Black Rock Golf Club: You have to work for the view!

May 3, 2008
Finding the right course to consider your own home golf course, can be a matter of finding the right one closest to home, playing on it on a regular basis. However, even the poorest golfers will tire of playing the same course over and over and after a few trips down the same fairway. However, may find they play better when they hit a different course on occasion, and the Black Rock golf club is such a course.

About Black Rock

With a slope rating of 121 from the white tees and 124 from the blue, the multiple tees at every tee box makes the course challenging and yet fun, for golfers of every skill level.

Each hole

The 18 holes course cuts through the Shenandoah Valley for the front nine. Then through the Appalachian Mountains on the back nine, creating a scenic view of western Maryland. This provide different in areas to play on in the same course.

The Quality Fairways

Each fairway is carved into the land and the club offers an amazingly large practice green. They also boast a chipping area and sand trap for more practice before hitting the first tee. Bent grass of each green offers straight putting chances and will grab a lifted ball onto the green and hold it for the first putt.

The first hole, a Par 5 of 465 yards, all the way the white tee of the 18th hole at 386 yards, each hole offers a view of nature.

The Water Hazards

Water hazards come into play on four holes, beginning with number four. The short hole may appear easy but any ball that sails over the green will end up swimming on the bottom of a lake.

Number 8 has a small lake around the green. This 396 yard par 4 hole, and on hole 13, a double dog leg to the right has water on the far left side of the front of the green.

The final hole is a straight run to end the round. The 386 yard par four has water immediately in front of the green. The second shot will need to sail over the water or lay up and use a wedge to place the ball on the green for a good finish. Those who miss this shot may find themselves swimming.

The Black Rock Golf Club is a course not for the faint of heart, it is designed to make the player strive for the best and hopefully stay dry in the process. Not a beginners course as the views may be too much of a distraction.
