What makes a great day of golf? Some might argue a "good score"....others might say "a round with good friends" but the real hardcore golfer would say "36-holes instead of just 18". Lets face it's hard to find time for nine holes some weeks but for those perfect summer days and special times with family and friends, nothing beats two rounds back-to-back.
In the Mid-Atlantic there are many wonderful courses to play but few offer 36-holes of great golf like the Compass Pointe Golf Course in Pasadena Maryland. In 2003 the first 18 holes of the Lindsay Ervin design opened and the following two nines opened a couple of years later. Today, all 36 make for two compelling different tracks offering a complex mixture of duality not surpassed anywhere in the region.

A couple of weeks ago we attended the official grand opening of 1757 Golf Club in Ashburn Virginia. The course and property has gone through multiple transformations during a long and troubled gestation period but the overall outcome seems worth the wait.
The club features first-class facilities, a tour caliber practice area and a course with plenty of challenge and variety to entertain all skill levels.
If you haven't made your way out of town or just don't want to fight the traffic like us…then do yourself a favor and get out to 1757 Golf Club pronto!
During our trip to Wisp Resort in western Maryland last month we were invited to play a preview round of the font nine at Lodestone Golf Club. The private Hale Irwin design is scheduled to open next year and in our mind will vault itself as one of the best courses anywhere in the state.
The nine holes we played were truly amazing. Sitting atop Marsh Mountain the course is the highest elevated course in the state offering dramatic views, elevation changes and is one of the most beautifully designed courses we've had the pleasure to play anywhere.
