7/4/2008This year our Fourth of July golf outing would not be interrupted 5 times by rain like last year 🙂 Only TWICE did it rain during the back nine, but without lightning we were allowed to continue. The rain softened the quick greens and made the course very playable! Seems everything in life IS a trade-off. Again the course was in great shape, with surprisingly few players for a holiday. Following our round we went to a crab feast at the Cracked Claw which is 3 miles down Route 80.

7/4/2007Always like playing golf on the 4th of July. Part of that is the smell of course neighbors’ grills so that when the round is over, the grub at home tastes even better. Such aromas are scarce at WM because few homes border this fine course. Can’t have everything so I guess I’ll take a first class course and get my sniffs at home. Every time I play WM I am reminded of that line “it’s the economy, stupid.” In this case the line should be “it’s the greens.” These greens really make the course the wonderful challenge that it is. They must triple cut and roll theses things to get them to run about 14 on a stimpmeter. Were it not for the greens, scores would be quite low on this grip n rip beauty. Our holiday round was interrupted 5 times by showers, but still managed to be a blast for the 40 in our group. AYCE
5/10/2004All the good growing conditions and TLC from the grounds crew have left Worthington Manor in excellent shape. This open, playable layout rewards long hitters, but can make short strokers feel good about their games, too. Most holes set up well off the tee, with few blind tee shots. From the tips the course can be a bear; in fact an Open qualifier is played there. WM is an easy drive from Balt/Wash through the rolling Maryland countryside. Frequently cooler and breezier in the hills, this is a great choice for play in the summer heat. Compared to prices of other local courses in that area Worthington Manor in an exceptional buy that this Waggler highly recommends. Ayce
12/29/2003A Monday “work day” of 60-plus degrees turned into a golf review “work day” for me. Some guys have all the luck! I hadn’t played Worthington in quite some time and was anxious to check it out although you can’t expect pristine conditions in the winter…or can you? I’m happy to report that in spite of it being winter, Worthington was extremely playable. Sure, the sandtraps were not full of sand, mostly hard packed, and in need of maintenance but then again, you’re not supposed to hit into them now are you? On this day, Worthington had the “wide open” feel but also provides several must carry shots over hazards. Depending on which tees you play, you may consider not hitting the driver on some holes – I’ll let you figure out which ones! The fairways, greens and tees were in relatively good shape for the time of year and I enjoyed a great round. I say get in all the golf while you can, especially on winter days like this! Lefty
10/13/2000The Waggle.com team reviewed Worthington Manor prior to our big Charity golf event (see the Players guide for more specific hole by hole info). This track is quite a challenge to play and the Manor House is a great setting for a clubhouse. The fairways are cut exceptionally close creating the need to hit’em clean but they were in exceptional shape. You will also need to bring your best game for hitting off of sloping lies as Worthington’s undulating and sloping fairways will not yield many flat lies (hey, that’s all part of the fun of it!) When you do reach the greens in regulation, you had best concentrate hard because these greens are fast and have a lot of break so read’em or weep! It is a fair course and requires good ball striking and a soft putting touch to score well, but then again, that’s what golf is all about! Worthington Manor is one of those courses that you’ll want to play again and again, I know we will! Lefty, Bogeyman
7/15/2000Wow, what a course! This is my first trip to Worthington Manor and I love it. If you are a big hitter who is sometimes wild, this is the course for you. And if you get lucky and hit some big drives you will be rewarded. 3 of the par 5s are reachable in 2 as this course tempts you to go for it. Plenty of trouble awaits but you can generally find, play and recover from errant tee shots. A fantastic layout up and down the hills with lots of doglegs. Be sure to bring your 'A' putting game - these greens are tough. Bogeyman
1/6/2000Worthington is primarily a links style course over very rolling hills against the backdrop of Sugarloaf Mountain. It offers generous fairways that are well bunkered, well bunkered greens and a few water hazards which don't come into play that often. I played the course in early-January and the conditions were generally good for winter, especially the greens. For players like me who like to walk and don't like paying the weekend cart rates, Worthington offers walking rates on the weekends during the winter. I enjoyed playing the course and thought it was fair yet challenging. Vranko
