4/16/2008It is amazing how a less than an hour drive from the DC beltway can yield a bit of Myrtle Beach. The terrain and vistas are so much of the Atlantic coast or low country that it is like having a mini vacation when you play golf at Swan Point. The views of the water resemble Eagles Landing in Ocean City. Speaking of eagles, there are three pairs of eagles nesting on the course. Be sure to look for the nest above the eighth green. Ospreys nest on the eighteenth, and deer play throughout the course. The course itself is a playable setup, if you take careful note of the trouble. The ‘amen corner’ of the course is 11 thru 13 where back to back par threes precede a ninety degree par four. The first par five you play is the third hole. Do not even think about going for it in two since the shot to the well guarded green has to come in high and soft. This course seems to come into form almost a month ahead of most Balt/DC courses due to the proximity to the water. And a Bonus - great restaurants line the roads home, too Ayce
7/15/2007Plan on taking a ride to Southern Maryland one of these days and play the beautiful Swan Point Golf Club along the banks of the Potomac River. I hadn’t played this course in probably 15 years and was anxious to get back as I remembered it to be very challenging with many water hazards. My memory was correct! At least half of the holes will challenge you with water coming into play and often times you’ll have to lay up to avoid getting wet from the Tee box. On other holes (from the Blue tees) you’ll have to make sure to get your drive airborne to clear the tall grasses growing in the environmental hazards nearby. After getting punished by the front nine, the back nine seemed a bit easier and gave up a few birdies to me and even an eagle for Bogeyman (who launched a 350 yard drive). Number 11 is a hit-the-green-or pay-the-price par 3 over another environmental area. The only “saving grace” is a sand trap which nearly surrounds the green and may actually help save your ball if you do miss the green. If you happen to mess up this hole (which Bogeyman and I both did) you immediately get a make up par three on #12! I enjoyed playing off the zoysia grass and although the greens were a little bumpy on some putts, they held shots extremely well. Traps and tee boxes were in excellent shape and overall, this was a very fun, challenging and playable course. Swan Point’s motto of “member for a day” rings true as all staff members were very courteous and helpful! Like I said, plan a trip to Southern Maryland and get out to Swan Point, you’ll love the course as well as the beautiful scenery! Lefty
