Hobbit's Glen Golf Club

Columbia, Maryland | 18 holes | Par: 72 | 7078 yards

This three-time host for a Champions Tour stop is in better condition now from when it was the site for the State Farm Senior Classic. Fresh off a complete overhaul, the greens are rolling true like a marble on a slate of glass and the fairways just might be the best in the state. But of course we're going to say that… so don't take our word for it. The current conditioning is better than ever. We have been voted Best Golf Club in Howard County, Maryland by Columbia Magazine's Howard County Readers' Poll eight years in a row, beginning in 2000. Playing just a bit over 7,000 yards from the back tees and 5,400 from the front, this course was built for the legends of golf as well as the demanding local player. With an incredible practice area, phenomenal golf course layout and one of the best restaurants in the Baltimore and Washington area, this is the premier membership in Howard County. With slight undulation, the course moves through woodlands and around bunkers and wetlands. As you stand on the first tee, a beautiful par four that moves slightly back to the left, think of the legends of the game who have walked these same grounds.
