Where2Golf says: 

Musket Ridge Golf Club: This delightful Joe Lee design is laid out in a natural woodland setting, with much of the course exuding a pleasantly open feel. The starting hole on each nine-hole loop plays down and away from the elevated clubhouse, giving a taste of the majestic Maryland landscape that's constantly in view from the course.

The handsomely crafted and well-presented layout is characterised by pleasantly undulating terrain and a stylish mix of straightaway and doglegging holes. A liberal scattering of small pine trees define the holes, along with rolling mounds and an attractive array of clear-to-see fairway and greenside bunkers. Generally good-width fairways should inspire confident hitting from the tee, but they do occasionally tighten up (as you may do) at the long par-4 7th and uphill par-5 9th.

Musket Ridge's two nines, the Blue and the Ridge, sweep up and downhill, with some holes riding high, while others meander through meadowland at lower levels. Between the holes there's generally enough space, although this isn't a particularly expansive or roaming layout. A round here is certainly a walkable proposition, although one with plenty of elevation change and undulation.

MOST MEMORABLE HOLE: The redan-style par-3 2nd is just one of many excellent holes to enjoy in this classy layout. Along with the downhill par-4 1st it brings water into play, which no other holes do. Here at the 2nd you are required to make a tee-to-green carry over the pond to an awaiting and heavily bunker defended green.

Did you know?

Musket Ridge's logo shows two different flags, appended to the type of muskets used in the American Civil War (1861-65). The lefthand flag ("Stars & Stripes") is that of the United States, as used by the "Union" side. The Confederate States of the "South" initially used the righthand flag (as depicted on the logo), which was known as the "Stars and Bars". Its seven stars represented the original seven states of the Confederacy (South Carolina, Mississippi, Florida, Alabama, Georgia, Louisiana, Texas). Later in 1861 more states joined the Confederacy and the number of stars on the flag increased to nine, then eleven, then thirteen.

Latest golf course reviews
Walton Heath Golf Club (Old course): Top golfers and golf writers have long acknowledged Walton Heath as one of the finest heathland courses in the British Isles. In fact there are two courses here, the Old and New. Read more...
The Welcombe Hotel Spa & Golf Club: provides an excellent Stay & Play opportunity, just a mile out of town from William Shakespear's birthplace in the centre of Stratford. The golf course, laid out in the grounds of a sumptuous stately mansion (now hotel), offers many undulating and stylishly crafted golf holes. Read more...
Royal Ostend Golf Club: represents Belgium’s only real "beside-the-seaside" links golf course (others like Royal Zoute are located a little way inland). Here at Ostend many holes make excellent use of an impressive area of sand dunes. From the long par-4 5th through to the par-5 14th, you play across fabulously open and gently undulating golfing terrain, with few trees, fine sea views and probably a bit of North Sea wind thrown in for good measure.

Koksijde Golf ter Hille Golf Club: on what was previously open farmland, an enjoyable and challenging links-style layout has been crafted. Perhaps the inspiration for Koksijde's new course came from a renowned Harry Colt layout that existed in the 1920s just a couple of kilometres to the west. Read more...
