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.

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.

Resort course

Rain fell the night before I played the course, plus a little rain for the first 2 holes. The course did not drain well. The middle of the fairways stayed very wet and unplayable.. The bunkers were playable but need a lot of work. The road to the course is gravel and not in the best shape, and the clubhouse is a bit on the small size. For the good, the green complexes were some of the best I have seen. The course layout is just beautiful. This is a great $79.00 course not the $119.00 normal price.

Great course!

The course is in great shape!
This is easily one of the most scenic courses in the area.
Tough green complexes with lots of undulation. If you aren’t on the right level tho, look out!
Greens rolled quick and true and would hold an approach shot.
Would definitely recommend!!
