Hi from Maryland

12 posts in this topic

Hi everyone!  I've been playing a few years, but not enough to really improve much.  I probably average a double bogey game or maybe a little worse.  I'm in my 50's now, so I don't expect to ever become a scratch player, but I do have a goal of becoming a bogey player someday.  Of course, I need to break 100 first!

I really love to get out on the different courses here in the Frederick, Maryland area, but not nearly as much as I would like.  (Don't you just hate how nasty things like jobs get in the way??)

Welcome! I'm sort of in the same boat. Occasionally I'll have a bogey average round, but it's rare.

And yes...jerbs always getting in the way.

I'm from Maryland too. Parents live in the Frederick Area. Where do you play.

For a good value I like Rattlewood. For a great course I like Whiskey Creek. In a (penny) pinch, Hope Valley.

I like to play different courses.  If I just want to get out and hit some balls, I typically go to Frederick Golf Club.  You can't beat the price - $13 to walk all day Fri-Mon, $8 to walk all day Tue-Thu and twilight other days.  It's a short course and pretty wide open, but it's great for practicing.

For regular courses, I probably play Glade Valley and Maple Run the most.  I got my first par 4 birdie at Glade Valley.

I'm still saving up to play courses like Whiskey Creek.

I see these on Golfnow all the time but have never played them.  Do you like those courses?

I'm down in Rockville.

Glade Valley is a nice course, but fairly easy for hackers like me, although I also scored two of my few birdies there (we won't talk about some of the other holes ).

Maple Run is where my organization has it's regular golf scramble.  It doesn't have the best facilities, but the course itself is fine.  It's not a ultra-manicured course and can sometimes get a bit soggy if there's been a lot of rain.  The front nine is pretty open, but the back nine can get tight at times from the trees.

So if I were to try out one of those, you'd recommend Glade Valley over Maple Run?

Have you ever played Little Bennett?  That's a nice course.

Glade Valley is probably a little better course, but you can usually get into Maple Run a little cheaper.  It also seems to be easier to get tee times at Maple Run.  Either one is fine though.

No, I haven't done that one yet.  I'll have to get there.

Welcome! from a former Maryland resident (grew up in Silver Spring, and moved back for a few years to Germantown).
