Got in a quick 9 on a Sunday afternoon for only $18 walking. Course is fairly easy, the front 9 is probably a bit more difficult than the back. Behind Pine Ridge, this is my second favorite classic 5 course. Did run into a small issue with a threesome not paying attention to golfers behind them, so I had to skip and return to that hole. Ranger was watching but also did not say anything. Staff is friendly and I'll be back.

I played a 5:58 A.M. tee time. Checked in early and they let me start before my tee time. The manager Dee could not have been more friendly or helpful. The starter was also very friendly. I know that early tee times the course can be wet, I had to skip the first tee as they had the sprinklers going. The front nine were a mess, it was like they way over watered the course. You would have thought it had rained for a week straight. I got to the fifth tee and they also had the sprinklers going. Despite the course conditions, I will be back to play the course again.

Pretty laid back course. Nothing fancy but enjoyable and inexpensive. #1 is not easy to find sinage is lacking. Course was in ok shape and was fairly easy. Greens were in surprisingly good shape save for a couple spots. Overall a good place for a cheap quick easy round.

First off,I love that I could golf in February in MD! It was an amazing weekend with 60 plus degrees. Of course, the golf course would be pack, which was expected.

The staff in the pro shop was very friendly, and was a great first impression. The starter on the other hand, was very unfriendly and was a little ticked off with me when I asked how long the delay was. We book a tee time and checked in a few minutes before our tee time. The course was short on golf carts. We were there before our tee time and it seemed like they were trying to get walk ons out on the course. You turn walk ons away when you are short on cart, and running two tee times behind.

The course was so-so. the back 9 was much better off than the front (We did not get to play all of the back 9 because of the 30 minute delay with our tee time.). It is feb, so what course is in great shape. There was a few things that could be improved. There are some greens that need to be rolled. (Greens overall were pretty good shape and difficult.) So of the grass needs to be repaired, but overall, an average condition course.

The staff did give us free balls to hit at the golf range.

This is a great value course in Baltimore. The tees, fairways, and greens are in good condition especially for this time of year. I look forward to playing during the summer here. It's wide open on most holes so there is little risk of losing balls. I really enjoyed playing here.

Course layout was nice. Conditions are what you expect for winter golf. Pace of play was awful. No marshal around to speed up some of the golfers. Took us over 4 hrs to play 15 holes due to the people in front of us who had a group of 8. They were purposesly playing slower so they could stay together. Also the course ran out of golf carts which made us tee off a bit late. I will give the course another shot. No golfer courtosey for the folks in front of us.

How exactly were a group of 8 allowed to play together? Most places only up to a foursome.

Pretty decent Metro Course, good value. Some challenging holes. Would score higher on customer service, except the Marhsall will chase you off the course and begin pulling the flag 30-45min before sunset or carts to be back. Which is the worst of all the Classic 5 course.

Nice fairways, bunkers need work, small greens on most holes. Played 18, and pace was good this day, can be slow at times. Front 9 easier than back due to woods and over hitting will cause the ball to roll into trouble. New clubhouse is at the turn now instead of at the end!
