Like this course
The course is quite a challenge, but the cart path only rule for the day made it incredibly long. It had rained 2 days prior, and still we had to stay on path. Not a friendly course for that. Not sure did go back because of that. The marshal said they keep it that way if it is even a little damp. I guess they don’t care about slow play.
Bulle Rock is a beautiful layout. I've played this course numerous times throughout the years. Normally the course is in championship condition. Today condition was a little disappointing. Some tee boxes had no grass just dirt and sand. Some fairways had dead grass or diseases. The greens were beat up. Not sure what's going on with the course Hopefully they'll get it back to the pristine conditions they're know for.
Course conditions falling
Bulle Rock is normally one of the best courses in Maryland. I don't know what happen. The tee boxes were in bad shape. The greens were very bumpy and had bad spots on them. Again, not the normal for Bulle Rock. Our group was really disappointed in the conditions. Still had the Professional layout that is outstanding. Hopefully these conditions aren't the new normal. I'm betting on them getting it back to what we are used to. I'll wait until next year to to test this.
My Favorite course in the Mid-Atlantic area.
My Favorite course with the exception of the high rough and very windy conditions conditions today, made it very difficult. I still enjoyed the greens and the challenges the course presented.
The greens Roll True and are some of the best I have seen.
The hardest course you’ll ever love
Not in it usual pristine condition, but always a good time. We had an issue on the 3 rd hole that made the rest of the day uncomfortable. Bunkers are well maintained but need more sand, only about 1/2 inch sand and rock hard underneath. At least in the two bunkers I was in.
Great course Fair conditions
It was our first time playing here and unfortunately it was so wet it really affected our play. But if it were a little dryer this course would have gotten a 5 star rating.
Midweek Round at "Maryland's Best"
Bulle Rock has excellent amenities. A short game range and full range that are included in the greens fee. We teed off right at our tee time and finished as a foursome in 4 hours. The design is excellent. There are a few holes that have been clearly updated to improve rate of play (the par 5 on the back comes to mind) which takes away from the original design.
The conditions were decent for what I had expected. Deemed "Maryland's Best" for daily fee play, I expected better conditions. The tees had some issues with uniformity and grass heights were all over the place. The greens had been badly bruised from aeration several weeks ago. Additionally, it looked like they tried to triplex the greens when it was too wet leading to scalped areas in spots.
When you go out of the way to play a Top 100 Public Course in the country, expectations are high. Unfortunately expectations were nowhere near reality.
The greens, although recently aerated, are patchy and in poor shape. Fairways matched. Worse shape than most municipals I play.
They don’t allow push carts because “this is a 5-star course” per one of the staff. Anyone who’s used a hand cart knows it provides a better pace of play and has no effect on damaging the course.
So you either have to carry your bag or take a cart. It was cart path only so on top of terrible conditions, the round took 4h45m because of cart path only. Mostly the groups ahead.
Will likely not return.
