Rough and Greens

The rough has not been mowed in a week or so. The greens are half dead and not mown. Bring a Crockett Mallet. Extremely slow and horrible condition. I don't think the tee boxes have been mowed in several days either. I realize its spring butbthevgreens are 1/2 dead.

Unfriendly staff

The staff is very unfriendly and rude. The only reason I would go is because it is close to my house.

Maybe Next Year

The first 9 holes closed was the first indication things were not good.

No grass in the fairways to speak of, yet the carts are path only for an inexplicable reason.

Greens are patchy.

No grill or beverage cart.

But it was $21.99 for 18 holes.

I actually love the course when it’s maintained.

Take what you can get

Was the only place that had available tee time. Fairways were ok, greens not so great. Prices were good so it is a good value.

Good, not anything special.

I played with 1 friend and the pace of play was great. In and out easily. Both of us are by no means spectacular golfers but we managed to birdie and par some holes. Cart girls were still out and about checking in every 25-30 mins, great job. Overall good experience and will keep coming back.

Management doesn’t care

I played the day after Thanksgiving the weather was nice how to play anywhere at the end of December is A Plus in Maryland.
The condition of the cost was fair at best there were large spots of no grass on greens, Since most of the holes are par threes you would expect there to be sand not dirt Mixed with rocks in the traps
But what I don’t understand is that the very many bushes placed for errant balls planted by the course are all sticky bushes preventing you from getting your balls
