Mid Atlantic Golf Destinations

  • Maryland

    Maryland is a small state compared to neighboring Pennsylvania and Virginia, but with more than 200 golf courses -- one for approximately every 43 square miles of land -- a golfer is never far from a fairway.

    The 18-hole Rattlewood Golf Course in Mount Airy, MD is a public golf course that opened in 1995. Designed by Brian Ault, Rattlewood Golf Course measures 6501 yards from the longest tees and has a slope rating of 125 and a 70.4 USGA rating. The course features 4 sets of tees for different skill levels.
    The 18-hole Lodestone Golf Club in Mc Henry, MD is a private/resort golf course that opened in 2009. Designed by Hale Irwin and Todd Schoeder, Lodestone Golf Club measures 7475 yards from the longest tees and has a slope rating of 139 and a 75.
    Ocean City Golf Club boasts 36 holes of championship golf. The Seaside Course opened in 1959 and it was later joined by the Newport Bay Course. Both offer scenic views of the surrounding marshes and bay. Newport Bay is a formidable challenge but it will test your ability to think strategically, not your distance. Strategically placed bunkers come into play and the subtle contours of the landscape were utilized to their full extent.
  • Delaware

    When it comes to golf, Delaware has become the little state that could, and it offers a surprisingly wide variety of off-course attractions.

    Garrisons Lake Golf Club, nine miles north of Dover, is a historic play centrally located to all parts of Delaware. The course is nature friendly: with tree-lined fairways and large, well bunkered greens throughout. The par-72, 7,060-yard course was recently renovated and improved.
    Designed by Arthur Hills, White Clay Creek Country Club in Wilmington, Del., features 7,007 yards of golf from the longest tees. The par-72 championship golf course has water coming into play on all 18 holes.
    Deerfield Golf Club in Newark, Del., is a 145-acre public course, billed as a “natural treasure.” The 18-hole championship course gets the moniker thanks to its surroundings -- the ancient forest of White Clay Creek State Park.
  • Virginia

    From Virginia Beach on the Atlantic to the Blue Ridge Mountains and the Washington D.C. area, the state of Virginia -- or Commonwealth of Virginia as it's officially called -- offers a wide variety of golf over a geographically diverse area.

    The 18-hole Kiln Creek Golf Club & Resort in Newport News, VA is a resort golf course that opened in 1990. Designed by Tom Clark, Kiln Creek Golf Club & Resort measures 6888 yards from the longest tees and has a slope rating of 130 and a 73.
    Located in Montpelier, Hollows Golf Club has a 27-hole layout that is considered one of the best values in the area. The holes are divided into three nines that provide three different 18-hole combinations. The green fees are applicable the whole day, which allows golfers to play all three courses if they have the time and the inclination. The Cottage/Road combination only has water on one hole, but it is a memorable one.
    The 18-hole Blue/Red Course at Shenandoah Valley Golf Club in Front Royal, VA is a semi-private golf course that opened in 1974. Designed by Buddy Loving, Blue/Red Course at Shenandoah Valley Golf Club measures 6399 yards from the longest tees and has a slope rating of 126 and a 71.
