Are you sure you played Waverly Woods? We ask because we have had people confuse us with Woodlands in the past, and I just drove the entire course and the rough is all cut very tight!

Although it is early in the season Waverly Woods was in its' typically very good condition. The greens need to grow in a bit but the fairways and tee boxes were ship-shape. Not many people playing so the pace of play was excellent. The staff was as courteous and helpful as ever. I am fortunate to have such an excellent public course no more that 5 minutes from my house.

Waverly Woods is a great course. Starting out with the friendly staff of Tom and Joe. The course was good shape for this time of year. The aeration throughout the course will reap benefits in a month or so. The greens rolled very good for still having aeration holes and top dressing. All around great course.

Want to play a course that comes out of the winter in better than average conditions? Play Waverly Woods. The course was in very good shape for Mid March. The Greens Crew was out blowing winter debris off the fairways. Fairways were being moved. Greens were mowed. A very pleasant experience.

Also noticed that a lot of clearing under trees was done in some areas and there was a lot of new sod in some surrounds, probably from last fall, that looks great! Kudos to the GC Superintendent and his crew.

Just a note that the greens have not grow out of winter yet. So, the poa is ahead of the bent creating a bumpy situation on some greens but that is normal for this time of year. No one should expect in season conditions in March.

I have played this course many times. The greens on the front were not that great today. Mainly because the weather and it is winter. When the weather gets better the greens will get better. The reset of the course was great. Tom, at check-in is always great. Great customer service with a smile.

with it being winter time this course is in great shape all around. the greens are not summer time greens but are still In great shape. the only unfortunate thing about this course is the amount of divots in the fairway from folks not replacing them.

First off the tee, so we set the pace of play, that was a great way to start the round! The course layout was challenging and suits most all levels of recreational golf players. Course recently had aerated greens to get ready for the prime time off the year...other than that, everything was great. No complaints. One of my favorite courses played in the DMV so far.

All employees are friendly. Course was in decent shape, greens were consistent except for one hole that was a bit slower than the rest. Played early, so course was still a bit wet.

Was a single who joined a group of 3, had no issues with the group. Finished round in less than 4 hours.

Will def. recommend this course..

this use to be the course that you would travel out to from Baltimore / Towson to get an upscale experience. Greens used to be pristine - quick, consistent. Not this year - just horrible the 2 times i have played, back in May and now this past weekend. the rough is a mess, around the greens are awful - have to hit and chip off of bare spots, all over the place. It use to be a gem - but not any longer. seems to to have been a slow slide backwards for 2- 3 years now. Staff is stuff in general. I will continue to head up to York, when I can. Not worth the trip nor cost any longer.
