A good course, too pricey in season
Played a number of public courses in the area this past week and Waverly Woods is right up there with Woodlands, Timbers of Troy, or Hobbit's Glen. I enjoyed the course, as always. Unfortunately, we typically do not play there during the summer as it is a bit to pricey when compared these other public courses in Howard/Baltimore/Carroll of similar conditions. Play it in the Fall. Waverlys snack bar does have a better menu than many public courses though.
Thank you for the complimentary review. It is difficult for a private, tax paying business such as ours to compete on price across the board with the government and non-profit operations you mentioned. We do offer discounts during the summer, however, that often compare favorably with what is offered by those non-tax paying operations ;). Thank you!
This is one of the best courses in the Columbia, MD area. Great layout, enough challenge but playable for almost any skill level, all at a good price.
Thank you for the kind review!
Surprisingly Nice, Overlooked Gem
Waverly Woods Golf Club - Marriottsville, MD
A beautiful golf course by one of my favorite local course architects Arthur Hills (Designer of other favs Blue Mash and National Golf Club). Waverly Woods is a very nice layout that take advantage of it rolling hills topography. The fairways are fairly generous and the course is enjoyable and not stressful. The course is routed through a residential community but houses are rarely in play and often hidden behind tall trees that frame these generous and hilly fairways. Note: if playing for the first time get the yardage book which provides advice on how to play, many fairways are dramatically pitched in one direction and a well struck drive could end up with a horrible lie. I would recommend playing this course and I can not wait to get out there again. Staff was friendly and did a great job managing pace of play
Thank you for the wonderful review!
You must play this course!
I was really impressed with this golf course for several reasons:
1. The conditions and layout of the course were outstanding! The fairways were lush, greens were smooth and fast, the bunkers were well prepared, and the pace of play was really good. The staff were very courteous and professional.
2. By booking online with Golf Now, my foursome and I ware able to save $17 each for a rate of $67, which was one of the "hot deals". That's a great value for a course as nice as Waverly Woods.
3. The practice facilities are impeccable. They have a large driving range area where you are hitting from perfect fairway-like lies. The range could be longer because the bigger hitters can reach one of the holes on the back 9, but that's relatively minor. The putting green is very much representative of the greens on the course and is well-maintained. They also have a nice chipping green.
4. They give you a free small bucket of balls included in your tee time.
My only complaint would be that I would expect the clubhouse to be larger with a more expanded bar and food menu. The bar is relatively small and the food selection is pretty liimited.
But it's all about the golf, right? Don't miss this one if you want a challenging but rewarding round of golf.
Some really interesting holes
Overall a nice course. Greens in decent shape but be prepared to repair more than your own pitch mark. Layout is interesting with some nice tricky holes in the mix. I’ve played it 3 times now. Shot 80, 75, and 91. Go figure.
Goof conditions with the weather we got very friendly staff
Waverly Woods Has Weathered the Heat
Many of the surrounding courses have taken a beating over the past several weeks with the intense heat, so I wasn't sure what to expect with Waverly Woods. I was pleasantly surprised at the course conditions. The fairways were in good condition with plenty of green grass (although, there were tons of unfilled divots, which is not the course's fault but rather inconsiderate players). The greens had been aerated, and they offered a reduced rate as a result. The greens weren't terrible, though, to putt on. Tee boxes, rough, and bunkers were all in good shape. They put us out 20 minutes before our tee time, and we never saw anyone until the 17th hole when a twosome was catching up with our foursome. Overall, Waverly Woods was a pleasure to play, and they have done a great job at keeping this course in great shape given the recent weather conditions. Kudos to the Super! The staff is also very friendly and welcoming. We had lunch afterwards and the Grill staff were accommodating and made our lunch stop quick for us. Will definitely play again.
Thank you for recognizing the efforts of our fantastic staff. We are glad you enjoyed your day!
I’ve been wanting to play this course for about 2 years and I had an excellent time. The course was in pretty good condition, but the fairways were in great shape . Very friendly staff that assisted me with a course layout booklet and provided me with tips since this was my first time playing it. The course layout was challenging because of some blind trouble areas. You really need to play this course smart. Well worth the cost, and the grass driving range a huge bonus.
I enjoyed playing Waverly Woods golf course. It was in great shape and I liked the layout. Using golf now was simple and I felt the price was very reasonable. I will definitely play this course again.
Thanks for the nice review Tim!
The course was in great shape. Pace was good. The ranger and cart were very friendly. They both came around a bunch of times to check on us. The only downside is the course is a little pricey. There was no bag drop area or anybody helping and the regular rate is $80. I paid $58 and that was still a little high but I wanted to try it out. I would play again perhaps in the evening when the rates drop.
Thanks Jason, sorry we weren't there to greet you at the bag drop that day.
Fun course in decent shape. Pricey without the use of any coupon/deals.
Great Test Of Golf
The only drawback to the day was that the range was closed for servicing.
Rough was fair in length and dense in depth. Greens were fast and very true.
This is a true test of golf. Nothing tricky, but don’t stop thinking, mental mistakes are punitive.
Course needs to be played 2 times to really develop an approach to shoot a score that represents your ability.
Looking forward to playing again. Soon...
Thanks Stephen - hopefully the staff offered you an after round range upgrade or extra nine holes - that is our Tuesday morning range maintenance offering.since you can't use your complimentary warm-up range balls Tuesday morning.
