Clustered Spires Golf Course

  220 Reviews

Course was in nice shape considering it's December. The leaves were blown off the greens and fairways.
Staff very friendly.
Major work being done on hole #16 but the temporary hole on #16 and the temporary tee on #17 were fine. Neither was a major drawback. The work has to be done sometime; better now than in the spring or summer. Will definitely go back.

He would play this course again.

Considering the weather (on the cold side) it was a good day. I enjoy playing here and playing at the Golf Now Hot Deal rate was a bonus.
The staff was very friendly and helpful. The course was in pretty good shape considering we haven't had any Spring weather yet. The tee boxes on Holes 16 and 17 are still temporarily re-located but it wasn't a big deal.
I will be going back.

I've always enjoyed playing at Clustered Spires. It's a good layout, and in season, they really go the extra steps to make it an upscale experience. Obviously, they aren't going to be as fully staffed in February... The course was in good condition given the recent weather, but there is construction that has one hole closed and the following hole is split into two. Not ideal, but ok. Wish they would have mentioned something on the website. On a related note, Monocacy Blvd is closed to traffic, so you may need to plan an extra 5-10 minutes travel time.
My "staff friendliness" score dropped on this particular round due to having to wait until my official tee time even though I arrived ~90 minutes prior to my time and there were plenty of open spots (even open tee times). I kind of get that, but by the time I was finally at the first tee, the course was now crowded and the pace of play was much slower than had I been allowed to start when I was ready. Oh well... At least the pace wasn't so slow that I had to end my round early (which at times I was concerned about).

To start, as other reviewers have mentioned, if you book through GolfNow expect to be treated like a second class citizen. I was initially pleased when booking became available through GolfNow as I could get a tee time as a single. Prior to that, they would not schedule singles and when asked about available times/slots the standard answer was always after 2PM (not true). Now you can get a single time BUT they will not allow you to go out until that time even if the tee is wide open. Also the course is under construction. #16 - a signature long par 3 is completely closed and replaced with a dinky 110 yard temporary hole with no real green. 17 is no longer played from its correct tees but instead from a temporary tee in the driving range which is little more than a muddy patch of grass. With this in mind, you still get to pay full price on green fees (???) and nowhere on the website is this mentioned. I won't be going back until the course is in its original layout and I can stomach feeling like they are doing me a favor.
