BMPs For Maryland Golf Courses
Manor Country Club is a traditional private country club founded in 1922. As we approach our centenary, we are looking for a highly motivated individual to guide our course into the future.
The original 27-hole property was designed by William S. Flynn. The membership enjoyed this wonderful golf course until 2005 when Arthur Hills renovated the 18-hole championship golf course.
Today, Manor Country Club, with 27 holes of golf, 10 tennis courts (four of which are ‘bubbled’ for year-round enjoyment), and two swimming pools, retains the beauty of the rolling hills, water features, foliage, and trees that were evident at its founding. Its clubrooms, dining rooms, golf, tennis and swim programs are vibrant, with an active family-centric focus. Unlike the property in 1922, the club is now surrounded by homes, roadways and commerce however, it still provides a quiet retreat within a tract of natural beauty.
Manor Country Club’s excellent foundation of amenities, spread out in a campus-like setting, enjoys great outdoor spaces for entertainment and recreational activities. Truly a Club for “the family”, Manor is constantly hosting a large number of activities and special events, including the annual Independence Day fireworks celebration that draws well over 1,700 members and guests.
The Club has approximately 810 members in all categories, with approximately 555 in Active/Community Golf categories. Approximately 22,000 rounds of golf are played annually on the Championship course. The 9-hole “Harry Pitt” is a shorter course and rounds are counted separately.
