Featured Golf Course Review:
Brantwood Golf Club -- Good course for the money
Review by: Brian This is a fairly average course with a few challenging holes. It is very easy to get tee times and the staff is always pleasant. Drainage is an issue on several holes which leads to cart paths only more often than not. Cheapest beers I've ever seen on a course. Always a plus!

Northwest Park Golf Course - Main Course -- Great course, slow play, nazi starters, maintenance in way
Review by: Maryland Mike Overall: Fine course, but the experience is soured by the starters, the maintenance staff and the pace of play. Potential to be a 5 star course, but it is unlikely that it will ever be better than 3 stars, there are just too many negatives. ------------------------- Positives: Long, open course, challenging because of it's length. To score here, you must hit two solid shots on every par 4 or 5, no driver/wedge here unless you drive it 300+. Very well maintained. $28 walking during the week is great. ------------------------- Negatives: Overall, the sense that you get is that the staff really doesn't want you there, that golfers are a burdeon. Maintenence crew is all over the place, typically I encounter them on a minimum of 6 holes. Instead of mowing from 18 and 9 backwards, they mow in the same direction as play, sometimes they will follow you for several holes in a row. I once had a guy on a tractor mowing the rough from 11 thru 17 (how could this happen? read 'pace of play' below). I appreciate the course condition, but scheduling the work to be golfer friendly would be very easy and would not slow them down at all. The Starters: As those who play here know, 2 of the starters have nasty attitudes and dispositions, starting the round on an unpleasant note. These two also like to play marshal, leaving the starter shack (and loads of golfers seeking a start time) in a cart to harass golfers. There are marshals, these two just don't care about stepping on coworkers toes. This is a public course and the people are going to keep coming. If staff isn't mentally equipped to deal with it, replace them with people who are. Pace Of Play: Slow, slow, slow. This course is slow and will always be slow. This is due to the volume of golfers (a ton) and it's length. From the tips it is a couple hundred of yards longer than U.S Open courses and the requirement to really hit a couple of pure ones on every par 4 or 5 is something 95% of golfers can't do, so it is group after group with someone hacking away for 10 plus shots on every 4 or 5 (pick up at double par? No way, I paid my greens fees). Expect 5 to 6 hours unless you sneak out early.
