Nice Golf Course

This course is really cool with a friendly staff. The course itself is not so challenging, but it does have lots of dog legs that make you think. The only problem I had was with the bathroom in the bar area. On top of just being old and in desperate need of a remodel, they were totally disgusting. You’re better off finding a tree somewhere.

Everything was perfect, however the beverage cart only came by us at the 5th hole and was no where to be found after that. That needs to really improve

One Bad Apple

Too bad one white haired guy has to be rude and ruin the bunch. If that’s the way you treat GolfNow customers then get off it if you don’t need the business. Haha members get better deals on GN than having county card sometimes so why bother getting one.

My first time and not my last

An excellent bang for the buck. Course was in very good shape. For the higher handicapper, it provides enough challenges and a few opportunities to get a birde. Staff was nice and the rangers did a good job on the pace of play, which could have been a bit better. There were a few holes with 5 minute waits or longer. The county should be proud of what they have. Please keep up the good work.

Preakness Valley

Course is on the short side & most holes are wide open but still challenging. Couple of the holes where you have to cut corners are the perfect risk/reward. Will definitely play again.

Weird layout

To start the course conditions were really good so that’s not the problem. That’s really where it ends, however. When we got there we found out the course was closed and the starter was really rude. Kept screaming at us to play the west course. It took them 30 minutes to explain that they were spraying the course for bugs so our 10:30 tee time didn’t start until closer you 11. Also 7 and 8 are completely idiotic layouts. Both ask you to hit a tee shot over trees directly in front of you on a 90 degree dogleg fairway...Just stupid. Other than that it was an okay course

Great Day of Golf

We got a very nice deal on Golfnow. There was an outing that was not quite done by our tee time so we had to wait a little. No big deal. The course and greens were in excellent condition. Staff was friendly and helpful. We will definitely return.

Sun is shining and rain has finally stopped

Played with a friend today and even though we got off to a delayed start and a slow pace, for 9 holes, due to elderly players ahead of us. Course was in great shape and carts were allowed on all but 3 holes due to soggy conditions. With all of the rain we've been having, I think that was pretty good.
