Greystone Golf Course

What characteristics make up a great course? Is it the quality layout and design? How about good practice facilities with first class amenities?

For some it might just be a combination of all at a reasonable price. Well if you're one of the "some", then you need look no further than the Greystone Golf Course in White Hall Maryland.

Opening in 1997 the course was designed by Joe Lee - golf course architect of Doral Resort's famed Blue Monster.

The course is nestled among the rolling hills and farmland just fifteen minutes north of Baltimore. The secluded location gives the impression of being miles away from the city, yet at the same time, conveniently located and accessible for Baltimore county residents. Greystone offers a individualistic style and class all its own.

With over 140 feet in elevation change the course presents a variety of lies and slope angles for approach shots. The highest point on the course is a large knoll perched as thrown for the majestic clubhouse. The clubhouse restaurant and patio provides an expansive outlook of the entire course, including views of 14 of the 18 holes of the course.

The bent grass fairways, greens and tees weave like a tapestry among the seven ponds and eighty plus sand bunkers conceiving a most impressive golfing venue.

What separates Greystone from other courses is it's ability to give the golfer an array of different ways to attack the course and capitalize on scoring. Yet at the same time the course stands guard to check against over aggressive play. With strategically placed bunkers, water hazards and blind shots, Greystone only rewards those smart enough to give the proper respect the course deserves. The design is truly unique and unlike any other in the Mid-Atlantic.

Amigos favorite Hole: The 402-yard Number 7 Par 4 was our choice of favorite at Greystone. Labeled "Beauty and the Beast", the hole requires two exact length shots to have any attempt at birdie or par.

When contemplating your tee shot, refer to the course guide club selection assistance. Depending upon the tee set you're playing, longer hitters will require a long iron of fairway wood to position themselves with a reasonable approach shot to the green.

Once safe and in the fairway, you're left with a very testy second shot over a pond to the green. When most think pond the shot doesn't seem to menacing, but with nearly 140 yards of carry over a pond to the green located just on the other side, it is one of the most difficult approach shots anywhere on the course.

Like most all the greens on the course, number 7 slopes from back to front and if safely on the green after two you should have a run at birdie or well-deserved par to place on the scorecard.





Review Date: 06/19/2004

Course review ratings are conducted on a five point scale. ( 1 = Double Bogey 3 = Par 5 = Eagle)

Tees:
Perfect conditioning and with a variety of lengths the course sets up well for all playing abilities. There is a big difference in length between the white and black tees especially on the Par 3's.
 
Fairways:
Fairway perfection in every aspect. The immaculately cut rolling bent grass fairways set up each contour of the fairways to visually shape each hole.

Rough:
Two cuts of rough are present beyond the fairways. The first cut is mildly discernable from the fairway and the second cut is thicker and more punishing. Even though the second cut will require additional shot selection analysis, it doesn't pose any extreme challenge and is manageable even for us average golfers.

Traps:
The course is very well bunkered both in the fairways and around the greens. Unfortunately for us the prior week presented the area with heavy down pours and effected some of the bunkers adversely.

Greens:
Excellent greens with dominate slope from back to front on all holes. The large and demanding surface of the greens present subtle breaks with moderate true pace. Like all good greens it has the perfect balance of challenge and playability.

Amenities:
Excellent facilities including nice range and practice area. The clubhouse is first class and the outdoor pavilion is available for large groups and outings. Large putting green sits just below the clubhouse and large chipping area is also available.

Staff Services:
The staff was extremely helpful both before and after our round. The starter was very informative giving any and all information about the course before our round. The marshal was extremely helpful not only minding pace but stopping by a few times to offer his local knowledge and recommendations on how to play certain holes.

Pace of Play:
At 4 hours and 28 minutes we made excellent time on a course that was busy during our round. No wait on any hole.

Overall Average: 4.8, Birdie Course
Outstanding Course, must play recommendation

We would like to thank Mr. George Hale of the Baltimore County Revenue Authority for welcoming us out to conduct the course review.
