Est. 1898

The private Baltimore Country Club, located at Five Farms, is home to two 18-hole golf courses, the highly-ranked East course and the also well-rated and pleasantly testing West course.

The East course, often called the Five Farms course, is a tree-lined parkland layout that should not disappoint, with many attractive features and several excellent holes to enjoy. Plenty of golfing challenge, a well-crafted design and usually good upkeep all contribute to the appeal of this course. This private course is generally playable only by members and their invited guests.
