comfortable course

This was a nice comfortable course to play. It was mostly open. There were enough trees to make it interesting if you hit offline but not a total tree lined venue. Course was in good shape considering all the local rain. I recommend this as a fun comfortable course to play. We played as a two some cart path only in less than three hours and we weren't pushing it.

Nice setup

Final day of trip and played here before departing the next day. The course overall has some challenging holes, and it was in good shape. The pace was good and you had to pay attention to where your ball ends up, as the holes are close enough that other shots may be in your fairway. For the Mrs, she did have a first... an island tee box for her one particular hole.

Open and challenging

Excellent staff. Except for a few holes (blind tee shots), the course is right in front of you. All greens were true (deceptively fast). Highly recommend this course. Could hear the race way a little distance away but not to the point of being annoying. Minor shortcomings are the range, gas carts (could use electric), and some of the bunkers. Range is irons only. Some of the bunkers have a thin layer of dirt which will not allow you to use the bounce on your sand wedge correctly. Starter acknowledged lack of sand in the bunkers. Rough is not bad.

Great test of golf

I'm not sure what the TexanPa lady is talking about, but this course is a true test of golf. The drag racing noise can be faintly heard in the distance, but it is MILES away, and has nothing to do with course conditions at this challenging course. The design and condition are much better than most "traditional" courses, with some gorgeous holes, elevation changes, shot-shaping requirements, serious challenges, and outstanding greens. I play many courses in Md, Va, and Pa, and other than Penn National, this course has perhaps the best greens of any regional (public) golf course. The greens are excellent, but the rest of the course is also very well maintained. The Superintendant and grounds staff obviously know what they are doing. The other staff members are very friendly, professional, and accommodating. One fairway and one bunker were in need of some attention, but otherwise this course is in great shape, and is a very fair but challenging test of golf. The driving range is irons only, and maxes out at about 210 yards, which is a small detraction, but otherwise, I definitely recommend the Chesapeake Rising Sun course.

Favorite Course

Chesapeake Bay Golf Club at Rising Sun is in as good of condition as a course can get, its extremely well maintained. The greens are quick and the rolling fairways are in pristine condition .The layout is perfect for all player types. The environment is family friendly and the staff was very professional. The value was great and the price was right. On top of it all the burgers in the Players Grille were excellent. I also played 9 holes of footgolf (after my round of real golf) and i will definitely come back to play all of the 18 holes of footgolf, it was awesome. I would recommend this course to everyone. It is one of my all time favorite courses, a must play!

NOISY course

I would never play this course again...(without earplugs). It's a decent course, but is so close to the Cecil County Racetrack you are constantly attacked with the sound of high revving engines. If not for the amazing staff, I would give this course an overall of 2 instead of 3. They were friendly & really welcoming. If you play Chesapeake GC in North East, MD and expect this one to be as nice - be ready to get disappointed. If you're looking for a pretty easy, cheap (I paid $20) family friendly course. This is it.

I come and play here every year driving down from the Philly area.. Chesapeake Rising Run has very nice greens and many real good golf holes.. You wont find discounts on Golfnow.com for this course as its associated with another discount service but dont let it stop you from coming here.. Its a great value for sure.
