Baltimore, MD

Country Club of Maryland

Description

The Country Club of Maryland was founded in 1923 as The Rodgers Forge County Club, Inc. and commissioned nationally acclaimed golf architect Herbert Strong to lay out the course over 164 acres of land known as Stevenson Farm. The course was built during the golden age of architecture and remains as one of the few courses in the Mid-Atlantic area from that era. The golf course was completed in 1925 and featured a layout of gentle rolling terrain highlighted by streams, small ponds and natural woodlands. The course measured 6,304 yards, the longest in the area at the time and played to a par 71.

Mr. Strong's design remains basically as it was in 1925 with the exception of the 7th hole which now runs to a par 4 instead of a par 5, thus reducing the course to a par 70. The Signature Valley Holes of 13,14 and 15 are as breathtaking and challenging as ever and remain the heart and soul of a demanding back nine. The Golf Course reflects the design philosophy and style of some of Mr. Strong's more notable courses (Saucon Valley in Pennsylvania and The Canterbury Country Club in Ohio) with expansive fairways and a variety of approaches to greens that vary in size in direct proportion to the overall length of the hole. Old style bunkering and green swales further enhance both the challenge and beauty of this classic golf course.

The dining experience at the club can be summed up as casual, upscale and always delicious. The menus are creative and reminiscent of a country French Provencal style. Our main dining room, the Hunt Room with the immense stone fireplace, gives an elegant feel of an aristocratic great room from another era. The club's Grille Room and Back Bar provide an excellent venue for golfers as well as those interested in a less formal atmosphere to dine.

We have a diverse Membership who come from all walks of life and you will find that everyone is cordial and congenial. The Club's friendly informal atmosphere makes you feel comfortable at all times and there is a sense of pride shown by our members when entertaining guests. We are quite proud of our membership, golf course and club house facilities and are confident that if you like golf and enjoy fine dining in a friendly, social atmosphere, you will be most happy as a member of The Country Club of Maryland.
