I like Rattlewood because it drains well and is far less crowded than many of the other MoCo courses. It can be slow, but nothing like Little Bennett or Needwood. Course is fun, and always in decent conditon.

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...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...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...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...More
