Once Upon A Time

Once upon a time Bulle Rock was the best of the best public access and also held its own with the best of the private tracks. Played last fall and again today…while still a quality course, no longer a stand out. Conditions good, but not great. Once pure and lightning quick greens have given way to greens you can find most anywhere. I suppose when you set the bar so high for so long, not easy to maintain. The mystique is gone…so many comparable to better options.

Bulle Roack Review

I have played multiple Pete Dye courses and this one was my favorite. It was not all tricked up like most of his courses. Around the greens and off the fairways can be challenging, but the fairways are very wide, so if you keep it in the fairway then it is not a problem. Greens rolled nicely and were somewhat easy to read. Definitely need to have touch around the greens if you miss the green.

Good but typically great.....

Bulle Rock is Bulle Rock. One of the premier courses in the area and has held up over the past 20 years. I have never played in which the greens were this slow or untrue. Not sure if due to heavy rains the night before or another reason but not up to the previous high standards. Appeared not to be rolled or cut earlier in the day. With that being said, all other course conditions as what I have come to expect. Carts paths only on a beautiful day. Even with the subpar greens and paths only, still no other private or public course in the area measures up to the Pete Dye gem.

Fantastic but...

Best course in MD but the pace of play was frustrating (and no marshals in sight).

Front nine was cart path only. 85 degrees course was not wet.

My group was 4 people 74 and older . Front 9 was cart path only and with 85 degrees and know water on course left us exhausted. If course was wet can understand CPO. We drove 80 miles to play course.

Rolling wide fairways

This is a fair test of the game, first time playing only made a couple of mistakes on tee shots but they lead to big numbers, greens are firm and fast but still recovering from the usual spring aeration. Overall good value for the money enjoyed the round.

Awesome course and overall experience

This course is awesome. From the super friendly staff, to the practice wedge greens, to the driving range, to the course conditions, everything was great. Our pace of play was slow, but that's because of the guys we were paired with. It took almost 5 hours because of them, but we still had a very enjoyable time. The course was in great shape and was obviously being maintained..... great job to the grounds crew. Overall, a great day and we will definitely be back.

Bucket List

I have wanted to play this course for many years and never got the opportunity until today. I love the rolling hills and the Pete Dye design.
I will return, it’s only a 2 hour drive!
