Awesome

Second time playing the course and it is still a real treat. Having played virtually every course in Maryland the par foir number five is my highest ranked short par four. And the rest of the course is not far behind! Do yourself a favor and play this course.

Not so great

This course used to be phenomenal but the conditions were pretty bad. Tee boxes were in bad shape. The pace of play was pretty bad too. Teed off at 1130 and finished at 4. On a crowded holiday weekend, maybe. On a random summer day during the week, no way. At times there were 4 groups on the same hole. Called for a marshall and no one came out.

In Great Shape for August...and For The Heat!

Whiskey Creek is my favorite course in MD. it's a fantastic layout...a variety of holes with a nice balance of risk/reward holes. Typically, Whiskey Creek is in excellent condition, and today was no exception! The tee boxes, fairways, and greens were excellent, and there were only a couple of very small patches of brown on a couple of fairways. Compared to other courses throughout MD, this course was in exceptional condition. The greens, as usual, were fast, so some of those downhill putts were testers. We ran about 15-18 minutes behind the pace (published time), but we were waiting on every hole...I think the hold up was two groups in front of us. But, overall, it wasn't too slow...I think we ended up playing in 4 hours 45 minutes (vs. 4.5 hours). The staff is always nice and welcoming, and the amenities are very nice--you can get a very good meal there after the round and sit in the A/C or outside on the wrap-around deck. Lovely setting, beautiful golf course, and some great vistas from some of the holes I love this course, and they were running an aeration special for $79 on the weekends...I couldn't pass it up (it's typically $115 on the weekends). I would play it more, but $115 for a non-Resort course is a little high. I highly recommend this course.

A must play

Played my first round today and it was very enjoyable. Most golf courses in August are not in the best shape after a busy spring and summer but this place was in terrific shape. Staff was friendly. I will definitely be back!

Great course but ranger needs to learn etiquette

Let’s start with the positive… The course is a really neat layout and is very fair yet can be difficult at times. Conditions were great in pace of play was superb. It’s very unique and worth the drive.

Driving range is extremely average which is surprising for a course of this quality. You respect a much better practice area as a whole.

Saw the Ranger on almost every other hole through the first 10. For those who are only caring about fast pace of play, maybe that’s a good thing to you. But for those of us who do not enjoy having to wait because the Ranger apparently has no etiquette whatsoever and drives up your home at anytime he wants, it is not ideal. There is no question about pace of play so no reason to see the same ranger that many times.

Also, not quite sure why the sprinklers were coming on periodically while people are playing. They seem to have sensors or what not but there were a couple times people got wet. Not acceptable.

Would highly recommend this course.

MDW Great Course, Wide Open

Played on Memorial Day - it was a little strange there was no one out there. We played as a three-some and there was no one in front or behind of us. Check-in and starter were easy, starter provides you with all the information you need - 90 degrees, drinking water on all par-3’s, fix ball marks, etc. Carts are brand new with GPS and auto-locking breaks. Course was in good condition. Greens were a little bumpy, but we did play on the third day of a three day weekend. Overall I highly recommend this course for a moderate to experienced golfer.

Excellent Course!

1st time playing Whiskey Creek. Knew course had an excellent reputation from what friends have told me.
Staff is very thorough here. Had both the GM and Marshall come over to our group a couple of times apologizing for the slow pace of play.

Course was in great shape. Slight aeration on some of the greens. Surprised that the pro shop had no yardage books for sale.

Will definitely come back to play Whiskey Creek again this Summer!

Nice layout

I have played Whiskey Creek many times. Most of the time it is in outstanding shape. Today the course didn't live up to its normal high quality. The greens were very bumpy and slow. The sand traps were not raked and were wet. The course layout was its usual great self. Did not like starting from the back nine first. Courses are made to play certain way.
