“From the first hole, which provides a sweeping view of the course and surrounding foothills, Musket Ridge presents more of a test of accuracy than length.”
Western Maryland & Frederick County, GolfStyles Washington - June 2005 

Upscale Escapes – Musket Ridge Golf Club
GolfStyles Washington - May 2005

Musket Ridge Named One of the 100 Must-Play Couses of the Mid-Atlantic  “From the clubhouse, which is set at the highest point on the course, the panoramic golf view is spectacular. Set on a ridge, the Musket Ridge layout is solid all the way around. Each hole is cut nicely into the mountain terrain without any gimmicks… The total package is certainly comparable to the best in the region. The mix of hard and demanding holes with a few breathers gives it a nice pace. But beware, it can exact its toll.” 
GolfStyles Washington - March 2005

Part of the 2005 Lincoln Player’s Series Played at Musket Ridge – “The Player’s Series is a season-long sequence of tournaments… at some of the Middle Atlantic’s upscale favorites.”
GolfStyles Washington - March 2005

"This daily-fee golf course is arguably one of the best in the entire Washington region....worth the drive-it's that good."

Musket Ridge Can Hold Its Own  [LINK] [TEXT]
Mid-Atlantic Golf, August 14, 2003 "...Musket Ridge set on a ridge in Maryland's Middletown Valley...isn't a kiddie ride. There are some big-boy par 4s that test the better player and three of the four par 5s can be reached by better players, while leaving an out for the not so bold. But that makes sense. Call it the gentle touch of a wise [Joe Lee] old soul."
Mike Stachura - Golf Digest, August 2002
"Lee works in sod the way Scorcese works in celluloid…"
Barker Davis - The Washington Times - April 25, 2002
"If golf were meant to be played in the mountains and it certainly was - it would be difficult to find a better location." Jeff Thoreson - Washington Golf Monthly - April 2002
