Course was in great shape considering that it was flooded by Ida last week. Greens were slow from aeration

Still a keeper

CS is always an enjoyable place for a challenging round of golf, a great open course to air it out after playing tight courses as it is generally not as penal. Despite being closed for several days post remnants from Ida & a second severe storm with flooding a day earlier (the.course is located in a flood plain directly adjacent to the Monocacy River), the course was all over in good, playable shape. But for the traps being still flooded & a few thin spots in the fairways due to water damage, one would not know the magnitude of rain/flooding the course had recently gone through. Kudos to their grounds crew. As a native Fredericktonian now living in Carolina, I always schedule a round at CS when visiting the motherland. It’s definitely a way above average muni & enjoyable to play.

Greens and fairways were in good condition. Rough was not too tall but thick and sticky. Bunkers needed some work. Would play again

Diamond in the rough

Great course for the money - challenging but not too hard at the same time.

Great course, can't beat the price

First time playing in a course in Frederick, MD and it didn't disappoint. I've heard many good things about the golf courses in this part of MD and I must say, for one of the cheaper courses out of the others like Maryland National, Whiskey Creek, etc, this course cannot be beat in ratio of dollar-to-quality. $45 for a round of golf with cart. Conditions were great, staff was friendly, and course layout overall was fantastic. Would gladly come here to play again.
