Baltimore County Golf Course Policies  

General Policies

  • The Golf Course reserves the right to send all groups off the tee as foursomes.
  • A maximum of 2 golf carts per foursome will be allowed on the golf course.  In cases where a golfer would prefer to have their own cart, they will be subject to paying for both seats of the cart.  This will only be allowed if there are enough carts to cover the players booked for the day (Golf Professionals discretion).
  • Each player must have their own set of golf clubs and golf bag.
  • All golfers must follow and obey the cart rules for the day as set by the course Superintendent (this is for the safety of the golfers and benefit of the turf grass). 
  • PWD (Persons with Disabilities) will be available on most days when the carts are restricted to the cart path through the use of our GPS System on our carts.  Placing the cart in this mode will allow closer access to greens and tees.  There will be times when no one will be allowed access off of the cart path due to imminent damage to the turf grass or for safety reasons to the golfers.  Those who are eligible for a PWD must present a valid and dated Doctor’s script or a Motor Vehicle hang tag with appropriate paperwork that is current. View our full handicap policy here.
  • Players are required to keep motorized golf carts a minimum of 30 feet from tees and greens while, at the same time, adhering to the intent and purpose of all directional signage, ropes, physical barriers and other daily restrictions as playing conditions may warrant. 
  • All Pass Holders must pay the Advantage Card rate if they are playing in a tournament or any other contracted event through Baltimore County Golf.
  • BCRA reserves the right to alter, change or amend program rules at anytime.

Food and Beverage

  • All food and beverage must be purchased at the golf course.  No outside food and beverage can be brought onto the facility. Violators may be asked to leave the facility without a refund.
  • Coolers are not allowed on the golf course (except for medical reasons which must be cleared by the Golf Professional on duty).

No Show Policy - Advantage Card Holders and Annual Pass Holders

  • No Shows will be charged to the "Captain" or the player that made the reservation.  The fee will be $30 per player per No Show.  If the group was scheduled as a Foursome and all players No Show, the "Captain" is charged 4 x $30 = $120
  • No shows are defined as a tee time booked by a player in advance who fails to cancel the time more than 24 hours in advance and does not show up for the designated time (or shows up with less players than booked for).
  • Please keep in mind that we understand weather can change inside of 24 hours and emergencies do occur.  We will be understanding of these issues, but do require a phone call to the Golf Shop if these things occur within the 24 hour period.
  • In addition, if your group shrinks in size inside of the 24 hour period, we simply ask that you call the Golf Shop with enough notice that we have an opportunity to rebook the slot that was cancelled.
  • No Shows are the main reason green fees increase.  The revenue lost by players who book a time, fail to show and thus the tee time goes empty costs golf courses a large percentage of anticipated revenue annually.
  • No Shows also eliminate the possibility for other golfers who want to play an opportunity to book a time.  
  • No Show charges will be charged to the "Captain" and the card they have on file the same day of the missed reservation.  
  • Advantage Card Pass Holders and Four Star Pass Holders who accumulate 8 or more No Shows during their active year will have the card "Suspended" until they have a conversation with the Director of Golf Operations to determine if the card will be reactivated.  If the Pass Holders reach 8 more No Shows following that conversation, the card will be permanently suspended with no refund.

If you were charged a No Show and feel it was done in error, please fill out this FORM for a review of the account

Personal Vehicles (Motorized or Manually Driven)

  • Baltimore County Golf (BCG) has two (2) options for navigating the golf course. The first is to walk (when those rates are available) and in doing so you my use a push/pull cart or a motorized cart that is built to carry your golf clubs only.  The second is to rent a golf cart from the course for your 9 or 18-hole round of golf.  The golf carts owned and rented by BCG undergo scheduled maintenance practices by a certified mechanic employed by the manufacture the carts were purchased from.  This allows guests to rent golf carts with the comfort of knowing the carts are in good working order.  In addition, with the GPS systems we are able to geo-fence the facility and control the speed of the carts which allows the golfers to stay away from some of the more undulating areas on the golf course.
  • Because safety is a top concern, we do not allow any personal vehicles to be used on our courses.  This includes personal golf carts, scooters, one person carts, bicycles (either motorized or pedal) and other types of vehicles on the market that can be purchased by consumers.  We appreciate your understanding of this policy.  Those persons with disabilities (PWD) who own a personal Segway must follow the Segway Policy in order to be accommodated.

Age Restrictions / Caddy Program

  • Children under six (6) years of age are allowed on the course with adult supervision, their own set of clubs, knowledge of the game, ability to keep up with the required pace of play and a paid greens fee.
  • Caddy Program is not available on Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays or Holidays.  Caddy Program is only available Monday through Thursday and carts may not always be available for guests based on the capacity of the tee sheet.  There may be times when the Golf Professional on duty may not allow guests on the course for various reasons. Caddies are considered a non golfer that are ten (10) years of age or older.  The caddy and the golfer must sign a Golfer/Guest waiver in the Golf Shop.  Guests who ride along must pay the appropriate caddy fee ($16 for the seat).   It is always best to call the day of play to see if this option is available.  
  • Only persons 18 years of age or older may rent and operate a golf cart. 

Dress Code

  • The dress code for the courses managed by Baltimore County Revenue Authority reflects the Authority’s emphasis on providing a family oriented atmosphere for all golfers. The required attire includes clothing that has been either manufactured and/or specifically designed to wear on the golf course (recognizing that there can be varying designs and styles within that category of sports/golf clothing). The Authority reserves the right to refuse entry to the golf course to those individuals whose clothing is, in the sole opinion of the manager on duty, inconsistent with our facilities’ family/golf oriented emphasis. Examples of “inappropriate” clothing, relative to the Authority’s stated emphasis, include shirts or shorts with offensive images and/or statements, cut-off or ripped clothing, tank tops, bathing suits, mid-riff blouses/tops, etc. 
  • All of the golf courses require rubber soled shoes and/or rubber spikes. Metal and/or ceramic spikes as well as sport cleats, high heels or deep-soled boots and the like will not be allowed as it will cause undue damage to the greens.

Pets/Animals on the Golf Course

While we understand the relationship many golfers have with their pets, we do not allow pets on the golf course, driving range or food and beverage areas in order to provide a safe and enjoyable experience to all of our patrons.
