|7/15/2004||This course has a wonderful weekday twilight rate of $25, but that’s far from the only reason to play here. Always in great condition, this time the course was preened for the Futures Tour event it was hosting in late July. The front nine is considerably easier than the back as Elevation changes and dramatically sloping fairways challenge golfers of all skill levels. There is one par five on the back where a blind tee shot over a hill sets you up for a picturesque approach to a green guarded by what appears to be half a quarry. The next hole is best described as the ‘knotch’ hole since you have to thread your tee and approach shots through giant ‘vees’ down the long fairway. The rough is almost jungle like in spots on the front which makes for a very attractive course albeit a punitive one! Ayce|
|6/17/2003||Cross Creek is trying to bring a Futures Tour event to the DC/Balt area. We had stopped by to find out more about this exciting news and were lucky enough to be able to sneak in a round too. This facility just keeps getting better! When Cross Creek opened last year we were impressed with the layout and the unusually good condition for a new course. This year the fairways and rough have continued to improve and the new clubhouse is just about open (they were moving out of the trailer today). If you haven't played here yet, try to find some room in your schedule for a trip to Beltsville soon. Bogeyman|
|9/12/2002||Cross Creek was worth the wait! After hearing about this course more than a year ago and waiting through all the delayed openings, we were anxious to play here. And, we weren’t disappointed. #1 is a beautiful opening hole and the course just kept on getting better. We played the Creekside tees and even though the yardage was only 6035 - it didn’t seem short to us. And, you can play from the tips (6356 yards) for a completely different and even more challenging experience.
The course is a scenic treat carved through the woods of Beltsville, MD straddling both Prince George’s and Montgomery counties. Located on what was once a junk yard and gravel quarry, Cross Creek is now an environmental success for the community and a super track for the Mid-Atlantic golfer. The only evidence of its former life appears as you approach the spectacular 13th green and are faced with boulders and cliff-like backdrops. This mountain-like scene continues on through #14 where you will be playing through a narrow valley where shot selection and accuracy are key (hint: stay right). Cross Creek offers lots of trees and wetlands, as you may guess with plenty of “Forest Retention Areas”, “Reforestation Projects”, and “Environmentally Sensitive Areas”.
Approaching the course you may get the impression this is another course built right thru a community, with houses lining the fairways. It’s NOT! No houses are seen until #9 and then (except for your first shot on #13) they are far enough away to remain unobtrusive.
Cross Creek is a course that can get inside your head with tight fairways, plenty of water, and several forced carries. But don’t let it mess with you; most of the landing areas are more generous than they appear. The first time you play here a couple of holes may confuse you, but the yardage books are coming soon and should clear things up.
The location is convenient for both Washington and Baltimore golfers. Cross Creek is located just off I-95 near the DC Beltway. Although there is still some surrounding construction from the home sites and the clubhouse is currently a trailer, this is a course you must play! Bogeyman/Hacker
