Baltimore Country Club, East
Private, $125 - $125
Baltimore Country Club has been ranked as one of the top courses in the U.S. by Golf Magazine's panel of experts.
This club has two outstanding 18 hole courses. The East Course is the older of the two and one of A.W. Tillinghast's finest.
A parkland design that offers undulating fairways and mature trees, the most notable hole is the par-5 6th, known as "The Barn Hole." To reach the green in two, golfers must hit a tee shot over a barn (which is out-of-bounds) and cut the corner of this dogleg left.
The greens of the East Course are not as severely sloped as many Tillinghast designs, but several of the bunkers that protect them are deep and high-lipped.
Brian Silva lead a team in 1991 that did restoration work on the East Course, while the West Course, built in 1962, was redesigned by Bob Cupp and Tom Kite in 1990.
