Situated along the shores of the Potomac River in southern Maryland, Swan Point Country Club has been ranked as one of the top 10 golf courses in the state. Golfers who enjoy playing in the Carolinas will feel right at home on this course. Water or marshland comes into play on 12 holes and there is an abundance of pine trees. The course is also home to a variety of wildlife including osprey, bald eagles, and deer. In addition to the water, strategically placed bunkers add another challenging element to the golf course. The par-5 fourth hole is considered the signature, mostly due to the challenging island green. Proper club selection is key in order to maneuver past the lake that runs along the entire left side of the fairway. The hole is especially hard on windy days.

Not Winter

Normally this course is a great track but right now the greens are in bad shape, tee boxes full of goose poop, and traps just full of dirt. Fairways are still soft and have no roll making the course play longer than it is. There are no ball washers even though most courses around here have them out, water with the solution will not freeze and if you think they will put three on each side each day.

This course is by far one of the best and most beautiful courses I’ve ever played. It has the layout of a professional course while still being a course the average joe can do well on. Unfortunately it had rained the night before so the fairways were not even playable in some places. The greens were immaculate. 10/10 would recommend when the weather conditions are good

Best value in the area

Played swan point for $25 dollars on a hot deal. Greens are the best I have ever seen them and I have played the course 10+ times. The views alone from the golf course makes it worth the money. By far the best golf course in southern maryland. The cups even featured a mechanism that let the ball fall in the hole and touch-less retrieval. The range is grass and make it a pleasure to warm-up. Overall a great experience

Nice Course lame pricing via TeeOff.

Swann Point is a beautiful and challenging course and the staff are very welcoming. . I enjoy playing it.

I was disappointed, however, when I learned that TeeOff postEd a price of $35 and after a 20% discount brought the price down to $27 for a walking rate. But the reality is, $27 is Swann Points standard walking rate. I felt that I had been scammed. It made me very disappointed in TEEOFf, which I used to use quite often. Nothing like this ever happened to me prior to the merger with GolfNow. Not t sure what you guys are thinking about but I prefer dealing with business relationships that are trustworthy. You lost some points with me after this experience.

Excellent Golf Course!

This was my first time playing Swan Point in 3 yrs and I was very pleased with the course conditions and value. The DC area has been experiencing a lot of rain so the fairways were a little wet and the greens just a bit "bumpy" but not bad for Janaury. I will definitely be back when the weather warms up in the spring!

Myrtle Beach In Maryland

Always A Great Course: Worth the drive, its the Closest You Can Get To Myrtle Beach in Maryland. Course is away from Home and traffic. Its Beautiful, Peaceful, and Serene . The Green Fees are always a Good deal, Good Practice facility and the Resteraunt is not Bad . The Locker Room is Great For freshening Up before a Long Drive home.

Ignorant Golfers

I want to start this off by saying this course is a lot of fun to play and in great shape. But, the last few times I have played here the pace of play has been atrocious. This year I have yet to play all eighteen holes. Today I skipped three holes to get around foursomes that were taking 27 minutes ( I timed one of them) to finish hitting their second shots. There was a Marshall driving around but he failed to speed the groups up. The slow groups at this course will also not let you pass. I do not recommend this course unless you want to play a six hour round of golf.

Low country golf an hour away

Course reminds you of playing in South Carolina low country. Greens and fairways are in immaculate condition. Well worth the hour or so drive to southern Maryland. Wind can’t be rough on a few holes.

Best course in Southern MD for the money

This place is first rate when the weather is good. I played with my son after work and it was awesome. The greens are in great shape and the fairways are excellent. The only weakness was the traps were a little packed from the previous rain. I wish I could play here everyday. Staff was friendly and helpful too. Ill be back!!!!!
