Great course

Course was in great shape (fairways, bunkers, greens..etc) but there were a lot of pitch marks on the greens and divots on the tee boxes.

Perfect except pace of play

Our $49 hot deal made this a great price for one of the very best courses in the state. I've played PD Dye and Bulle Rock in the last month and neither is in as prisitine condition as MD National. Disappointed in the pace of play but a full course. Still 5 hour round is too long. Played here several times this year and this is the only time around took more than 4 hours.

Worth the trip

The course is in outstanding condition. Played as a single this afternoon at a comfortable pace and finished in 3 hours. You won’t find anywhere in the area in nearly the condition that Maryland National is. Tees, fairways, and greens are all in great shape after some tough weather in July and August. The layout is fun with some big elevation changes, even if the par 3s are a little repetitive. This course consistently provides the best overall value at this price point with the overall amenities, conditions, layout, and pace of play.

Course Grows On You

You do have to play it a few times so you know when and when not to use driver. Conditions are on par with Links at Gettysburg. Has some great risk/reward holes. Fairways in great shape. Bring your range finder for help on tee shots. Highly recommend. If you live in Frederick and are a golfer you are loving life with all the golf courses that are a 30 minute drive or less.

Great layout but 5-hour round today

Course was in great shape as always, and the layout is enjoyable. Beautiful surroundings with lots of dramatic elevation changes. Fairway divots are getting out of hand due to no sand bottles on carts. Pace of play was totally unacceptable. We made the turn in 2.5 hours and finished at 5 hours. No ranger anywhere, and nobody said anything at the turn. I’ll definitely be back but may skip the weekend next time.

Beautiful course, tough, challenging, greens can be a bit humbling

I was a single and matched up with a couple and another single. The course is an amazing layout and in excellent condition. There are a lot of fairway hills, sloping mounds, fast greens and no straight putts. I am glad I played the white tees, so I could have a chance to score. I left a lot of strokes on those greens. The starter told me that the greens all break to the river, that is great if you see a river or know where it is...LOL.
I look forward to coming back again and playing this course and scoring. I think the first time playing, it can be a little frustrating. The back seemed easier or at least I scored better on the back 9, put it that way.
All in all a great place to play golf, if you got game.

Very tough nice beautiful course I would rate it as tough

Tough but fair, hit them accurately or pay the price. In excellent shape. I had a little problem with holding the greens. But putted smoothly.

Very nice course

This is a very nice course, good variety in every hole. Greens were fast and in nice shape. This course is more expensive than I normally pay, but once or twice a year is worth it.

MD National is always a challenging course. There are few flat lies but I always enjoy playing the course. It's in beautiful shape.
