I Highly Recommend This Course!

The only reason I gave course conditions 4 stars is because I played the course in the winter and I really don’t expect the course to be in tiptop condition in the winter time, unless the course was located in some tropical climate. But for Frederick Maryland in the dead winter, the course was in very good condition! Will definitely play this course again…. Lord willing

winter round

Love Maryland National. Brought a friend who played it for the first time. He couldn’t believe he had never played it before. He’s a CC member in Loudoun County, but can’t wait to get back. And it was early January!

Great course, great condition

Played on Monday, 8am tee time. The course was in absolutely fantastic condition from tee box to green. No leaves were on the course so the staff was on top of it. Probably my favorite western MD course.

Tough love

I’m a mid-teens handicap, and usually play forward tees (I’m 75, I earned it). I played this course from the white with my son-in-law, and I have to say, it was an experience. The length wasn’t that bad, but the greens were omg fast, compared to what I’m used to. It was all in all a great round, and the course was a good test of skills (putting skills, for sure).

Challenging course

I am a 17 handicap and this course is a challenge for me. I need to bring my best game when I play here. It was cart path only when we played. I’m 68 years old and not in the best shape. I was physically drained after 10 holes but fortunately the starter drove up to us on the 11th tee and told us we could do 90°. Rest of the round was much easier.

7 hour rounds!

We played as a 3-some and we’re delayed on every single shot as the course was so backed up. It took over 3.5 hours for the front 9. We were then held up on the 10th and 11th hole. Finally, we just gave up and played the front 9 again. That was quicker.

I drove over an hour to get to the course and paid just under 100- to play at Maryland National. While it’s a nice course. I will never waste my time there again. At the end of the day, I told the guy in the pro shop and while he apologized, he said there was little they could do. At that price, I expect better.

Beautiful course in pristine condition!

Always a great round at Maryland National. Helpful, courteous folks in the pro shop. The course is extremely well managed - always in good condition. One of the prettiest courses around.
