10/4/2007I was invited to play in yet another scramble tournament at the U of MD recently and enjoyed for the second time in a month a fine golf course albeit from a scramble point of view. The course was in pretty good shape for the lack of rain we’ve been having and the greens were actually holding shots and putting true. This course has the look and feel of being longer than you think with many wide fairways creating the illusion of longer than the yardage indicates. For some reason, it seems like Pennsylvania courses (near Harrisburg) are like this to me too…but in any event, this course is a value play for the normal golfer (like we all are) and I can definitely recommend it. We sank several putts on this day and managed to finish only one shot out of the money – if that one putt only would have gone in! You’ll need to try to get to the Par 5 #9 in two – it’s a fairly long (but reachable) uphill par 5. Don’t think it’s too easy though as our four guys could only par it! If you happen to play #18 in regulation and par this long par 4 consider treating yourself to a cold one in U of MD’s really nice bar and grill! Tell them Lefty from sent you! Lefty
4/25/2003I was invited to play in a scramble tourney at U of MD on this overcast day. I hadn’t played U of MD in quite some time and was pleased with the improvements to the condition of the course from my last trip there. On this day, the course was in excellent shape with the fairways and greens being in fine condition for spring. The bunkers looked to be in good shape as well (in a scramble you never hit out of a bunker do you?) and the new clubhouse offers a great bar/lounge. This course reminds me of many of the Harrisburg Area courses with wide-open fairways that visually look longer than the yardage measures. The large greens putt true however you might want to take a second look as these baby’s break more than you’d think from first read and they’re quick too! Luckily, we had several putts to look at to get the right read and managed to drop our share for a second place finish! U of MD is a nice track and the price is right! Lefty’s team
