Played here many times. Yes 6 is a change but don't use a driver. 7 is the one that gives me trouble. I want to aim for the far right corner of the fairway but the ground is so hard if your a little to far right your ball can bounce like it hit cart path. I not thrilled about... More

This is your basic muni. I play it often because it's close and the folks are nice. It fools you howver. The front nine appears to be open and easy but suddenly you find yourself on the 6th holle with a lot of bogeys or worse. It's only after I played it a number of times that I realized the... More

Rattlewood is a nice course, run by Montgomery County, in the northern corner of the County. For those familiar with County courses, Rattlewood is a bit like Laytonsville on steroids. A little longer, a little tougher. At 6100 yards from the white tees, Rattlewood is a fun course for the average golfer. It's kept in good condition, and doesn't get... More
