Maryland is well known for its long golfing history which dates back to the mid-18th century. With over 160 official golf clubs to choose from, golf enthusiasts have plenty of options. Here are Jeanne Rowzee’s suggestions for the best courses to choose for your next golfing session.
Eagle’s Landing Golf Club — Berlin
Owned by the town of Ocean City, this golf club is well maintained and provides extra challenges via ocean winds. Interestingly enough, this golf course is priced lower than many other golf courses in Maryland, but still provides an amazing course and breathtaking marsh vistas.
Bulle Rock — Havre de Grace
This club hosted the LPGA Championship from 2005 to 2009 and thus provides good challenges for pro players. However, you’ll also find it is quite accommodating for new players as well. Designed by Pete Dye, this course has been mentioned in Golf Digest and Golf magazines. Jeanne Rowzee suggests players of all levels try this course. Bonus fact — this course was named after the first thoroughbred horse that was brought to the United States.
Lake Presidential Golf Club
Set aside a scenic 30-acre lake, this club is managed by the leader in golf course management, Troon Golf. This club also has an 11,000 square-foot clubhouse complete with luxury locker rooms, a grill and bar, a full-service Pro Shop, a private conference area, and an event and banquet space that can accommodate over 200 guests.
Maryland National Golf Club — Middletown
Designed by the legendary architect Arthur Hills, this golf course uses natural changes in elevation and wetlands to provide a classic style course with a truly Maryland-style spin. According to Jeanne Rowzee, this course will provide a unique and inspiring challenge for golfers of any level.
Links at Perry Cabin — St-Michaels
This is a recent course that opened up in Spring 2018. Like Bulle Rock, this course was also designed by Peter Dye. You’ll get to test your skills with the iconic view of the Eastern Shore and the Chesapeake Bay while making your way through stunning terrains. This club also features world-class amenities, perfect for play, relaxation, and exploration.
Greystone — White Hall
Jeanne Rowzee suggests this course for access to reasonable prices and amazing views of the northern Baltimore County. It’s always in good condition and offers amazing service. Experienced golfers will find that this course offers more challenge than other Baltimore County courses.
Queenstown Harbor Golf Links — Queenstown
A great aspect of this club is that it offers a shorter alternative course for beginners — The Lake Course.
Additionally, their more challenging course, the Rivers Course, was renovated in 2011 to make use of Chester River’s beautiful views and added challenge.
River Marsh Golf Club — Cambridge
If you’re looking for a thrilling game, this course is definitely for you. Located next to the Choptank River, this golf course involves challenges such as a long shot over Shoal Creek and water and sand running through the entirety of the 18th hole to end your game with a bang.
Golfers travel from far and wide to play in Maryland and it’s easy to see why. With so many courses to choose from, Jeanne Rowzee encourages you to grab your gear and check out these historic and picturesque courses for yourself.
