Great Layout

Went up here as golfnow had a hot deal. It is not worth full sticker price, but if you can get it on a deal it's worth the trip. More of a links style course. Course was in great shape and the greens rolled well. My only complaint is that it was nearly a 5 hour round.

The course ranger is very rude

We had a tournament there today. The ranger yelled at us and forced us to skip one hole. It was not our foursome that slowed the pace. In fact,we had to wait at most of the holes.

Bucket List Check-Off

This is a good Donald Ross design course with plenty of doglegs and difficulties to avoid. Overall I thought the course was in good shape with a few fairways showing some wear. At least I did not have any 3 putts on these large and fast greens.

EXTREMELY overrated

I can sum up our experience by what my friend said as we stood on the par 5 15th tee: "Wow, this looks like a muni" . There are so many bad spots in the fairways. The tees aren't in good shape. The driving range was a sandy mess. The greens are still recovering from being punched a couple weeks ago, but I still don't see them being pristine any time soon. Even the signature Pete Dye "railroad ties" are overgrown and unkept.

I expected MUCH more from what many say is the best public course in Maryland. It seems to me like they are living off of past glory and euphoric recall. . There are AT LEAST 10 courses (5 in the Frederick area) in Maryland in WAY better shape than this one.

best in state

I don't play much golf in Maryland but there can't be many better golf facilities than this one. No two holes even remotely alike and with six sets of tees anyone can enjoy it.

Great course but pricey

This is a nice track that I highly recommend. It can play difficult at times but the layout is very nice. Conditions were great as well as pace of play. Staff extremely friendly too. Pro shop reminds you of a small golf store. Very large. .

Driving range a little far away but adequate. Very nice practice area otherwise.

It’s ranked as the number one course in Maryland, and because of that, it is priced accordingly. I’m not sure what makes it $100 a round course but would say at least play at once. Some of the best conditions you’ll find. A great value if you get it off peak times.

Worth every penny when you consider this is a top quality course and there are lesser courses charging the same or more to play.

Bulle Rock

The course is terrific. The greens are in real nice shape and quick. Keep your ball below the hole. The fairways are undulating and can give you some tricky lies. They are in great shape thigh. Just an overall first class experience.

Enjoyed the “Rock”

My son and I played this course for his birthday. Great course. It was in good condition. The staff was very professional. Layout is tough as you can get into tough spots but is enjoyable and fun to play. No complaints. We will be back.
