If you're a golfer, chances are good that living near a golf course is a priority for you. I know because that describes my family!
There's no shortage of golf courses in the D.C. - Baltimore area, that's for sure! In Anne Arundel County alone there are thirteen, including three on military installations (Fort Meade and the U.S. Naval Academy). But which are located in a "golf course community" where you and your family could walk or bike to the golf course?
To answer that question for you, I compiled this list of Anne Arundel County golf courses along with addresses and links to their websites. A brief description of each golf course is based on data from golfable.com and information about housing was compiled from listings in the Metropolitan Regional Information Systems, Inc. (MRIS), our regional MLS. Courses I consider to be located in "golf course communities" are marked with an asterisk (*).
This Par-70 course was built on rolling hills that wind throughout the Bay Hills community. Greens are bent grass and the fairways are zoysia. Memberships available but not required.
Neighboring Homes in the Bay Hills subdivision line the fairways of Bay Hills Golf Club. Homes range from about $315,000 to $550,000, including detached homes and townhomes. Chances are good that your children can walk or bike to Bay Hills Golf Club from home.
This is a nine hole par 3 course (par 27 total) with generous and hilly Bermuda-grass fairways and bent-grass greens that are are fast and undulating. Yardage for the men's tees ranges between 80 and 172 yards. The ladies' yardage ranges between 67 and 123 yards. Membership required.
Neighboring Homes in this "over-55" community are priced from about $265,000 to $525,000 including detached homes, townhomes, duplexes and high-rise condos.
This Par 71 course has sand bunkers scattered throughout the design and a water hazard that comes into play on hole #7. The Bermuda-grass fairways are narrow with most being tree lined. This terrain is very hilly, so you can expect a few uneven lies. The Bermuda-grass greens are small, undulating, sloped, and generally fast. Access limited to authorized personnel.
Bring your long game to this 7211-yard Par 72 course. Bent grass greens are larger than they look and fairways (also bent grass) are lined with homes. It's a beautiful course, with two creeks and two ponds that come into play on several holes. Membership required.
Neighboring homes include detached homes, townhomes and apartments in "Old" Crofton, Crofton Commons, Crofton Park, Crofton Town, and Lake Louise. Most homes range from the mid $200,000's to mid $600,000's.
This is Anne Arundel County's newest and only 36-hole public golf course. The "four nines" -North, South, East and West - cover more than 800 acres of diverse woodland and provide a wide variety of golf terrains and challenges for golfers of all skill levels. Bent grass greens and fairways. Public access.
Large bent-grass greens, so three-putting is a common occurrence. Located in a heavily wooded area, featuring several moderate elevation changes. This is a Par-72 course with bent-grass fairways often lined by homes. Membership required.
Neighboring homesare located in a mature community of detached homes that line the fairways of Chartwell Country Club. Price range from the mid $500,000's to mid-$700,000's.
Bring your best putting to these quick bent-grass sloped greens. The Bermuda-grass fairways have moderate speed, and out-of-bounds markers come into play on two holes of this Par-72 course. The signature hole is #18, a 480-yard, par 5, providing some of the most breathtaking scenery the course has to offer. Membership required.
Neighboring homes in the Old South Country Club community are few, and their prices are usually over a million dollars. There are six on the market at this time ranging from $987,500 to $1,395,000.
