Mid Atlantic Golf Destinations

  • 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.

    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.
    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.
  • 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 Hyatt River Marsh Golf Club is Maryland's leading Eastern Shore golf course. The classic design incorporates challenging elements including sculpted bunkers and mature trees but balances them with wide, player-friendly fairways and inviting greens.
    The 18-hole Maryland National Golf Club in Middletown, MD is a semi-private golf course that opened in 2002. Designed by Arthur Hills, Maryland National Golf Club measures 6811 yards from the longest tees and has a slope rating of 139 and a 73.
    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.
  • 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.

    Laurel Hill Golf Club has some of the best conditions of any public course in the area, which is why it is popular amongst the locals. It is hard to believe that the club sits where the DC Department of Corrections facility at Lorton used to be located. The layout has a traditional design, but unlike older golf courses it runs a lengthy 7,102 yards from the back tees.
    The 18-hole Virginia Beach National Golf Club in Virginia Beach, VA is a public golf course that opened in 1999. Designed by Curtis Strange and Pete Dye, Virginia Beach National Golf Club measures 7104 yards from the longest tees and has a slope rating of 136 and a 74.
    The 18-hole Heron Ridge Golf Club in Virginia Beach, VA is a public golf course that opened in 1998. Designed by Fred Couples and Gene Bates, Heron Ridge Golf Club measures 7017 yards from the longest tees and has a slope rating of 131 and a 73.
