    About Rocky Point

    Opened in 1971, Russell Roberts skillfully created Rocky Point to be a challenging yet fair test of golf. Preserved natural wetlands meander through this picturesque setting, offering some of the prettiest views in all of golf in the Baltimore area.

    While the length at Rocky Point is only 6,650 yards; architect Roberts added some deception and difficulty to the golf course. Rocky Point, with its many elevation changes, plays longer than its posted yardage. Par at Rocky Point is set at 72, with a fairly open front nine and a back nine that is more tree lined and high-lighted by the three par 5’s. Greens are large and inviting, yet deceptive with undulation and strategically placed bunkers.

    Enjoy the picturesque views from our newly expanded tee boxes while enjoying the exceptional value that is Rocky Point.
