Bulle Rock

Bulle Rock is often voted the best public golf course in MD, or at the very least among the top 5. After playing it once again, I agree with this sentiment. I'm not sure it's my favorite course in MD, but it's definitely near the top. Course was in excellent shape. I love the layout here as each hole is distinct. There's lots of doglegs and water comes into play on several holes. It can be quite challenging if you're not accurate as there's hazards all over the place. The course gives you complementary range balls and the carts are electric and fitted with GPS. They offer everything you'd expect from a top notch course. It is a bit pricey, but you get what you pay for. The clubhouse and restaurant are excellent as well. All in all, I was not disappointed with Bulle Rock and I highly recommend.

Ridiculous restrictions/misnamed restaurant

If you have physical or respiratory issues, best find a friendlier course. Fairway markers (many over 200 yards from the green and all over 100 yards) prevent you from getting to your ball except from the cart path ( and that’s NOT when it is Cart Path Only)!
Ordered b-b-q ribs with steamed broccoli special and was served chilly veggie. We complained to server and asked for the bill. It took just under 25 minutes to finally get bill. Just ate there this past Sunday after an outing. Salad was not even close to fresh crispy. Chicken parm was over cooked, tough, and no taste of parm. Tough to cut so ate only 2 bites and walked out. And this has been going on for years so this is not an isolated incident. Won’t eat there again!

Cart path only

I must say that this is a great coarse. I am sad to say that the course was cart path only when the fairways where dry. If you have ever played this course you know how much walking is involved when it is cart path only. It was close to 90 degrees out side and the coarse also did not offer water on it. Today was a long and very grueling day. When I talked to the staff about why the coarse was cart path only he responded that the greens keeper leave at noon and he is aware of the issue. I will never play here again if it’s cart path only

Bulle Rock

Great course layout and somewhat challenging, but really why are the greens sooooo slow. For a premier golf course you really have to kill some flat 20 foot putts. This is the second time I played here and I think that the greens are always slow.

Walked

Cart path only: Course was dry even the rangers said it was crazy that it was cart path only. The one ranger said that the greens keeper, was a *** hole. According to the step counter had to walk @ 11500 steps. I do not mind walking and I am 70. I do mind walking in 90+ hear with an index of @ 100. Plus the pro shop staff think they are doing you a favor for allowing you to play there. BTW I did shoot my HCP which is 14.

Course slowly going down

This used to be the best course you can play in Maryland. It still has the pro layout. The conditions have decreased. The greens were slow. The tee sand traps not as nice as they used to be. I would still recommend this course, just because of the layhout.

Challenging track-always

It has been a few years since playing there last, but course was great. Rough was think and difficult to find balls at times, so definitely a penalty. Walking is tough as it is hilly and even with push cart , walking through rough was an effort. Greens rolled pretty true and were receptive on approach shots. They looked faster then they were. Only 18 was rolling extremely quick, the rest were not that fast but in good shape, just expected to be rolling like 11-12 (like when i played the course last)and they were not.
