Fantastic layout and great shape. Greens were slow, but it was a bit damp and a lot of rain recently. We booked for next weekend already.

Considering this was the first Sunny Day after a week of rain the course was in excellent shape. The fairways were cut and they were trying to get the trimming done. A few traps had some water damage but that was expected. The staff from the pro shop to the workers were polite and friendly.

Booked via Golf Now, got the Hot Deal. Other than course maintenance (blowing the fairways, building a new tee box) we had a perfect day. First 3 greens were a bit hairy but played to a pace we are use to at Whiskey after that. No play at all, we were a foursome (hacked it up on a few holes) and let one twosome play through on the back. The staff was EXCELLENT! Play the proper tee boxes and the course is more enjoyable.

Course and amenities are top notch; however, greens were recently aerated, and were virtually sand and dirt, very little grass growing yet. A nice variety of holes, no 2 holes are the same. We got a decent rate on Golfnow ($69). Not sure I would have been happy had I paid the $109 rate.

Golfers, Be ware of Whiskey Creek, called and booked a T Time and specifically asked when they last aerated and how often they put people off. The lady told me they last aerated the greens in Feb and they put foursomes off at 9 minute intervals. I asked how long the round would take and she said 4 - 41/2. I took a chance on Sat, 4/14/18, at 2:15 with my group, The greens were terrible with very little grass and very bumpy with big sand filled holes that couldn't have been 2 months old.

The pace of play was even worse. By the 3rd hole, the course was backed up. Two 4somes ahead could hardly walk and had no business out there. Ranger eventually came out on the 5th or 6th hole but did very little. The 4some in front held us up on just about every hole, The round took over 5 hrs, past 7 pm! Needless to say we won't be back. Save you money, the course isn't ready yet and don't play on the WE.

I got a great rate to play this course with a friend so we decided to finally try it. The course conditions were great! The sand bunkers had ocean beach type sand were always raked. I’ve played 86 courses in my life and can count on 1 hand bunkers that were as good as Whiskey Creek. The course is tough if your approach shot is not good though. Greens were fast and sloped so you need to be on the correct side when putting. Last hole my second shot went through the gap between the tree and stone structure but still managed a par with a shot on after and 2 putt.

The best accessible golf course in the Greater Washington market. 18 gorgeous holes, each one strikingly different, in a terrific setting with multiple elevations. We played on 11/1 and still found the course in amazing shape. Fast greens, manicured fairways, beautiful vista's. Always the highlight of my golf season when I get to play Whiskey Creek!

Amazing course, I am so glad I got the chance to play it - but WOW that was one of the slowest rounds of my life. We teed off at 2:06pm on a Friday and finished in almost complete darkness around 7:15pm. I loved the course, the layout, the conditions, the friendly bar/restaurant staff, and the food we had before the round for lunch was great!

The group ahead of us was an embarrassment to golf. Did not rake their bunkers, hit upwards of 15 shots each down the fairway, topping and slicing and missing the ball. The greens were heavily pegged with unfixed pitch marks. The staff came out and gave us the opportunity to leave the back 9 around hole 14 to go play the front 9 again, but since this was my first time playing here I wanted to finish the course out. Next time if it's slow I'll play the front twice. I hope I get another chance to play here.

We were expecting much more since we had heard such great things. Honestly, there is no excuse for a 5 hour round. We saw the marshal only once, and we were already on the 17th tee box. That pretty much ruined the day. The single playing with us quit on hole 13 since that was his allotted time for golf and had to get back to the family. The course was very nice, but not worth the price or the terrible pace-of-play.

Most importantly the staff was amazing. The starter Ray was probably the best starter I've ever met. So friendly. Nice. Informative of the course. And very accommodating.

As far as the course. Very challenging. Greens roll fast and true. Fairways were in great shape. Rough was tough but playable. Each hole had its own personality and difficulty. Def one of my favorite courses to play in Maryland.
