  • 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 Waverly Woods Golf Course in Woodstock, MD is a public golf course that opened in 1998. Designed by Arthur Hills, Waverly Woods Golf Course measures 7024 yards from the longest tees and has a slope rating of 135 and a 74 USGA rating.

    River Run Golf Club in Ocean City is just minutes away from the beach. The golf course has different front and back nines that make for an interesting round. This Gary Player design starts out across a wide-open landscape before moving on to more tree-lined terrain on the backside. The player-friendly layout is gentle enough for beginners with medium-sized greens that aren't especially difficult and generous fairways that offer plenty of room.
