The Course at Boonsboro

  • The greens consist of a mixture of Poa Annua and Bentgrass.
  • The greens range in size from roughly 3,000 square feet to just over 6,000 square feet.
  • The greens are sloped from back to front and are a key characteristic in managing your golf ball around the course.
  • The par threes vary from short to mid iron shots to fairway metal shots and demand accuracy.
  • The par fours are the backbone of any course and Boonsboro is no exception.
  • Our par five holes are not long by today’s standards, but they still offer a challenge for the majority of golfers.

A “two grass” system is utilized on our fairways.  A base of bermudagrass provides good summertime conditions, while the majority of our season is played on a perennial ryegrass over-seed.

The roughs are a mixture of cool season and warm season grasses that are somewhat subject to rainfall, but present a fair challenge when fairways are missed.
