Best Golf Courses Near Frederick, MD
Although it is Maryland’s second largest city, Frederick seems more like a cozy small town. The city’s historic downtown is a postcard-worthy picture of Federal architecture and churches whose steeples have given it a “clustered spires” skyline. When making your tee times, look for a discount at Frederick’s highly rated and fittingly named muni, Clustered Spires Golf Course, a mostly open and exposed layout surrounded by the Monocacy River. Three of Maryland’s very best courses are within Frederick’s orbit: hilly Worthington Manor Golf Club in nearby Urbana boasts excellent greens and course conditions that have earned national acclaim; Whiskey Creek Golf Club, a varied layout that demands strategy to navigate around streams, meadows, woodlands, rock outcroppings and stone walls,; and Musket Ridge Golf Course, a layout that rises and falls in the tranquil foothill terrain with nary a house in sight. You may not want to spend all your time on the golf course when you’re in Frederick. Anyone interested in the Civil War will be drawn to Monocacy National Battlefield, the site of “the battle that saved Washington” in 1864 and Antietam National Battlefield, located 25 miles from Frederick. Downtown Frederick is a delightful place to hang out with its rich architecture, unique shops, antique emporiums, galleries, restaurants, and microbreweries.
