About Wisp Resort

The Wisp Resort’s 172 acres of ski terrain are heaven for winter-sports enthusiasts, but this resort offers so much more year-round. It is an outdoor playground for all ages thanks to Deep Creek Lake and an endless array of mountainous adventures: canopy tours, segways, mountain biking, a mountain coaster, disc golf, 36 holes of regular golf, gem mining, pontoon boat tours, whitewater rafting and flatwater kayaking. The Fantasy Valley and Lodestone golf courses both boast soaring scenery. Lodestone, designed by Hale Irwin, features some of the largest greens on the East Coast.

Great course

Although we had wind speed reaching over 30 mph, we had a great time playing a challenging course.

Slipping

Absolutely one of my favorite layouts to play without a bad hole. Wildlife abounding. Views are fantastic. Unfortunately the courses conditions are declining with overgrown bunkers and loss of maintenance. Hopefully the building of High end new homes surrounding the course will impart a return to detail on the course. It’s a spectacular layout.

Best Course in Deep Creek

It was my second time on this course. One of the best around. Golfnow had a deal for $55/person. Can't beat that on a $100 course. The only downside is the club house had terrible food options. Only thing to eat is chips and Kind Bars. Would hate for a hotdog on the turn. But the Course...you gotta play

Definitely recommend

Excellent, challenging design with a friendly, hard-working staff. Bunkers could use some work but was in great shape otherwise. Six sets of tees to choose from so choose wisely. You can hit driver on most par fours and fives as the fairways are moderatly wide. Greens were running around a 9 or 10 and are very undulating.

Course is a great layout and challenge

The course was in pretty good condition. We played the purple tees and probably could of moved to the back tees just to allow better access to and landing areas. Greens were good, very true and faster than they looked. Looking forward to playing this in the future now that I know the layout a little better.

Fantasy Valley golf

Course needs a lot of tree trimming. On 17 the senior tee has branches overhanging that you clip in your backswing. on 16 any tee shot the is slightly left is going to hit a branch.

Fun, challenging course

Course was in good condition aside from a couple burned spots on the edge of greens, and a bit damp on some of the fairways. It played hard for me from the silver tees (I usually play blues), lots of ups and downs so we had to place balls more accurately than usual.. I shot about 10 over my normal score, so lots of room for improvement. Friendly staff and no pace issues.

Yellow Tees

Fun from the up tees. Mostly irons off the tee box. Greens are firm, fun and fast. Crazy undulations and have to hit it to the correct portion of the green. Would love to go back. Good value $95 on a Tuesday in August.

Yes and No

Great layout, subpar conditions. I can see why this course has been rated among the top in MD in the past. The bones are there, that’s for sure. However, outside of the greens, the staff seems to have given up on maintenance. The bunkers are completely run down with weeds and rocks and many fairways have wet spots drenched enough to swallow your foot. There aren’t a ton of golf options in the area which makes me think they’d be more up to speed on their conditions. However, this is more of a $50 course being sold as a $90-100 course at the moment. I hope they get back to their glory.
