Fowler’s Mill is a Course to “Dye” For

Play golf long enough and you’ll likely develop a healthy love-hate relationship with the game. It’s a dynamic Pete Dye, who designed many of America’s most famous and iconic golf courses, leaned into heavily with every inch of dirt he moved.

Baltimore’s Classic Five Preserves the Spirit of Public Play

Every course has a story to tell. With over 400 years of collective history, Baltimore MD’s five municipal layouts have plenty to say about society, community, commitment and pride.

A Blast from the Past

Mill Quarter Plantation shows that, like music and sit-coms, the best things did come out of the late 1960s and early ‘70s.

One Last Ace Card Up My Sleeve

“Persistence Personified.” If you click onto professional golfer Jay Delsing’s webpage, you’ll find those two words scrawled across the top. Makes sense, really. That’s because the very likable pro from Missouri sits atop the all-time record list with a staggering 565 PGA TOUR starts without a win.

Iron Valley Sets the Bar

The goal from the start was to offer something different from start to finish and Iron Valley exceeds that by a country mile.
