With its natural beauty and rolling topography, the course encompasses some of the most scenic land that Maryland has to offer. Its breathtaking views combined with impeccably conditioned fairways and greens provide a challenging golf course that receives continuous praise from both occasional and accomplished golfers.
Joe Lee's Final Course Design
Encompassing over 150 acres of breathtaking views, Musket Ridge was the final gem by renowned golf course architect Joe Lee. He called this Maryland course the finest property he ever worked with, and used the natural contours to sculpt an exciting and picturesque course.
From the first hole's dramatic elevated tee shot, you'll get a taste of the majestic Maryland landscape that is highlighted by Joe Lee's signature layout. Undulating greens, strategically located visible hazards from elevated tee boxes, and unique bunkering are trademarks of this superbly conditioned golf course. Musket Ridge's two nines, the Blue and the Ridge, move uphill and downhill – some holes ride high, others are benched into the slope, and a few meander through a meadow. There are four sets of tee boxes to choose from, and risk/reward shot options throughout the course.
