Baltimore Golf

Golf may not be the first thing you think of when you think of Baltimore, but there’s actually several dozen golf courses in and around the city, many of them quite challenging. Baltimore’s first public golf course, Clifton Park, was established in 1915 on the grounds of Johns Hopkins summer mansion. It’s still in use today, offering golfers a green retreat in the midst of an urban landscape.

Other courses in the city offer wooded landscapes, tranquil watersheds, and plenty of wildlife. Baltimore is the past home of several PGA and LPGA Tournaments, as well as the Eastern Invitational Open. Arnold Palmer won his second American tournament here and Nancy Lopez won her second professional tournament.

There are dozens of courses, but whichever one you choose, Baltimore’s golf courses offer serene settings and the ideal retreat from meetings, conventions, tradeshows, seminars and work. Some are a 10-minute cab ride away from Baltimore’s convention hotels and business district, while others require a short trip into the suburbs. But all offer unique views and a challenging game, and if you’re a golfer visiting the city, you won’t want to miss them.
