Waverly Woods Golf Club – 08/29/2009

Waverly Woods Golf Club Marriottsville, MD – 8/29/2009
A visit by my family was an excellent excuse to get out and play a weekend round of golf and Waverly Woods was the venue on this overcast but nice Saturday morning. It had been a while since my last trip to Waverly so I was anxious to get back to the fast tricky greens that I remembered but alas, it was aeration season and they weren’t quite healed yet. Nonetheless, we were treated to another fine round of excellent course conditions with that one exception. Waverly starts you off with a fairly innocent par 4 but then holes 2, 3, and 4 will have you wondering how long of a day you’re in for. On this day, I remember number 2 which can be a tricky par 5 if you let it, requiring proper club selection on your approach to this green or you’re in the waste area (I found out the hard way!). Number 3 requires an accurate drive to leave a short approach (lots of room to bail on the right but then you have a tricky up and down for a par) and then number 4 requires a long accurate drive which leaves a long iron to an uphill green that usually has the flag hidden behind a large mound (it’s got one of those really long flagsticks). I always enjoy playing here because of its challenging layout. The only downside is the fairly large entry fee to play – alas, perhaps they will get into the Waggle Pass soon? The bar and grill is very comfortable with a big screen TV if you want to hang out for the 19th hole as well. Guinness was on tap this day which is almost always a nice play! Lefty
