Mountain Branch Golf Course

  60 Reviews

I played this course several times years ago and found it to be worth the price. Today its not worth half what they charge, fairway grass is gone at several holes, greens very ruff, and its just a shame use to be a beautiful place to play. Harford county needs to help some of the golf courses or they will go under as its seems the case at Mountain Branch.

He would not play this course again.

After reading a lot of the reviews was very tentative on playing here. Had a Raspberry Trail day here and was well worth it. In top 5 courses I've played this year, Bulle Rock is better but not by much. They layout is fun and somewhat challenging, greens are quick but fair, and fairways are in great shape considering the weather we had this year so far. If you are up in that air on playing here look on their website for pictures, it was an enjoyable round. I would play early it does get crowded fast, if it was closer would play here more often, just gonna have to settle for trail card days here. Oh balls were not included in price someone did mention that in a previous post.

Been a couple years since I played here and I really enjoyed the beauty of this course. Unique layout, memorable holes. All the summer rain has taken its toll on a few fairways, but compared to other high end courses I play, the course is in great condition. Cart path only was a physical challenge. Windy day so club selection also a challenge.

On the surface, you would think this would be an elite course, but geez, they just dont get it.... I'm a 6 handicap, so I'm not an idiot when it comes to golf.... I repeatedly have bad experiences at this course. For one, you absolutely need a range finder... they only seem to mark the 150, if they even do that... then a few land marks here and there... i personally dont bring one, i like to do the math from 100, 150, 200 marks... absolutely cant do that there,... then if you get pushed with the slow play, or play with a fair golfer, things get worse....warning, hole number, maybe 4, driveable blind par 4, your life is in danger.... Some small things... the golf cart was not cleaned, i mean, seriously,... paying higher prices, and you cant clean a cart.... they dont seem to care about the little things... weeding, flower beds, etc... they have a couple arrogant personalities on their staff, which is never pleasant.... things never go smooth when checking in, they always have a problem "with their system"... gets old. Sadly, i live 2 miles from this course and i never want to play it.

Have played golf at Mountain Branch about 10 times over the years. I have always loved the layout but the course conditions were never up to par. Played the course two weeks ago and could not believe how awful the course condition was. I first went to the range to see that we couldn't hit off grass and were hitting into mounds of dirt in the distance. That is fine I thought...it is an eye sore but it is just the range (no big deal). Then we started our round. First three holes were okay. From then on out the course conditions were the worst I have ever played on (I have a few hundred rounds under my belt). Every fairway of every hole seemed to be diseased. There was a 90/10 ratio of dirt to grass. At times it was hard to find grass on the fairway where you could move your ball. We had someone from out of town with us and just kept apologizing. There is an air of elitism at the course and I can't figure out why. They discounted the rate $10 prior to the round but did not explain why so the conditions were a surprise. $50 twilight greens fees is absolute robbery. I keep telling myself that I am never coming back but do love the layout. I think I will be following through with the not coming back statement this time.

He would not play this course again.
