I play both these course multiple times every year although the River less often. The River is awesome with interesting holes from 1 to 18. Today from tee box to green the course was excellent. Greens were rolling very well(took me a few holes to stop rolling them 6 feet past.) The practice facility is the best of any course I've played in Maryland. Pro shop is loaded with clothes, hats, shoes, hats, etc.

Had a 11:09 tee time. took 5 hours to play, not something you expect in prime time on a Sunday. Worst part was we never saw a Marshall the entire round. Afterwards I mentioned this to the staff and they said he called in sick. Found out their was a group of 20 or in front of us and one group had 3 holes open in front of them. We waited on every tee box on the back. Greens recently aerated but rolled nice. Fairways in great shape. I played River last year and said it was not worth the $125 and I will say the same about Lakes, not worth $75. Should have learned. Kicker was 1 hour to get back home over Bay Bridge. Not coming back. Would recommend at twilight rate or similar.

When you pay over $100 for a round you have certain exceptions, like a grass driving range, GPS , cooler on the cart. Staff that knows the course, rangers that actually do something. We had to wait for 2 groups on 16 tee. Asked the ranger what pace of play was and he said well all the groups are playing a good pace. Really... 10 minute tee times we should not be waiting on almost every tee. 4 hours 50 minutes . $4 for a gatorade.. kinda steep. The putting green was the nicest green of all. Best thing was ranger going around with ice cold towels. I would never pay that fee again. Would do twilight rate.

The River Course at Queenstown Harbor is still one of the best public-access courses in Maryland. The vitas along the Chester River are stunning. The greens were fast and true. Because several of the holes have hazards that cross the fairways, it is important to have accurate yardage info. Bring your "A" game when you play the River Course.

Course is in good condition with greens running true and med-fast. Watch out on GolfNow, booking can be confusing, thought I booked the River Course and got the Lakes Course. If you want the GolfNow credit best to book, then call proshop & confirm.
