If you are an experienced player, a weekend warrior or an interested spectator, there are endless golf opportunities in Maryland. From the championship tees at Bulle Rock, home of the LPGA championship, to the forward tees of Lighthouse Sound, with the Chesapeake Bay on the horizon, Maryland offers golf prospects for all levels of players.

We are blessed with the mountainous terrain of Western Maryland, where you can ski in the winter and golf in the summer. Then as you move east toward Frederick, your family can enjoy a history lesson at Civil War battlefields and tee it up at one of the fine local courses.

The Baltimore-Washington corridor has a variety of courses with tee choices for the beginner to the advanced player. From there, you can head toward Annapolis and the Chesapeake Bay Bridge. The terrain flattens, but that just gives all of us golfers a better view of the sailboats on the water.

After you cross the Bay Bridge, favorite courses are found in Denton and St. Michaels. A stroll around town and a bushel of crabs from one of the many bayside seafood restaurants is, in my book, a perfect Maryland day. In Ocean City, the golf choices are endless. Take the family to one of the putt-putt places near the beach or experience golf at courses that make you learn to play the wind off the bay along with trying to keep your ball away from the water. Enjoy views of the bayside wildlife while also enjoying the great game of golf.
