A Good County Course
Fox Hollow is one of the Baltimore County owned and operated courses. It still has one of the old clubhouses (not updated/renovated like Diamond Ridge), but it offers a snack bar with normal snack bar type food. The course is not very long -- 5100+ from the red tees up to 6100+ from the tips. It has wide fairways, some elevation changes, and some short scoring holes as well. With all the rain we've had, the course was pretty dry, except there were some soggy places on the edges of the fairways. The bunkers were dry and raked. And, the fairways were in good condition, albeit a little on the long side. My issue with this course is always the same--slow pace of play, and golfers who don't understand etiquette. They run a men's league early Saturday morning, which backs up the course. And, the twosome we were paired with with relatively new golfers (which isn't a problem), but they couldn't stay up with pace of play nor did they know course etiquette, i.e., driving while you're hitting, talking in your back swing, walking behind you while you're putting, etc. Unfortunately, I find this to be true on most of the Baltimore County and City courses as they have the same clientele...they need to read the Etiquette section of the USGA Rules of Golf to be considerate of other players. I'll stick to weekday play on this course.
Thanks foe the course info, but ease up on the new golfers. Did you try to help them? Did you work with them on your etiquette issues? It sounds like they were what public/muni golf courses are built for: learning, enjoying and growing the game.
