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.

Fun Day

Stopped here on our way to Richmond Va from the Northeast. Fun round, beautiful course. Better than expected. A bonus, we avoided the Baltimore/DC traffic on I95! We'll be back if it fits our plans.

Great layout, great value, condition not as good as before

We have played this course two years ago and enjoyed the layout and condition very much, so we decided to come here again to play from 2 hours away. The layout and value are still as great as before, greens are fast with undulation but still fair, bunker white sand is still soft powdery and playable, the Bermuda grass on fairways and rough are still welcome changes from what we are used to play, and pace of play is good mid Sunday. However, the conditions on some parts of the rough is getting much worse than we remembered from two years ago, and there are some hardened bold unplayable patches on the fairways. Hope these condition issues can be remedied before our next visit.

Greens rolling pure!

I shot 41/41. 3 birdies! 3 putts on 8 and 17 ruined my chance at breaking 80. After the group in front of me for the front nine let me play through, pace of play was brisk!

No Communication

I made a tee time for Monday 26 July the day before. At no time did anyone inform me that fairways were being corred when we played. After complaining to management after the round, not much was said other than, I get it, you didn't enjoy the round. This is probably the third time this has happened. Twice before when the course was unplayable due to standing water in the fairways. Ensure you ask whom ever is taking your reservation if rain could be a course issue because they won't offer any info.

Very Good Place to Play

As I single it would have been nice to be paired up but no openings were available. It was a great day and the course was in good condition. Nice pro shop and the crab cakes were excellent.
