Excellent course but bring your A game or pass

It was very wet rained most of the round. We played the blue tees. Bulle Rock is classic Pete Dye unless your are really hitting it he puts you in very uncomfortable and punitive places that most will not recover.
Cart paths only combined with very wet and rainy conditions made it seem like a very hard course.

A Must Play

What a fabulous course, although I have not played in years since over 90 minutes away, it’s well worth the drive. The course is in phenomenal shape, fairways are like hitting off carpet. Layout is great and many
Picturesque holes. I was able to get a great deal $55 and well worth it. It’s a must play course and extremely challenging. The only negative thing I can say is that we had to start on hole 10, not a fan; however, I was told they do that on Mondays and Thursdays per the superintendent. Great experience and can’t wait to go back, everyone needs to experience this gem of a track

Toughest course in MD, worth it!

We played today at a rate of $50 with a hot deal on Golf Now versus normal rate of $84. Tremendous course. Lived up to its reputation. First time playing there and so worth it at that price. Certainly will be back even though I live 1+ hour away. Our foursome enjoy everything about the day. Paid online, so no contact at payment. Club drop was perfect, they pointed to our nearby cart labeled with our tee times and we loaded ourselves up. Used all the practice facility for about 45 minutes, chipping from 50-80 yards, putting green and driving range, all included in the price.. Course was awesome. Not a lot of elevation change(some), but has plenty of every other challenge in golf. Probably not an enjoyable course if you don't regularly break 90. It is hard!!! But fair and fun. We will be back.

Beautiful Course

Love playing Bulle Rock! Course is always in outstanding condition. A long drive to the range. Interesting layout with lots of mounds in the rough. Fairways smooth yet soft underfoot. Greens fast and the grain is definitely in play so include in your read. Very playable course for all levels if you use the proper tees for your skill level. Couple of really long holes. This is a true 5 star course.

The course was in great shape. It is a challenging course, but a fair course. The greens had a fair amount of undulation that can be a strong test for even the best golfers. Overall, a great experience.

In the end, it's surprisingly unmemorable

As a Maryland resident, I had placed this course at the top of my in-state bucket list. I was really disappointed, then, when I couldn't identify what all the fuss is about with this course. Yes, it's sprawling, and yes, it's in great shape for midsummer, and yes, several of the holes are attractive. But for me, its reputation as a destination course that deserves a $100+ greens fee is unearned. My friend and I kept saying variations of, "I like it, but it's not great." If they cut the cost in half, I guess I would return, but even then I wouldn't be enthusiastic. I did click "Yes" for whether I would recommend this course to a friend, but probably just to play once.

Golf Now Deal Time

First time playing the Bulle Rock golf course after hearing about it for years. We booked the tee time through the GolfNow App for $50 dollars which is less than half of the normal rate. The course was perfect except for a few greens they may have recently been aerated but still puttable. The rough was super challenging. The course was nothing special, no holes that wow'd you.

For $50 dollars I would play it all day but if I would have paid the full rate. >$100 dollars, It would have been a disappointment.

Our only complaint was groundskeeping crew didn’t stop while we were playing through. Kind of aggravating. This kind of takes away from the overall experience.

Worth every penny

Any time you get a chance to play this course, on a fabulous weather day, and for the cost of the deal I got, you take advantage of it!! 5 star course, all around. The rough was high today. Hard to find sometimes just off the fairway. It cost me a couple strokes today. Greens were a little thin in some spots, but were fast and near impossible to hold in some spots. Always worth the trip. Always 5 stars.
