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.

Great Low cost course

If you looking for a course with open fairways, minimal elevation changes, and very little water, this is the course for you. This course itches the golf scratch when you don’t want to spend a ton of money on a round.

So much clover. If you miss the fairway by more then a yard kiss your ball goodbye.

Off the grid

Course in excellent condition especially the greens. Played in a twosome in 4 hours flat! Only issue was trying to find the course. Tried several GPS Apps on iPhone none of which could direct me to the course likely due to construction detour. Suggest first time visitors call ahead for directions,

Arizona Visitor

Very friendly staff made our day most enjoyable. Course in excellent shape but being from Arizona, we did have a few lost balls in the tall rough that we do not have back home.

Enjoyable round

Good weather, course was in good shape (our foursome, however, did not think conditions required cartpath only on EVERY hole),, we all enjoyed the round. Minor complaint: service at the grill post-round was a little “uneven,” to be charitable.

First time at Clustered Spires

My husband and I played this course on Friday after noon.
We didn't get off on schedule but that was to be expected.
The course was in great condition. We enjoyed it very much and will likely play again.
The only downside was the cost of food and beverage.
The breakfast sandwich was excellent and good value for the money. However, the cost for all the other food was too pricey, beers at $4.5 per is outrageous.

Beautiful Course

This was our first time playing here and if we lived closer we would come back often
Staff couldn’t have been nicer
Met some nice people we were paired up with
Course was challenging but Not difficult
We are seniors and usually only play nine
But today we played 18
If we are ever back in Frederick we will play there again

fun but slow

The course is really a fun course to play. It is surrounded by some really REALLY hard courses so this one can make you feel better about your game. The greens were in really good shape, the tee boxes were very nice. The rough was rough. The fairways were in good shape. The only complaint I have is the pace. We had a tee time of 8:08 and they were backed up already. They had some junior tournament going on that day and so they may have tried to shove as many as possible onto the course as possible. The result is that we played a 4 hours and 40 minute round. Still, the round was enjoyable and I had a score that was several strokes below my average. I would recommend this course to anyone and I will be back again.
