This is a great course for folks that enjoy 9 holes in a short amount of time. The course is in excellent condition. I play this course weekly and would not change a thing. The facility is very nice and the staff is tremendous. Good golf and good people, can't beat it! Playing this course or the 18 hole course is worth the trip.

An interesting course with a Jekyll and Hyde front and back nine. The front is open, with water on 8 holes. The back is tree lined with tight fairways. The biggest issues I have are pace of play. As a muni there are often numerous golfers who have little or no experience, and are not familiar with etiquette. It took the group in front of us 15 minutes to play the first hole! I'm also not a big fan of Bermuda grass, especially in the dormant season, which here is very long. Government employee staff treats you like your at the MVA.,

What a nice place for a round of Fall golf! This is a Muni worth taking the long way home to play. Instead of coming home from OCM up the coast, I took Rt-50 and swung West about an extra hour or so on the way back to NJ. Very glad I did!

Loved the tee boxes! Very soft, perfectly level, grass was thick and plush. I was impressed with the overall balance of the layout, one of the best parkland courses I've played. Bunkers, hazards and trees are all in play.

No slight of hand, it was all right in front of me. All I had to do was play it. Put up a good front nine then pushed too hard on the back. Would like to have a few of those back...

The course upgraded the tee boxes and fairways to Bermuda grass a couple of years ago and both areas are thin. Some fairways it was difficult to find grass to place your ball on. We didn't pay much for playing so it compensated for the course condition.

It is a challenging course however the fairways need some major work.

Been awhile since I was at Hog Neck. Always enjoyed playing there. But this time was the best. Course is in great shape. The greens were smooth and fast despite recent rains.<br/> The staff is about the friendliest you will find anywhere.<br/> I will get back before the winter closes in.

Hog Neck is situated in a wonderful part of Talbott County. The course is laid out perfectly providing elevation changes that will challenge. The greens were quite slick but in good condition. Also, the placement of many of the fairway bunkers are situated along the "average" driving distance. For the long hitters, you can get passed them, but for those 200-250 off the tee, you'll want to be more precise with your drives. The tall pines are a player on a few of the holes, especially on the back. It seemed to me, the course plays a bit longer than you think as I found myself scratching my head on "why" do I have 180+ to reach in regulation. A for sure "Go Play"! A++

There are many great and challenging holes. The unique thing about the course is the front nine plays like a links course and the back is in the woods. Have always liked playing here, but haven't played for a couple of years and I was disappointed in the condition. Fairways were scored and the greens were pock marked.

The course was in good shape with fast greens, that were well kept. Front nine open with the back nine requiring more strategic shots, due to more narrow conditions. Overall, a good day

Booked online and when we arrived at course was told they had a tournament and we couldn't play on main course. They did offer complimentary play on executive course to us with $20 for cart fees. That was fine and very accommodating but we would've preferred the main course. I had driven 68 miles to join my friend at this course so was a little disappointed we didn't play main course. But it was fine the way it turned out. I found the exec course in need of repair, cart paths were in bad shape and fairways were in need of cutting and some grass seed.

The course is in great shape. Need to keep your ball in the fairways as the ruff is very thick and dense and you can easily loose you ball only a few feet off the fairway.
