Black Rock Golf Course
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.

Enjoyed the course
One of those courses that you end up using every club in your bag before you leave. I will return.
Greens and other
We weren’t told by clubhouse/starter that there were member groups out , and that we had to play the front nine twice. We got to 13 and marshal told us we had to discontinue back not play and go back to first tee to finish our round. We had to drive through all groups ahead of us, by the time we got back to the first tee we were over it and left. Really feel like a refund or rain check should have been offered. Also, greens were punched very recently and were very sandy, we should have been alerted to this. Fees should have been reduced even more, many courses will tell prospective golfers when greens were punched. I had no issues with the booking process, golfnow was efficient and easy to book
It's the end of winter and into the first few days of spring so the course still hasn't totally greened up yet but the grass is in great shape for this time of year.
Most of the sand traps are mostly dirt. The greens were recently aerated so they were a little slow and still had a lot of sand on the surface.
Even with the weather being cold, the course is very well maintained. Great layout. The fairways were in great shape, the greens had sand to cover the aeration i guess. Would definitely play here again.
Played the course for the first time in January. Was a fun course to play. Tee box markers were not out, so I got lost on a few occasions, not knowing where the next tee was, or the right direction to hit off the tee. Better markings during winter months would be more helpful for folks unfamiliar with the course. Course was in good shape overall. Greens were heavily top dressed with sand, but that’s not unexpected to run into once in a while.
Love Black Rock, challenging hole
Placement. Course is always in great shape! Bunkers were not maintained after the rain though.
Nice greens and fairways! Tee boxes could be better but not to bad. Pace was great! Exactly four hr round. No groups in front of us or behind us. Every hole was unique and challenging so it was fun. Nice public course. This was my 2nd time playing here. Price was good too.
The course was in great shape and the green were awesome! Bunkers suck so avoid at any cost as no sand in them. Overall excellent
Nice course, nice layout
Nice course, nice layout
Only negative for the greens. They were wet and I do not believe that they modem this morning. They were extremely slow. This may be due to the time of year as I’m not an expert. Overall, I would happily play this course again as I enjoyed the layout and the fairways and Rose were in very good condition
