Eagle’s Landing Golf Course

You’ll have the sea as your soundtrack for the day.

GolfAdvisor.com rated Eagle’s Landing its top course in Maryland in 2016, and it’s easy to see why. Designed by internationally recognized Dr. Michael Hurdzan, the 7,000-yard course meanders through nine lakes and ponds, with gorgeous fairways and contoured greens.
