Good condition

Considering all the rain in the past couple weeks, the course was in great condition. No standing water anywhere in the fairways but the greens were a bit slow.

Hidden Gem in Downtown Frederick

This golf course is always in great shape, the greens are still running smooth and it's already December. Challenging enough to all levels of players. Fun course to play, because everything is in front of you.

Great round w/ minimal air traffic

Played this course many years ago and my only lasting memory was the constant buzz of helicopter traffic overhead. Swore I’d never come back but decided to give another try.

Wonderful experience this time. Course was In great shape, greens were in excellent condition and rolled true, and staff was friendly and helpful. Course is next to municipal airport, but no plane (and minimal helicopter :-) traffic overhead.

Great value with Golfnow rate. I will return.

Excellent weather for golf. Course was in fine shape. Real gem in the Frederick area. Even more pleasing was the hot deal pricing.

Good value

Course manager needs to reconsider policy of not allowing a Golf Now T time to go off early If And only IF conditions permit, I.e. first tee is empty and there are no grOups scheduled at the last minute. If a last minute “walk on” turns up and there are no other scheduled t times to conflict I see no reason to prevent a “golf now” group to tee off earlier by sending off the “walk on” AFTER the golf now group.

Fun course but nothing special

I like the layout, thought it was fun. Conditions were pretty average. Not great but not terrible. The back tee boxes could use some work, some greens are better than others, and the rough is a bit patchy in spots.

Great Round of Golf

The course is in great shape, the greens were fast and the fairways are full and green not a bare spot anywhere. The rough is tough and you will need to wedge out sometimes.

Great Course for beginners but keep it movin

This is a great Course for beginners burn please be respectful to those that are more advanced and keep your pace of play up. If you are three strokes over before getting to the Green...move on. The Fairways are wide. Nice level Course with some hill play. Greens are great shape. The T-Boxes could use some attention but with all the beginners/weekend Golfers I get it. Still a challenging Course for beginners to intermediate players. Bunkers have decent sand and are not too easy but just right. Great Course to practice and get better. The Grounds crew does a great job considering how much traffic this course gets! I love this course and will hopefully break 90 on it.

1st Time - Easy Layout

Golf Now did NOT mention that the back nine was closed when I booked. I don’t blame the course for that. Not very crowded; maybe because others knew of the airation. Pace was fine. Greens were in very good shape, as were most fairways. The bunkers were basically packed down dirt. My fellow players pulled their’s out and played from the side. That was the only real negative. Not a very challenging layout, but certainly nothing wrong (with the nine holes I saw;: twice). Very friendly lady checked me in and got me out early.. Thank you! I’ll definitely go back.

Creed

My last 2 rounds of golf has been at this golf course. Both rounds bad experiences. This is in 18 hole golf course today they only used 9 holes because of work on the front 9.. There was entirely too many people on the golf course today for a 9 hole golf course.. After we turn the corner to go play the back 9 again there were 2 High school golf teams waiting to tee off. So we had to wait for around a half an hour to start about the back 9 over. Just my opinion not good off management

Ranger was super rude. I have never been treated unfairly at a course in my life. I would rather play any other course in MD. I will never go back.

The worst experience I have ever had at a golf course

First time here. The ranger harassed us constantly. We paid 40 dollars for a 12 pack since you cannot bring your own alcohol which is fine , but it didn’t seem like the ranger wanted to believe we abided by the rules. It was also cart path only which non of the staff told us and the ranger was super rude about it. He threatened to kick us off the course like he was protecting Augusta National. It’s a average course with a super rude staff, I will never be back. You can get a better experience at any course in Maryland.

Golf course was closed on 7/8/2109

We booked tee time at 12:16pm 7/8/19 thru GolfNow. We went there as scheduled. Only to find that both the gate and the club house were closed. Probably due to the thunderstorm warning?! No one answered the phone at the golf course.
I immediately called Golfnow to ask for refund for our prepaid booking. Jessica from GN could not contact the golf course either. There was no answering machine. Jessica told us she would request the refund for us.
But our day was wasted because of this confusion !
At least there should be an answering machine to announce that the course is closed due to severe weather conditions!

Municipal Course - Priced too high

Paid $60 to walk on a municipal course - lot of competition in this area and pricing should reflect that competition - will probably switch my golfing to Glade Valley - pricing much better.
