Need a Marshall

The course id great and staff are too. The problem is there were two foursomes that backed up entire course and would not let anyone play through. They were playing from the tips without the skills to play from there. They had four groups behind them waiting at the tee box by the time they were off the tee. Oblivious to the other golfers and made for a frustrating day!

Course is in peak form

The course is in great shape right now. Got a bit slowed up behind a 60-person outing, but still a bit under 4 hour round, and seemed like just a nice walk in the park.

Great shape

Course is in great condition. Despite getting 2 inches of rain greens were running 10+. Love the layout, only gripe is a couple of holes could use taller pins - I want to be able to see the flag from the fairway.

Surprisingly BAD

Maryland National is one of my Favorite Courses around the World. I always know what I’m going to get for the Long drive and Premium Green Fee. Great Course Lay-out In PRISTINE CONDITION, Fast Greens and Very Challenging. So I was Very Surprised too see the Condition of the course, Ive Never seen it so Bad. The Greens were Horrible. It Must Be the Up & Down Weather the area has been getting. I’m willing to Give them a pass because its the first time Ive been disappointed with a round at Maryland National. I Feel like I should get another Round on the House because that’s not the course Iknow and Love .

Tough track

This course is very tough , 6475 yards from the gold tees but easily plays 7000 given the elevation changes. Tee to green conditions were better than average for early in the season. Greens are deceivingly fast.

Great course but uncomfortable experience

I am a frequent player in Maryland National. Probably it is one of the most picturesque public golf courses in DMV area. It’s late April, the course condition gets much better and the green is not as sandy as 10 days ago. I was paired with threesomes who don’t speak much English. They are not beginners but their pace was extremely slow. They took mulligans on every tee box. They bet, drank, shouted, and had a lot of fun by themselves, but they had no consideration for others. I found it very stressful to have open holes ahead and people waiting behind. I was stuck.

Picturesque and Challenging course

Maryland National is a very difficult but beautiful course near Middletown Maryland. The course is laid out over rolling hills with lots of up and down. It is surrounded by beautiful views of the Appalachian mountains.

Sandy green

It was a nice day. The wind was much calmer than the weather man expected. So the course was pretty busy even it was in the middle of week. Maryland National used to have a perfect condition when I played. However, the putting greens are all very sandy recently.

Good course but poor services!!

The golf course is great, but every time we go, the staff at the pro shop is very unfriendly and rude.

Awesome Day on the Course

All good things about this course from the excellent course conditions to a well laid out and very playable yet somewhat challenging design. To the Pro in the shop checking us in as one in our group was running a little late but he was extremely accommodating and understanding, to the grounds crews that were super friendly as well as to the tavern folks that were out of the world nice and funny. Everyone made us feel like we were preferred members when actually it was my second time playing there and the first was 7 years ago. a must stop and an awesome time.
