Golf Testimonials

"A visit to Musket Ridge in the fall, when the leaves are turning, is one of the nicest experiences a golfer can have."
Kim Eisler, Washingtonian.com  

"A stunning piece of property and an even better golf course. Joe Lee does such a great job."
Sonny Smith - 2 handicap, Member Jupiter Hills, Tequesta, Florida

"Musket Ridge is a Joe Lee design that, while fairly new, feels like a mature beauty that takes in some of the most impressive sightlines in the Mid-Atlantic.  If you’re having one of those days on the course, be especially mindful to take in the scenery. Trust me, it will calm your nerves and maybe even elevate your game.”
Gene Wang, washingtonpost.com

"Musket Ridge is the ideal fit for its surroundings." 
Jason Barbato, The Frederick News-Post - July 26, 2007

"I had the opportunity to play Musket Ridge in its infancy in the fall of 2001 while driving from Columbus, Ohio to Baltimore. It was such an exhilarating experience, that I stopped again on the way back home. A world-class experience at an affordable price from a guy who has played them all."
Chip Neale - 6 handicap, Member Muirfield Village and Scioto, Dublin, Ohio

"Without question, Musket Ridge belongs high up on the list of the best facilities in the reachable Washington area.  I can honestly say I've never heard a negative comment about it."
Jeffrey A. Rendall, GolftheMidAtlantic.com

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

"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 

"Like my ancestor, Robert E. Lee, who marched his army across the property en-route to Antietam 140 years earlier, at Musket Ridge I decided that we needed to do what all good generals do - seize the high ground and work the ridge lines."
Joe Lee - May 10, 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
