Excellent Condition

Use the tee time pass to play Maryland National a few times each year. Course was in outstanding shape! Greens were very fast especially for April. Mondays are not crowded. Got done in 3hr 15min and found a dozen and a half ProV1s in the creeks. Have already told friends this is a must day trip from Leesburg, VA.
