Always superb!

Maryland National is an outstanding layout that is very well maintained.. And even with the recent rains (it was cart path only), there were very few washout areas or GUR areas. The folks here are SO nice and helpful. I always enjoy my time at Md Nat'l. If you find a deal time here, don't pass it up!

Beautiful Course & Scenery, But....

Maryland National is a wonderful course with beautiful scenery and great amenities. It's been a while since I've played it, and the Eagles Nest snack bar is a nice addition on the turn (vs. having to go inside to the restaurant). You need to take your patience on this course because every hole is different and has different challenges, especially the uneven lies, strategically placed bunkers, and mounding that can help or hurt you. The only reason I did not give the course a 5 Star rating is because the pace of play was awful--and I never saw a marshal. It was almost 5 hours and the foursome in front of us had a hole open in front of them for almost the entire back 9...and why they were playing from the tips is beyond me! They were every pace but the fairway! It makes the round miserable for paying customers behind them. For a high-end course, Maryland National needs to marshal and ensure a positive experience for all their customers. Beyond that, the course was wet from all the overnight rain (and cart path only), but it was in great shape, playable, and lush and green.

Best course in DMV

I have played courses everywhere around PA, DE, VI, NC, MD and no course comes close to this one. In my opinion the layout is perfect. The condition of the course is excellent. Beautiful scenery, high end clubhouse/ amenities. The 19th hole (shroyers Tavern) was excellent. As a hole the clubhouse staff was very nice Chris in the pro shop was a huge help. I’ve played Worthington Manor. Whiskey Creek, and Musket ridge their staff doesn’t come close to Maryland National staff. Also those courses weren’t close to the condition Maryland National is. I will say this is the best course I’ve been to anywhere. It is worth the drive.

Great value

Got the hot rate for $45 or so. Course was in great shape and the pace of play on the front 9 was excellent. Got a little backed up at the turn but not too bad. Nice practice facility. The bunkers were a little soggy from the previous day’s heavy rain. Challenging and lots of uneven lies but a very fun course.

Course costs

Maryland National Is a high end club with granite bathroom counters and very well trained personnel and was able to play for $27. Richland Golf Club which is also in Middletown MD is not so high end golf club and the Hot Deals there are over $37. They are very near my home and convenient to go there, can you bring those costs down?
