Black Rock Golf Course
Black Rock Golf Course may be one of western Maryland's newest courses but it's located near some of the country's most historic sites. Antietam Battlefield and Harper's Ferry are just a few minutes away from this scenic course. The opening holes of the layout are tucked into the Shenandoah Valley while the back nine climbs uphill, offering views that stretch across the Appalachian Mountains. The golf course has plenty of holes that will please long hitters, but mature trees and thick rough frame most of the holes, demanding accuracy. Traps protect the front of most of the greens and you'll come across dramatic undulations on some. The par-4 13th is arguably Black Rock's toughest hole. This sharp dogleg right has a massive tree to the right as well as a pond right in front of the green.

Golf Advisor: Top Courses in Maryland
Nice greens and fairways! Tee boxes could be better but not to bad. Pace was great! Exactly four hr round. No groups in front of us or behind us. Every hole was unique and challenging so it was fun. Nice public course. This was my 2nd time playing here. Price was good too.
The course was in great shape and the green were awesome! Bunkers suck so avoid at any cost as no sand in them. Overall excellent
Nice course, nice layout
Nice course, nice layout
Only negative for the greens. They were wet and I do not believe that they modem this morning. They were extremely slow. This may be due to the time of year as I’m not an expert. Overall, I would happily play this course again as I enjoyed the layout and the fairways and Rose were in very good condition
Good day for golf
The staff were friendly. We had good weather. It was an enjoyable round. The course was in good shape.
Stoopid slow due to poor mgmnt
Played labor day 1pm. These idiots jammed 3 groups together ahead of us that teed off less than 10mins apart;!? Took 4 hours to play 12 holes before I called it a day. Horrible course management and cramming as many as possible onto a course like this creates an experience that makes me never want to return. unacceptable
Hidden jewel, nice course
Well maintained, fun to play.
Pace was fast.
We will be back again.
One of my favorites in the area
One of my favorites close to home. Great Course! Will be back again and bring more golfers.
This is a nice course, in good condition. Very nice layout, doglegs, ups and downs, plenty of bunkers and some water. Greens are in good condition, a bit small and slow. Several holes you probably shouldn't hit driver. I will play here again.
Fairways greens and tees in good shape. Challenging holes that make you think a shot ahead. Good shots are rewarded but some holes are narrow and can be punishing if you miss your mark. Plenty of shade on the course with all the trees, just wish there was a ranger to help keep the pace of play up. We had to go around a group that was playing brutally slow, you know the type , walk 50 yards to your ball without a club than walk back. Those types. All in all a very fun course. I would have to say one of my favorites. It didn't hurt I shot even par on the first go around here either. Lol
Great all around course!
Excellent course with unique holes. Bunkers have no sand but none seem too this year. Heavy rains wash them out. Had a great time and pace of play was Excellent!
Black Rock -Hagerstown
Very good course. Price was right too. Course was in excellent condition. Greens rolled true and fairways and rough were perfect.. would be nice to see a beverage Cart on the course. It was 92 degrees out. I would recommend this course highly
Good day at the Rock
It was a great day for golf at Black Rock. The pace of play was good. The weather was sunny with a bit of a breeze. It was a good value for the money. Will come back to play.
The course was in great shape. The only bad thing was the pace of play. They had tons of rangers out but they were just watching everyone play, not making anyone go faster or having people play through.
Starting To Show Wear and Tear
I really like the layout of this course with it's variety of hole shapes. It's about an hour and 10 minutes from me, but for the most part worth the drive. The good news is that the price is really good...$53/player on a Saturday, and Military was $25! Thanks for recognizing our Military & Veterans. The fairways were in good shape--not great--but good, except for #18. The majority of that fairway was just hard pan dirt. Staff told us that they haven't had rain in a month, and it definitely shows with the rough browning out, the tee boxes lumpy and spots with no grass, and the bunkers were mostly just crusty hard dirt. The greens were in excellent condition though, but the pins were in horrid spots...they were having their Club Championship, so moved a lot of flag sticks close to the edges. There was no marshal, and the round was very slow...we waited on every hole, every shot; and we had a twosome behind us that didn't know course etiquette and kept driving up behind us when we were teeing off! There was no one pushing them--they were just rude (or maybe inexperienced)...they should have just lagged back a little until we were off the tee boxes. I'm going to wait until the Fall to drive back up--maybe it will be in better condition by then.
