Fox Hollow, Greystone and Rocky Point will open on Friday, May 8th followed by Diamond Ridge and the Woodlands on May 9th. Tee times will open for online booking at 5 p.m. today (May 6th).  

During this phase, it will be necessary to take precautions to promote social distancing and to prevent large indoor gatherings. Therefore, Baltimore County Golf is taking the following steps, including but not limited to:

Social Distancing: Golfers are asked to remain 6’ from other players, not gather in groups of more than 10 and exit the property following their round of golf.
Pace of Play: With 14 minute tee time intervals and each player having their own cart, pace of play is expected to be 4 hours or less to complete the round.
