I have played this course several times and like it. As municipal courses go, it is well maintained and the staff is friendly and pleasant. A couple of times I had a major delay in my scheduled tee time and without prompting they cut my fee in half. I'm not an experienced golfer and I find this course fun to... More

Rattlewood is a fun place to play as it is pretty open and the conditions are better than you would expect from a muni. The best features of the course are the staff and the prices. The staff is very friendly and accommodating and the prices can't be beat. The "member for a day" program is terrific. For one low... More

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 decent public course. Not overly challenging, but some good long holes, and some nice "position" holes. I recommend Rattlewood if you need to work out your driver - there are a number of holes that don't penalize you if your 30 yards left or right. Weekends can be painfully slow, so you may want to stick with... More

Met my golfing partners from Towson, MD halfway and chose Rattlewood blindly. What a surprise, great condition, outstanding slick, undulating greens. Not too difficult, average length at 6100 yards (white), but not easy either. Most greens are well-bunkered, you've got to hit the shots and preferably keep the ball below the hole, or 3 -putts will result. Very fun round,... 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
