Black Rock Golf Course may be one of western Maryland's newest courses but it's located near some of the country's most historic sites. Antietam Battlefield and Harper's Ferry are just a few minutes away from this scenic course. The opening holes of the layout are tucked into the Shenandoah Valley while the back nine climbs uphill, offering views that stretch across the Appalachian Mountains. The golf course has plenty of holes that will please long hitters, but mature trees and thick rough frame most of the holes, demanding accuracy. Traps protect the front of most of the greens and you'll come across dramatic undulations on some. The par-4 13th is arguably Black Rock's toughest hole. This sharp dogleg right has a massive tree to the right as well as a pond right in front of the green.

The day we played was cart path only, no problem. They just aerated the greens, no problem, a necessary maintenance. There were just two of us,no one in front of us or behind us. We played in three hours. Enjoyed the course very much.

Fix the toilets

Similar to the other reviews, only two uncleaned sani-pots for the entire course. You can do better.

Black rock

Course was in pretty good shape. The clubhouse is undergoing renovation so no amenities were available, only sani pots. That was understandable, but having the on course bathrooms padlocked I felt was inexcusable.
Also pace of play on the back 9 was terrible. Not a Marshall did I see.
