The Five Farms Golf Courses
The A. W. Tillinghast designed Par 70 East Course, with back-to-front pitched greens, limited water hazards, and 96 bunkers, has received many honors, including making Golfweek’s list of “America’s Top 100 Classic Courses” (pre 1960) numerous times, most recently in 2017. It is also listed as the best Classic or Modern (post 1960 design) Course in the state of Maryland. A restoration project was completed in 2015 by Keith Foster, bringing the course back to Tillinghast’s original 1924 design.
Baltimore Country Club’s second course at Five Farms, the West, was redesigned in 1990 by Bob Cupp and Champions Tour member and World Golf Hall of Fame member, Tom Kite. In 2012, the course was renovated under the direction of Keith Foster. The Par 72 West Course gives members two outstanding golf courses to choose from on a daily basis.
The Club was named one of the “100 Most Prestigious Clubs in the World” by LINKS magazine. The USGA lists Baltimore Country Club as one of the first 100 clubs established in the United States.
