Wakefield Valley Golf Club—a public course canopied by storybook foliage—presents 27 distinct holes across three courses that cater to both amateur and advanced club wielders. Bring along a coworker or a comember of a grass-admiration society and select any two of the facility’s three nine-hole courses to play on the same grounds as U.S. Open and U.S. Amateur qualifiers. The green course’s long par 5s and the gold course’s tough tee shots challenge players to flex their swing muscles, and unfriendly water hazards and hilly terrain pepper the white course. The golf club encourages use of its practice facility with two large buckets of balls and drive-by complimenting of other players’ games from the provided golf cart.
Wakefield Valley Golf Club
Nestled in the rolling hills of Maryland's countryside, the Wakefield Valley Golf Club showcases three different nine-hole courses. Each course presents a unique set of challenges, with the green course showcasing lengthy par 5s and the white course challenging golfers with hilly terrain and water holes that lure errant shots and experimental scuba-tank golf bags. The gold course, meanwhile, sets up demanding tee shots into narrow fairways, as seen on its signature eighth hole, where water guards the green on all sides.
Golfers can warm up for rounds at the driving range and practice green or employ the swing-honing advice of PGA Professional Scott Magee, who teaches enough students to believe that he will find one who can pull a putter from a stone. Guests can also refuel rumbling stomachs with casual food and drinks at Fenby’s Restaurant.
