Furnace Bay Golf Course – Perryville, MD
Furnace Bay Golf Course was built in 2000 and designed by John Thompson.
This is a beautiful course with nice scenic views of Furnace Bay with a pretty Georgian-style clubhouse.
This is a fairly challenging course although beginners would find this course to be fair.
The layout is distinctive with some unique holes. There are quite a few doglegs, especially on the front 9’s.
The interesting thing about the doglegs is that they are all 90 degrees or lower at the angle of the curve. And that makes for blind shots. The back 9’s will help compensate for the losses on the front, which is considered to be less challenging.
Shot accuracy is rewarded as the landing areas are narrow with pinch-necked greens.
The course is a short one measuring only 6330 yards from the tips and there is only 1 hole that measures more than 500 yards.
There are 4 sets of tee boxes that cater to golfers at all skill levels for a challenging and fun round of golf.
This is an ideal course for family outings as well as for beginners.
