Great track, will return

Great and very challenging course. Played at three on a Saturday as that is when it is the cheapest, and it was worth every penny. I'm sure the conditions weren't the best it's ever been as the fairways are a little beat up, but still an excellent course. I will definitely return.

A lot of blind tee shots, and tight fairways so definitely bring your A game.

Didn't use them that day but the practice facilities looked top notch.

Best service ever

First time i've played here in about 10 years. Exceeded my expectations from what i had remembered. Course conditions were excellent. Very interesting layout. The maintenance of the grounds throughout the facility were excellent. The friendliness of the staff was the best i've seen around and I play courses all over Maryland. In fact, when we were called off the course for lightning, a computer glitch delayed the manager in issuing us a rain check so he bought us all a drink. We will certainly be returning.

What a golf course, a true test of all your skills right down to your yardage to the pins.

You must play this course a couple of times to get to know where you can and cannot hit to. I’m from out of the area and PBD is already on my list to play when I go back in May.

Fun Day

Everything was great except for a slow foursome that would not allow us to play through. We had to skip around them and miss playing a hole. A great day other than that.

Awesome value

I don't know where else it is possible to play a round of golf at a beautiful private course for $25. The scenery is great. The clubhouse is nice. The staff is friendly. Every hole is interesting. After playing here ten times, it is downright boring to return to the local public courses.
