Swan Point Yacht & Country Club
Situated along the shores of the Potomac River in southern Maryland, Swan Point Country Club has been ranked as one of the top 10 golf courses in the state. Golfers who enjoy playing in the Carolinas will feel right at home on this course. Water or marshland comes into play on 12 holes and there is an abundance of pine trees. The course is also home to a variety of wildlife including osprey, bald eagles, and deer. In addition to the water, strategically placed bunkers add another challenging element to the golf course. The par-5 fourth hole is considered the signature, mostly due to the challenging island green. Proper club selection is key in order to maneuver past the lake that runs along the entire left side of the fairway. The hole is especially hard on windy days.

Golf Advisor: Top Courses in Maryland
I’ve played golf over 40 years, and have been so many different courses surrounding Washington DC area.
I would give two thumbs up for maintaining superb green condition to Swan Point Yacht & Country Club..
I’ve had awesome day golfing this course, I’ll definitely come back more.
I just moved down here from NY and picked this course as my first to play . I now come once a week as the value and scenery is unmatched . A very difficult course the first time you play but fair as you get used to it.
Great Golf course
They have aerate the greens otherwise it would have been excellent all around!
A lot of greens did not have divots repaired , repaired a lot of divots along with mine. Poor green conditions.
I have been playing Swan Point for over 20 years. As long as it’s dry it’s a great course. My last round there however I returned to a cracked windshield. There are no errand ball signs. I provided my information and after 3 days I reached out to them. The administration office interrupted me and transferred call to general manager. The call cut off. Called again and general manager just said “And, we will not pay for it if that’s what your asking.” I don’t care to play this course ever again. Simply disrespectful and rude.
Good layout fast pace decent condition great value
Played on hot Wednesday afternoon, very fast pace. Greens in great shape, fairway a little too dry, bunkers in good shape, rough and tee boxes need some more overseeding. Friendly staff, course has ice water every few holes. Overall great value.
Going Downhill Unfortunately
I have played Swan Point for years and it appears to be resource strained. The Greenskeeper was in the process of rebuilding the traps on the side of the 10th green which is great but it was downhill from there. The carts were filthy (right out of the cart barn) with empty divot mix bottles on the cart. The fairways were abnormally dry and several greens were burned/patchy with disease.
Golf now rate is good but it does not include the cart. The cart was an extra $20.00 for a total of $45. Overall it still is a good deal but it is no longer the gem it used to be.
A great course worth the trip!
I play this course at least three times a year and I’m always challenged. I love the layout and the challenges that come with it. The trip is very worth it as you will have a great time from the first tee to the 18th green. Bring your A game!
A great day at Swann Point
The course is well maintained. It played firm and the greens were running very well. 1 or two of the greens suffered sunburn but they were recovering and it didn't impact play. Saw eagles, a blue jay, turtles, a snake and had to fight off a few may flies. The course is a natural habitat for different species of wildlife. Aside from fighting off the annoying may flies, it was a wonderful experience. I rate it as a "must play" course.
