Nestled within the fuzzy green heart of Montgomery County, the par 71 championship golf course stretches out its emerald expanses to embrace new members with fast, smooth greens and sleek bermuda grass fairways. Challenges abound across the course’s 6,700 yards and 18 holes, where golfers of all skill levels must test their swings against rolling hills speckled with trees and haunted by the vengeful ghosts of overworked caddies. Those who can brave such hazards will delight in the course’s picturesque beauty, which has hosted such PGA-sanctioned events as the Maryland Open Qualifier and MAPGA Titleist Tour. Members can fine-tune their techniques in a variety of practice facilities that include a short game area and a full-length driving range with covered grass surfaces to ensure comfortable practice in all seasons.
PGA professional Richard Rosenthal commands a staff of experienced instructors available to help improve crooked swings or overzealous putts. After a long day on the links, members can grab a casual bite to eat at the Willow Tree Inn or peruse the full-service pro shop for balls to replace those mangled by mini sarlacc pits.
Montgomery Village Golf Club
Montgomery Village Golf Club's Edmund Ault–designed course sprawls across 6,726 yards of emerald corridors cleaved through the arboreal heart of Montgomery County. Fresh off recent refurbishments that include new tee boxes and switching to a bermuda hybrid grass, management continues to improve on a course that has hosted multiple PGA-sanctioned events and royal grass-grazing parties for traveling goat monarchs. Fairways tunnel through unforgiving tree lines as golfers swing their way toward each green, where fast surfaces form breaking putts. Alongside the pristine par 71, the club's grass-tee driving range, putting green, and full-service pro shop help streamline clubbers' birdie-hunting skills, and the Willow Tree Inn's restaurant and grill keeps players from dining on freshly torn divots with an all-day menu of entrees and drinks.
