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.
    Frog Hollow Golf Club in Middletown boasts the title of "best public golf course" in Delaware. The course has a links-style layout that is challenging but still player-friendly enough to appeal to beginners, seniors, and juniors. The layout is wide open and quite forgiving but there are still plenty of hazards with which to contend.
    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.

    Cahoon Plantation in Chesapeake originally opened with a 27-hole layout but it has seen a major transformation since opening. One of the nines was eliminated and the flat terrain was molded into a gently rolling championship layout. The golf course has mostly parkland holes but there are some that have a links-feel, guaranteeing that there's enough variety to please any golfer.
    Cannon Ridge Golf Club sprawls across 200 acres of rolling countryside situated along the shores of the Rappahannock River. Located in historic Fredericksburg on what was once a Civil War battle site, cannon emplacements accent the course. The diverse layout wanders through dense woodlands and across bluffs and deep ravines.
    The 18-hole Westpark Golf Club in Leesburg, VA is a semi-private golf course that opened in 1968. Designed by Ed Ault, Westpark Golf Club measures 6430 yards from the longest tees and has a slope rating of 125 and a 70.5 USGA rating. The course features 4 sets of tees for different skill levels.
  • 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 Clustered Spires Golf Course in Frederick, MD is a public golf course that opened in 1991. Designed by Ault, Clark & Associates, Clustered Spires Golf Course measures 6913 yards from the longest tees and has a slope rating of 130 and a 72.

    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.
