Black Rock Golf Club Gives 18 Holes Of Challenging Beauty

Feb 23, 2008
Finding the right golf course to consider your home course is often a matter of finding the one closes to the home and playing it consistently. However, even the most disastrous duffers will tire of playing the same course over and over and after a few dozen trips down the same fairway, watching the ball dive into the same water hazard, may have them considering giving up the game. However, may find they play better when they hit a different course on occasion and the Black Rock golf club in Hagerstown, Maryland may be the place to test this theory.

With a slope rating of 111 from the white tees and 124 from the blue, the several tees at every tee box makes the course challenging and yet fun for golfers of every skill level. The 18 holes curve through the countryside of the Shenandoah Valley for the front nine of the golf club and through the Appalachian Mountains on the back nine, creating a scenic view of northern Maryland.

Many fairways are carved into the landscape and Black Rock golf club offers a beautiful large practice green complete with a chipping are and sand trap for more practice before hitting the first tee. Grass of the greens offer many straight putting opportunities and will grab a lofted ball onto the green and hold it for the first putt.

The Courses Are Like Walking Through Nature's Best

From the first hole Par 5 of 465 yards from the white tees to the 18th hole of 386 yards, each hole offers a view of nature. Water hazards come into play on four holes, beginning with number four. The 334 yard hole may appear easy but any ball that sails over the green will end up swimming towards the bottom of a small lake at Black Rock golf club.

Hole number 9 has a large lake guarding the green of this 396 yard par 4 hole at Black Rock golf club and on hole 13, a double dog leg to the right has water on the left side of the front of the green, which is also guarded by a trio of sand traps. The final hole, number 18 is a straight run to end the round. The 324 yard par four has water immediately in front of the green. The second shot will need to float the water or lay up and use a snipet to place the ball on the green for a good finish without getting wet.
